How Do PDO EuroThreads Work?

PDO EuroThreads are biodegradable sutures made from polydioxanone, which is the same material that has been used in surgeries for decades. When these tiny threads are inserted into the skin, they trigger cells called fibroblasts to produce more collagen, which is an important protein for the health and complexion of the skin. Gradually, the increased collagen production tightens, lifts, and rejuvenates the skin to create a more youthful appearance.

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?

If you think PDO EuroThreads may be right for you, the process will begin with a consultation with one of our medical providers. During this meeting, you’ll be asked about your specific cosmetic goals and your facial skin will be examined to determine if you’re a good fit for the treatment. If you and your provider decide to move forward with the procedure, they’ll work with you to create a custom-tailored treatment plan.

PDO EuroThreads treatment is administered as an outpatient procedure and typically takes one to two hours to complete. To begin, you’ll be given a local anesthetic in the treatment area to prevent any discomfort. Next, your treatment specialist will carefully begin inserting the EuroThreads using a very fine needle. The specific number of threads used will depend on your treatment plan and desired results. Once the treatment is finished, you’ll be able to return home almost immediately.

I have been a client at Saving Face for a little over a year and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else. Victoria is wonderful! I am always pleased with my results and have recommended Saving Face to my best friends and sister in law. Now they are just as obsessed! I can't wait to try their laser treatments.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

One of the reasons many people are turning to PDO EuroThreads is that they don’t require the long recovery downtime that would be needed after a facelift. After being treated with PDO EuroThreads, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, and tenderness around the treatment area, but these symptoms should resolve in under a week. Most patients can return to work and normal activities after one or two days, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least a week.

How Long Will It Take To See Results After PDO EuroThreads?

Most patients start to notice immediate improvements to their facial skin after being treated with PDO EuroThreads. However, the results should continue to become more visible over the next two or three months. The effects of PDO EuroThreads have been known to last approximately one to three years depending on your age and how well you care for your skin.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Some patients have experienced minor side effects from PDO EuroThreads. The most common side effects include:

  • Soreness
  • Bruising
  • Infection
  • Hematoma
  • Inflammation
  • Skin dimpling
  • Hair loss
  • Visible sutures
