PDO Thread Lift Q & A

What is a PDO thread lift?

A PDO thread lift, also known as PDO threading, uses sutures made of polydioxanone (PDO). These threads of colorless, biodegradable synthetic polymer give the team at SKIN & LASER AESTHETICS the power to lift and smooth any part of your body.

Threading PDO through your skin gives you three separate benefits:

  • The threads physically lift the skin from the deeper layers through which they’re threaded, giving an instant lift.
  • As they’re threaded through, the PDO threads pull together fat tissue, resulting in plumper, fuller-looking skin.
  • The act of threading the PDO through the skin triggers the production of collagen, a protein in the skin that helps it look full and young.

PDO threads have been used for more than 30 years to close up wounds. They’re ideal because they’re strong enough to direct the skin but safe enough to break down naturally in the body over time.

What are the benefits of a PDO thread lift?

The cosmetic benefits of a PDO thread lift are very similar to that of a face-lift but without any of the pain or downtime. In fact, a PDO thread lift is a “lunchtime procedure,” meaning you can have it performed at SKIN & LASER AESTHETICS and continue normally with your day immediately after. This is a safe, effective, and easy way to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, contour the face, correct skin sagging, and reveal more youthful looking, beautiful skin.

Is a PDO thread lift safe?

PDO thread lifts are very safe. The procedure itself is minimally invasive and very quick; most PDO threading takes a half hour or less. What’s more, the only pain relief you need is a topical cream or local anesthesia.

Over time (usually about six months), the threads will break down and be safely absorbed into your body. The lifting of the skin will remain intact for at least three months after the threads disappear because the threads have already stimulated cellular rejuvenation.  

Is a PDO thread lift just for face-lifts?

Absolutely not. A PDO thread lift can be used anywhere on the body to produce a lifting and smoothing effect. SKIN & LASER AESTHETICS offers butt lifts, cheek lifts, stomach lifts, and more.
