Skin Tightening Q & A

What is skin tightening?

Skin tightening is an aesthetics procedure your provides uses to improve the appearance of:

  • Loose skin
  • Sagging skin
  • Loss of facial volume
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Undesirable skin texture
Instead of invasive cutting associated with surgical face-lifts, the experienced medical team at MD Esthetics uses Medithread PDO (polydioxanone) threads to nonsurgically tighten and lift your skin.

Thread lifts are minimally invasive. Your provider introduces needles with threads attached deep into skin layers for instant lifting and collagen stimulation.

What are PDO threads used for?

Medithread PDO threads for skin tightening treat the following areas of your body that may have loose or sagging skin:

  • Face
  • Lips
  • Abdomen
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Buttocks
PDO threads are commonly used for aging skin on the face, but tighten skin in just about any area of the body you’re uncomfortable with. Your provider lets you know if you’re a good candidate for the procedure.

What should I expect during skin tightening?

After a thorough consultation and skin exam with a provider at MD Esthetics, you’ll find out if a nonsurgical PDO face-lift is right for you. If so, your doctor numbs the affected area and strategically places PDO threads (attached to thin needles) within skin layers, where they remain long-term to maintain tighter skin.

The threads create micro-tears in the skin to increase blood flow and collagen production. They eventually biodegrade over a period of about six months and absorb into your skin without leaving scar tissue.

What happens after the procedure?

You’ll experience minimal downtime after a PDO thread lift. After the procedure, you might experience:

  • Slight bruising
  • Swelling
  • Itching sensations
  • Mild discomfort
Your provider may recommend over-the-counter pain relievers or topical creams to reduce discomfort while your skin heals.

Avoid strenuous activity and extreme facial movements until your doctor says it’s okay. You’ll notice results from treatment within three weeks and tighter skin should last about a year or longer. You’ll reap the benefits of natural, younger-looking skin.

When you’re ready to try skin tightening without pain, surgery, or downtime, schedule a consultation with the providers at MD Esthetics or book an appointment online today.
