PDO threads or Polydioxanone (PDO) threads, is a non-surgical, minimally invasive in office treatment performed by an advanced trained practitioner with years of training in PDO thread vectors and techniques
This treatment uses small needles to insert absorbable threads to stimulate collage production under the skin without the need for surgery or excessive downtime, you may even go back to work and daily activities right away.

As your body absorbs the threads, the treated areas undergo a cascade of collagen building benefits resulting in lifted, younger-looking, firmer skin.

Smooth threads
Smooth threads help rebuild the foundation of the aging skin. Threads are placed in specific patterns, and as the threads dissolve, they form a matrix of collagen to improve acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, tighten skin, under eyes, “smoker lines” and much more

Barbed threads
Barbed threads are threads with molded barbs. They are made of the same Polydiaxone thread material as smooth threads, and have a much thicker, more robust strength with the capability to physically lift and anchor sagging skin upwards.

Treatment Area

Barbed threads are often referred to as “non-surgical face lift” and have minimal to no downtime
