It's no secret PDO Threads are now a leading non-surgical technique used to achieve non surgical facial lifting and repositioning along with a more youthful-looking appearance.
While many continue to use anti-wrinkle and dermal filler injections, those seeking some type of facial lift for sagging skin often haven’t explored the option of having PDO Thread Lifts - which provide an almost immediate, long lasting lift with minimal post-treatment downtime. In this blog we explain what PDO Thread Lifts are, why they work, and how Dr. Anita Sabharwal can customize the thread lift procedure to fulfill your needs at Beautiful Orlando located in Kissimmee, Florida.
Beautiful Orlando's PDO Thread Lifts – Key Points:
Threads are dissolvable sutures inserted safely under the skin
They lift skin and tighten fat tissue to create definition and a more “V shape” to the face
45-60 minute procedure for often immediate effects with minimal downtime
Full results are seen after 6-8 weeks and can last up to 2 years
What is a PDO Thread Lift?
The ‘thread’ in a PDO Thread Lift consists of a material similar to that used for ‘stitches’ in tummy tucks and C-section. The same dissolvable sutures are slightly modified with little tags that help anchor them into tissue. A special blunt needle is used to pass the thread safely under the skin in specific areas to achieve the best cosmetic result.
Why do PDO Thread Lifts work?
Your skin is thicker than you think and has several layers. As we get older the deeper layers lose some key components such as collagen and elastin which means wrinkles and lines develop on the surface. The PDO threads can safely be inserted into the dermal layers of skin, the tags then latch onto the skin, so that when it is tightened it props the skin up. The effect is almost always immediate and our patients walk away with an instant difference in their faces.
PDO Thread Lifts improve in their effect over the following few weeks.
Over time the sutures dissolve on their own and are absorbed by natural processes in the body. In doing so our body leaves in place natural collagen which is key to providing youthful properties to the skin. The threads dissolve away, but your skin is left with a brand new revitalised deep layer of skin, which increases the rejuvenating lift. This means full results are seen after 6-8 weeks, but also explains how results can last for up to 2 years in many cases.

Dr. Anita Sabharwal's approach to Thread Lifts
Although PDO Thread Lifts are generally a safe and well tolerated procedure, being able to do it effectively and safely depends on a physician with good knowledge of the facial anatomy, its safe zones, as well as an intricate understanding of how to get the best cosmetic effect. Oftentimes, Dr. Sabharwal will recommend the combination treatment of PDO threads with Plasma and Hyaluronic Acid Filler. This will help target the most concerning areas in most patients which happen to be the loss of volume in the cheeks,appearance of jowls,hollows under eyes, dark circles, and the smile lines and droopy lips giving the appearance of a sad face.Combination of Plasma along with PDO thread lift,complements collagen production while improving the skin appearance and rejuvenating it.
