What is PDO Threading? 

PDO threading, commonly referred to as a “thread lift,” is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that utilizes dissolvable sutures made from Polydioxanone to lift and tighten sagging skin. Unlike traditional facelifts, PDO threading involves minimal incisions and is often performed in the office with local anesthesia. The sutures are inserted into the skin for a supportive structure for the skin to form around, resulting in a more youthful and lifted appearance. PDO threading can be used on various areas of the face, including the brow, cheeks, jawline, and neck. Results can last 18 months or more, making it a popular alternative to more invasive procedures.

Why Choose PDO Threading? 

PDO threads have been in surgical procedures for over three decades and are a superior type of thread. These threads feature patented, molded barbs that securely anchor in the underlying facial tissue, ensuring a longer-lasting and more significant lift. 

What Makes PDO Threading Different From Other Procedures? 

PDO Threading offers an effective nonsurgical facelift by providing a powerful lifting effect. These threads sculpt facial lines and restore the youthful “V” shape. Whereas facelift procedures require downtime, PDO threads offer a minimally invasive alternative.
