PDO Threads Q & A

What are PDO threads?

PDO threads are FDA-approved, threadlike devices that your provider inserts underneath your skin to lift tissues, tighten your skin, and stimulate new collagen production without surgical procedures. 

The treatment uses a safe, 100% biocompatible material called polydioxanone to create a nonsurgical facelift that’s beautiful, natural-looking, and long-lasting. 

Polydioxanone is 100% resorbable, meaning your body absorbs and eliminates the material over time in a safe way. Polydioxanone has been used in medicine since the 1980s for sutures in internal organ surgeries and cardiac surgery.

What are the benefits of PDO threads?

The benefits of choosing PDO threads at New Horizons Wellness Center & MediSpa include:

  • Tighter, lifted skin
  • Younger-looking appearance
  • Minimal to no downtime
  • Long-lasting results 
  • Less skin laxity
  • Reduced skin sagging
  • Beautiful results
  • Increased collagen and elastin production

Collagen is a protein within your skin that is necessary for youthful elasticity. Reduced collagen is a main cause of aging skin and sagging.

PDO thread lifts use dissolvable sutures to tighten and lift treated skin. It’s much less invasive than traditional facelift surgeries, and with a lower risk of complications.

Are PDO threads right for me?

To determine if you're a candidate for PDO threads, the New Horizons Wellness Center & MediSpa team discusses your desired results, examines your skin, and reviews your medical history. They tailor a treatment plan that’s best suited for your needs.

Candidates for PDO threads often have modest facial sagging, marked facial pores, or fine wrinkles.

What can I expect when receiving PDO threads?

Before you receive PDO threads, your specialist cleans and numbs the treatment area to optimize comfort. They use a tiny needle to thread PDO materials beneath your skin and secure the threads in place before closing the tiny incisions. The procedure lasts about an hour.

Common side effects include bruising and swelling for 24-48 hours. However, you can resume most typical daily activities afterward. Follow your post-procedure instructions to maximize your outcome. While every patient is different, most results from PDO threads last about 18 months.
