PDO Thread Lifting Q & A

What is PDO thread lifting?

Polydioxanone (PDO) thread lifting is a non-surgical treatment commonly used to rejuvenate sagging facial skin. During this procedure, our anti-aging specialist Dr. Martinez-Noda injects special surgical-grade threads into your skin with a fine needle.

The thread is made from polydioxanone — a material that has been used for medical sutures for more than 35 years.

The PDO threads lift skin tissue and improve texture. The threads also stimulate the production of new collagen, so your skin continues to lift and rejuvenate in the weeks following the procedure.

Your body absorbs the thread as it dissolves and eliminates it naturally.

How does PDO thread lifting work?

The minimally-invasive PDO thread lifting treatment involves injecting tiny threads into the deeper layers under the surface of your skin. There is some discomfort during this procedure, but it’s usually well-tolerated. You may request a topical numbing agent to help minimize any discomfort.

Once the threads are in place, they lift your face upward, giving the appearance of firmer skin. The PDO threads also promote cellular renewal through collagen stimulation, which improves your skin’s texture and elasticity, and diminishes fine lines. This treatment also contracts fatty tissue under your skin, making it appear tighter.

After the threads dissolve and your body eliminates them, your skin continues to appear firmer, slimmer, and smoother for 6-9 months as a result of new collagen production.

Which areas of my face can be treated with PDO thread lifting?

PDO thread lifting can improve just about every area of your face where you see the signs of aging. It works well to tighten moderately sagging skin and diminish fine lines, including:

  • Frown lines around your eyebrows
  • Cheeks
  • Chin
  • Crow’s feet around your eyes
  • Lips and lip lines
  • Jowls
  • Forehead wrinkles

PDO thread lifting can also help firm and lift other areas of your body, including:

  • Neck
  • Elbows
  • Breasts
  • Buttocks

The unique threads lift, reposition, and secure areas of sagging skin, all without the side effects of invasive surgeries and minimal downtime. Additionally, since PDO threads have been used for many years as surgical sutures, it’s a relatively safe procedure.

You don’t have to live with the visible signs of aging, and you don’t have to endure painful, invasive surgeries, either. Get a younger, firmer appearance with PDO thread lifting from Dr. Martinez-Noda and schedule your consultation today.
