PDO Threading

For those of our patients who live with loose, sagging skin Innova Wellness Spa offers innovative PDO threading procedures. PDO stands for polydioxanone, which is injected into the hypodermis of the skin, which lifts and tightens the skin.

Polydioxanone (PDO) Thread Lift

What is PDO Threading?

PDO threading and PDO therapy are considered cosmetic skincare techniques which inspire the body’s natural collagen production process, relieving sagging, loose skin.

These polydioxanone threads are implanted into the subcutaneous skin layer using tiny needles. These very threads remain in the skin, causing micro-abrasions that inspire collagen synthesis and tissue contraction, which enhances skin elasticity.

PDO threads are naturally absorbed by the body, leaving behind new collagen in their wake.

PDO Threading Treatment Areas

Innova Wellness Spa utilizes PDO threading treatments effectively to address the following areas of the body:

Eye area (including top and bottom eyelids)
Nasolabial folds
Abdominal area

Do you have marionette lines, double chin, or crow’s feet? We can help. Results look their best 6 months after treatment and can last years. We can drastically improve the appearance of your sagging and loose skin without resorting to painful, risky surgeries that often come with sizeable down time attached.

PDO Threading Treatment Time

PDO therapy takes anywhere between 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the treatment area. Side effects are generally miniscule, but can include minor bruising or swelling, which should subside within 2-3 days after treatment.

Patients are able to commence their everyday activities and responsibilities immediately after treatment. You can go back to work that very same day. Get our PDO threading treatment done during your lunch hour!

What is the recovery like?

Because the area is treated with an anesthetic, PDO Thread lifts can be surprisingly comfortable, with clients reporting little to no discomfort.

As with any cosmetic procedure, there may be some temporary swelling, bruising, or redness for just a few days afterwards. Results can be expected to develop within 4-6 weeks. Results can last anywhere from one to three years.

Dr. Phillips is a sculpture! I met with him for a consultation for Y-Lift. He analyzed my face carefully and discussed what I should expect during and after the procedure. I was fearful of the pain factor but it was pain free thanks to his expertise. I cannot believe the transformation in my face. My jowels are no longer. As a Canadian resident I was very surprised the procedure would be conducted by a Dr. Unless you are having plastic surgery you do not see a Dr. for cosmetic procedures. An incredible experience and I could not be happier with my results. Thanks Dr. Phillips.

Had a wonderful experience at the Winter Park location yesterday. The business is beautifully decorated, very clean, modern, and refreshing... everything you want in a spa. The staff was friendly and professional. I am looking forward to returning next month!

It was my first time ever receiving Botox and I came here to remove my forehead wrinkles. The results turned out amazing! Within 3 days, the wrinkles were completely gone. I was a little nervous, but Dr. Phillips Nagsuk made me feel extremely comfortable. Not only were the services, staff, and prices great, but the place it self was extremely clean. I will definitely be coming back here for any other fillers I desire in the future!
