PDO Thread Face Lift Q & A

What is a PDO thread facelift?

A polydioxanone (PDO) thread facelift is a fast, safe, minimally invasive alternative to the traditional surgical facelift. Instead of large incisions, the aesthetic experts use special sutures to lift and tighten your skin to rejuvenate your look. 

With a PDO thread facelift, Aesthetic Lab can treat almost any part of your face showing the visible signs of aging, including the:

  • Cheeks
  • Jaw
  • Neck
  • Eyes

A PDO thread facelift rejuvenates your look without surgery or extensive downtime. 

Am I a candidate for a PDO thread facelift?

The expert injectors at Aesthetic Lab determine if you’re a candidate for a PDO thread facelift after a consultation. They ask detailed questions about your beauty concerns and goals. They also review your medical history and examine your skin.

You may be a candidate for the PDO thread facelift if you have mild to moderate facial sagging and you no longer get the results you want from Botox® and fillers. 

A PDO thread facelift also makes a good option for those who want to revitalize their look but are unable to have a surgical facelift.  

What happens during a PDO thread facelift?

Your PDO thread facelift is an in-office procedure that takes about an hour. Your provider at  Aesthetic Lab creates a personalized PDO thread facelift treatment plan that matches your needs. They review the details of your plan at your consultation so you know what to expect.

During the procedure, your provider gently injects the threads into the subdermal layer of your skin. These threads have tiny structures that grab onto the underside of your skin, pulling it up to lift, tighten, and contour your loose and saggy skin.  

How long is recovery from a PDO thread facelift?

You may feel sore and notice redness and swelling at the site of your sutures following your thread lift. However, you can resume most of your usual activities the same day. 

Despite the minor side effects, you should see improvements in your look immediately following your PDO thread facelift. Over time, the PDO threads dissolve. However, the procedure stimulates your skin’s natural healing process, stimulating collagen production, prolonging the results.
