How Does Platelet-Rich Plasma Work With PDO Threads?

Sagging and dull-looking skin are some of the most common conditions addressed when patients undergo platelet-rich plasma and PDO thread lifts. To maximize their effects, these procedures can actually be used together.

PDO threads come in a variety of kinds and gauges each with different purposes. PDO mono threads are smooth threads that can be used for skin rejuvenation. PDO cog and screw are barbed threads that are used for more moderate skin lifts, as well as skin rejuvenation. The introduction of these threads to the skin stimulates collagen production, which is known to have anti-aging effects. The strands are absorbable and self-dissolving.

Meanwhile, platelet-rich plasma is prepared by putting a sample of the patient's blood in a centrifuge to separate the platelets. Platelets are a particular form of blood cell fragment that serves as natural growth stimulants. These are responsible for promoting regeneration through collagen production. This is created into a serum that is injected into the skin. Aside from facial skin, this can also be used to stimulate hair follicle growth and regeneration.

Procedure for PRP Treatment with PDO Threads

Your doctor will thoroughly clean the skin using antiseptic solutions. Typically, a topical anesthetic is applied to help you cope with any minor discomfort. The doctor will then draw 10ml of blood needed for the PRP preparation process. The blood is processed in a centrifuge and the serum is created.

Depending on your desired skin lift improvements, they will draw out areas of the skin where the PDO threads will be inserted. Symmetry and balance between the two sides of the face are thoroughly measured. The PDO threads insert into your skin with a cannula needle through the subdermal skin tissues.

The prepared PRP serum is then injected along with the threads. The needles are pulled out and the doctor will twist and adjust the threads to create the desired lifting effect. The threads are trimmed and antiseptic cream is applied to the exit points to promote healing.

You'll observe the skin rejuvenating effects gradually over the next 6 weeks as the results of the PDO fine threads with PRP injections. Wrinkles, sagging skin, and other folds seem and feel plumper and smoother.

Side Effects of PRP and PDO Threads Together

As with any medical treatment, side effects may occur after the procedure. Because PDO thread lifts and Platelet Rich Plasma are considered minimally invasive, it’s rare for serious side effects to occur among patients. Some of the common side effects are redness, swelling, and bruising.

Redness and Swelling

Patients with sensitive skin may experience redness and swelling due to skin irritation. This should subside in 24 to 48 hours. The application of ice and moisturizer can help alleviate the irritation.


Patients experiencing bruising on the skin should refrain from exerting pressure on the surface of the skin. Bruising typically goes away on its own after a few days, but may last up to a few weeks in some cases.

When To Seek Medical Attention

It’s important to seek medical attention right away when redness, swelling, and bruising last for more than a couple of weeks. This may indicate that the body is adversely reacting to the treatment and is not healing properly.

Drooping skin after the procedure is also a sign that the procedure may have complications. Aside from these, symptoms such as nausea, headache, and dizziness may be a signal to call your healthcare provider. When in doubt, always seek medical advice from trusted professionals.
