What Is A PDO Thread Lift?

For those patients that do not want any type of surgery, a PDO thread lift is an easier alternative to a surgical facelift.

At Desert Medical Rejuvenation, we use top rated and FDA approved MINT™ PDO which stands for "Minimally Invasive Nonsurgical Threads" for their unique design and tensile strength to lift and tighten different areas of the face, neck or body areas for a more youthful and vibrant appearance and to fix sagging or lax skin. The threads are inserted under the skin where they then stimulate the production of collagen. Over time, the threads are absorbed naturally by the body, leaving a tighter and smoother appearance. Contact our expert team for a consultation to see if a jowls, eyebrows, nose, smile lines, face, neck, chest or body PDO thread lift is right for you.

How Does A PDO Thread Lift Work?

Dr. Quintanilla will assess your skin during your initial consultation at Desert Medical Rejuvenation to customize a treatment plan that meets your objectives.

For your comfort, application of a local numbing agent precedes the thread lift; a fine needle is then used to pull the threads from one part of your face to another, tugging on them to create a lifted look. The procedure takes anywhere from 20-30 minutes and is virtually pain free. The results are immediate !!

You will notice an immediate lift of the area, whether it's the face, the neck, the nose, the brow, the jowls or any other body area; that lift is followed by collagen formation for the next 12 - 18 months, which is the usual duration of results.  

You may experience minor soreness and swelling after your session, but this usually goes away within a few days. Your rejuvenated appearance will improve over the next 3-6 months as your skin's collagen develops, and after 12 – 18 months, the threads will dissolve into your skin.

Although the procedure is generally comfortable, for those patients with very high levels of anxiety or low levels of tolerance to pain, we offer the use of PRO-NOX®, a device that delivers a mixture of inhaled Oxygen/Nitrous which numbs the patient's sensations for several minutes, enough to allow the doctor to complete the procedure. The patient recovers 100% at the end of the procedure. 

Dr. Art does magic! After my appointment with him I always look rejuvenated and youthful in a very natural way. His moto is less is more! No doctor has been as skillful as Dr. Art. I have been treated by him in the past 5 years and I fly all the way from the East Coast to get my treatment at Deser Medical Rejuvenation for I know Dr. Art does an outstanding job.

Hands down the best doctor I’ve ever used for my facial treatments. This man is an artist and a pro. He was able to correct some issues and every treatment he’s ever done on me has been great. The results are fantastic. I highly recommend this place. Everyone here is so nice and I always look great after.

Dr. Q is the best! I drive over an hour to see him & he’s the only dr I’ll let touch my face. He’s very conservative with his work, always leaves me looking natural but refreshed! He’s also very organized & keeps track of all I’ve had done so there’s never any confusion. Thank you Dr Q (& your lovely staff)
