Are you bothered by loose, sagging skin on your face and/or neck? You are not alone! As we age, key factors such as gravity, volume loss, and decreased collagen and elastin production contribute to the visible signs of aging that we see in our skin’s firmness and elasticity. When loose, sagging skin cannot be fixed with cover-up or contouring, it needs to be LIFTED. If you are looking to combat facial sagging and volume loss and restore your youth, but are not ready to go under the knife, you’ve come to the right place. Let us introduce you to our PDO Thread Lift, the best non-surgical face lift in Denver.

What is MINT PDO? MINT stands for Minimally Invasive Non-surgical Thread- a safe and effective dissolvable suture made from PDO or polydioxanone. PDO is a complex sugar used daily for decades as a raw suture material in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgery and wound closure. PDO is used widely across more than 14 countries and is cleared by the FDA for its safety and efficacy in suture material. At Broadway Skin Essentials, we are proud to offer a variety of PDO threads as a solution for instant skin lifting and tightening.

Made from absorbable suture material, our PDO threads are used to lift and tighten the skin. These threads are placed under the skin, causing micro-injury to the tissue and triggering the body’s healing response. This regenerative response process, also called neocollagenesis, is the process by which our bodies produce collagen to help heal the treatment site, leaving the area looking fuller and smoother. As the healing process continues over the next few months following treatment, your body will continue to lay a collagen network at the treatment site. Once the threads have dissolved, this new collagen network helps to keep the skin lifted and tight. Results can last up to a year or more. These unique and absorbable threads can have a smooth surface and are used to build a fuller look. Threads can also be barbed (think porcupine quills) and placed under the skin in some regions of the face, jawline, and neck to achieve your ideal lift. Lifting threads can also be used in other areas of the body, for example, the breast or abdomen.

Barbed or lifting PDO threads are designed to lift and then support with multi and bi-directional barbs placed strategically along the length of the thread. These barbs and an anchoring tip allow your injector to lift and fixate sagging tissue. This tissue repositioning along the barbs helps achieve maximum lift, allowing patients to enjoy results comparable to a facelift without having to undergo the preparation, downtime, and recovery associated with surgery.
Like their barbed counterparts, smooth PDO threads (also known as mono threads) maintain the collagen-stimulating properties that help repair our skin at the cellular level but lack the anchoring barbs. Collagen, in addition to elastin, is a vital protein that makes up the skin’s supporting structure and keeps it looking firm and youthful. While some patients require the significant support offered by barbed threads, smooth threads are an ideal option for patients looking for a lasting way to improve their skin below the surface. These volume-building threads can be used simultaneously with injectable fillers as well.
Here at Broadway Skin Essentials, a consult with one of our PDO Thread Specialists is the first step in determining who is a candidate for this procedure. Our expert injectors are educated and trained extensively on the many different PDO Thread options available in the aesthetic arena. They constantly incorporate new techniques to serve our patients best and deliver ideal results. After assessing your unique needs and treatment goals, your injector will guide you in choosing the appropriate PDO thread based on your desired outcome. They will then work closely with you to design an individualized treatment plan to achieve this result. Have questions?

FAQ

How long does the procedure take?
The treatment time depends on the size of the area being treated. The procedure can take anywhere from 30 minutes for a small area to 70 minutes for a larger area. These times account for numbing.

Is a PDO Thread Lift painful?
While this procedure is minimally invasive, the treatment creates micro-injury to the tissues, so a local anesthetic is administered to ensure patient comfort.
Is there any downtime? Recovery from a PDO Thread Lift is minimal. Patients may have some swelling and bruising for the first 24-48 hours following treatment, but you can immediately return to most daily activities. Your expert injector will discuss what to expect, aftercare, and activities to avoid during your preliminary consultation and again at the time of treatment.

Are their side effects associated with the procedure?
PDO Thread Lifts have a much lower risk of complications than facelift surgery. Minor complications can occur in a small percentage of patients but can typically be corrected. Patients may experience minor swelling or bruises, which should subside within a few days. Other unusual complications include visible sutures, pain, infection, snapping of sutures, accumulation of blood (hematoma), and dimpling of the skin.

When will I see the results, and how long do the results last?
While a PDO Thread Lift provides noticeable results immediately, many of the benefits are progressive, meaning they continue to improve over time. In the month following PDO Thread placement, your natural collagen production will increase in the treatment area, and you will continue to see improvement over the next eight weeks. The skin will look firmer, lifted, plump, and smooth within six months after treatment, with results lasting between 1 to 2 years.

How much does a PDO Thread Lift Cost?
PDO Thread Lifts start at $500.00 and depend entirely on the size of the treatment area and the type and number of PDO Threads used to achieve your ideal result. A thread lift is a customized procedure, and your injector will provide you with a price quote during consultation.
