What Is a PDO Thread Lift?
If you want to achieve a younger look but aren't quite ready for the cost and recovery time of a surgical facelift, a PDO thread lift may be the perfect option for you. At Starwood Med Spa in Frisco and Plano, TX, our experienced team offers PDO thread lifts to lift and tighten sagging skin, reducing the signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, and saggy skin. A PDO thread lift is a nonsurgical procedure that uses medical-grade sutures made from PDO (polydioxanone), which are injected into the skin and pulled tight to lift the skin of the face. Over time, these sutures will dissolve and stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin to rejuvenate your skin for a healthier, more youthful appearance. If you're ready to learn more about achieving a tighter, smoother, and rejuvenated look without surgery, contact Starwood Med Spa today.

how does a PDO Thread Lift work?
During your consultation, a member of our team will listen to your goals and work with you to create a PDO thread lift treatment plan to meet your needs. Depending on your aesthetic concerns, a PDO thread lift can address signs of aging around the eyes, cheeks, nasolabial folds, jowls, jawline, and neck. Before they begin, your team member will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area to keep you comfortable during the procedure. A very fine surgical needle is used to insert the PDO threads into the targeted area(s). They will then gently pull the threads to tighten them, lifting the skin for a rejuvenated, younger look. After your PDO thread lift, you may experience some swelling, bruising, or redness in the treatment areas, but it typically goes away quickly. You will have some restrictions for 1 — 3 days post-procedure and the total recovery time is about two weeks. Your team member will give you detailed instructions on aftercare. Many patients can see results almost immediately, but more noticeable results will continue to improve over the next few months as new collagen and elastin begin to form.
PDO Thread Lift FAQ
Are PDO thread lifts painful?
No, they aren't. Because our team members will numb the treatment area prior to your PDO thread lift procedure, most patients don't report feeling any significant discomfort. During the tightening part of the procedure, you may experience a tugging sensation.
How long does it take to get a PDO thread lift?
A PDO thread lift is a very quick procedure, often only taking about 45 minutes.
How long does it take to see results from a smooth PDO thread lift?
Quite a few patients often notice almost immediate results. However, noticeable results start to be seen over the weeks and months as new collagen and elastin develop in the skin, giving you a healthier, younger look to your skin.
How long do PDO thread lift results last?
It will depend on the health and condition of your skin, but generally, most patients can see their results last around 18 months or longer before a touch-up procedure is recommended.
