Get the look of a face lift without going under the knife! PDO thread lifts are absorbable sutures which are safe and minimally invasive procedures that use up to four types of threads: “barbs”, “hooks”, “monos”, and “screws”. Each type is designed for your specific needs. Barbs and hooks are used to lift the skin, while monos and screws are used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, including under the eye and the nasolabial folds. Once inserted into the subdermal layer of the skin, the threads provide an instant “lift” of the surrounding skin, and stimulate endogenous collagen production to improve skin texture, fine lines and the function of elastin, the main protein constituent of elastic connective tissue in skin.

*All Thread Lift procedures require a free consultation with our Registered Nurse-Esthetician*
This procedure typically begins with local anesthetic used to help avoid discomfort if requested followed by the insertion of the absorbable threads by the nurse-esthetician. Lifting is instantly observable, although optimal results are usually seen 2-3 weeks after the treatment. Threads will dissolve within 3-6 months, depending on the type of threads used, but neocollagenesis can continue for up to 18 months after the procedure!
