PDO Threads

A PDO Thread Lift is a noninvasive treatment. After numbing and massaging anesthesia on the area of treatment, the PDO threads are inserted into all layers of the skin. Once injected, the threads anchor the skin and firms it upwards.​

Depending on the size of the areas treated, the procedure takes 30-60 minutes. There is mild discomfort during the procedure, but patients are experiencing less pain because of the improved techniques.​

Your skin is instantly lifted after a PDO thread lift, as the threads support the skin in its new position. It is usual for the thread to give a tighter appearance immediately following the procedure. In about one week, your results will begin to look much more natural.

​Your doctor may prioritize either skin rejuvenation or skin lifting during your procedure. Depending on the technique used, the results will vary from person to person.

About six months after the procedure, the PDO threads will disappear because they are absorbable. The facial contours will remain for about 3-6 months because of the cellular rejuvenation effects. Your skin cells produce new collagen and new blood vessels. This improves skin microcirculation. The PDO threads cause the skin’s fat tissue to minimize, making a skin tightening and facial slimming effect.



The PDO Thread Lift tightens sagging skin tissue using Polydioxanone (PDO) threads. The threads sink into the deeper layers of the skin. Once introduced, the threads produce an instant lift. Threads provoke cellular renewal through collagen stimulation and neovascularization. They also contract fat tissue, resulting in skin tightening.


PDO thread lift is very versatile. Practically all areas of the face are treated, including the following:

  • Undereye area
  • Eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet (wrinkles around eyes)
  • Cheeks
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Naso jugal folds
  • Wrinkles around mouth
  • Jawline
  • Jowls
  • Neck

The rejuvenation effects kick in after 1-2 months – you will notice better skin texture, firmer, and smoother skin.


The threads would have dissolved in about nine months after the treatment, but the results will continue for many more months. We recommend repeating the procedure every six to nine months after the first procedure to allow for a long-lasting result of up to 3 years.

Yes. You may get tender and soft skin after the procedure. If you get mild aches, aloe vera soothes irritation.
