PDO Threads: A Non-Surgical Facelift for Youthful Skin

PDO THREADS by Alli B + CO in Yukon OK

As cosmetic treatments advance, PDO Threads emerge as a leading non-surgical facelift technique. These medical-grade and absorbable threads stimulate collagen production, enhancing skin elasticity and reducing signs of aging. Individuals can achieve tighter, smoother skin without invasive surgery with PDO MAX Threads. If you are curious about how PDO threads can benefit your needs, here’s what you should know.

What Are PDO Threads?

PDO Threads represent a groundbreaking development in non-surgical cosmetic treatments. These threads are made from polydioxanone, a biodegradable and bioabsorbable material used in medical suturing for decades, ensuring its safety and compatibility with the human body.

The primary function of PDO Threads is to rejuvenate and lift the skin. When introduced into the skin’s subcutaneous layer, they act as a “scaffold” that helps hold the skin in place, providing an immediate lifting effect. Over time, as the threads dissolve naturally, they stimulate collagen production, a protein responsible for skin elasticity and firmness. This collagen production results in a longer-lasting tightening effect, even after the body has absorbed the threads.

The application of PDO Threads is versatile. Depending on the specific need, different types of PDO Threads are employed. For instance, smooth threads are often used for collagen stimulation, while barbed or cogged threads provide more significant lifting effects.

Advantages of PDO Threads Treatment

The popularity of PDO thread treatment in cosmetic enhancement is not without reason. This innovative approach offers several distinct advantages that make it an appealing option for those seeking skin rejuvenation:

  1. Instant Skin Lifting: PDO Threads provide an immediate lifting effect, tightening sagging skin and softening wrinkles and folds. This instant transformation is often visible right after the treatment.
  2. Stimulation of Collagen Production: As the threads dissolve over time, they facilitate the synthesis of new collagen, a vital protein that maintains skin elasticity and firmness. This leads to longer-lasting results, extending beyond the threads’ life.
  3. Minimally Invasive: PDO Threads Treatment is minimally invasive, unlike traditional surgical facelifts. The threads are inserted through fine needles, eliminating the need for surgical incisions and reducing the risk of scarring.
  4. Short Procedure Time: Typically, the treatment can be completed in 30 minutes or less, making it a convenient option for those with busy schedules.
  5. Minimal Downtime: Recovery from PDO Threads Treatment is usually quick, with minimal downtime required. Many patients can return to their regular activities shortly after the procedure.
  6. Versatility: PDO Threads can address various skin concerns, including fine lines, loose skin, sagging jawline, and more. They can be applied to different face and neck areas, offering a tailored approach to skin rejuvenation.
  7. Combination with Other Treatments: PDO Threads Treatment can be combined with other cosmetic procedures, allowing for a comprehensive and customized skincare plan.
  8. Long-lasting Effects: While the immediate lifting is a significant advantage, collagen stimulation ensures that the skin improves in appearance over time, providing long-lasting results.
  9. Non-Surgical: As a non-surgical treatment, PDO Threads offer a less intimidating option for those hesitant about undergoing surgery. This makes it accessible to a broader range of individuals seeking skin enhancement.
  10. FDA Approved: PDO Threads is FDA-approved, adding an extra layer of assurance regarding the treatment’s safety and efficacy.

The Treatment Process

The treatment process for PDO Threads is a carefully orchestrated procedure that combines medical expertise with aesthetic understanding. Here’s a step-by-step breakdown of what the process typically entails:

  1. Consultation and Evaluation: Before the treatment begins, a thorough consultation is conducted to evaluate the patient’s skin and discuss their concerns and goals. This helps determine whether smooth threads or barbed threads would be more efficient and plan the treatment accordingly.
  2. Preparation: The treatment area is cleaned, and a topical anesthetic may be applied to minimize discomfort during the procedure.
  3. Thread Selection: Different types of PDO Threads may be used depending on the desired outcome. Smooth threads are often chosen for collagen stimulation, while barbed threads provide a more pronounced lifting effect.
  4. Thread Insertion: Using a fine needle or cannula, the threads are inserted into the subcutaneous layer of the skin. The lines are strategically placed to support and lift the sagging tissues.

Aftercare Instructions

The success of PDO Threads Treatment continues after the procedure itself. Proper aftercare is critical to guarantee optimal healing, minimize possible side effects, and maximize the longevity of the results. Here are the typical aftercare instructions that patients may be advised to follow:

For 24 Hours After Treatment:

  • Avoid Touching: Refrain from rubbing, touching, or massaging the treated areas to decrease the risk of movement of threads.
  • Avoid Exercise and Alcohol: Heavy exercise, increasing heart rate, or sweating should be avoided, as well as alcoholic beverages.
  • Avoid Sleeping on Treated Areas: Laying on or sleeping on the treated areas might cause displacement of the threads.
  • Avoid Skincare Products and Makeup: Keeping the treated area clean and free from products can help heal.
  • Use a Cool Compress: A cool compress can help with discomfort and reduce swelling.

For Up to 2 Weeks After Treatment:

  • Avoid Facial Treatments: Facials, microdermabrasion, etc., should be avoided to prevent any interference with the healing process.

For Up to 4 Weeks After Treatment:

  • Avoid Exaggerated Facial Expressions: Exaggerated facial expressions, prolonged chewing, and wide yawning should be avoided.
  • Avoid Dental Work: Includes cleanings and dental procedures to prevent potential complications with the treated areas.


  • Call the Office if Needed: If threads are poking out from the skin or concerns like swelling, redness, or warmth, contacting the provider is essential.
  • Make a Follow-up Appointment: A follow-up appointment can help assess the results and address any questions or concerns.
  • Follow Specific Instructions: Providers may give individualized instructions tailored to the patient’s treatment and needs.
