PDO Barbed Threads

A PDO thread lift is a non-surgical facelift where the facial skin is lifted and tightened using a polydioxanone thread. These threads are anchored and inserted into different layers of the skin using needles, instantly lifting and tightening sagging skin.

The actual thread itself will be around for 4-6 months before it is absorbed by the natural process of hydrolysis. As such, it is pulling at and tightening your skin for this entire period, after which the skin stays in place and collagen continues to be produced. Overall, most patients see the results of their thread lift lasting for around 12-15 months in total.

PDO Mono Smooth Thread

A smooth absorbable thread is placed below the skin. As the thread absorbs over time the body replaces it with collagen.
