Non Surgical Facelift / PDO threads

Non surgical facelift / PDO threads or PDO (polydioxanone) threads are a type of absorbable suture used in a cosmetic procedure known as thread lifting. This minimally invasive technique aims to lift and tighten sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production. The threads, which dissolve over time, are inserted under the skin using fine needles without the need for surgical incisions.

Benefits of PDO Threads

  1. Immediate Results: A lifting effect is visible immediately after the procedure. Although results can vary, they typically improve over time as collagen production increases.

  2. Non-Surgical: PDO thread lifting is non-invasive compared to traditional facelift surgery, it comes with fewer risks and a quicker recovery period.

  3. Collagen Stimulation: The threads stimulate collagen production in the skin, which improves skin elasticity, texture, and overall appearance.

  4. Versatility:  used in various parts of the face and body, including the neck, cheeks, jowls, and eyebrows.

  5. Minimal Downtime: Recovery from a PDO thread procedure typically requires minimal downtime, allowing patients to return to daily activities relatively quickly.

Side Effects

Non surgical facelift / PDO threads treatments are generally safe, rarely  can cause side effects such as swelling, bruising, and redness at the insertion sites. There is also a risk of more severe complications like infection,  & thread migration although  less common.


Proper aftercare is crucial to maximize the benefits of a PDO thread lift and minimize potential side effects. Here are some general aftercare tips:

  • Avoid Strenuous Activities: Patients should avoid heavy exercise and strenuous activities for about 2-3 weeks to prevent misalignment of the threads.

  • Gentle Skincare: Be gentle when washing or touching the face for the first few days to avoid dislodging the threads.

  • Sleeping Position: recommended to sleep on your back to avoid putting pressure on the face.

  • Avoid Excessive Facial Movements: Limiting movements such as excessive chewing, yawning, or smiling can help maintain the integrity of the threads during the initial healing period.

  • Follow-Up Visits: Attend all scheduled follow-up visits so your practitioner can monitor your healing and the condition of the threads.

Adhering to the guidelines can help ensure a smooth recovery and effective results from  a Non surgical facelift / PDO threads procedure.
