Thread lifts are done with Polydioxanone (PDO) thread – a synthetic absorbable monofilament thread commonly used surgeries and sutures for over a decade. FDA-approved, PDO thread normally dissolves by itself within 6-8 months. During a thread lift, ultra-fine PDO threads are implanted into the sub-dermal skin to provide support in areas where sagging is observed. The PDO implants also stimulate the production of collagen, thus enhancing the overall skin quality. Results typically last 12-18 months.
