Tighten sagging skin without surgery

A PDO thread lift is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses polydioxanone (PDO) threads to lift and tighten sagging skin. These dissolvable sutures are strategically inserted under the skin to provide an immediate lifting effect while stimulating collagen production. Over time, the threads dissolve naturally, leaving behind firmer, more youthful skin. Ideal for areas like the brows, cheeks, smile lines, jowls, and jawline, a PDO thread lift offers a minimally invasive solution for facial rejuvenation.

PDO thread lift treats:

  • Drooping brows
  • Loss of cheek volume
  • Smile lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Jowls
  • Neck laxity
  • Sagging in the lower face and jawline

How does a PDO thread lift work?

During a PDO thread lift, specialized dissolvable sutures made of polydioxanone (PDO) are inserted into the skin using a fine needle or cannula. These threads act as a scaffolding structure, lifting and supporting sagging tissue in targeted areas.

Additionally, the presence of the threads triggers the body’s natural healing response, stimulating collagen production. Over time, as the threads dissolve, the newly produced collagen further improves skin firmness and elasticity, resulting in a lifted, rejuvenated appearance without surgery.

Advantages of PDO thread lifts:

  • Non-surgical procedure
  • Little to no downtime
  • Immediate lifting effect
  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Natural-looking results
  • Long-lasting improvements
  • Customizable to individual needs
  • Gradual and subtle rejuvenation

PDO thread lift FAQs

Is a PDO thread lift painful?

Most patients report minimal discomfort during a PDO thread lift. Local anesthesia is typically used to numb the treatment area, ensuring a comfortable experience.

What is the downtime associated with a PDO thread lift?

A PDO thread lift requires little to no downtime. While some individuals may experience mild swelling, bruising, or tenderness after the procedure, these side effects are usually minor and resolve quickly. Most patients can resume their normal activities within a day or two.

What should I expect during the recovery period?

During the recovery period following a PDO thread lift, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, or tenderness in the treated area. These symptoms are temporary and can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain medication and cold compresses. It’s essential to avoid strenuous activities and excessive facial movements during the initial healing phase.

How long do the results of a PDO thread lift last?

While the PDO threads dissolve naturally within approximately nine months, the results of a PDO thread lift can last for up to two years. This longevity is due to the continued collagen production stimulated by the presence of the threads. However, individual results may vary depending on factors like skin type, age, and lifestyle habits.

Who is a good candidate for a PDO thread lift?

The ideal candidates for a PDO thread lift are generally in good overall health and have mild to moderate sagging or laxity in the facial skin. They may be looking for a non-surgical alternative to a traditional facelift and have realistic expectations about the results of the procedure.
