PDO Thread Lift
East Islip & Huntington

What is a PDO thread lift? Please explain the process?
The PDO thread lift consists of introducing multiple very gentle threads in an area with two actions in mind: a nice initial gentle lift and a secondary lift a few months later when the threads are replaced by collagen strands. VITRA Aesthetics Clinic offers the latest in thread lift technology and techniques.
What can a PDO threadlift achieve for patients?
PDO floating threads can lift and tighten the skin.
What patients are suitable and will benefit from this procedure?
Anyone. It can be done as a treatment for a suitably volumized patient who needs a lift, or as a preventive procedure so that the face does not sag for about 2 years or so.
How long does the procedure take?
This will depend on the number of threads.
Typically a full face of threads requires about 30-45 min
Is the procedure painful?
Pain is minimal and it can become virtually pain free if a topical anaesthetic cream is applied 1 hour before the procedure
What areas of the face neck and body are these threads suitable for?
Brow lift (gentle)
Mid face lift
Lower face and jawline lift
What are the risks associated with this procedure?
Bruising and swelling are the most common
What is the downtime associated with this procedure?
Swelling for 48 hours
Bruising if it occurs, not in everyone- 7 days
What is the price of the thread lift procedure?
Upper or lower face approximately: $2000
Per Thread: $200-$250.
How long will the procedure last? Or a much better question is "when will patients want their next thread lift after their first thread lift"?
It lasts for 12-24 months.
Because the PDO’s are versatile, in a small number, say 10-20 they can be topped up anytime.
