PDO Thread Lifts

When signs of aging start to creep up on us, looking in the mirror can be disappointing. The crows feet and the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines can make us wish we had our supple, vibrant skin back. Perhaps you’ve tried a range of options that haven’t worked, but surgery is not something you want to entertain. The good news is that when you come to see Dr. Catharine Crawford at Prosilience Studio, she can offer a PDO Thread Lift in Arlington, MA (just 30 minutes northwest of downtown Boston) to tighten and lift your face and skin, without having to go under the knife! 

PDO thread lifts- what

What are PDO Thread Lifts?

A PDO Thread Lift Treatment is a non-surgical alternative to having a surgical face or neck lift. It is a highly effective anti-aging treatment that uses surgical-grade threads to tighten and lift the skin to a more youthful position with overall improved skin texture and quality. PDO stands for polydioxanone, the type of thread Dr. Crawford uses, which is a medical-grade dissolvable suture consisting of protein fibers that have been used in wound repairs and numerous surgical procedures around the world. PDO Thread lifts are FDA-approved and have gained popularity over the years to treat and improve facial skin conditions in cosmetic medicine. It is safe for the human body and no allergy test is needed.

What are the benefits of PDO Thread Lifts?

PDO Thread Lifts in the greater Boston area can treat the following problems: 

  • Sagging jowls
  • Sagging cheek skin
  • Droopy eyelids
  • Smoker lines
  • Forehead creases

This is by no means an exhaustive list, and when you speak with Dr. Crawford for a consultation, she can advise the ways a PDO Thread Lift can benefit you and restore your youthful appearance. 


Who are the best candidates for PDO Thread Lifts?

Arlington and Boston PDO Thread Lifts are ideal for patients between the ages of 30 to 65, with mild to moderate skin elasticity. It is ideal for patients who want to avoid a surgical facelift, but rather actively stimulate their own collagen and elastin production to achieve a more natural and gradual result that “ages with you”. PDO Thread Lifts can be used alongside other non-surgical skin tightening lifting treatments and injectables to provide even longer-lasting results.

We can also recommend this procedure for patients who are generally healthy and have realistic goals in mind. If you are interested in getting a PDO Thread Lift to help you slow down the aging process, book a consultation with Dr. Crawford today.

First Steps

What’s the First Step?

The first step on the road to achieving youthful, vibrant skin is to book a consultation with Dr. Crawford. During the consultation we will discuss every aspect of the treatment with you, so you know what to expect. From the tools being used to the price of the treatment, you will have all the information you need. Dr. Crawford will take the time to look at the areas on your skin and face that you are looking to improve and assess how PDO Thread Lifts will benefit you. If she has any concerns, these will be discussed during your consultation, as Dr. Crawford will never recommend a treatment or procedure that may potentially have adverse effects. This is also your opportunity to learn more about the treatment and ask questions you may have. 


What to expect on the day of a PDO Thread Lifts treatment

On the day of your PDO Thread Lift treatment after arriving at our office, you will be administered a local anesthesia to numb the treatment areas, minimizing discomfort and pain throughout the procedure. Some patients don’t feel much. Others feel tugging, or say it feels ‘intense’. Next, Dr. Crawford or your provider will perform the lift on the focus areas. 

The procedure consists of carefully inserting the dissolvable PDO threads into the targeted areas of your face using a thin needle or cannula. These cannulas pass through several layers of your skin and stabilize the threads so your skin can be tightened. The threads will be strategically placed to lift the skin, as discussed during your consultation. After the threads are anchored, the excess threads are cut off. The procedure can take up to an hour.

Once the procedure is complete, we will give you all the necessary information for post-recovery and release you to enjoy the rest of your day.

PDO Thread Lifts recovery

This is a non-surgical procedure that carries low risk and minimal pain, which means most patients can resume their regular activities and go back to work the next day. 

You may experience some mild redness or soreness in the treatment areas, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication, or a topical ointment that Dr. Crawford can recommend. After any cosmetic procedure, we always advise taking care of your skin by wearing sunscreen, avoiding harsh weather conditions, having a healthy diet, and drinking plenty of water.
