PDO Threadlifting | Montgomery
PDO (Polydioxonone) threads are an effective cosmetic technique that have been very popular recently. The procedure lifts and tightens sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production. This lifting method involves the implantation of multiple, fine polydioxanone (PDO) threads, into the subcutaneous layer of the skin which creates a vectorial network that acts as support for the tissue. PDO threads have been widely used in the medical field for over a decade and are a very safe treatment.
Once implanted into the skin, the threads produce an immediate, visible lifting effect while also supporting natural collagen production. After the short (30-90 minute) procedure, your skin will feel rejuvenated, bringing vitality, elasticity and a brighter complexion. The lifting effect is at its peak after six months via biological (enzymatic) absorption or hydrolysis, from there the threads will be absorbed into the body leaving new collagen in their place.
What is PDO (POLYDIOXANONE)?
PDO is a re-absorbable sterile thread, obtained through the polymerization of p-dioxanone. PDO is safe to use and does not produce allergic reactions, skin rejections, or any side effects. PDO produces fibrosis in the surrounding area, giving rise to the creation of type I and II collagen.
What is a PDO thread treatment?
At Alabama Surgical Arts, the treatments are designed to treat individual patients with individual concerns. The threads are placed in or just under the skin and stimulate the production of your own collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. They also stimulate the development of new blood vessels and improve lymphatic drainage giving a better skin quality with a smoother brighter appearance. The results start immediately and will continue to improve for 6-8 months. The collagen produced will provide tension and firmness which will help tighten and lift the skin tissue. Elastin will give the skin elasticity associated with youthful skin and hyaluronic acid binds water giving an enhanced hydration. This combination of effects gives an amazing rejuvenation to aging skin and helps to reverse and slow the ageing process in skin.
Are you a good candidate for PDO thread treatment?
The ideal candidate for PDO thread lift treatments are patients who have mildly loose skin in the facial area. This means there should not be over an inch of excess skin after lifting the area. Patients for PDO thread lift should have great elasticity of their skin. Thin skin will reveal irregularities underneath the skin. This is a great treatment for those who have mild laxity and good elasticity of the skin!
An excellent treatment option to combat facial aging, skin stress and other related concerns along with other treatments. PDO threads are usually used in conjunction with neurotoxins and dermal fillers to rejuvenate the entire face. One of the best benefits offered by PDO threads are brow lifts. PDO threads are great at addressing lower face concerns such as mild jowls.
PDO threads form part of an integrated support structure for the tissue of the face and body due to collagen synthesis which biologically rejuvenates the quality of the skin and slows down the aging process. Dr. Nizam and Physician Assistant Lily will explain the procedure and discuss the treatment plan. Schedule a consultation today at Alabama Surgical Arts to see how this can benefit you!

Patient Review by Suzanne M
Lily is the best ! I was very hesitant about having anything done because I was a first-timer for any cosmetic procedure. She put me at ease right away by talking to me about my concerns and answered all my questions. She has the expertise as well as an artist's eye ! She did a threadlift on me recently and before that she did tear trough filler. I was very happy with the results! The thread lift results were amazing yet very subtle and natural. Although she's no longer in Arkansas , I would travel to Alabama to see her in a heartbeat!
