What is a PDO Thread Lift?

PDO Thread Lift is an FDA-approved, non-surgical cosmetic procedure that can provide several benefits for individuals looking to lift and tighten sagging skin on the face and neck. PDO thread lifts provide natural-looking results, without the artificial appearance that can sometimes be associated with surgical facelifts.

PDO thread lifts not only provide a natural lift but can also stimulate collagen production, a protein that gives skin its structure and elasticity. This can help improve overall texture and quality of the skin.

How does it work?

PDO (polydioxanone) threads are made from a dissolvable material that is commonly used in medical sutures. During the procedure, the threads are inserted under the skin using a needle or cannula. Once inserted, the threads can be gently pulled to lift and tighten sagging skin. Over time, the threads dissolve, leaving behind a network of collagen fibers that can help to support the skin and maintain the lifting effect.

What areas can be treated?

PDO thread lifts can be used to treat a variety of areas on the face and neck, including the…

  • Cheeks
  • Jowls
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Eyebrows
  • What is the downtime?

The procedure is minimally invasive and requires little downtime making it a convenient option for individuals who may not be interested in or eligible for more invasive surgical procedures, such as a facelift. Typical side effects of the procedure include bruising, swelling and tenderness at the treated area. The results of a PDO thread lift can last up to 12 to 18 months, depending on the individual’s skin health and number of threads used.

Overall, PDO thread lifts can be an effective option for lifting and tightening sagging skin on the face and neck. It’s important to note that the benefits of PDO thread lifts may vary depending on the individual’s skin health and the number of threads used. As with any cosmetic procedure, it’s important to choose a qualified provider and to discuss the potential risks and benefits before deciding to undergo treatment.
