What Can You Expect During The PDO Threads Procedure?

The entirety of PDO Threads procedure is composed of nine vital steps, and these are the following:


Your journey begins with a consultation with a qualified medical professional who will assess your facial anatomy, discuss your aesthetic goals, and determine if PDO Threads suit you. They’ll explain the procedure, its benefits, and potential risks.


On the day of the procedure, the treatment area is cleansed, and local anesthesia may be applied to ensure your comfort during the process, which helps to minimize any discomfort you might experience during thread insertion.

Thread Insertion

The medical professional will use a thin needle or cannula to insert the PDO Threads beneath your skin. The threads are inserted according to a predetermined pattern that aligns with your desired lifting effect. The threads may have barbs or cones that engage with the tissues and hold them in a lifted position.

Lifting And Tightening

As the threads are inserted and positioned, you may feel a mild tugging sensation as the medical professional gently lifts and tightens the targeted areas. This immediate lifting effect can provide a preliminary idea of how your appearance will improve.


The procedure typically takes thirty minutes to an hour, depending on the treatment area and the number of threads used.


After the procedure, you might experience mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort around the insertion points. These side effects are temporary and should subside within a week or two. Your medical professional might provide you with guidelines for aftercare, including recommendations for minimizing swelling and promoting healing.


You’ll notice an immediate lifting effect due to the physical repositioning of the tissues. However, the full benefits of increased collagen production will become more apparent over the next few months. Your skin’s texture and tightness will continue to improve during this time.


Depending on your response to the procedure, your medical professional might recommend a follow-up appointment to assess the results and determine if additional treatments are needed to achieve your desired outcome.


The duration of the results can vary depending on your age, skin condition, and the type of threads used. Maintenance treatments might be suggested to prolong the effects.
