Achieve an Effortless Lift with PDO Threading
A threaded facelift is a minimally invasive procedure designed to tighten your skin and minimize the appearance of wrinkles and lines. A fully customized procedure, a PDO thread lift is a straightforward 45-minute procedure that delivers long-lasting results without the need for surgery.
Dramatic results that are visible immediately
Aesthetic technology is evolving rapidly, giving us new techniques that yield dramatic, beautiful results without requiring complicated surgical procedures that involve a lot of downtime. An Instalift with PDO threading is one of these innovations. Using surgical-grade dissolvable sutures, we gently lift and tighten your skin, giving your whole face a smoother, youthful appearance.
PDO threads improve your skin from the inside out
Collagen and elastin are two proteins naturally found in our skin, responsible for giving it structure, strength, and elasticity. As we age, our bodies produce less and less of these proteins, causing sagging and wrinkling. PDO (polydioxanone) threads have a special advantage over other types of threads. In addition to lifting your skin upwards, they trigger the production of collagen and elastin as they dissolve, increasing the blood flow to your skin and giving you a lovely glow. Other benefits of a PDO thread lift include:
- Minimal downtime (you may even be able to go back to work the same day)
- Smooths away jowls to restore definition at the jawline
- Rejuvenates the skin
- Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging
- Results are long-lasting
- The procedure is fully customized to target the specific areas you want to improve
- Quick and straightforward procedure that only requires local anesthetic
Who is a good candidate for a PDO thread lift?
A PDO thread lift provides less dramatic results than a surgical facelift. The best candidates for a PDO thread lift are experiencing early signs of aging, such as mild to moderate skin laxity and facial wrinkles. A PDO thread lift is the ideal procedure if you are looking to rejuvenate your face and reduce the signs of aging without the use of surgery. If you are experiencing severe wrinkles and sagging, a PDO thread lift may not be the most suitable option for you.

Is the procedure painful?
During your procedure, you may experience some slight discomfort and a pulling sensation. With the use of local anesthetics, most patients don’t experience PDO threading as being painful. Once the anesthetics wear off, you may experience tenderness and mild swelling or bruising. This typically resolves on its own within 3-5 days.
How long will my results last?
Following your procedure, you should notice an immediate improvement in your skin. These results will improve as any swelling subsides. As the sutures dissolve and stimulate your skin to produce more collagen, your results will continue to improve. For patients with poor skin elasticity, results tend to last for about 1 to 2 years, while younger patients often get to enjoy their rejuvenated, youthful results for up to 3 or 4 years.
