Is your face and skin lacking volume and lift?

PDO Threading is a minimally invasive treatment that tightens sagging skin tissue and replaces lost volume by lifting and promoting collagen production. During treatments, threads made of PDO (Polydioxanone) are introduced into the deeper layers of the skin. Once placed in the face, neck or body, these threads have 3 amazing effects on the skin:

  1. Instant skin lifting*
  2. Skin tightening by contracting fat tissue*
  3. Collagen stimulation, which promotes cellular renewal and improves your skin’s texture, fine lines, and elasticity.*

PDO thread lifting is versatile, allowing us to treat practically all areas of the body, including the nasolabial folds, lips, eyelids, crow’s feet, glabella, arch of the eyebrows, neck, periocular area, abdomen, inner thighs, buttocks, hands and more.

How do PDO Threads work?

PDO threads are hypodermic needles preloaded with a synthetic monofilament suture containing Polydioxanone (PDO). The PDO suture stimulates neocollagenesis, helping us replace lost collagen! Polydioxanone is FDA-approved and is some of the safest material that can be used in the body. Over a period of 4-6 months, your skin will fully absorb the PDO threads (sutures) without leaving any scar tissue.

What can I expect during this procedure?

PDO threads are inserted into the skin with sterile needles or cannulas. Once inserted, your provider will “zip” up sagging skin onto the barbed threads, providing you with an instant lift! Multiple barbed threads are used on each side of the face for a facelift or neck lift. Smooth threads target fine lines and wrinkles and can help replace lost collagen in many areas of the body. You may feel the threads under your skin until they have dissolved. Depending on the areas treated, the procedure may take 30-60 minutes to contour. There may be slight discomfort during the procedure, but because of the improved techniques and use of lidocaine, clients experience less pain.

What can I expect from the results?

You can expect to turn back time! PDO threads restore our youth – diminishing signs of aging by lifting and volumizing treated areas. This procedure improves skin texture, minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, and renews your skin at a cellular level. The results from collagen stimulation in the areas treated will continue to improve for up to 12-15 months post-procedure. You may experience some mild bruising, soreness and swelling for 2 to 6 days after the treatment. You may also experience a mild sensation of tightness for up to 2 weeks and some discomfort.


Ideal candidates are experiencing facial volume loss, sagging skin on the face or neck, jowling, or general collagen depletion in the face or body.

Treatments are safe and the side effects are rare. Our PDO threads and cannulas are FDA cleared, sterile, and inserted by highly trained medical professionals. We take pride in staying up to date on the safest, most effective insertion techniques.
