Frequently Asked Questions
What are PDO Max Threads?
PDOMax Thread treatments are non-surgical esthetic procedures that reposition static sagging skin.
What are PDO Max Threads made of?
PDO threads have been used in medicine for many years, mainly in surgery. PDO sutures have been used for Pediatric Cardiac surgery for over 35 years. They are made of a special dissolvable material called Polydioxanone (PDO). PDO makes up the fully absorbable sutures that have been used in orthopedics, surgery, and opthalmology for over 20 years.
What does the treatment entail?
There are no cuts and no incisions. A needle is used to create and opening for a blunt-tipped cannula to introduce the threads.the threads are barbed and are gently pressed into the underlying structures to suspend the skin.
How do they work?
PDQ threads have a powerful dual effect. The first is to reposition skin, giving a lifted effect. The second is to stimulate your body's own collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
When do you see results?
A rejuvenated appearance can be seen immediately following the treatment; however, the results will improve in the following days and weeks as the PDQ stimulates new collagen. The overall texture of the skin is improved as it becomes thicker, tighter and firmer and other skin issues such as fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed away as well.
How long does it last?
The threads last 12 months but there is a secondary effect of collagen stimulation.
Is there any down time?
Most patients return to work the very next day. You may have some bruising, swelling and soreness after the procedure, typically for one week. Bruising is significantly reduced when buy refraining from taking OTC medications and supplements that can thin the blood. Over the counter medications such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), aspirin (in Excedrin), prescribed medications such blood-thinners (warfarin), and supplements such as St. John's Wort and Vitamin E can increase your chances of bruising. If possible it is advisable to refrain from taking these medications for two weeks prior to treatment. You should check with your medical provider before stopping any prescribed medication. It is important to sleep on your back with your head propped up on pillows for the first three nights.
In addition to tenderness, there can be a type of discomfort described as "twinges", or "zingers" or "quick shocks". This is caused by the threads stimulating a nerve ending. It is expected for a few weeks after treatment and gradually resolves.
