PDO Threads

PDO Threads

SkinFX Medical Spa offers PDO Threads in Pasadena, CA as an alternative to a surgical face lift. PDO threads stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. They lift the loose and sagging muscles and tissues of the face improving the overall texture of the skin. It also helps in slimming the jawline, tightening it and giving a more subtle and contoured look. The skin becomes tighter, firmer and thicker as the results of the PDO thread start to surface.

PDO Threads are a great alternative to a surgical face/neck lift. If you are experiencing saggy jowls or loose skin around your neck and ears then a thread lift might be the perfect option for you to see a temporary lift while stimulating collagen production for longer-lasting results in time.


PDO Threads have become a popular option for non-surgical lifts. This procedure, results in a visible lift in the cheeks and smile lines. This gives patients a more refreshed look.


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 neocollagenesis (the production of new collagen in the skin). It also stimulates elastin and hyaluronic acid, both substances are key to maintaining firm, youthful looking skin.

A tiny entry is made and the threads are inserted via a cannula along the marked contours and are attached to the tissue. Once the threads are in place, the body produces new collagen around the thread, which helps to create a subtle and natural-looking lifting effect.

PDO thread face lifts are suitable for both men and women who are experiencing mild sagging, loose or excess skin. If you are looking for a minimally invasive, relatively comfortable treatment that can help restore your natural facial structure and tighten the skin then this could be a great solution.

Thread face lift results often vary from patient to patient, but typically last from 12-18 months. It is possible to have the treatment again once the previous threads are fully dissolved.

Threads used in a PDO thread lift are typically made from polydioxanone, a biodegradable material used for medical stitches which dissolves naturally within the body. The threads are generally fully dissolved 9 months following your treatment, while they help stimulate collagen production.
