What Is A PDO Thread Lift?

A PDO thread lift is an FDA-approved procedure that uses surgical-grade, dissolvable sutures to tighten and reposition sagging skin that has lost collagen and elastin. It’s a less invasive procedure than facelift surgery and can be performed in less than an hour. Unlike traditional facelifts, there is minimal downtime with this treatment, and you can return to your normal activities immediately after your appointment is over.

What Are the Benefits of PDO Threads?

There used to be a time when only a surgical facelift could bring back the youthful elegance to sagging, loose facial skin. But not anymore. PDO threads can transform your face to look ten or even 15 years younger without incisions and far fewer risks, downtime, and costs.

How Do PDO Threads Work?

PDO stands for polydioxanone, which is a synthetic, monofilament material. The body absorbs PDO Threads after a few months of being inserted, so there is no need to return for a secondary treatment to have the threads removed. PDO threads come in three main textures:


The PDO screw threads consist of one or two intertwined threads that help restore volume areas where the skin appears sunken or fallen.


PDO cog threads have barbed threads that are used to latch into your skin and reposition parts of your face for added support.


PDO mono threads have smooth sutures that provide volume. These sutures can also help to rejuvenate your skin by stimulating your body’s natural production of collagen.

The tension in the PDO threads creates a lifting effect by pulling the skin together. Your skin will gently react to the PDO threads, and your inflammatory reaction will be induced, resulting in collagen formation around each thread that is placed into the skin. The healing process will further strengthen the skin and enhance the blood flow to the dermis. When the threads dissolve in the months following the procedure, the bundles of collagen that were formed will keep your skin firm, tight, and supple.

What To Expect From Your PDO Thread Lift Procedure

Trained and experienced as medical physicians, Dr. Corey and Dr. Meagan have a unique combination of skills, knowledge, and artistic sense to provide patients with natural-looking results that they feel genuinely confident with.

Starting with your initial consultation, your physician will help determine exactly what areas of your face you’d like to target the most and identify the source of collagen depletion. They will also precisely outline where the sutures will be placed for optimal results.

During your procedure, the PDO threads are inserted using a blunt-tip cannula, an innovative needle that gently slides into the targeted points. As a blunt-tip cannula doesn’t come to a sharp point, it provides a certain degree of resistance upon insertion and leaves behind minimal bruising and swelling. Depending on the number of threads being inserted, the entire treatment should take around 30 minutes to an hour, making PDO threads the perfect “lunchtime treatment” for those busy patients.

There is no recovery time associated with this treatment, but most patients notice results over the course of four to six months. During this time, the PDO threads sutures disappear and reveal smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin. Best of all, patients can enjoy their results for up to 12 months.

FAQS: PDO Threadlift in Thomaston, GA

PDO thread lifts can help you reverse the signs of aging and enjoy a more youthful appearance to your skin. These threads will literally tighten the skin, removing wrinkles and making your skin look and feel much smoother. 

As an added benefit, PDO thread lifts encourage collagen production. This is the most abundant protein in the body, and it is responsible for giving your skin strength and structure. Most wrinkles form because of a lack of collagen, so your thread lift can prevent further wrinkles from forming while adding more volume to your skin at the same time.

PDO threads have a very long-lasting effect on your skin. The actual thread itself will be around for 4-6 months before it is absorbed by the natural process of hydrolysis. As such, it is pulling at and tightening your skin for this entire period, after which the skin stays in place and collagen continues to be produced. Overall, most patients see the results of their thread lift lasting for around 12-15 months. 

The results of this treatment can last for six to 12 months at a time, so how long the results of your treatment lasts will determine how often you should have treatment. Many patients opt to have regularly scheduled PDO thread lifts once or twice a year.

Recovery after a successful thread lift is quite minimal. While there may be some visible swelling and bruising, you can go back to work right away if you’d like. Results should be apparent right after the threads are put into place, but you may notice more in the days and weeks right after they are inserted, as swelling and bruising starts to subside. After a thread lift, you can resume your normal routine. Your provider may advise you not to rub your face vigorously and to avoid sleeping on your side in the initial weeks following the procedure.
