A PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that LIFTS and TIGHTENS saggy skin without surgery, using threads made of Polydiaxanone (PDO). Biocompatible material similar to dissolvable surgical sutures. After threads are inserted, your skin gently reacts creating a mild inflammatory response that stimulates collagen production and strengthens the skin. While the threads dissolve in about 4-6 months, the collagen they create stays around for much longer – up to 24 months. Our office carries large lifting threads as well as miniature smooth threads.
