Dr. Edwards at Natural Radiance Med Spa has many years of experience completing PDO thread lift procedures.  Learn More.

Are PDO threads right for me?

To find out if you are a candidate for PDO threads at Natural Radiance Med Spa, Dr. Edwards reviews your medical history and discusses your desired results. He examines your face in areas you are concerned about, lets you know what to expect, and tailors a treatment plan that is best for your needs. Learn more.

What should I expect during PDO thread lift procedures?

Before a PDO thread lift procedure, avoid alcohol, tobacco, and certain medicines or supplements for at least five days prior to your scheduled appointment. 

To ensure you avoid discomfort, Dr. Edwards numbs the treatment area. He also disinfects your skin. While you relax in a comfortable, reclining chair, Dr. Edwards makes tiny incisions and inserts PDO threads underneath your skin. He then anchors the threads in place. You go home the same day as the procedure.  Learn more.

What happens after my treatment?

After PDO threading, downtime is minimal. You can expect some bruising and swelling for a day or two, but can resume many daily activities immediately. 

PDO Threads

Avoid rubbing your face for a week after treatment and do not smoke, purse your lips, drink through a straw, sleep on your side, go to saunas, or do intense exercise until Dr. Edwards gives you the okay.

You notice immediate results after receiving PDO threads. Over time, as cells regenerate and swelling subsides, you can expect even better results. The threads eventually dissolve. Repeat treatments, along with other aesthetic treatments if needed, help you maintain superior anti-aging results for a lifetime.  Learn more.

Which integrative services help to improve my dermal filler outcomes?

Natural Radiance is dedicated to having you Look Natural and Feel Radiant!  As with any recovery process, no matter how gentle or gradual, it is important that the body is ready to respond.  The professionals at Natural Radiance may suggest other services that will work with RHA filler treatments in helping you achieve your desired result.  Holistic nutrition and IV therapies may speed your healing and accelerate the HA integration.  Certain peptides may accelerate your ability to lay down collagen and boost your immune system and reduce your risk of infection. The proper application of PDO threads may help lift areas where Sculptra is applied.  So what is the purpose of having a beautifully contoured face without having a beautiful skin over it?  Aesthetic services such as chemical peels, microneedling, and neurotoxins will make your whole face light up! If your Sculptra focus is on your buttocks, you may want to consider supplementing with either removing fat in the "wrong" places with liposuction, or increasing volume in all the "right" places with fat transfer techniques. These are just some examples of how an integrated approach will exceed your expectations!
