PDO Thread Lifts correct neck and face sagging to lift the brow and jawline

PDO Threading

Correct neck and face sagging. Reshape your nose.

Polydioxanone (PDO) is the same type of biocompatible and bioabsorbable material used in surgical sutures. During a PDO Thread Lift treatment, Deb Mauro-Bender, DNAP, CRNA makes tiny entries with very fine PDO threads into the area that needs to be lifted, like the jaw line, brow or nose.


Strategic placement of the threads in the superficial tissue of the skin makes it possible to lift and tighten skin without any surgery or anesthesia.

What is PDO Threading?

PDO Threading, also referred to as a PDO Thread Lift, is a non-surgical procedure that lifts and tightens sagging skin tissue, using threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO). Lift, improve skin texture, fine lines and elasticity and tighten.


Threads introduces them into the deeper layers of the skin. Once introduced, the threads produce 3 effects in the skin:​

Instant Skin Lifting

  • Via mechanical effects

Cellular Renewel

  • Collagen stimulation

  • Neovascularisation

Skin Tightening

  • Contracting fat tissue

How Does It Work?

Lift sagging skin on face, neck, jawline nose and brow.

There are different types of PDO Threads, some are smooth, some twisted, and some have barbs for lifting. The threading techniques all can increase collagen formation and volumize the tissues while tightening the skin through formation of fibrous tissue around the threads. The barbed sutures can lift and also do all the above, and the effects can be enhanced by combining the different threads in a mesh type fashion.

Once the threads are situated in the skin, new bundles of collagen naturally form around each thread. This means that once the threads dissolve in six to eight months, the skin remains tight and healthy thanks to the presence of so much new collagen. We know exactly how to place the threads in your skin to help you look refreshed, rejuvenated, and years younger.

PDO Threading For The Nose

Change the shape of your nose with non-surgical thread lifting.

PDO Threading offers an alternative to a traditional surgical nose job. PDO threads can be used to lift the nose bridge, smooth nose humps and subtly reshape the nose tip. It can also be combined with fillers to further refine your shape.

When you receive a nose lift with PDO threads, you'll receive a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area. Next up, Dr. Deb will insert threads horizontally into the bridge of the nose and vertically into the nasal tip. The threads have small barbed structures that act as framing supports that help contour and shape the nose. 

Results are immediately noticeable! They will continue to improve as new collagen and connective tissue form.

Frequently Asked Questions About PDO Threading

Who should have a PDO Thread Lift?

If you have mild problems of facial sagging, the PDO Threading can lift and improve the appearance of a sagging neck, jowls, sagging cheeks and droopy eyebrows. Remember, PDO Threading is only one part of facial rejuvenation and you may need a combination of procedures to give you the best results. We want you to be happy with your results, and combining procedures is the best route to your satisfaction.

What is a PDO Threading treament like?

Only an office visit is needed to do the PDO Thread Lift. Small threads are inserted into your facial skin in strategic areas, depending on the need for lifting versus stimulation of collagen and tightening. A local anesthetic in a few strategic areas may be necessary, but many people do the procedure without any anesthesia. After the needles with the threads are inserted, the needles are withdrawn and the threads remain to work their magic. The procedure is often completed in 30 minutes or less.

Is PDO Threading permanent?

PDO Threads are made of an absorbable material that has been used for years in other parts of the body. There has never been a problem with use of this material over the years it has been used. Rarely are there any allergic reactions to the material. The sutures dissolve over the next 6 months leaving no residual material present since they are broken down by a process called hydrolysis (they turn into water!). The new collagen and fibrous tissue that had formed around the sutures then continue to hold the skin up and tighten the skin.

What are side effects associated with PDO Threading?

Minor side effects are rare, and may include infection, bruising, swelling, tenderness, numbness, and slight asymmetry. Occasionally a suture can show itself just below the skin. Most of these potential problems resolve over the following weeks to months after the procedure.

Is there any downtime with a PDO Thread Lift?

Most people can return back to normal activities the next day. Mild swelling and bruising can happen and cover-up make up may be necessary for a few days to weeks. Strenuous exercise is not recommended since straining right after the procedure may move the threads.

Who is not a good candidate for a nose lift?

A PDO threading nose lift is not the right choice for those who want to significantly reduce the size of the size of their nose or have major nasal deformities. Also, this treatment will not improve breathing issues associated with a deviated septum because it is superficial. Only the external cosmetic appearance is affected by PDO threading – not the breathing passages.
