PDO Thread Lift

Instant Natural Skin Lifting & Tightening

Are you looking for a natural way to lift sagging cheeks or jowls?

Often, this issue is just enough to be bothersome and visible, but not drastic enough to require surgery. Fortunately, an easy, safe, and non-invasive solution is available: PDO Thread Lift. This procedure produces an instant lifting and tightening of the skin as well as restores volume and fullness to the face quickly with minimal downtime.

PDO Thread Lifting involves the insertion of absorbable sutures made of polydiaxone (PDO) into the desired areas of the face or body. PDO thread is commonly used in cardiothoracic surgeries and is completely safe. It fully breaks down within the body over 4-6 months, and does not create any scar tissue. During that time, it promotes collagen production, and the skin structure created will maintain the lift for another 12-15 months.

  • Lift & Tighten Sagging Skin:

    • Brow, cheek, jowls, neck, underchin fat

    • ​Breasts, underarm​, knee

  • Contour:

    • cheekbones, jawline definition

  • Restore volume loss

  • Reduce wrinkles and lines:

    • Marionette lines (mouth frown lines)

    • Smoker’s lines (lines above lips)

    • Nasolabial folds (smile lines)

  • “Lip pop” in addition to or instead of fillers

The procedure requires little preparation: only a numbing agent on the area of skin to be treated. PDO Threads are needles that are pre-loaded with threads. Simply insert the whole suture under the skin at the dermal layer, parallel to the surface of the skin, and pull the needle out. The PDO thread remains under the skin!


Results are immediately apparent and patients are often amazed at the drastic difference in their appearance before and after the procedure. Maximum lift is seen 4-6 weeks post-procedure.

There are a few ways to use PDO threads to achieve maximum effect:

  • Lift Threads: A series of barbed threads can be implemented in straight lines, which promote a more drastic uplifting of the facial structure, especially the cheeks, jowls, and chin.

  • Mesh with Smooth Threads: The threads can form a mesh beneath the skin which tightens the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

  • Twist threads:  These create volume under the skin and is used for smoothening deeper lines, whether it be the frown lines, crow's feet, smile lines, etc!

Collagen is produced along the length of the threads, achieving the same effect as fillers but using your body’s natural healing ability.
