PDO Thread Lift in Atlanta


The Inbetween Phase

Atlanta Plastic Surgery

It happens to everyone at some point. Perhaps you are facing a quagmire of decisions of whether or not you want plastic surgery or if you can hold off for a few years. The awkward phase of being too young for this or too old for that, but there is a point where action needs to be taken. Astra Plastic Surgery offers a non-surgical facelift alternative called the PDO Thread Lift. Atlanta area residents can enjoy the results of reduced fine lines and wrinkles, no incisions or scarring, no downtime, and long-lasting results.

What is a PDO Thread Lift treatment?

Polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift uses dissolvable, biodegradable sutures to tighten and lift your skin. The 45-minute procedure offers no incisions and zero downtime, making the PDO Thread Lift an excellent alternative to a traditional facelift.

PDO Thread lift is designed to serve two purposes - direct skin tightening and collagen formation. Once the PDO Thread lifts reposition your underlying tissues, you will see an immediate lift in reducing fine lines. Then as the PDO threads absorb into the body, they facilitate natural collagen stimulation.

PDO Thread Lift Procedure

The PDO Thread lift in Atlanta is an outpatient treatment. You will be given a local anesthetic, so it’s important to have someone drive you home.

Your treatment may take about 45 to 90 minutes but depends on the number of threads used. Once the PDO thread entry points are marked on your face, the threads are inserted and positioned accordingly. Once the threads are secured, the needles are removed.
