A PDO thread lift is a non-surgical facelift where facial skin can be lifted and/or tightened using Polydioxanone (PDO) threads. These threads are anchored and inserted into different layers of the skin using needles, instantly lifting and tightening sagging skin. Anywhere from 1-15 threads may be used per section.
A PDO thread lift provides instant skin lifting and stimulates collagen production and cellular renewal, improving your skin’s texture for lasting results. Insertion of non-lifting PDO threads also provides the same benefits of collagen production and cellular renewal without the instant lift. For patients who do not want to undergo major surgery, a PDO thread lift and/or the use of collagen threads can minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, especially over time, with the additional collagen.
The threads typically dissolve within six months. However, due to the increase in collagen production, the positive effects of a PDO thread lift last between 12-24 months for most patients! You can have additional treatments to extend the results even further.
