PDO Threads

The best alternative to a surgical facelift. No scalpels needed here, just a biodegradable suture that is injected and fixed under the skin, creating an immediate lifting effect. As an added bonus, this procedure also promotes collagen production, doubling down on its tightening and firming abilities.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do PDO threads work?

A polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift is a non-invasive procedure that uses a biodegradable suture to tighten and lift sagging skin. After a long-time use in other medical & surgical specialties, its use in medical aesthetics has been revolutionary. Not only does it mechanically lift & tighten skin instantly, it also promotes collagen production over time, improving structure, texture, and elasticity.

What can I expect during my PDO threads procedure?

As with every procedure, we’ll start with a thorough consultation covering your goals, what to expect, and how it works. The procedure is relatively short, starting with cleaning your skin and applying a local anesthetic for any discomfort. Then the threads are inserted with cannulas, a thin tubing, that are blunt to create a lifted appearance. The procedure takes an average of one hour.

Is there any downtime with this treatment?

There is minimal recovery time with PDO threads. Some bruising and swelling might occur, but should fade within 48 hours of treatment. While you can return to your daily life right away, you should avoid intense physical activity for up to two weeks.

How long until I see results? How long do PDO threads last?

While there is minimal downtime, results will improve as swelling, redness, and bruising subsides. The PDO threads themselves dissolve in 6-8 months, but due to collagen stimulation from the threads the results last from 1-3 years, depending on your unique anatomy.
