PDO Threads


A non-surgical option for lifting, tightening and repositioning of the skin. As we age and collagen production slows down significantly, poor elasticity of the skin is shown creating undesired volume loss of the cheeks, sagging of the lower face and heaviness around the jawline. PDO (polydioxanone) help to create a mesh like “scaffolding” to the underlying tissue to restore the “V-shape” utilizing dissolvable PDO threads without creating scar tissue.


Benefits of PDO threads include collagen production of the underlying tissue, which results in lifting, tightening, and repositioning of the skin. Areas most commonly treated are:
  • Eyebrow: for lift and to offload a heavy “eyelid” area. Best treated in conjunction with neuromodulator (Botox, Dysport or Jeuveau) and dermal filler.
  • Mid-Face: to restore volume loss to the undereyes as well as mid face. Treatment here can also help sculpt the cheekbone area into more definition.
  • Lower face: Most commonly used to this area of the face, PDO threads can help significantly treat the lower face, combating multiple issues including, marionette lines, sagging jowls and a poorly defined jawline.
  • Neck and chest: A great option for neck tightening and rejuvenation. A combination of tightening threads and smooth threads here are best.
  • Excess skin of the knees, under-arms, and treatment of stretch marks are also great options.


  • Plan for a 1-hour appointment
  • Please avoid blood-thinning medications prior to treatment such as aspirin, Advil, Motrin, Aleve, 48 hours prior
  • Injectable Lidocaine with Epinephrine is used prior to the insertion of threads – the treatment is quite comfortable, however, we prepare patients for an “achy” discomfort afterwards for up to 10 days, while the threads are settling in.
  • Insertion of threads ranges from 15 minutes-45 minutes depending on what area is being treated and with how many threads.
*If you are curious about threads, please contact us for an in-office consultation to go over your options and to discuss if this is right treatment plan for you.

Foreseeable Risks and Discomforts
