A PDO (polydioxanone) thread lift is a revolutionary technique for skin lifting.  Before being used for aesthetic purposes, physicians used PDO thread safely for decades for medical procedures such as treating gynecological disorders and suturing incisions.  It’s a safe procedure approved by the FDA and can be performed in a short 45-minute office appointment which will barely disrupt your day. A PDO thread lift temporarily lifts and moves the skin for a period of time while promoting collagen to reshape as well as revitalize the feel and appearance of the skin. Depending on the treatment area, the procedure uses either a floating non-barbed thread (these build collagen and do not lift the tissue) or floating barbed thread.  After the site has been given a topical numbing agent and local anesthetic, a needle is used to insert the thread.  Once inserted, the thread acts as an anchor and lifts the skin upwards.  Finally, the excess thread is cut off if needed as in the case of lifting threads.


There are three different types of threads that can be used. PDO mono threads – These are smooth sutures to rejuvenate the skin by stimulating collagen production. PDO cog threads – These have barbs to latch into the skin to support and lift it. PDO screw threads – These are one or two intertwined threads that help restore volume to sunken skin parts.


After the threads are inserted, the skin will begin to tighten as collagen production and blood flow increase to help reshape skin at the cellular level.  This means even after the threads have dissolved, the skin will be reformed, so you experience enhanced skin texture, improved elasticity, and fewer lines/wrinkles for six months to a year afterward.  In fact, many of these results will become visible within a month or two of treatment, depending on how quickly your body produces collagen.  Some patients may require a follow-up treatment for longer-lasting results. The type of thread used in the procedure will determine how long the threads will remain in the skin.  Eventually, the threads will dissolve into the body.  Threads that are thicker usually will last longer.  A typical timeframe for most lifting threads is between nine months to a year.
