Smooth Threads

Smooth Threads Potomac DC

Smooth threads are surgical quality polydioxanone (PDO) threads placed under your skin in a hashtag pattern to help bring blood flow to the area to repair and tighten skin. Smooth threads help stimulate your body to produce more elastin and collagen, and can be used on the face, neck, chest, and other areas where you want to smooth skin and make it look younger.

What To Expect During Treatment
When we treat patients using smooth threads, we begin with a discussion of your appearance goals and an evaluation of what treatments would work best to fulfill them. Then we create a custom treatment plan for you. 

During the treatment, you will be given a local anesthetic. The PDO threads will then be precisely inserted under the skin, in a weave pattern. The procedure takes about 45 minutes. After a brief recovery period, you can drive yourself home.

After the treatment, you’ll be given a care plan to help maximize results during the healing process. There may be some initial redness and soreness, but it will dissipate quickly. You can continue with most normal activities after your treatment is complete.

What Are The Results Of Treatment?
Since the treatment relies on the production of collagen and elastin, it takes some time for results to become apparent, but you’ll notice improvements in a few weeks. Depending on the area treated, you may want to schedule follow up treatments to enhance the results. This can be worked out as part of your treatment plan.
