PDO Threading Procedures


Polydioxanone thread, also known as PDO Thread, is a synthetic absorbable surgical suture that has been shown to be one of the safest materials to be inserted into the body. PDO Threads are utilized at Saintly Skin to temporarily enhance the appearance of treated areas.

What is a PDO Thread lift and how does it work?

The PDO threading procedure involves inserting PDO dissolving threads deeply beneath the skin’s surface using acupuncture needles of varying lengths. These wires are strategically placed within the dermis, where they serve as a framework for lifting and tightening sagging skin. Polydioxanone, the material from which these threads are made, is a safe substance that keeps the skin in its newly tightened state for 4-6 months and stimulates the production of new collagen. The lasting result will provide the skin with a refreshed, well-rested, and firmer appearance while promoting the formation of new collagen for long-lasting effects.

This treatment can be used not only on the face, but also in other areas of the body where creating a lift is more important than restoring volume.

What are the benefits of PDO Threading procedures?

  • A reduction in appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
  • Younger looking skin, with fewer signs of aging due to tightening of loose/lax skin
  • Improve skin tone, texture, pigmentation, scarring and stretch mark appearance
  • Long lasting results, due to new collagen synthesis
  • No scars or visible cuts (as can be the result of a traditional facelift)
  • Can be performed from the age of 30, or earlier for anti-aging benefits
  • Increased skin metabolism
  • Optimization of texture
  • Activation of the lymphatic circulation

What is the recovery time for a PDO Threading procedure?

Patients may immediately resume their normal activities following the procedure, but they should consult with their doctors before engaging in intense exercise or other strenuous activities.

Are there any risks or side effects associated with PDO Threads?

Although minimal, potential side effects may include bruising, dimples, and swelling.

How long do PDO Threading results last?

After the procedure, patients will see immediate results that can last up to a year.
