What is a PDO Thread Lift and How Does it Work?

A PDO thread lift is a gentle beauty treatment that uses special stitches made of polydioxanone (PDO) to make the skin tighter and look better. These strings help make collagen and give strength to the skin, making it look younger and lifting.

In the process, a little needle is used to put PDO threads into your skin. These strings have little sharp hooks or cones that help to hold them in place and give the lifting power. The threads break down over time, but the collagen made in reaction to them stays forever. This gives long-lasting outcomes.

The threads go in places where skin can’t stretch anymore like cheeks, chin and neck area. Usually, this process is done using a small numbing medicine. The wires are then moved to get the wanted effect of lifting up things.

What makes a PDO Thread lift different from a facelift?

A normal surgery for a facelift requires anesthesia, more incisions, and more time to heal. PDO threadlifts are minimally invasive and do not require anesthesia, incisions, or scarring. They are great for people who don’t want to have surgery but still want the anti-aging benefits of a facelift. PDO threadlifts focus on certain parts of the face like your jaws, cheeks, and neck area. They are also great for people who have already had a facelift surgery and want additional minor touch-ups.

What to Expect During the Process?

Before you start treatment, the experts at Skin Refine MedSpa in Sunnyvale, CA will review your facial concerns and create a specialized treatment just for you. On the day of your appointment, a local numbing agent is applied to the face so you do not feel a thing. The threads are carefully put into the skin before being pulled up and manipulated into the proper position. Usually, the process lasts for around an hour and you see results right away. There might be a little puffiness or redness immediately following treatment, but this will go away in about one week. You can go back to your normal daily tasks soon after the operation, and results can last for up to 18 months.

Advantages of PDO Threadlifts


One of the biggest benefits of PDO threadlifts compared totraditional facelifts is that they are not invasive. This means no surgery is required, lowering the chance of scarring, infection, and other problems. The threads used in this method absorbed by the body, which means they go away over time and don’t have to be taken out.

Quick and Convenient

PDO threadlifts are a short process, usually done in under an hour. This makes them a good choice for people with busy lives or those who don’t want to have surgery that takes longer.

Minimal Downtime

PDO thread lifts require no downtime, making their recovery much quicker than a traditional facelift. Many individuals can return to their regular job the following day, but they might need to stay away from tough exercise or certain skincare for some time.

Natural-looking Results

Threadlifts give a natural look because they help the body make more collagen by itself. This helps to make wrinkles, fine lines and loose skin look better without making it seem fake or pulled.

Candidates for PDO Threadlifts

PDO threadlifts are good for both men and women who want to make their faces look younger. The best people for this operation are those who have some signs of aging, like loose skin or little wrinkles. It is important to have sensible hopes and be generally healthy for this treatment.
