A PDO thread lift is a non-surgical procedure designed to lift and tighten sagging skin on the face using Polydioxanone (PDO) threads. These threads are made of a biodegradable polyester suture material that is commonly used in medical applications.

During the procedure, the PDO threads are inserted into the skin using small needles. The threads have tiny barbs or cones that anchor them in place and provide a lifting effect. The threads are strategically placed to target specific areas where sagging or loose skin is present.

Once the threads are inserted, they instantly lift and tighten the skin, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. 
The lifting effect occurs due to the physical support provided by the threads and the stimulation of collagen production in the treated areas.

Collagen is a protein that plays a crucial role in maintaining the skin’s firmness and elasticity. As the PDO threads gradually dissolve over time, they stimulate the production of new collagen in the skin, further enhancing the lifting and tightening effects. This collagen production helps improve the skin’s texture and overall appearance.

PDO thread has several advantages, including:

Minimum invasion

One of the advantages of PDO thread lifts is that they are minimally invasive and typically require less downtime compared to traditional facelift surgery.

Short duration

The procedure can often be performed in under 45 minutes, and local anesthesia or topical numbing agents are usually used to ensure patient comfort during the process.

Mild side effects

After the procedure, some temporary downtime is required due that swelling, bruising, or discomfort at the insertion points may occur. These side effects are generally mild to moderate and subside depending on individual patient process of healing.

It’s important to note that the results of a PDO thread lift vary from person to person and typically last around 1 to 2 years, as the threads gradually dissolve. Maintenance treatments can be done to prolong the effects.

If you are considering a PDO thread lift, it is recommended to consult with our qualified medical professional who can evaluate your specific needs, discuss the potential benefits and risks, and determine if this procedure is suitable for you.
