PDO Thread Face Lift
Polydioxanone (PDO) is a dissolvable suture material, commonly used in cardiothoracic surgery due to low reactivity of this suture in patients. There are 2 types we use in aesthetics:
Smooth threads are the width of a strand of hair. We carefully lace them around a cannula and place them under the skin. Your body will recognize this dissolvable suture material as a foreign body and build new collagen & elastin around the strand. When the thread has dissolved, your intentionally structured collagen & elastin remain. Your final results may include additional facial volume, skin thickness, and smoothed out textural issues.
Suspension threads are textured to anchor the skin and suspend it. Suspension threads are a non-surgical, non-scarring facelift alternative. To picture what your suspension results may look like, use your index fingers to pull your cheeks up and back. New collagen then grows in the trajectory of the strands, like replaced velcro.
Examples of suspension threads for lifting. Puckering is temporary and lessens every day until finally settling 1-2 weeks after treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does puckering last after suspension threads?
Typically 3-14 days after your procedure you'll have a small zone of bunched up skin near the treatment's origin area. Your skin will settle down the thread over the first two weeks, as the puckering softens.
Do PDO Threading treatments hurt?
Due to numbing, patients report very low pain during treatment. For the first two weeks after treatment, suspension patients may experience mild to moderate discomfort. We offer Pro-nox to reduce the discomfort of treatments, which is why patients come us for PDO Threads from DeBary, Sanford, Lake Mary, and Orlando. For smooth thread treatments, there is mild discomfort during treatment, and only mild discomfort for up to 5 days after treatment.
Do PDO Suspension Thread Lifts replace facelifts?
PDO suspension lifts do not provide facelift-level results. During a facelift, excessive skin is removed, leaving a scar. Suspension thread lifts do not result in excessive skin removal, which is why they are scarless treatments.
How long do PDO Thread results last?
Results lasts as long as your body keeps the collagen formed after treatment. The amount of collagen your body forms in response to the treatment is also a very important factor of duration. Most patients see their results last for about a year.
