The effects of PDO threads on your skin are quite long-lasting. The thread itself will last for 4-6 months before being absorbed by the natural hydrolysis process. The tightening effect may remain for up to 18 months.
Refrain from putting pressure on your face by sleeping on your side or even on your stomach. This should be avoided for roughly a week following your thread lift surgery. To reduce swelling after a thread lift, sleep on your back with your head propped up on a pillow.
There may be some slight discomfort, tugging and pulling sensations during a PDO thread-lifting procedure. As with any non-surgical treatment that requires the use of needles to inject substances into the deeper layers of the skin, the use of highly effective local anaesthetics reduce discomfort to a minimum.
