A thread lift is a procedure that uses a dissolvable suture to tighten and lift your skin. It’s a less invasive procedure than a facelift and can often be performed in under 45 minutes without needing to go under a scalpel.

Polydioxanone (PDO) thread lifts use a biodegradable polyester suture. They’re best suited for rejuvenating your skin while some newer types of thread lifts are better at lifting sagging skin.

Let’s take a look at what makes a PDO thread lift different from other thread lifts and what you can expect during the procedure.

A PDO thread lift is designed to subtly lift the facial features to reduce fine lines and wrinkles while encouraging collagen production for more volume in the treated areas. PDO threads come in a variety of textures for customized treatments.

PDO threads are one of three types of sutures commonly used in thread lift procedures. The other two types are made from polylactic acid (PLA) and polycaprolactone (PCA).

PDO threads have been around the longest of the three and have been used in surgeries since the 1980’s. They’re made from a colorless polyester that breaks down in your body after about 6 months.

The presence of these sutures in your skin triggers cells in your body called fibroblasts to produce more collagen. Collagen is the protein that gives your skin its structure and elasticity. Loss of collagen is one of the main causes of aging skin.

The cost of this procedure depends upon the kind of thread used and the number of threads used. During your complimentary consultation the cost of your procedure will be discussed and determined.

I received threads on my chin/jaw line. I am extremely pleased with the results. The procedure itself caused almost no discomfort at all. The downtime was minimal, make up covered an issures. It has bee a few weeks now, and I can truly tell a difference. I’m going back for more!


The threading procedure was quick and the discomfort was minimal. One day post procedure, I had only experienced mild pinpoint bruising, some tightness in the area, and mild tenderness. All of which I was made aware and told would improve over time. It did! I have been able to return to normal activities with no difficulty.

I had the threading procedure done on my face and the results were amazing! I could see immediate results with minimal bruising and very little discomfort. I would highly recommend this procedure. I had it done on my eyebrow to lift it and on my jowls. Very pleased!
