PDO Threads

PDO threads, short for Polydioxanone threads, are a revolutionary non-surgical cosmetic treatment available at Belladerm MedSpa in Maple Grove, MN. PDO Threads are made from a biocompatible material called polydioxanone, which has been safely used in surgery for decades. PDO threads are designed to lift and tighten sagging skin, providing a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance without the need for invasive surgery.

The procedure involves inserting these absorbable threads into the skin using a fine needle or cannula. Once inserted, the threads stimulate the body's natural collagen production, which helps to improve skin texture, elasticity, and firmness over time. Additionally, the threads create a supportive structure that lifts and tightens the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging.

PDO threads can be used to target various areas of the face and body, including the cheeks, jawline, and neck. There are different types of PDO threads available, including smooth threads for improving skin texture and barbed threads for lifting and repositioning tissue.

What are the benefits of PDO Threads?

One key benefit of PDO Threads is their minimally invasive nature, with little to no downtime compared to traditional surgical procedures. Patients typically experience mild bruising, swelling, and discomfort following the treatment, but these side effects generally subside within a few days to a week.


What timeline can I expect for my results?

Results from PDO Thread treatments can be seen immediately, with continued improvement over the following weeks as collagen production increases. Depending on the individual's skin condition, age, and lifestyle factors, the effects of PDO threads typically last for several months to a year.

Is the PDO Thread procedure painful?

Discomfort during the procedure is minimal and can be managed with topical anesthetic or local anesthesia. Some patients may experience mild bruising, swelling, or discomfort following the treatment, but these side effects typically subside within a few days to a week.

What is the downtime after PDO Thread treatment?

There is minimal downtime associated with PDO thread treatments. Patients may experience mild bruising, swelling, or discomfort, but they can typically resume normal activities within a few days.

Are PDO Threads safe?

PDO threads are considered safe when performed by a qualified and experienced healthcare professional. As with any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects, which will be discussed during the consultation.

Who is a good candidate for PDOThread treatment?

Individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity who want to improve the appearance of sagging skin without undergoing surgery are good candidates for PDO thread treatment.

How many PDO Thread sessions are recommended?

The number of sessions needed depends on individual goals and the condition of the skin. During the consultation, a personalized treatment plan will be discussed.

Are there any contraindications for PDO Thread treatment?
