This treatment is safe, and the side effects are, in fact rare which is what makes PDO threads so innovative. MEDiTHREAD PDO threads are inserted with needles and are absorbed in 4-6 months. MEDiTHREAD’s PDO threads have minimized if not eliminated any of the side effects associated with older thread lifting procedures, such as infection and thread breakage.

Expect some mild bruising, swelling, and soreness for 2 to 6 days after the procedure, and a mild sensation of tightness of up to 2 weeks. Temporary mild dimpling of the skin can also occur and resolves in a few days. Although side effects are extremely rare and in more serious cases removal of threads may be required in cases such as migration and extrusion. The face has a very complex anatomical structure intimate anatomical knowledge is required to perform a PDO thread lift well to avoid serious side effects such as infection. We advise practitioners to get well trained in PDO thread lift.
