How Do PDO Thread Lifts Work?

PDO threads are inserted in your skin, pushed through the tissues underneath by a cannula or needle. They will use a bi-directional approach to suspend, lift, and grasp the facial area. 

Once the thread reaches its end point, it will be released and the cannula will be removed from the skin. The practitioner might repeat the process multiple times to achieve the right lift, which means anywhere from one to fifteen threads might be inserted to address the concern.

The threads will then be smoothed with a gentle massage to prevent any dimpling. The threads, once inserted, produce three effects:

  • Immediate skin lifting.
  • Cellular renewal as the collagen production enhances the texture and elasticity of the skin, removing fine lines.
  • Skin tightening as the fat tissues are contracted due to the threads.

The threads are dissolved naturally through simple hydrolysis. Due to cellular rejuvenation, the lift will stay for longer months. The threads contract the fat in the skin and enhance the production of new blood vessels and collagen to promote microcirculation.

PDO Thread Lifts FAQs

The best candidates are men and women who are beginning to experience the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead, drooping of the brow, sagging of the mid and lower face, visible jowls and loose skin on the neck.

For the face, these would be lifting of the eyebrows, naso-labial folds marionette lines, cheeks, jawline and double chins.

For the body, good results are achieved with tightening of loose skin on the arms, thighs and abdomen.

These threads are 100% Polydioxanone which is a clinically proven bio-compatible and bio-absorbable material that is already widely used in medical suturing.

PDO Threads Therapy can be used alone or can be combined with other treatments to deliver optimal results eg: Dermal Fillers, Anti-wrinkle injections, Sculptra, PRP, Micro-needling, Peels, Radio Frequency, and Fractional laser treatments.

Only trained professionals who have attended a full training course are certified to perform this procedure.

There is an immediate improvement seen after treatments with a visible lift in the areas treated. This will improve over a period of 2-6 months as new collagen grows between the threads and gives further lift and tightening to the skin. The PDO threads gradually dissolve over about 6 months, but the resulting lift remains.

This varies depending on the patient’s age at the time of treatment, the quality of the skin, degree of sagging and the number of threads used. However, studies have shown that results can last between 2-3 years based on lifestyle.

PDO Thread lifting is a very safe procedure and complications are extremely rare. Minor complications may include temporary swelling and bruising. Patients may feel slight tightness or a pulling sensation following the treatment but this subsides over a few weeks.
