About PDO Thread Lift

COMING SOON!

NON-SURGICAL FACELIFT

A PDO thread lift is a non-surgical facelift where facial skin is lifted and tightened using Polydioxanone (PDO) threads. These threads are anchored and inserted into different layers of the skin using needles, instantly lifting and tightening sagging skin.

Prior to treatment, the skin is anesthetized for minimal discomfort. A PDO thread lift provides instant skin lifting and stimulates collagen production and cellular renewal, improving your skin’s texture for lasting results. This is a great alternative to those not wanting to undergo a surgical procedure such as a face lift.

The threads typically dissolve within six months. However, due to the increase in collagen production, the positive effects of a PDO thread lift last between 12-24 months for most patients.
