What is a HD-PDO Thread Lift?
As the body ages, the skin loosens and sags, including that on the forehead, eyes, and lips. Unfortunately, this can cause your face to look older than your real age. Thankfully, there is a treatment available that can help your skin regain what has been lost during the aging process.
Originating in South Korea, the PDO Thread Lift is a minimally-invasive treatment which uses threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO) to lift and tighten loose and sagging facial skin. The treatment can remove or reduce wrinkles and improve the skin’s texture, creating smoother and younger-looking skin. To learn more about PDO Thread Lift, call (213) 320-3626 or contact us online.
Who is a Good Candidate for a HD-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 inpiduals 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
HD-PDO Thread Lift Procedure
The PDO Thread Lift procedure will usually take about 15-30 minutes. During your appointment with the healthcare specialist, you will first be given a topical anesthetic to reduce any possible pain, and the injection sites on your face will be marked with a white pencil.
The areas of the face that the treatment can be used on include:
- Top and bottom eyelid
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead & frown lines
- Dropping brows
- Nasolabial folds, or smile lines
- Marionette lines
- Creases at the corners of the mouth
- Sagging jowls & dropping cheeks
- Neck bands
- Lip lines & thinning lips
- Any other area of the body that might need and smoothing
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.
What is HD-PDO & Why is it beneficial for you?
Polydioxanone (PDO) is proven to be one of the most biocompatible materials in the medical industry. HD-PDO threads are a new range of absorbable surgical suture, specifically designed for nonsurgical treatment of the face and body.
Our facility in Italy has developed a novel production process that is patented. By adjusting temperature and pressure, the porosity and crystallinity of the polymer are greatly reduced and the result is High-Density HDpdo. This technique creates extended duration and solid tensile resistance as opposed to typical HD-PDO threads. This diminishes the need for injectable anesthesia and the use of thicker more painful threads.

HD-PDO Thread Lift: Results and Recovery
There may be some slight bruising and swelling due to the injections. However, recovery from the procedure takes only 2-3 days to a week, and you can return to work the same day. Due to its non-invasive nature, the procedure will not leave behind any scars. However, you should avoid any dental work for about 2 weeks afterward, and strenuous activity for 2-3 weeks afterward. Contact your healthcare provider if you experience more serious – though rare – side effects, such as an infection or nerve damage.
The HD-PDO threading provides instant results, with optimum results appearing after about 3 months. The HD-PDO threads will stimulate your skin cells, and cause new collagen and blood vessels to form around the threads. Also, the threads cause the fat tissue to contract, tightening the skin on the face. The results of this tightening and rejuvenation process include:
- 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
After about 6-8 months, the HD-PDO threads will harmlessly dissolve, but they will leave behind a prolonged rejuvenation effect that will last about 2-3 years.
