A non-surgical facelift is performed with a PDO thread lift – a procedure in which temporary sutures or threads are used to produce a visible lift in the facial skin. PDO threads are made of polydioxanone. They are used to lift and tighten the skin and stimulate natural collagen production, and are absorbed by the body over time.

Am I a candidate?

If you want to reduce the visible signs of aging while avoiding a surgical procedure, you may be a good candidate for a non-surgical facelift. A PDO thread lift is an excellent choice for anyone who wants tighter skin and more youthful contours in the face and neck. This procedure produces remarkable improvements on women and men who see jowls appearing on the lower third of the face or fine wrinkles on both sides of the cheeks.

How do PDO threads stimulate collagen growth?

PDO threads work to stimulate new collagen production by creating an inflammatory response in the body. This response is known as fibrosis.

Can other areas of the body besides the face and neck be treated with PDO threads?

Absorbable PDO threads can be used to treat both the body and the face. Commonly treated areas of the body include the décolletage, arms, abdomen, buttocks, inner thighs, and knees.

What facial cosmetic issues can be addressed with a PDO thread lift?

PDO threads can be used to enhance the lips by recreating the border. They can also be used to lift the eyes, cheeks, and jowls, tighten the neck, improve wrinkles around the eyes, accentuate the eyebrow arch, and smooth nasolabial folds around the nose and mouth.
