What are PDO Threads?
PDO threads are a type of dissolvable sutures used in thread lift procedures. Thread lifts have grown popular as a facelift alternative, as they can provide dramatic facial rejuvenation benefits without the extensive surgery and recovery required from a facelift. Our thread lift procedure uses PDO threads to lift and support the skin tissue. After being placed in the body, the threads stimulate collagen production and are safely absorbed over time. This produces both instant and long-lasting results that are largely prolonged by your body’s natural collagen production. PDO threads, named for their polydioxanone ingredient, are preferred because of their collagen-stimulating properties. Additionally, it comes in various shapes to provide a range of results and last for approximately 6 months before breaking down.
What are the Benefits of PDO Threads?
A thread lift with PDO threads is a great alternative to traditional surgery, as it offers the following benefits:
- Tightens and lifts the skin
- Performed in-office in under an hour
- No scalpel or invasive surgical techniques
- Little to no downtime

These benefits make PDO threads a great option for rejuvenating the eyes, cheeks, jaw, neck and more.

IN OUR CLIENTS' OWN WORDS
What Should I Expect on the Day of my PDO Thread Lift Procedure?
The PDO thread lift procedure will begin with Dr. Zamora administering local anesthesia. This is done by injecting an anesthetic beneath the skin in the treatment area, numbing the surrounding tissue. Then, a needle will be used to pierce the skin and insert the PDO threads. The threads will be maneuvered beneath the skin to tighten and lift the skin as desired. Any incision made for the PDO thread lift procedure is so small that no visible scarring occurs. The full treatment is performed in under an hour.
What Can I Expect After My PDO Thread Lift?
Thanks to the minimally-invasive techniques involved, the PDO thread lift procedure requires minimal downtime. Patients can expect some swelling and bruising that typically resolves within a few days. Despite these temporary side effects, you should be able to return to most of your normal activities immediately after your treatment. There are some exceptions, as we advise patients to avoid strenuous exercise and any activity that could dislodge the threads. This includes sleeping on your side and rubbing or massaging the face. Patients can fully return to normal approximately 2 weeks after treatment.
How Long Will the Results of a PDO Thread Lift Last?
The results from PDO thread lifts are long-lasting thanks to the collagen-stimulating benefits of PDO threads. As such, patients often experience results that last from 1-2 years.
