Non-Surgical Safe Solution for Sagging Skin
As we age, time takes a tremendous toll on our skin. Loose skin creates sagging bags that are hard to cover.

PDO is a safe, effective, and dissolvable thread used to pull and tighten skin to dramatically improve your skin's health and reduce the signs of aging without surgery.The procedure is simple and only requires local anesthesia.Patients may experience minimal pain, with minimal bruising, but will see rapid recovery.

PDO Threading FAQs:
What is the recommended candidate age for PDO Threads?
PDO is recommended for both women and men ages 30-60 who experience moderate
sagging in the midface, jowls, nasolabial folds, neck, and eyebrows. In addition to relieving
sagging skin, patients may also experience improvement in skin texture, fine lines, and elasticity from collagen stimulation and neovascularization, which will help soften wrinkles and fine lines and give the skin an overall firmer and tighter look. The procedure is also great for younger patients who are looking to define their jawlines with sharper V-lines and obtain a tight and contoured facial structure, or fix droopy eyelids.
What are the benefits of PDO Threads?
Benefits of PDO Threads include:
• Excellent alternative to surgical options
• Long-lasting results
• Little risk of adverse reaction
• Little to no downtime
• Minimal to no scarring
• No incision
• Treats several areas of the face and body
• May be repeated as necessary
• Softens sagging, folding, or hollowing in the mid-face
• Softens jowls along the jawline
What kind of results can be achieved with PDO Threads?
Results are immediate. You do not have to wait weeks or months to see
results. Although individual results may vary, common results achieved with PDO Threads include:
• Heart-Shaped, higher cheekbone contouring
• Cat eye contour
• Tightened, defined jawline
• Softer smile lines
• Softer eyebrows
• Smoother necklines
Do PDO Threads interfere with other procedures?
PDO Threads are a great procedure to include with other treatments such as lasers, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), microneedling, injectables, BOTOX®, Xeomin®, and fillers. The threads can be used to target sagging skin, and fillers can be utilized for deep lines to create an overall youthful appearance to the face. Schedule a consultation to learn more about treatment combinations to maximize the effects of PDO threads.
How long does the PDO procedure take?
The procedure takes an average of one hour but can take anywhere between 45 minutes to 90 minutes. Patients will see immediate results after the procedure, which can last from one year to 18 months.
Can you feel PDO Threads?
The actual puncture points of the threads may take a few weeks to heal, which means you may experience redness, soreness, and often a bit of tightness.
Do PDO Threads build collagen?
The PDO Threads remain under the skin, but they eventually dissolve, spurring the body to naturally produce more collagen to tighten the skin. The threads also anchor the skin and lift it upward.
Are PDO Threads better than fillers?
If you have drooping and sagging skin, then a thread lift is going to deliver better results than dermal fillers as it will help to lift and tighten your skin. However, if you’re simply struggling with volume loss around your cheeks, then dermal filler injections may be the best option.
