A PDO thread lift using MasterThreads is a safe and minimally invasive procedure using up to four types of threads: “barbs”, “hooks”, “monos”, and “screws”. Barbs and hooks are used to lift the skin, while monos and screws are used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, including under the eye and the nasolabial folds. These threads can also be used to plump lips and reshape the nose. Longer barbs can be used for sagging skin found around the stomach, arms, legs and buttocks.
Facial treatments typically take between 30 minutes to an hour, and simple individual areas can take between 5 to 15 minutes. Minimal pain is usually reported from the procedure, and a local anesthetic can be used to help avoid discomfort. Lifting is instantly observable, although optimal results are usually seen 2-3 weeks after the treatment. Threads will dissolve within 3-6 months, depending on the type of threads used, but neocollagenesis can continue for up to 18 months after the procedure.
PDO thread lifting procedures should always be undertaken by a qualified medical professional. When performed correctly, typical, minimal side effects may include redness, mild swelling, bruising and soreness for the first few days after the procedure, although for many, there is little to no downtime reported. In some cases, additional side effects have been reported, but these cases are considered to be rare.
Yes. PDO thread lifting is routinely used in conjunction with other skin rejuvenation procedures—including fillers, injections and resurfacing techniques—as part of patients’ physician directed anti-aging protocol. The threading procedure typically involves a brief recovery period and is used by many dermatological surgeons and other anti-aging specialists in conjunction with other minimally-invasive therapies such as Botox® and Dysport®.
PDO Threads by MasterThreads are used by some of the top dermatological surgeons in the world for face and other midface lifts.
We know that there are many sources of PDO threads available in the market. At MasterThreads, we are confident that we offer the highest quality threads available in the world. As a result, we stand behind every single thread we sell. You may save (a small amount of) money buying generic thread products from other sources, but by doing so you risk receiving inferior, non-FDA approved threads that are susceptible to complications and breakage during implementation, and a greater potential of infection and degrade once placed. There’s a reason that we are the #1 aesthetic supplier of PDO threads in North America… because those are risks that we and our clients are not willing to take.
PDO threads by MasterThreads have a superior tensile strength to our competitors and provide a stronger lift, while using fewer threads… many of our clients who have bought other brands’ threads have found that they merely “saved a penny to spend a dollar” as a result. In addition to unmatched quality, we offer a larger selection of thread types, sizes and strengths than you will find from other sources, including our latest generation of “barb” threads, that contain more hooks per thread than similar products on the market. MasterThreads are easy to insert (using our simple 1-2-3 technique), and hold up from the time they are placed until they safely, naturally dissolve. Unlike most PDO suppliers, we fully stand behind our threads—offering you multiple easy-to-contact support options, hands on educational workshops and advanced one-on-one training programs, and a 100% money-back guarantee in the event that for any reason you are not completely satisfied with our products.
