What Is a PDO Thread Lift?
PDO thread lifts are a safe, affordable and non-surgical alternative to facelifts. The treatment can be performed quickly and deliver immediate results to clients. Most PDO thread lifts are performed on the face and lightly lift the skin to give a fresh and youthful appearance. The treatment offers an effective way to reduce wrinkles without the requirement for extensive surgical procedures.
The treatment uses dissolvable threads that come in different varieties. Depending on the type of thread used, the treatment will either lift or support the skin to provide subtle aesthetic benefits for a client. The threads are gradually absorbed, but the support structure is maintained for six to eight months thereafter. Additionally, threads are not visible and there will be no scarring from the procedure.
A secondary benefit is that PDO threads stimulate the production of collagen in the skin which helps with elasticity. As we age, elasticity is gradually lost and this is a prime factor in the aging process. Consequently, as more collagen is produced, clients can experience tighter skin around the midface, jawline or neck, along with a rejuvenated appearance. These benefits will last for around 12-18 months.

The Many Uses of a PDO Thread Lift Procedure
PDO thread lifts are commonly regarded as non-surgical facelifts, but they have additional applications. The treatment is used on the cheeks, jaw, forehead, neck and around the eyes to lift or tighten the skin. On the body, sagging skin on the stomach can be tightened, though this doesn’t get rid of excess skin. The treatment also can be used for a non-surgical butt lift and to remove cellulite. Also, skin can be tightened on the back, thighs and upper arms.
Restoring the V-Shape With PDO Threads
A sign of a healthy face is a “V-shape” around the midface, jawline and neck. Unfortunately, as tissue ages, this “V-shape” diminishes or inverts. And while the upper and middle third of the face can be effectively treated with botulinum toxin or injectable fillers, this is more challenging in the lower third. Thankfully, this area of the face is ideal for the application of PDO threads. With the flexibility afforded by the different types of threads, it is possible to create a tailored treatment program to help restore the natural “V-shape” where it has been lost.
The Main Types of PDO Threads We Provide
At Beauti Science Med Spa, we use smooth or barbed threads to deliver the best results to our clients. A smooth thread is used to create a scaffolding that provides a gentle lift and support for the tissues. Barbed threads lift the tissues and reposition the skin to counteract the loss of elasticity. The barbed threads also encourage collagen production for a rejuvenated appearance. Our team of experienced specialists will review treatment options, discuss their recommendations with you and create a plan based on your specific needs.
Common Questions About PDO Threads
How does the treatment work?
The thread is pre-loaded on a needle, which is inserted and then the needle is removed. Absorbable PDO threads stay under the skin and tighten it (smooth) or lift it (barbed). The thread is fully absorbed by hydrolysis within 4 to 6 months and doesn’t create any scar tissue. The foreign body stimulates collagen synthesis and the skin structure created will hold for another 12 to 15 months.
Are PDO Threads safe?
PDO is an absorbable material. Therefore, the complications seen with permanent threads in the past do not occur. Should you not like the results, the threads can be removed immediately after insertion or dissolved with Radio Frequency.
Am I a candidate for PDO Threads?
Good candidates are men and women looking for a non-surgical way to reduce or tighten the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin. The treatment may not be appropriate for people with an acute respiratory viral infection, autoimmune diseases, HIV infection, oncological diseases, mental and neurotic disorders, pregnancy and other related conditions. Our licensed healthcare provider will discuss candidacy in more detail.
