Parfaire’s PDO Thread Lift

What is s PDO Thread Lift?

Parfaire’s PDO Thread lift is a revolutionary technique making use of PDO collagen-stimulating threads to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin.

PDO (polydioxanone) is a special dissolvable protein fiber that has been used for many years in heart surgeries, wound repairs and numerous surgical procedures around the world. It gained FDA approval in 2011 for indication of collagen regeneration. It is safe to the human body and no allergy test is needed. Once the thread is placed, it continuously stimulates collagen synthesis, then naturally dissolves over four to six months to water and CO2, leaving only newly-generated collagen in place.

How does PDO thread lift work?

Innovative new PDO threads come in different shapes and designs: Cog/barb thread is designed for a lifting and anchoring of sagging skin and folds; Smooth/Mono thread is for laying down a mesh at the area needing collagen for scar revision, tightening and texture improvement. Other types are designed for subtle reshaping, enhancement without adding too much volume, such as nose, lip definition, smoker line correction.

Who is an ideal candidate for a PDO Thread Lift?

It is a procedure ideal for patients between age 30 to 65 with mild to moderate skin elasticity, and for patients who want to avoid a surgical facelift, but rather actively stimulates their own collagen and elastin production to achieve a more natural and gradual result that “ages with you”.

PDO Thread Lift can be used as an adjunct to other non-surgical skin tightening lifting treatments and injectables to provide even longer-lasting results.

What should I expect with a PDO Thread Lift procedure?

Before the procedure, our Board Certified Physician will carefully assess your desired treatment area(s), marking the vectors and direction of placement that will give you optimal results. This procedure is well tolerated by most patients with only local anesthesia injection to the thread inserting point. To minimize the risk of bruising or swelling, thread placements are done by using a fine blunt cannula. The procedure takes between 30 minutes to one hour depending on the area(s) to be treated.

How soon should I see results?

You will see an immediate improvement in the treated area. The collagen generating process continues with the maximal result around three to four months.

How long do the results last?

Studies have shown that results can last 18 to 24 months, however this depends on the number of threads used and condition of your skin and area(s) treated. Like most aesthetic anti-aging treatments, PDO Thread Lift requires follow up with repeat procedure and touch up.
