What Is PDO Thread Lift?
A polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift is a minimally invasive skin tightening procedure that uses a dissolvable substance to literally stitch your skin more tightly together. This procedure is highly effective at controlling the contour of the face and enhancing the skin's supple shape. Performed under the care of accomplished medical director Dr. Myriam Yokana, this procedure is one of Modern Day MedSpa's most sought-after aesthetic treatment options.

How Does A PDO Thread Lift Procedure Work?
Polydioxanone, or PDO, is one of several types of synthetic thread that dissolves naturally beneath the skin. Because of this, it can safely be used by a skilled and qualified medical practitioner to stitch the skin more tightly together. Of all thread types used for these procedures, PDO has the longest history in the medical community, making it the material of choice at Modern Day MedSpa. The sutures created by the threading procedure will dissolve after about six months, during which time they will stimulate the skin's natural healing response and generate collagen production. When applied correctly, this will provide the skin a rejuvenated look in targeted areas.
PDO Thread Lift FAQ
Is a PDO thread lift painful?
No, the majority of patients don't experience any discomfort during a PDO thread lift procedure. Before we begin, Dr. Yokana, or a member of her team, will use an anesthetic to numb the treatment area, ensuring you remain comfortable during the entire procedure. After the PDO thread lift is finished, some patients may experience minor redness, soreness, or swelling, but this typically subsides after 24 – 72 hours.
How long does it take to get a PDO thread lift?
A PDO thread lift procedure only takes about 45 minutes on average.
How soon will I see results from my PDO thread lift?
Many patients can notice results almost immediately; however, most typically begin to see noticeable results within 2 – 4 weeks that continue to improve as the PDO threads stimulate the production of collagen in the skin.
How long will the results from a smooth PDO thread lift last?
On average, the results from a PDO thread lift can last up to 18 months or longer in some cases.
