Reduce the effects of age and gravity on your face and neck

As you get older, the effects of gravity may leave you with an aged, tired appearance. This is because gravity may weaken your facial structures and cause you to lose facial fat. The good news is there is a solution. Here at the L.A.B. med spa, we offer PDO threads to lift and contour sagging tissues on your face, neck and body without surgery. To perform this treatment, our expert technicians use PDO Threads.

Perfect skin

How do PDO Threads work?

After we inject a local anesthetic into your treatment areas, we’ll use special cannulas to insert threads, which are made of biodegradable polydioxanone (PDO). These sutures will be gradually absorbed by your body, stimulate the production of collagen, and lift your tissues. In about 3 – 6 months, once the collagen has naturally formed around the thread, you’ll enjoy complete results.

Am I a good candidate for PDO Threads?

You may be a good candidate for PDO Threads if you: 

  • Wish to improve the skin texture on your face and neck.
  • Hope to resolve facial drooping and tighten loose skin.
  • Want do delay an aged appearance.

How long does treatment take?

Thread lift treatments usually take anywhere between 45 and 60 minutes to complete.

What results will I see?

Once you receive a PDO Threads treatment, you’ll notice an improvement of lax skin on your face and neck. The maximum effect, however, will occur in 4 to 6 weeks. You’ll enjoy stronger facial muscles and greater definition of the cheeks & jawline. PDO Threads allows for a natural, subtle restoration of youth. 

Keep in mind that bruising and swelling is normal and can be treated before the procedure with oral Arnica. Tissue asymmetry and irregularity is also common and will resolve on its own in about 2 weeks. 

After treatment, we recommend you avoid excessive face animation for 2 weeks, massage and manipulation of facial tissues for 2 weeks, and microneedling for 2 weeks. In addition, refrain from strenuous exercise for 72 hours and dental procedures for 2 to 4 weeks.

Is there any downtime?

You may experience swelling and bruising for a few days but can still return to work and your daily responsibilities right away.
