PDO Thread Lift Q & A


What is a PDO thread lift?

A PDO thread lift is a nonsurgical facelift that produces immediate and long-lasting results. Dr. Yuabova uses a small needle to guide polydioxanone (PDO) thread under your skin. The number of threads she uses depends on the areas of your face you want lifted.

Immediate results

The threads gently grab onto the underside of your skin, allowing Dr. Yuabova to use them to lift and tighten that section of your face. As soon as she finishes, you can immediately see the difference.

Long-lasting results

The invisible threads stay in place under your skin, where they trigger collagen production. The threads dissolve in about 4-6 months, but your skin keeps making extra collagen as long as they're in place.

The boost of collagen strengthens and tightens the lifted skin, creating results that last after the thread disappears. Depending on the thread used, your nonsurgical lift can last from 1-3 years.

What cosmetic problems does a PDO thread lift treat?

Dr. Yuabova strategically places the PDO threads in problem areas. For example, she may use the thread in the corner of your eyes to smooth away crow's feet. She can lift and tighten your jowls, neck, cheeks, and eyebrows with this technique.

The natural-looking changes you can achieve with a PDO thread lift include:

  • Eliminating sagging skin
  • Softening fine lines and wrinkles
  • Lifting your eyebrows
  • Recontouring your eyes
  • Highlighting your cheekbone
  • Reducing jowls
  • Defining your jawline
  • Smoothing neck lines

Your results may improve in the weeks after your procedure as collagen production strengthens the lifted areas.

What happens during a PDO thread lift procedure?

During your consultation, Dr. Yuabova examines your skin, talks with you about the results you want to achieve, and determines if a PDO thread lift is the best choice for your cosmetic goals.

Dr. Yuabova applies a local anesthetic to numb the area and ensure your comfort during the procedure; then, she carefully inserts the threads. The process takes 30-45 minutes.

Depending on how many facial areas Dr. Yuabova treats, you may have mild swelling, redness, or bruising. Most people return to their normal daily routine after the procedure, but your provider may ask you to avoid strenuous activities for a short time.
