What is a PDO Thread Lift?
PDO Threads & Thread Lifting is a revolutionary treatment!
Having been used for many years in areas such as plastic surgery, ophthalmology, gynaecology and general surgery, PDO Threads are the latest and revolutionary treatment for skin tightening and facial rejuvenation, and are a perfect solution for anyone wishing to reverse the signs of ageing.
When inserted into the skin, the threads act as a “scaffold” for the skin that helps to hold the skin against the effects of gravity. These “mesh” of threads can also shape the face by supporting and tightening sagging structures, and are perfect for all areas of the face, in particular areas such as the jowls, double chin, jawline, neck, and specific wrinkles like crowfeet and forehead lines.
The threads are re-absorbed in 4-6 months, leaving nothing behind but the skin structure created which continues to hold for another 15-24 months. By dissolving gradually, the threads stimulate the synthesis of collagen, fibroblasts and angiogenesis. The skin becomes more smooth and radiant, wrinkles disappear, “pores” are narrowed, and sagging tissues are strengthened and tightened.

Who is a Good Candidate for a PDO Thread Lift?
A PDO Thread Lift is best suited for someone who is between 40-70 years of age who has wrinkles and pronounced facial lines that make them look older than they really are. It is also well-suited for individuals who:
- Have minimal signs of aging
- Are looking for alternative fillers that are more effective and long-lasting
- Wishes to avoid surgery, general anesthetic, or undergo prolonged recovery
- Have had some relapse from a previous plastic surgery procedure, like a facelift or neck lift
PDO Thread Lift Procedure
The procedure takes approximately 30-40 minutes to one hour (depending on the number of threads used. On average, approximately 40-50+ threads are needed for the whole face).
The areas of the face that the treatment can be used on include:
- Top and bottom eyelid
- Crow’s feet
- The top lip
- Nasolabial folds, or smile lines
- Marionette lines in the corner of your mouth
- Upper Cheeks
The specialist will then make a tiny entry in the skin near your ear, and a needle (cannula) will hold and guide the thread through the entry point and into the different layers of your skin. This process will be done several times until your desired results are achieved.
PDO Thread Lift: Results and Recovery
Bruising can happen. The degree of bruising varies not only depending on the area being treated, but also from patient to patient. However, you do need to be aware that considerable bruising could possibly occur after the cog thread lift, and plan your social calendar or work commitments around this. Contact your healthcare provider if you experience more serious – though rare – side effects, such as an infection or nerve damage.
- A reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Younger and firmer-looking skin
- Improved blood circulation
- Improved skin tone, texture, pigmentation, and scarring
- Increased skin metabolism
- Activation of the lymphatic circulation
- Brightened skin
The first effects are visible after 3-6 weeks, but considerable improvement appears after 3 months, when induction of new collagen begins. The effect however is long lasting (up to 2 years).
