A PDO thread lift is a procedure that uses dissolvable sutures to rejuvenate and lift sagging skin. The treatment promotes collagen production and neovascularization to renew your skin at the cellular level. All of this works together to give you enhanced skin texture, fewer fine lines and wrinkles and more elastic skin.
Face and Neck
Dependent on area
PDO thread treatments use dissolvable sutures to tighten and lift sagging skin. It is a less invasive alternative to a facelift surgery and can be performed without having to go under a scalpel. Polydioxanone (PDO) thread lifts use a biodegradable polyester suture that break down after about 6 months. PDO threads in your skin trigger fibroblasts to increase collagen production to promote structure and elasticity.
PDO thread treatments are minimally invasive. You can expect to see changes as soon as you have the procedure done. Although PDO thread treatments are not permanent, the results last longer compared to alternative cosmetic treatments. Results from PDO thread treatments typically last up to a year before an additional procedure is needed.

How can skin care products help me?
Skin care products, ones that are either dispensed in a physician’s office or sold by prescription, break down the sticky glue between the dead skin cells of the epidermis, causing them to exfoliate. There are literally hundreds of skin care products available on the market—Retin A, Tretinoin, glycolic acid, just to name a few. There are two things you should remember about all these products. One, they all do the same thing, and two, they are all equally effective. It ultimately comes down to your physician’s clinical experience in dealing with your particular skin type and your satisfaction with the product price, look, and feel. It may come down to trial and error when trying to find the correct fit. Skin care products are at the lowest rung of the ladder of skin rejuvenation. Results will be subtle and generally take 3–4 months to materialize. These products will typically improve the appearance of your skin from point A to point B, but most of us expect to see significant improvements. We want to be up at point D, E and F, and we want it yesterday. Skin care products alone won’t get you there, but they are an important first step in the rejuvenation process. Individuals looking for better and faster results need to move up the ladder and consider in-office resurfacing.
