PDO Thread Lift

Have you ever wanted to experience the effects of a facelift without having to undergo surgery?

With a Polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift, you can achieve the same amount of lift and smoothness through a nonsurgical procedure.

Continue reading to learn more about PDO thread lifts and their benefits.

What is a PDO Thread Lift?

A PDO thread lift is a simple but revolutionary procedure to lift and tighten the skin, similar to a surgical facelift but only less invasive. Using a biodegradable and dissolvable polyester suture, the treatment rejuvenates the face and is best suited to lift sagging skin. This results in firmer, tighter, and younger-looking skin that could last for more than 18 months.

The treatment can be performed in areas such as those listed below. 

  • Cheeks
  • Jawline
  • Neck
  • Eyebrows

What Happens During a PDO Thread Lift?


All patients must receive a consultation prior to undergoing a PDO thread lift. During this consultation, we’ll discuss what you’d like to get out of the lift, any concerns, your health history, and the procedure. We’ll also do an assessment of your skin. This will help us ensure you’re an appropriate fit for a PDO thread lift. Once that’s been determined, we’ll begin building your treatment plan.

Day of PDO Thread Lift

Before undergoing treatment, one of our providers will prep your skin by cleansing it and applying a topical anesthetic.

Once the anesthetic begins to take effect, the PDO threads will be inserted into the designated area through a needle. The PDO threads are used because they incorporate small points that create a lifted effect in the targeted area.

After all the threads have been placed, the provider will adjust them accordingly to achieve the desired look you’d like to achieve. The ends of the threads will then be trimmed. Over time, they will be absorbed into the skin which will stimulate the production of collagen. This will help you maintain a lifted look after the threads have fully dissolved.

Following the procedure, your doctor will provide you with aftercare instructions and schedule any follow up appointments with you.
