PDO Threads

Book Now

A non-surgical alternative to facelifts

PDO threads use dissolvable sutures to reposition and fixate tissue in the face and neck. Made from a complex sugar, polydioxanone (PDO), the threads are a safe, biodegradable, FDA-approved suture material that have been used in surgeries for over 30 years.

PDO threads can be used to lift skin, contour cheeks, define the jawline, and smooth the neck – all without needing to go under a scalpel. What’s more, PDO stimulates the production of collagen, allowing results to last for up to a year.

Benefits of PDO Threads

Safe and non-invasive

Polydioxanone (PDO) is a biodegradable polymer commonly used in surgical sutures because it is absorbable, safe, and has low reactivity in the body.

Lift and tighten skin

PDO threads are inserted under the skin using a needle and are used to lift and tighten lax skin.

Instant, long-lasting results

Clients typically see an immediate lift with PDO threads. The cosmetic threads typically last 1-3 years as your body naturally processes and absorbs them.

How it works

Step 1

You will begin your appointment with a consultation with your provider to discuss your desired outcomes, address any concerns, and assess your facial anatomy.

Step 2

Your provider will cleanse the treatment areas and inject a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort.

Step 3

Your provider will insert PDO threads into the skin using a thin, hollow needle or cannula. The threads are made of absorbable material strategically placed to lift and tighten the skin.

I have enjoyed my treatments and appointments for laser hair removal at Elase. I have seen many clinicians there and they have all been wonderful to work with. My results have been good after almost 12 months , and I have seven more months of treatment to go! They have been great to send reminders and understanding when I have needed to reschedule. I would recommend Elase to everyone!!!

My scheduled appointment for a Diamond Glow procedures began at the scheduled time and Michelle, the aesthetician, did a phenomenal job leaving my skin hydrated and glowing. The staff at Elase always provide excellent service and gorgeous results.
