PDO (polydioxanone) threads are a non-invasive cosmetic treatment used to correct sagging skin and address wrinkles of the face and neck primarily. With recent changes in the aesthetic world for non-surgical anti-aging options, PDO threads have become more popular. Dr. Aguirre has undergone training to set herself apart as the only provider in Baldwin and Mobile counties to offer this elite service to her patients.
PDO threads are dissolvable sutures that are used to lift and shape the areas they are placed in. This is accomplished through collagen stimulation. Traditionally, they were used only in the face and neck. Now, they are used in other body areas such as the arms, breasts and nose.
The ideal candidate for this procedure are patients with sagging jowls and loss of fat pads in the face. This can start to happen as early as your mid-late 30s in some people. If you are looking for a natural, non-surgical face lift with no downtime this is the procedure for you!
After the initial placement, you may need a touch up done after 9 months. It is recommended to after one year a touch up should be done regardless to maintain the results. Results may vary though and some have reported results lasting up to 18 months before a repeat treatment was needed.
