PDO Thread Lift Q&A

What is a PDO thread lift?

PDO thread lifts are less invasive and painful than regular facelifts and have minimal downtime. A provider may use scalpels during a traditional facelift to remove sagging skin, but with a thread lift, they utilize dissolvable threads to suspend and stitch your skin.

Polydioxanone (PDO) thread lifts use a biodegradable polyester suture to trigger collagen production in your skin. Collagen is responsible for your skin’s ability to heal and revitalize. The sutures easily break down in your body after six months.

Collagen can decrease as you age, and PDO thread lifts ensure your skin stays firm and has an appealing texture.

What are the benefits of PDO thread lifts?

Thread lifts benefit you most if you’re in your 30s to early 50s, are experiencing signs of aging, and want to avoid invasive facelift surgery.

Benefits of a thread lift include:

  • Increased and prolonged collagen stimulation
  • Tightening of your skin
  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Lifting of your neck

You can expect PDO thread lifts to provide subtle, natural-looking results.

What happens during a PDO thread lift procedure?

Your provider thoroughly examines your skin to ensure you’re a good candidate for a PDO thread lift and informs you of any minimal risks relating to the procedure.

Your provider performs the procedure at the MediFreda offices and you’re awake during the treatment. They administer a local anesthetic to make you comfortable. They then use a cannula (thin needle) to insert several threads under your skin at the treatment spot.

You can take over-the-counter (OTC) pain medication before and after your procedure to alleviate any pain or inflammation. It’s important to take minor precautions after a thread lift like avoiding washing your face for 24 hours and refraining from using makeup and moisturizers for several days.

Your provider may recommend sleeping upright for a week or taking certain medications to avoid infection. You can expect to see results from a thread lift for one to three years after the procedure.
