PDO (Polydioxanone) thread lifts are a non-surgical cosmetic procedure used to lift and tighten sagging skin tissues. PDO threads are inserted into the skin to stimulate collagen production and provide structural support. The threads are absorbable and break down over time, but they stimulate collagen production, which helps maintain the lift.

Before PDO Thread Lifts

Here’s how PDO thread lifts work:

Collagen Stimulation: The threads are made of PDO, a material that has been used in surgery for many years due to its safety and ability to be absorbed by the body. When the threads are inserted into the skin, they create a controlled injury that triggers the body’s natural healing response, including collagen production.

Immediate Lift: The threads have barbs or cones that grip the skin and underlying tissue, allowing the provider to reposition the skin and provide an immediate lift.

Long-Term Effects: As the threads dissolve, they stimulate collagen production, which helps maintain the lift and improve skin texture and elasticity over time.

After the PDO Thread Lifts

PDO thread lifts are popular because they are less invasive than traditional surgical facelifts and have minimal downtime. The results can last from 12 to 18 months, depending on the individual’s skin quality, age, and lifestyle factors. Regular treatments may be needed to maintain the results.

PDO thread lifts are used primarily for facial rejuvenation and lifting. They can target various areas of the face to address different concerns, including:

Cheeks and Midface: PDO threads can lift and tighten sagging cheeks, reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds (smile lines) and marionette lines (lines that run from the corners of the mouth down to the chin).

Jawline: Threads can define the jawline and improve the appearance of jowls (sagging skin along the jawline).

Eyebrows: Threads can lift the eyebrows, open the eyes, and reduce the hooding of the eyelids.

Neck: Threads can tighten loose skin on the neck, reducing the appearance of sagging and “turkey neck.”

Overall Skin Tightening: PDO threads can improve skin texture and elasticity, giving the face a youthful appearance.

PDO thread lifts are also sometimes used to tighten and lift sagging skin in other areas of the body, such as the arms, abdomen, and thighs.
