The PDO thread lift is a non-surgical aesthetic procedure that can re-position and “lift” static sagging skin. It begins with small sutures in your skin that trigger fibroblast cells in your body to produce more collagen, giving your skin the structure and elasticity that it needs. This type of procedure generally takes about 30 minutes, and in that time, we can virtually turn back time and change your look with minimal downtime. Restore your youthful look, reflect how you feel and be confident with your thread lift.

The PDO thread lift can improve the structure of your face by using specialized threads (surgical sutures like ones used in surgeries). Using a very fine canula or needle, these threads are carefully placed into the skin.

The threads used in this treatment are made up of soluble polydioxanone (PDO), which relaxes muscles and tendons, stimulates the creation of new collagen (a process known as neocollagenesis) and encourages the synthesis of elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin. All of these processes work to keep your skin looking plump and youthful.

The threads are extremely versatile and can be used all around the face, neck and body. The PDO thread lift procedure can treat vertical and horizontal wrinkles on the forehead, sagging brows, drooping cheeks, lip lines, pronounced nasolabial and marionette folds, sagging jawline, laxity in neck, and wrinkles on the chin.

Different areas of the face are treated with different lengths, textures and thicknesses. Shorter threads are great for treating fine lines around the eyes. Thicker strands are injected into the forehead muscles to aid Botulinum toxic (Botox). Longer threads are used to lift and correct the jawline and neck. Over a six-month period, your body will naturally absorb all of these kinds of threads, leaving you with results that can last for as long as two years.

The effects of the PDO threads can be immediate, giving your skin a naturally improved appearance after your treatment session. In about 10 to 14 days after the session, your body’s natural processes will begin to synthesize the proteins. This process will continue for the next two years, keeping your skin smooth and supple for that time.
