What Makes a Good Thread Lift Candidate?

Are you wondering “Who is a good candidate for a thread lift?” Our Madison, WI-based Radiance Skin Therapy & Laser Center team offers PDO (polydioxanone) thread lifts, which are non-surgical cosmetic procedures that can lift and tighten sagging skin on the face.

The treatments involve inserting dissolvable threads under the skin, where they are then gently pulled and secured into place to create a lifted, more youthful appearance. In addition to providing support, the threads stimulate collagen production, leading to improved skin texture and tone over time. While PDO thread lifts are a safe and effective option for many people, not everyone is a good candidate for this procedure.

In this blog, we will explore who may be a good candidate for a PDO thread lift.

Individuals with Mild to Moderate Skin Sagging

A PDO thread lift is most effective for individuals with mild to moderate skin sagging. If you have significant skin laxity, a surgical facelift may be a better option. 

Those Looking for a Non-Surgical Option

A PDO thread lift is a great option for those looking for a non-surgical alternative to a traditional facelift. It is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed in less than an hour, and most people are able to return to their daily activities after the procedure.

People in Good Overall Health

It is important to be in good overall health before undergoing a PDO thread lift. Individuals with certain medical conditions—such as bleeding disorders or uncontrolled diabetes—may not be good candidates for the procedure.

Those with Realistic Expectations

While a PDO thread lift can create a significant improvement in the appearance of the face, it is important to have realistic expectations about the results. The procedure can provide a subtle lift and tightening of the skin, but it will not produce the same dramatic results as a surgical facelift.

Patients Who are Not Pregnant or Breastfeeding

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should wait until after you have given birth or finished nursing before undergoing a PDO thread lift. The procedure involves the use of local anesthesia and the insertion of dissolvable threads, which can be absorbed by the body over time.
