What is a PDO Threadlift?
Eterna offers PDO thread lifts. PDO threads can lift and tighten the skin of the face and neck. PDO threads are made from absorbable suture material originally designed for cardiac patients. Eterna carries two varieties of PDO threads: Nova & Mint. Nova threads are finer weight and last 6 months in the body. Mint threads are heavier weight and last 12 months in the body. Your provider will assist you in determining which type of PDO thread is best for you.
What are the benefits of a thread lift?
Beside the lift and tightening you receive to your skin after a thread lift, your body also produces other long-term benefits from the procedure. Over time, your body begins to heal and absorb the PDO thread that was placed inside. Thread lifts are collagen stimulating procedures. As your body absorbs the threads, collagen cells replicate around the area that was treated. Collagen is key to a youthful appearance. Stimulating collagen help us as we age by creating the plump, smooth appearance to the skin we all desire.
How often should I have a PDO Thread Lift?
Patients using Nova threads can expect a benefit from the thread for 6-10 months after treatment. The thread lasts 6 months and the collagen response continues for 4-6 months after the thread is absorbed. Treatment with Nova threads can be repeated to the same area as early as every six months.
Patients using Mint threads can expect a benefit from the thread for 12-18 months after treatment. The thread last 12 months in the body, and the collagen response continues for another 6 months after the thread is absorbed. Treatment with Mint threads can be repeated to the same area, as early as every 12 months.
