PDO Threading Q & A

What is PDO threading?

PDO threading is a popular alternative to facelift surgery. It immediately lifts aged, saggy skin to restore contour and shape.

Dr. Darush uses polydioxanone (PDO) material to pull drooping skin up and back into position. Polydioxanone is similar to medical sutures, in that it dissolves over time.

While the PDO threads are in place, your body amps up collagen and elastin production and firms and tightens your skin in that area. The threads work diligently under your skin, smoothing out creases, fine lines, and established wrinkles.

Who is a candidate for PDO threading?

The so-called lunchtime facelift is a quick and effective treatment for men and women of any age or skin type. Best used for clients with issues that affect the lower portion of their face, PDO threading is perfect for lifting skin that sags around your jowls and neck.

What happens in a PDO threading procedure?

At NewSkin Laser Clinic, Dr. Darush or Nurse Singh oversee your threading experience. First, to make you completely comfortable, they administer a local anesthetic.

Using a special device, the threads are gently inserted under your skin in the predetermined treatment areas in your neck, jaw, or cheeks.

When Dr. Darush or Nurse Singh complete the 30-minute procedure, you may be red and slightly swollen, but you won’t need stitches or band-aids.

Does PDO threading cause side effects?

For a day or so after the PDO thread treatment, you may experience redness, minor swelling, and a bit of pain. However, it’s not severe and will subside in a day or two.

You can return to your daily routine on the same day you have a PDO threading session.

What results can I expect after PDO threading?


PDO threading is a commonly requested procedure because it’s fast, non-invasive, and the results are evident almost immediately.

Better yet, your skin will continue to improve over the course of weeks, months, and even years to come as collagen production near the threads ramps up.

If a lunchtime lift sounds right for you, consider PDO threading. Call for a complimentary consultation or schedule an appointment online.
