A PDO Thread Lift is an FDA-approved treatment that lifts and tightens sagging skin tissue using a dissolvable barbed surgical suture made of polydioxanone (PDO).
Considered the middle ground between facelift surgery and filler, PDO Thread Lifts are a unique advancement in non-surgical face rejuvenation. They're an excellent option for patients who desire firm, taut skin without going under the knife.
During a PDO Thread Lift, we use dissolvable, medical-grade PDO suture material with invisible and painless barbs embedded in the thread. This unique type of thread provides support and lift to the desired area. The barbs ensure the threads grip the underlying tissue and muscles as they're pulled tight.
The lifting thread is introduced superficially into the middle layer of the skin, and the barbs attach to your skin and delicately lift the cheeks and jawline to reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
A PDO Thread Lift produces 3 effects:
Instant skin lifting
Cellular renewal through collagen stimulation
Improvement of texture, fine lines, and wrinkles
