PDO Threads Beverly Hills

PDO threads are absorbable sutures placed into the dermal tissue and pulled upward to produce a lifting effect similar to a mini-facelift. The threads also stimulate collagen production to rejuvenate the skin at a cellular level, creating natural, long-lasting results without anesthesia or downtime.

Under the expert guidance of board-certified plastic surgeon, Spa26 offers a wide variety of non-surgical aesthetic services, including injectables, body contouring, lasers, and skin tightening treatments. Our one-stop medical spa focuses on natural results that meet the cosmetic goals of all our patients.

Thread Lift Procedure

What are PDO Threads?

PDO threads are medical-grade, dissolvable sutures that lift and reposition sagging skin and tissue. The threads anchor to the dermal tissue, which offers immediate improvement. Over time, the threads dissolve and stimulate collagen production to rejuvenate the skin naturally and extend results.

Surgical threads have been used extensively for decades for cosmetic and medical purposes, including open-heart surgery. PDO threads are FDA-approved and have a long track record of safety and efficacy.

This treatment addresses skin and tissue that migrates downward over time due to the effects of gravity and aging. The result can lead to sagging skin, facial hollowing, loss of definition in the midface, and early jowl formation. Strategically placed threads can address these concerns, creating a more youthful facial contour and smoother, firmer skin.

PDO Threads Benefits

PDO threads are quick and require no significant downtime, allowing you to rejuvenate your appearance without disrupting your daily routine. Threads can also be combined with dermal fillers, decreasing the amount of filler needed to produce the desired result. These threads also offer a variety of anti-aging and rejuvenation benefits in a single procedure.

What Results to Expect:

  • Smoother, firmer skin
  • Restored definition to the cheekbones
  • Reduction in early jowl formation
  • Improvement in some facial wrinkles
  • Enhanced jawline contour

How Long Will Results Last?

PDO threads offer improvement that lasts 6-12 months for most patients. You can optimize your results by using daily sun protection and medical-grade skincare products at home. An annual thread lift allows you to enjoy your lifted appearance much longer.

Most patients return to regular activities immediately following their appointment.

  • Once the treatment area is numb, we will gently insert the threads via a blunt-tip microcannula.
  • We place the threads into the tissue precisely to produce an optimal outcome.
  • The entire procedure takes 60-90 minutes, including numbing.

Aftercare & Recovery

  • You will be able to drive yourself home after your treatment.
  • Patients typically resume activities the same day or the next day.
  • You may experience mild swelling and bruising around the entry points.

How much does PDO threading cost?

Do PDO threads actually work?

Multiple studies indicate that PDO threads offer immediate improvements in mild-to-moderate skin sagging. Improvements increase over time as collagen levels rise. Results are temporary, and patients must repeat treatment to maintain the lifted appearance.

What is a PDO thread?

A PDO thread is a medical-grade, absorbable suture with barbs that anchors to the dermal tissue and causes a lifting effect when pulled upwards. As the sutures dissolve over time, they stimulate the body to produce more collagen to extend the procedure results.

Is a thread lift worth it?

PDO threads can offer an immediate improvement in sagging for patients with mild-to-moderate skin laxity. Results continue for many weeks after the procedure as collagen levels increase.

Are PDO threads better than filler?

PDO threads and filler are very different types of treatments. One advantage to PDO threads is that they provide a subtle volume boost, while filler can create an overdone appearance when they are not administered correctly. PDO threads can also be combined with filler, which requires less filler to produce the desired effect than if filler was used alone.
