PDO Threading in Austin, TX

At Door to Door MedSpa, Dr. Claudia Legere offers PDO threading to the residents of Austin, Texas and the surrounding communities who desire a rejuvenated look.

What is PDO Threading?

PDO (Polydioxanone) threading is a procedure designed to lift the skin, most commonly on the face. This treatment uses thin acupuncture needles to place dissolving threads underneath the surface of the skin. These threads help to keep the skin lifted and tight as they dissolve over the months following treatment. As an added benefit, the Polydioxanone material that composes the treads also assists in boosting collagen production, which means you can expect continued results as the threads dissolve.

Who is the Ideal Candidate for PDO Threading?

PDO threading is a safe treatment that has been used extensively over recent years without any issues. The PDO threading substance is commonly used in surgical procedures due to its safe and absorbent qualities. It is also non-allergenic and has no significant side effects. If you are an adult looking to tighten and lift the skin on your face, you may be a good candidate for PDO threading.

What are the Benefits of PDO Threading?

In addition to being a non-surgical option for lifting the skin, PDO threading offers the following benefits:

  • Reduction in wrinkles and lines
  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Long-lasting results

What to Expect from PDO Threading

PDO threading lasts approximately 30 minutes and is relatively pain-free. However, a topical anesthetic can be applied if desired. Some patients may experience bruising or swelling, but this generally resides after a couple of days. There is no downtime required after PDO threading.

In some cases we can combine the PDO threading procedure with another cosmetic procedure to enhance results. Botox® was recently approved by the FDA for use in treating forehead wrinkles. Utilizing Botox® for forehead wrinkles can enhance the results of PDO threading. During your consultation we can discuss the possibility of combining Botox® or other cosmetic procedures with your PDO threading treatment.

Recovery from PDO Threading

After a PDO threading treatment, you can expect to be fully recovered within a few days, with most patients being able to return to work and other activities the same day as treatment. You can expect results immediately and will notice the complete results within approximately three months. However, results will continue to show for about six months due to the increased collagen production.

How Much Does PDO Threading Cost in Austin, TX?

The price of a PDO threading treatment will depend on the amount of threads inserted. Dr. Legere will determine the treatment you need to achieve the look you desire, and will then give you a price on the total package. Door to Door MedSpa accepts cash, checks, and credit cards from its valued patients.
