PDO Threads

Picture a more lifted, contoured, youthful face without surgery, stitches, or notable downtime. It’s possible with NovaThreads, or PDO threads. At our med spas serving El Dorado Hills, Elk Grove, Folsom, Roseville, and Sacramento, CA, we use FDA-approved threads to perform nonsurgical facelifts and brow lifts and nose contouring with just a few quick injections. The effects are visible right away and last long after the threads themselves safely and naturally dissolve, leaving behind stronger collagen structures.

If you’re looking for more sculpted cheeks, a sharper jawline, or lifted and more youthful brows, we may recommend PDO threads as part of your fully customized cosmetic treatment plan.

What Are PDO Threads?

PDO threads are made of polydioxanone, a synthetic material that’s safely absorbed by the body over time. The material is so safe, in fact, that it’s even used regularly in heart surgeries. On top of their immediate lifting effect, the threads stimulate collagen synthesis in the skin to keep it supported for even longer.

What Is a PDO Thread Lift?

A thread lift, sometimes referred to as a nonsurgical facelift, involves injecting PDO threads to lift the skin and give it a firmer, more youthful appearance. We inject PDO threads into areas such as the:

  • Brows: PDO threads are one of the most popular options for a nonsurgical brow lift. They lift the brow for a more rested, refreshed look that still appears natural and true to you.
  • Full face: Lift and contour your features to restore or enhance that coveted “V-line” shape, with fuller, defined cheeks and a contoured lower face and jawline.
  • Neck: Sculpt a slender, youthful neck and reduce sagging or skin laxity with PDO threads under the chin. It’s a fantastic temporary neck lift alternative.

If appropriate, one of our #DAGs may recommend enhancing your results with other injectable treatments, such as dermal fillers or BOTOX® Cosmetic. The BOTOX® brow lift is especially popular for those of our clients who are looking to really open up the areas around their eyes.  

What Is It Like to Get a PDO Thread Lift?

PDO thread lifts are quick injectable procedures that only require a topical or local anesthetic to keep you comfortable throughout. The treatment time depends on the number of threads placed, but most appointments take less than 30 minutes.

During your treatment, one of our specially trained nurse practitioners injects the threads just under your skin, either strategically lifting the skin or creating a mesh to serve as a scaffolding for support and future collagen production.

What Is PDO Thread Lift Recovery Like?

You may have some minor bruising, swelling, or redness for 1 to 2 days, but this doesn’t stop most people from returning to work and other activities by the next day. Because PDO threads are injectable, they don’t leave behind scarring or any other visible signs of treatment—other than your rejuvenated new look, of course.

How Long Do PDO Thread Lifts Last?

The threads themselves dissolve over 4 to 6 months, but you’ll likely notice a lifted effect for up to a year thanks to increased collagen production. You may want to return in about 6 months to evaluate how your look is progressing and maintain it with touch-up treatments if needed.
