The PDO Threads Process
What to Expect
When you visit PureMD for PDO threads in Beavercreek, your trained specialist will first consult with you to make sure you are an ideal candidate for PDO threads. We will also discuss your goals in order to provide recommendations for which technique will best meet your needs. Once we complete your consultation, you will know which product(s) we will use and the cost.
PDO Thread Insertion
Your PureMD specialist will numb the treatment area(s) and ensure you are comfortable before beginning the procedure process. For accuracy, they will then mark where the injections will go according to your treatment plan. Using a sharp needle or cannula, your PureMD specialist will insert the PDO threads under the deep surface skin.
There may be some bruising or swelling immediately following your PDO thread insertion. We will provide detailed aftercare instructions, and you can ask us any questions you may have about caring for your PDO threads.
Before Receiving PDO threads:
- Do not use alcohol and tobacco use for at least 5 days before your treatment
- Avoid other ingredients that increase your risk of bleeding or bruising, like: Advil or ibuprofen, omega-3 fatty acids, aspirin, and other supplements.

After Receiving PDO Threads
- No touching or massaging the injection site post-treatment to avoid moving the threads.
- Avoid direct sun exposure and use sunscreen when outside.
- Sleep slightly elevated if you experience swelling and face up.
