Many people look for a minimally invasive procedure that provides multiple benefits for their skin. A good example of this is PDO threads (polydioxanone threads), which are safe, absorbable, and self-dissolving synthetic polymer used to perform various cosmetic procedures. Although the threads are most commonly used on the face and neck, they can also be used on other regions of the body.
So what are the benefits of getting PDO threads? The benefits of receiving PDO thread lifts include skin tightening, skin rejuvenation, and skin lifting. They’re non-surgical and minimally invasive, where the threads are inserted in the skin and anchored to provide support and stimulate collagen production. PDO threads are a good alternative to surgical procedures for skin tightening and lifting.

PDO threads will most definitely do your skin a world of good. Most people get PDO thread lifts to address concerns such as dull, old, or sagging skin. PDO thread lift benefits include skin rejuvenation, skin tightening, and skin lifting.
Skin rejuvenation mainly refers to triggering and boosting collagen production. PDO threads stimulate the body to produce more collagen in the damaged areas, producing a better environment for the skin to repair and renew, resulting in new, healthier, and more elastic skin. PDO mono is a type of thread that’s barbless and smooth and is used mainly for this purpose.
Skin tightening and skin lifting refer to the effect of PDO threads on dull sagging skin. Insertion of PDO threads into the loose skin and securing it to anchor points results in a tighter anti-aging look. They provide contouring of the face, resulting in fewer wrinkles and more youthful-looking skin.
Skin lifts are intended to raise the tissue physically to prevent sagging skin. PDO cogs or PDO screws are types of barbed PDO threads used mainly for skin tightening and lifting. PDO mono threads aren’t ideal for this since they’re put superficially under the skin and are hairless and smooth. They can give minor firming and lifting to improve skin elasticity, but they can’t lift skin tissue as effectively as PDO cogs or PDO screws.
Collagen production slows down as we get older, and facial volume decreases, contributing to wrinkles, sagging, and other indications of aging. This procedure can help smoothen skin, tighten sagging areas, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds on the face.
PDO thread lifts don’t require large incisions on the skin. More aggressive facelifts require larger incisions and deeper sutures that have the risk of leaving scars on your skin. PDO threads are inserted with tiny holes on the skin and can be adjusted without opening up the surface of the skin.
The threads are also absorbable and self-dissolving. This means that there’s no need for another session to remove sutures. While it can feel different in the beginning, the threads dissolve within the skin over time with no risks of infection.
PDO threads are called a lunch-time lift because the procedure can be done in as fast as 45 minutes. In addition, results can be observed right after the treatment. Physical skin lifting and tightening can immediately be observed.
There’s little to no downtime for PDO thread lifts. Generally, this minimally invasive procedure doesn’t require much aftercare to see the best results. You can go back to your normal activities as soon as the procedure is done. However, some people with sensitive skin can experience mild redness, or skin irritation, which should subside on its own.
PDO threading is generally a painless procedure. But if you feel that you need some, your injector can use a local anesthetic, numbing lotion, or ice packs to make you more comfortable with the procedure.
The skin tightening and lifting effect can be observed right away. Skin rejuvenation and the increased production of collagen take place gradually and its full effects can be observed in 6 months time.
Patients' results vary, but most are pleased with their new appearance for up to 18 to 24 months. To continue the effects of PDO thread lifts, booking an extra session to touch up your thread lifts can help maintain and prolong the effects.
The benefits of PDO threads are skin rejuvenation, skin tightening, and skin lifts. Instant results are from the physical adjustment of the skin, but the stimulation of collagen production further enhances the amazing effects of PDO thread lifts.
