PDO Thread Lifts in Scottsdale, Arizona

Are you concerned about your fine lines and wrinkles on your face? PDO thread lifts are a great way to improve your appearance without facelift surgery. This revolutionary procedure has become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason.

What are PDO Thread Lifts?

PDO Thread Lifts are an advanced, minimally-invasive treatment option for areas on the face that have lost elasticity and volume due to aging. This innovative treatment uses polydioxanone (PDO) threads, absorbable sutures typically used in surgical procedures. PDO Threads are inserted into the skin, providing immediate volume and lift and stimulating collagen production for long-term skin tightening in the targeted area. Thread lifts are commonly used with other anti-aging procedures such as dermal fillers, and botox.


PDO Threads provide several benefits, including:

  • Immediate Volume and Lift: PDO threads instantly add volume to the area they are inserted into. This helps to reduce signs of aging and create a more youthful appearance.
  • Long-Term Rejuvenation and Skin Tightening: The body produces collagen and fibroblasts around the PDO threads. This helps to create an ongoing tightening effect in the treatment area.
  • Non-Surgical Facelift: Because PDO Threads are minimally-invasive, they require no downtime and leave minimal scarring. In addition, treatments typically take less than one hour.

Side Effects

The most common side effects of PDO Threads include the following:

  • Temporary bruising
  • Redness and swelling in the treated area
  • Mild discomfort

Types of PDO Threads

Three main types of PDO threads are used, including smooth threads, barbed threads, and mesh threads. 

Smooth Threads

Smooth threads are the most common type of PDO thread used. They are made from a single strand of absorbable suture material and can lift sagging skin in areas such as the cheeks and jawline.

Barbed Threads

Barbed threads are composed of multiple barbs along the length of the thread. These barbs help to provide more lift and tightening in the treatment area, making them ideal for areas with severe sagging or elasticity loss.

Mesh Threads

Mesh threads are made from multiple strands of PDO suture material twisted together. This creates a helical structure that provides extra lift and tightening in the treatment area.

Post-Treatment Care

After the treatment, following your physician’s instructions for post-treatment care is important. This will help ensure you get the best results from your PDO Threads treatment. Generally, this includes avoiding strenuous activity and exposure to direct sunlight for at least 48 hours after the procedure.

Which Type of PDO Threads is Best?

The best type of PDO Threads for you will depend on your desired results, the treatment area, and your physician’s recommendation. Your physician can help you decide which type of thread will be most beneficial to achieve your aesthetic goals.
