Younger skin, snatched foxy eyes, chiseled jawline — is there anything lifting threads can’t do? Minimally invasive and FDA-cleared, PDO threads are a game-changer in facial sculpting and rejuvenation. They are not only effective for lifting sagging skin; threads also spur collagen production around the treated area to keep tightening and nourishing your skin for months to come.
What Are Lifting Threads?
PDO threads are thin, biodegradable sutures made from polydioxanone, a flexible and absorbable polymer that anchors and elevates facial tissue to create a lifted appearance.
Threads come in a variety of textures; mono, screw, and cog threads. Mono threads are smooth and thin, providing a subtle lift to the face. Screw threads add volume to the treated area by using 1-2 intertwined threads. And cog threads, which are the most popular choice for achieving those supermodel fox eyes, have a barbed texture to create better traction and promote collagen production.
This non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure is a great alternative to the traditional [facelift] or [brow lift], which involves making incisions along the hairline or behind the ears to reposition skin tissues. Lifting threads can be applied almost anywhere in the body for a firmer appearance, though the most popular treatment areas are the brows, cheeks, and jawline.

As Seen On
If you are considering getting a thread lift at Dr. Patty Miami, the first step is to schedule a consultation at our high-end cosmetic and surgical boutique to discuss your cosmetic goals with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon.
At this one-on-one appointment, you’ll discuss your aesthetic goals and concerns to determine the most appropriate course of action. You’ll also get to explore our elite menu of surgical and non-surgical retouches, including [dermal fillers], [Botox], [non-surgical BBL], and more for the ultimate glow-up.
The thread lift is designed to gently lift skin and fatty tissue by inserting dissolvable PDO threads that anchor and suspend sagging areas. Before treatment, your provider will mark the treatment areas and the direction of the inserted threads. Once you are happy with the positioning, a numbing cream will be applied to ensure you don’t feel a thing during the procedure.
Threads are inserted using a blunt-ended cannula to minimize trauma and damage to surrounding tissues. Once the entire area is nice and numb, the cannula is gently pushed through the tissue beneath the skin.
Multiple threads can be insured through the same injection point. When the thread reaches its intended point, the cannula will be removed and the process will be repeated until the desired lifting effect is achieved. Finally, your provider will massage the threads to ensure they blend with the tissue and to avoid dimpling or rippling.
Recovery is minimal after a PDO thread lifting. While bruising and swelling is common with all cosmetic procedures — and thread lifting is not the exception — you can expect to go back to your regular activities within 24 hours of the procedure. Do not wash or touch your face for 12 hours and avoid wearing makeup for 24-48 hours to prevent infection.
Ice packs and arnica gel can help expedite the healing process. Avoid laser treatments on treated areas for 2 months, since the light emitted can dissolve the threads faster than they are intended to. Steer clear of extreme temperatures, like saunas and hot yoga, for 3-4 weeks following treatment. The treatment area will continue healing over the next couple of weeks and your results will keep improving over the next few months.
Thread Lift FAQs
Is The Thread Lift Procedure Safe?
Yes, PDO threads have been cleared by the FDA for both safety and efficiency. Like any minimally-invasive aesthetic facial procedure, there are risks associated, including infection, visible sutures, hematoma, and snapping of threads.
Does It Hurt?
During treatment, the areas will be anesthetized to ensure you don’t feel anything. However, once the area wakes up from the numbing solution, you may experience mild discomfort and pressure. Applying ice to the treated areas can help manage pain and inflammation.
Are PDO Threads Permanent?
No, the thread lifting procedure is not permanent. As with any cosmetic treatment, results will vary depending on how fast your body metabolizes the material and other lifestyle factors. Threads last anywhere from 3 to 18 months, depending on the area in which they were placed and how they were applied.
