About PDO Threads

What are PDO Threads?

PDO threads, or polydioxanone threads, are a type of medical aesthetic treatment used for nonsurgical skin lifting and tightening. These threads are made of a biocompatible synthetic polymer called polydioxanone, which has a long history of safe use in various medical applications, including surgery.

PDO threads work by mechanically lifting and tightening sagging skin tissues. The threads are inserted into the skin using a thin needle or cannula, and they create a support structure that helps lift and tighten the skin. Over time, the threads stimulate collagen production, further enhancing the skin’s firmness and elasticity.


A thread lift is sometimes called a non-surgical facelift, so its purpose is pretty clear; the primary goal of a PDO thread lift is to lift the skin into a higher, tighter, more youthful position. As it is, a thread lift can treat a variety of age-related skin concerns, such as:

  • Lax or sagging skin
  • Nasolabial lines
  • Expression lines
  • Hollowness in the cheeks
  • Loose jowls

What to expect

How long will results last?

The long-lasting benefit threads provide is why many patients prefer a thread lift over dermal filler. PDO threads address the whole face, provide more lift, tighten the skin and can last between 12 to 18 months. The next myth explains their expiration date a little more in-depth.

Are there any side effects?

PDO (polydioxanone) thread treatments, like any medical procedure, can be associated with potential side effects. It’s important for individuals considering PDO threads to be aware of these side effects and discuss them with a qualified practitioner during the consultation. While many people tolerate PDO threads well, individual responses can vary. Some Common Side effects are bruising, swelling, tenderness or soreness, redness, puckering or dimpling and itching or tingling.
