PDO Thread Lift – 5 Things It Can Do For You & Your Skin
Everyone wants firmer, smoother, wrinkle-free skin. But what if your signs of ageing are beyond the limits of creams, lotions and potions? You might think that surgery is your only answer, but a PDO thread lift can give you a tighter, firmer and smoother appearance – without going under the knife.
What Is A PDO Thread Lift?
A PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that can give you a more youthful appearance without the need for surgery.
Often used as an alternative to surgical facelifts, the PDO thread lift requires no cutting or slicing. No general anaesthetic and no downtime for recovery.
Instead, an aesthetic doctor applies a local anaesthetic and carefully inserts a fine PDO thread into the skin, weaving it around the areas you wish to treat. This PDO thread is then pulled, to lift and tighten the skin, giving you a firmer, smoother and younger look.
Not only does the PDO thread lift pull the skin taut on your face or neck, but it has the added benefit of actually stimulating collagen production and skin regeneration. Helping to reverse the signs of ageing from the inside out.
Why PDO Threads?
There are different types of threads that can be used in a thread lift, but here at Elite Aesthetics, we believe that PDO threads are the way to go.
PDO stands for polydioxanone which is an absorbable polymer that offers the best combination of strength and flexibility, as well as being naturally broken down by the body over time. This means there’s no need for a removal procedure later on.
PDO threads are medical-grade threads that have been used for other purposes for many decades, giving them a long track record for safety and efficacy. They are thinner than hair and made of a type of protein.
Research shows that PDO can help to relax your muscles, improve blood flow, stimulate the production of elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid. All key substances involved in creating firm, young skin.
What Can A PDO Thread Lift Do For You?
So a PDO thread lift is safe, long-lasting and very effective. But what can it do for you?
1: Tighten Loose, Sagging Skin
Loose, sagging skin on your neck or face can have a significant impact on how old you look.
In a PDO thread lift, fine threads are woven into the skin around the neck or face, then pulled tight to lift the skin and contour the face. Much like in a surgical facelift, the skin is pulled taut giving you a firmer, lifted appearance.

2: Smooth Wrinkles & Fine Lines
From fine lines to deep creases, wrinkles can be very frustrating and have a significant impact on your appearance. A PDO thread lift can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, giving you smoother skin and a more youthful look.
The PDO thread lift helps in two ways: the “lifting” created by pulling the threads, helps smooth the wrinkles and pull the skin taut, while the PDO threads themselves help to stimulate collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. This allows your body to create stronger, less-wrinkled skin from the inside out.
3: Eliminate “Turtle” Neck
Struggling with a sagging neck? A PDO thread lift could be the answer. Saggy skin or a droopy chin can impact the contour of your face and make you feel self-conscious. With a PDO thread lift, we can lift the skin under your chin, from your neck and give your face the smooth, contoured appearance you desire.
By weaving the threads around your chin and neck area, we can create a similar result to that of a surgical procedure, but without the need for slicing, cutting or a general anaesthetic.
4: Lift The Jowls & Cheeks
Saggy cheeks or jowls can make you look older than you really are. In previous years the only solution would have been surgery, but now a PDO thread lift can offer you a non-surgical solution.
By strategically inserting the PDO threads into certain areas of your face, your aesthetic doctor will be able to lift and firm your cheeks and contour your jowls, to give you a firmer, younger look.
5: Stimulate Collagen Production
As you age, and especially as you go through the menopause or andropause (male menopause), your body’s ability to produce collagen reduces. Collagen is essentially the building blocks that give your skin its structure. It provides the strength and elasticity your skin needs to stay smooth, firm and youthful.
Surgical facelifts can pull the skin tight and remove sagging or drooping, but it can’t stimulate regeneration of firmer, younger skin. However, A PDO thread lift can. Research shows that PDO thread encourages your body to produce more collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, which in turn, creates healthier, smoother and stronger skin.
