A PDO thread lift is a non-surgical, minimally invasive cosmetic treatment utilized to reduce common signs of facial skin aging, such as fine lines and minor wrinkles. Mild to moderate folds and loose, sagging skin are also addressed. Specific facial features commonly treated with PDO threads include:

  • Crow’s feet (the series of wrinkles around the outer edge of the eyes)
  • Nasolabial folds (the lines extending from the nostrils to the corners of the mouth)
  • Marionette lines (the lines starting at the corners of the mouth and continuing straight down to the jawline)
  • Jowls (hanging skin from the jawline)
  • Inconsistent skin texture

PDO Thread Therapy in Holly Springs, NC

The PDO thread lift procedure is a highly personalized treatment, and is performed by our expertly trained medical professionals, led by Dr. Peter Kreymerman at Thrive Skin + Wellness.

During your initial consultation, your symptoms will be carefully examined, and we’ll listen to your aesthetic goals. Additionally, your medical history and allergies will be considered. If you are a candidate for a PDO thread lift, we’ll discuss how the process might work for your needs.

How Do PDO Threads Work?

Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are dissolvable sutures that contract skin tissue, essentially “pulling tight” the skin for a smoother, more youthful appearance. At the same time, PDO (as a chemical) stimulates the body’s production of collagen, a protein necessary to generate new skin tissue.

Which PDO Thread Techniques Do You Use?

At Thrive Skin + Wellness, we offer two different kinds of PDO threads: smooth or barbed. Smooth PDO threads are excellent for patients desiring a subtler approach primarily focused on improving skin texture and fine lines without adding as much tissue volume.

Barbed PDO threads contain tiny “barbs” on them to more firmly attach to the surrounding dermal tissue. This can be more beneficial when it comes to lifting sagging skin and correcting folds for longer periods of time.

Do PDO Thread Lift Results Last As Long As Those from Plastic Surgery?

The effects of a PDO thread lift can last 18 months or even longer when combined with a proper skincare routine. On the other hand, a facelift can last for 10 years.

However, not every patient has symptoms severe enough to warrant the significant costs and recovery time associated with plastic surgery. Also, a PDO thread lift allows patients more flexibility to alter their treatment strength sooner if they change their minds.
