Understanding How a Polydioxanone Thread Facelift Works

Non-surgical facelifts are ideal for younger-looking skin if you aren’t interested in an invasive treatment. A polydioxanone (PDO) thread facelift eliminates the need for cutting and general anesthesia while achieving a more youthful look. 

Gifty Aidoo, FNP-C, and Nandeesh Veerappa, MD, At Aesthetic Lab in Modesto, California, offer PDO thread facelifts to make you feel and look younger. Our thread facelifts rejuvenate your appearance without surgery or extensive downtime.

What is PDO thread?

PDO thread is a suture-like polymer that’s flexible, durable, and absorbable. It’s perfect for minimally invasive skin rejuvenation, tightening, and lifting. Surgical experts have been using PDO suture material for many years. It’s a completely safe substance that is non-toxic and biodegradable. 

It’s not only an effective nonsurgical facelift method, but you can also combine it with other rejuvenation techniques like microneedling or laser hair removal to achieve outstanding, long-lasting results.

PDO thread treatment method

Your provider inserts the PDO threads into the skin as a lattice framework. They strengthen the skin structure. During the process of dissolving the threads, your body stimulates extra collagen formation to renew tissue.

Stronger PDO threads pull on sagging skin and deeper wrinkles. Thinner, shorter threads are used to strengthen skin with a lattice structure to stimulate collagen production. Different types of PDO threads allow our experts to create a personalized lifting effect based on your desires.

Minimal intervention with maximum effect

The PDO thread lift is a gentle and minimally invasive wrinkle treatment method. It’s a particularly effective method for skin tightening and a popular alternative to surgical facelifts.

Our specialists insert self-dissolving threads into your skin that vanish over time. These threads stimulate your body’s collagen production to counteract wrinkle formation. You’ll see immediate improvements after a PDO thread lift treatment. Because this stimulates a continual healing process, the thread lift provides long-term results.

Wrinkle-free without surgery

Would you like to avoid the first signs of aging, such as fine lines or deeper wrinkles, but without undergoing a surgical procedure? The thread lift offers the ideal alternative to make wrinkles disappear with immediate results. Some benefits of a PDO thread lift include:

  • Immediate visible improvement
  • No downtime
  • Lasting rejuvenation with continual tissue renewal
  • No scarring

If you have mild to moderate facial sagging and Botox® and fillers aren’t working the way you want, you might be a candidate for the PDO thread facelift. Contact Aesthetic Lab or book a consultation online today.
