What is a PDO Thread Lift? PDO (Polydioxanone) threads are absorbable sutures that were initially developed for use in cardiac surgery procedures. PDO threads have received FDA clearance and are now recognized as a safe, minimally-invasive alternative to traditional aesthetic procedures such as full face, jaw, brow, and neck lifts.A PDO thread lift is a procedure which uses Polydiaxanone threads to lift and tighten sagging skin. Once inserted into the sub dermal layer of the skin, the threads provide an instant “lift” of the surrounding skin, and stimulate endogenous collagen production to improve skin texture, fine lines and the function of elastin, the main protein constituent of elastic connective tissue in skin. The primary benefit to PDO threads over traditional facelifts are reduced costs, scarring, healing time, and invasiveness.
