WHAT ARE PDO THREADS?
Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are a special medical grade thread that is thinner than hair, made of protein. Research has confirmed that PDO relaxes tendons and muscles, whilst a foreign body reaction improves the blood flow to the area stimulating the production of new collagen in the skin.
HOW DO PDO THREADS WORK?
Dissolvable PDO (Polydioxanone) threads are safely inserted underneath the skin and are then tightened and pulled back, re-suspending areas that are sagging. This gives the skin a lifted, boosted and rejuvenated appearance.
HOW MUCH DO PDO THREADS COST?
PDO Threads are priced by the thread and range from $70 to $400 each. The total cost of your PDO Thread treatment depends upon the type of thread being used and the number of threads needed to get you the results you desire. Contact us today for a PDO Threads consultation!

About PDO Threads
Thread lifts are a procedure that uses dissolvable sutures to tighten and lift the skin. The polydioxanone (PDO) thread is one type of two common types in this field - it has been proven effective for rejuvenating your complexion while some newer procedures provide better results when lifting saggy muscles, such as with polycaprolactone (PCA) or polylactic acid (PLA) threads.
PDO threads have been around the longest of the three and have been used in surgeries since the 1980s. They’re made from a colorless polyester that breaks down in your body after about 6 months.
PDO threads can be further divided into three categories:
- PDO mono threads - Smooth sutures that help rejuvenate your skin by stimulating collagen production.
- PDO cog threads - These threads have barbs that latch into your skin like small fishhooks, to provide support and lift parts of your face.
- PDO screw threads - Made up of one or two intertwined threads, these are used to help restore volume to sunken parts of your skin.
