Is your skin lacking lift?

MediThread PDO Skin Lift & Tightening is a minimally invasive treatment that lifts and tightens sagging skin tissue. During treatments, threads made of PDO (Polydioxanone) are introduced into the deeper layers of the skin. Once in place 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 very 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 does MediThread work?

PDO threads are hypodermic needles preloaded with a synthetic PDO absorbable suture. The suture stimulates collagen production and the skin structure.* PDO 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 without leaving any scar tissue. During treatments, there are no cuts or incisions. The procedure is purely injection-based, much like other fillers.

Once injected, your skin cells are stimulated to produce new collagen and new blood vessels to improve skin microcirculation.* At the same time, the PDO threads cause fat tissue to contract and produce a skin tightening effect.*

What can I expect during the procedure?

PDO threads are inserted into the skin with sterile needles or cannulas. Once inserted, the barbed threads anchor to the skin and we will contour the targeted area. The excess threads are then cut off. Depending on the areas treated, the procedure may take 15-30 minutes to contour.

There may be slight discomfort during the procedure, but because of the improved techniques and MediThread’s innovative needles, clients experience less pain.

What can I expect from the results?

Due to the collagen stimulation effects, the lifted facial contour will remain for about 12-15 months after your procedure.* Six months after the procedure, the PDO threads will disappear because they are absorbable.

Am I a candidate?

Yes. MediThread PDO skin lift & tightening is designed according to what you want to treat, and which areas you want to focus on. PDO threads can be used for rejuvenation (improving wrinkles and skin texture), volumizing, lifting and even reducing fat.* The possibilities are endless since different threads are used for different purposes.

Is a PDO thread lift safe?

Treatments are safe and the side effects are rare. PDO threads are inserted with needles and are safely absorbed within 4-6 months. MediThread’s PDO threads have minimized and eliminated all of the side effects associated with older thread lifting procedures (i.e. thread breakage and infection).

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, but there is no downtime.
