How PDO Mono Threads Work

What Is a Thread Lift?

A thread lift is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that lifts and tightens sagging skin by stimulating collagen production. During the treatment, thin, absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) threads, similar to those used in medical sutures, are inserted into the subcutaneous layer of the skin using fine needles. These threads create micro-injuries that trigger the body’s natural healing response, resulting in increased collagen production and tissue contraction. Over time, the threads dissolve, leaving behind a network of new collagen.

Procedure Details

The thread lift procedure typically takes 45 to 60 minutes and is performed under local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Minimal side effects, such as swelling and bruising, may occur but usually subside within a few days. Most patients can resume their normal activities immediately following the treatment.

Areas Treated

PDO Mono Threads can be used to treat various areas, including:

  • Cheeks
  • Brow
  • Jawline
  • Neck
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen

Results and Longevity

The lifting effect of PDO Mono Threads is most noticeable after six months when collagen has formed around the threads. The results can last between 12 to 15 months, depending on individual skin characteristics and lifestyle factors.

Ideal candidates for a thread lift are individuals in their late 30s to early 60s with relatively good skin tone who are experiencing mild to moderate sagging. This procedure is perfect for those who want to enhance their appearance without undergoing more invasive surgical procedures. Candidates should be in good health and have realistic expectations for the treatment outcomes.
