Avoid alcohol and smoking 24 hours before treatment.
Avoid Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Advil, St. John’s Wort, oral Vitamin E, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) in the 24 hours prior to your treatment as they may promote the risk of bruising and bleeding in the injection area.

The Renew Wellness Center team will schedule your treatment following the consultation. The PDO thread lift procedure typically takes less than 45 minutes and is done in a private procedure room. First, the patient’s face is numbed with an anesthetic to reduce any pain or discomfort during the treatment. Dr. Desai or Dr. Patel will then mark the treatment areas on the face before placing Nova PDO threads under the skin with a fine needle. Once inserted into the skin, the threads act as anchors so the skin can be slightly lifted. Once the treatment is complete, the patient may continue their daily routine without any downtime. Some patients say the PDO thread lift process feels similar to getting dermal fillers.
Most patients will see results immediately after a PDO thread lift. Typically, patients will feel tightness in the face with swelling around the areas treated. These mild symptoms will fade after a few days, depending on the type of treatment given. Most PDO thread lifts take about 8 weeks to see the final result and the results may vary depending on the patient's age. Dr. Desai and Dr. Patel will help you determine if you will need additional treatments in the future. Taking good care of your skin will help the thread lift results last as long as possible.
Ice the treated area for a few minutes four to five times during the day for the first week if you are experiencing slight bruising or swelling.
Do not wash or touch your face for at least 12 hours.
Restrict facial movements for one day.
Avoid applying makeup or facial cream for at least two days.
Do not pull your skin, massage, scrub or exfoliate the skin for at least three weeks.
Do not perform any strenuous activity or heavy lifting for three weeks.
You can take pain medication as required after the procedure.
If at all possible, avoid aspirins for the next two weeks after the treatment.
Try keeping your head elevated for a week.
Sleep on your back to prevent any swelling.
Avoid straining or placing pressure on your face.
Do not schedule dental treatments for at least two weeks after getting the PDO thread lift.
This place is an other world experience. I promise you won't regret it! I never understood the difference between MedSpas but after speaking with Dr. Patel and having her inject me... WOW! Wish I was more educated before about HOW important it is for the person injecting you to TRULY understand anatomy. Dr. Patel is SO knowledgeable and I truly appreciate that she continues to educate herself by attending seminars and getting certified for all kinds of things that will likely become "mainstream" in like 5 years. I'm okay with her being out of office when I need her for that reason, haha. She never pushes fillers or botox. On the other hand, she encourages you to take CARE of your skin and try anti-aging laser remedies (they offer so many types!). I'm literally never going anywhere else!
" She's the best hands down "
Dr Desai is wonderful.. very knowledgeable
"Dr. Patel is an exceptional practitioner that goes above and beyond for her patients (I have been in the cycle of finding a good dr since my teens). She’s thoughtful in her approach, honest and transparent about what will/won’t work and never pushes anything on you outside your comfort zone. She’s all about the science, understanding underlying causes and proposes innovative treatments to move forward and get you to where you want to be. I have been seeing her for almost 3 years now for a range of issues and topics. What she’s given me is so much more than how I feel about myself, her thoughtful regimes and treatment plans have changed the quality of my life. I would recommend her in a heartbeat! "
OMG- Dr. Patel is amazing!! So very, very pleased with the results from the Secret RF procedure. I had no idea that this 77 year old face could look so good without having a surgical facelift. Thank you Dr. Patel and the great staff at Renew Laser & Skin!! Your Forever Client
I have sensitive skin and rosacea. I feel Dr. Patel really listens to my concerns, uses her vast knowledge to suggest solutions, and customizes them to my situation. I highly recommend Dr. Patel and the entire staff at Renew Laser & Skin.
I have been seeing Dr. Desai since 2014 for various treatments and she is amazing!!! She listens to your concerns and gives her honest opinion. I use to live in New York for few years but only got my treatments done by Dr. Desai when I use to visit Houston. I highly recommend her and her team. Everyone is great!
OMG... I'm in love with the results of the injections I received that created a jawline. Thank you Dr Desai & Dr Patel!

Drs. Nina Desai and Dhara Patel are proud to offer the PDO thread lift for men and women in the Sugar Land, TX area. PDO thread lifts are a safe and effective option for anyone who wants to rejuvenate their skin without undergoing surgery. This gives patients the ability to lift and contour their face with minimal downtime. This procedure involves dissolvable threads to renew and lift drooping skin on the face. Once completed, the patient's complexion will look smoother and tighter. There are many different kinds of PDO threads, and they can be tailored to meet your specific goals. Reach out to Renew Wellness Center for more information on PDO thread lifts.
PDO threads stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. These two proteins are fundamental in supporting the skin, providing its smooth and firm texture, lifted appearance, and natural glow. PDO threads can transform and correct your appearance on multiple levels.
Any part of the face and neck can be treated to help improve skin laxity (sagging), wrinkles, and folds.
For patients who have minimal signs of aging, droopy skin, or fine lines, a PDO thread lift can help rejuvenate these conditions. Ideally, the candidate would have good mental and physical health prior to scheduling the procedure. PDO thread lifts are a great solution for men and women who aren’t looking to undergo surgery or treat their skin with fillers/injectables. Alternatively, some patients will choose to combine thread lifts with BOTOX or dermal fillers to maximize their results. Based on your goals, our team at Renew Wellness Center will help determine if you are a good fit for a PDO thread lift.
The PDO thread lift procedure typically takes less than 45 minutes.
A series of 3 treatments is recommended.
Your face will be numbed with an anesthetic to reduce pain or discomfort during the treatment. Some patients say the PDO thread lift process feels similar to getting dermal fillers. Most discomfort occurs within the first 24 hours. This may feel like a mild stinging or itching sensation with soreness that will fade over time.
You may experience swelling and skin puckering for up to 7 days.
