PDO Threads Q & A
What are PDO threads?
Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are strands of a dissolvable material that aesthetic experts use to lift the skin. A PDO thread lift is a nonsurgical alternative to face-lift surgery that can fight wrinkles, sagging, and jowls.
During the PDO thread lift procedure, MyFaceLounge - medical aesthetics by MyFitMed, your provider makes a small incision near your temple and uses a cannula to slide the PDO thread downward into the skin on your face. They anchor the thread with a slight upward pull to lift your skin. Once the thread is in place, they remove the cannula and close the incision.
In the weeks and months after your thread lift, your skin’s natural collagen grows around the thread and the thread eventually dissolves. Because the thread has been replaced by your natural tissue, your results are reinforced for 1-4 years, depending on your age and natural skin laxity.
What are the results of a PDO thread lift?
Before you get a PDO thread lift at MyFaceLounge - medical aesthetics by MyFitMed, you visit for a consultation to discuss your goals and expectations. A PDO thread lift performs two beneficial functions:
The lifting effect of a PDO thread lift elevates your facial tissues upward, so there’s less sagging and drooping.
A PDO thread lift tightens the skin on your face to alleviate some of the most common larger wrinkles. You can enjoy less noticeable smile lines, marionette lines, and wrinkles around your eyes.
How does a PDO thread lift compare to a face-lift?
While a PDO thread lift and a traditional face-lift have similar results, there are a few important differences to keep in mind. The results of a PDO thread lift aren’t as dramatic as the results of a surgical face-lift, but a PDO thread lift has its own considerable benefits.
Compared to a surgical face lift, the advantages of a PDO thread lift include:
- Subtle, natural-looking lifting
- Shorter recovery
- No scarring
- Fewer complications like bleeding and bruising
- Back to work as early as the next day
Thread lifts are best for people who are middle age and have moderate skin laxity. For severe skin laxity and sagging, a surgical face-lift is a more suitable option.
