PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that involves using polydioxanone threads to lift facial tissues. The medical provider inserts the chosen PDO threads underneath targeted regions in the face to lift sagging facial tissues. This procedure can make your face look fuller, smoother, and tighter. The PDO threads also stimulate collagen production, which reverses the signs of aging and makes your face look tighter.

What is a PDO thread lift?

PDO threads are fully absorbable and biocompatible surgical threads made of polydioxanone, a biomedical material commonly used in cardiothoracic surgeries. PDO threads are fully absorbed by your body within 4 to 6 months and don’t leave any residue or scar tissues, making them useful in medical treatments. PDO threads also stimulate collagen production to strengthen the skin’s structure for up to 15 months.

What does a PDO thread lift treat?

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • Skin laxity
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Loss of facial volume
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Jowls
  • Other signs of aging

What are the types of PDO threads?

  • Mono Threads: These are smooth threads that provide a mild lift to facial tissues and stimulate collagen production to reverse the signs of aging.
  • Barbed Threads: These are rough-textured threads that hold onto the facial tissues to provide significant lift and stimulate collagen production to reverse the signs of aging.
  • Twist Threads: These are intertwined threads that promise the most dramatic lifting results and stimulate collagen production, helping you achieve a contoured look.

Premier Aesthetic Dermatology performs PDO thread lifts using NovaThreads, one of the most effective collections of polydioxanone threads in the United States. NovaThreads are available in numerous types, including smooth threads, twist threads, barbed threads, and molded threads. Our medical providers will select the ideal types of PDO threads for you after a thorough consultation. The decision will be based on your goals and the degree of facial sagging.

What are the side effects of a PDO thread lift?

A PDO thread lift has minimal side effects, such as redness, swelling, tenderness, numbing, and bruising around the treatment areas. The side effects dissipate gradually over a few days.

Is there any downtime after a PDO thread lift?

A PDO thread lift doesn’t involve any downtime. You may resume your daily activities and work immediately, but please avoid high-intensity workouts for a day or two.

When will I see the results of a PDO thread lift?

You will notice the results of a PDO thread lift immediately after the treatment. Your facial skin will look fuller, tighter, and more sculpted. The results will continue improving for several weeks and months as your body produces new collagen fibers to reverse the signs of aging.

How long do the PDO thread lift results last?

The results of a PDO thread lift last for up to 15 months. Even after the NovaThreads are metabolized by the body, the results of collagen production will last for 12 to 15 months.
