At InjectAbility Clinic in Torrance, CA, we understand that the natural aging process can seriously affect your self-confidence. That’s why we are proud to offer a number of safe, effective anti-aging treatments. While the right treatment for you will depend on several factors, including your health, concerns, and goals, today, we’d like to highlight PDO threads, one of the most versatile anti-aging treatments on the market.
How Long Do PDO Threads Last?
You can expect the results of your PDO thread lift to last for at least 18 months. How long your ideal results continue depends largely on how well you care for your skin once your treatment session is over. For example, if you do not drink an excessive amount of alcohol and you refrain from smoking, you can feel fairly confident that your PDO threads will keep your skin looking tight, healthy, and young for longer than 1.5 years.
You can also ensure that your PDO thread lift results last for as long as possible by eating nutritiously and making sure you stay hydrated. Furthermore, protecting your skin from sun damage and moisturizing your skin daily will help you feel confident in your appearance for a very long time. Moreover, you can extend the longevity of your results by protecting your skin from sun damage.
What Can I Expect Once My Treatment Session Is Complete?
Once your PDO thread lift is complete, you can get back to most of your usual routine. However, you should keep in mind that you will not be able to engage in any strenuous physical activity for roughly one week. Also, there are other restrictions you must adhere to during your recovery period. For example, it is imperative that you do not apply too much pressure to your face once your treatment is complete.
Therefore, you will need to sleep on your back while your skin is healing. Note, this assumes that this treatment was used to treat your face, neck, chest, or stomach. If you get your buttocks treated, you will need to sleep on your stomach. Another important restriction you must adhere to is to keep cool. You must avoid sweating after your treatment, so make sure that you don’t sit in a sauna or hot tub.
Can I Go Back to Work After My Treatment Session?
We recommend planning to take a day or two off from work once your PDO thread lift is complete. If you don’t want to spend any PTO, schedule your appointment for a late Friday afternoon, so you can recover over the weekend.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
You need to meet with a skin expert to verify that PDO threads will be safe and effective for you. However, there is a very good chance that you will qualify if you are a relatively healthy adult and have concerns about the signs of the natural aging process. One great thing about this treatment is that it is incredibly versatile. You may be considered a good fit for this treatment if you are worried about aging signs virtually anywhere, including your:
- Marionette lines
- Crow’s feet
- Upper arms
Note, regardless of how healthy you are, you will be considered a poor fit for this treatment if you are suffering from skin irritation at the time of your appointment. Therefore, it is imperative that you avoid any cosmetic treatments that may irritate your skin in the weeks leading up to your treatment. Also, you must take steps to ensure that you do not have sunburn, active acne, or a rosacea outbreak at the time of your PDO thread lift.
What Other Preparation Steps Will I Need to Take?
It is also essential that you do not take any pharmaceutical that will or may thin your blood in the days leading up to your treatment session. For example, you may not take any type of NSAIDs. You also will not be able to take Coumadin, vitamin E supplements, or fish oil supplements. During your initial consultation, we will discuss all of the drugs and supplements you take or have taken recently and advise you on what to avoid for seven days.
Moreover, you need to make sure that your blood pressure falls within a normal range at the time of your appointment. Therefore, you must refrain from consuming alcohol or nicotine in the 24 hours leading up to your treatment session. You should also regulate your caffeine consumption in advance of your treatment to ensure that your blood pressure is not too high at the time of your appointment.
