PDO Thread Lifts are a non-surgical procedure that smooths and tightens by lifting the deeper layers of skin while stimulating collagen production resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Threads are a minimally-invasive, resorbable suspension suture with bi-directional cones. The sutures lift and reposition subdermal tissue while the bi- directional cones hold the suture and facial skin in an elevated position. The suture and cone material are both made of glycolide / L-lactide (PLGA) and over time they stimulate fibroblasts for gradual collagen maturation and are designed to reposition volume in the mid-face with a goal of a natural-looking result.
The suture and cone material is made of Poly L Lactic acid and Glycolide polymer, both absorbable. Over time, they stimulate fibroblasts for gradual collagen maturation and are designed to reposition volume in the mid-face with a goal of a natural-looking result
The procedure lifts and restores contours to the mid-face, lower face, and neck, depending on the patients’ requirements. We can combine this treatment with Fillers like Radiesse, Juvederm line of fillers, Revanesse® VersaTM, Restylane line of fillers, or Exilis Elite skin tightening procedure to give better results.
During the in-office procedure, areas of desired lift are marked on the patient. Our physician will insert a needle to a depth of 5mm and guide it through the subcutaneous tissue of the mid-face and extract at each bi-directional exit point. The sutures have bi- directional absorbable cones that hold them in place. The treatment takes approximately 45 minutes.
Thread lifts offer instant results that continue to improve over time, creating a youthful appearance that lasts up to 2 years.
Thread lifts are suitable for both men and women who are interested in refreshing their appearance without a major surgery or lasers. It offers a new and unique technology to lift sagging facial skin. Suitable candidates have good skin quality, with moderate sagging of the skin in the mid-face. Skin should not be too thick/heavy or too thin.
The cost of the procedure varies depending on the number of threads required. Most clients can expect to pay on average between $1,300 – $1,700.
Following treatment, patients may experience minor pain, swelling and bruising. Recovery time is minimal, with most patients returning to normal activities within 2-4 days.
