PDO Thread Lift Q & A

What is a polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift?

A PDO thread lift raises and tightens sagging skin tissue using surgical-grade threads that are introduced into the deeper layers of your skin. The threads pull and fix sagging skin and tissue, giving you an immediate youthful look. A PDO thread lift has a threefold effect on the signs of aging, including:

  • Skin lifting that’s apparent in just minutes
  • Collagen stimulation and blood vessel enhancement to improve your skin’s texture and elasticity
  • Skin tightening that happens as a result of contracted fat tissue

A PDO thread lift is the least invasive and most cost-effective way to achieve these goals.

What issues can be treated with a PDO thread lift?

A PDO thread lift combats the signs of aging. This includes:

  • Stubborn facial wrinkles, including crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, and those around the mouth
  • Sagging arm or stomach skin
  • Creases under and around the eyes
  • Sagging jowls and jawlines
  • Slack neck tissue
  • Sunken or lax cheeks

A PDO thread lift is versatile and effective in its treatment scope. Dr. Rafael Nieto can help you understand how a PDO thread lift can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

What happens during a PDO thread lift?

A PDO thread lift is minimally invasive, meaning it involves no incisions or blood loss. You receive a local anesthetic followed by the insertion of PDO threads via a specially made needle. The threads are invisible, but they anchor the skin and lift it upwards.

The procedure takes about 15-30 minutes, depending on the areas you have treated.

How soon will I see results from a PDO thread lift and how long will they last?

You’ll notice an immediate lift to your skin following a PDO thread lift. The look becomes most natural after about one week.

You’ll experience skin rejuvenation after about 1-2 months as your skin’s texture, firmness, and smoothness improve. The threads dissolve after approximately nine months, but you’ll continue to enjoy your excellent new look for several more months.

Retreatments, about six to nine months after the first procedure, help you maintain your look.
