When a patient arrives for their appointment, we will apply a topical anesthetic, disinfect the skin, and inject lidocaine into the treatment area.
Once the target skin is sufficiently numb, we will inject the PDO threads, thus anchoring them to the inner facial tissue and prompting the beginning of the body’s natural rejuvenation process. Depending on the desired treatment type and location, various sizes and types of thread will be used, albeit any excess thread will be trimmed off.
The treatment takes up to 30 to 45 minutes on average.
Once the treatment is complete, patients can expect to feel tenderness, mild pain, and experience swelling and/or bruising in the days following. These side effects typically subside within one to two weeks and can be easily treated with over-the-counter pain medications.
