PDO Threads

What are PDO threads?

PDO threads are injectable threads, made from the same material as dissolvable surgical sutures. Once injected, the threads create a type of scaffolding to support and lift your skin into the desired place. 

PDO threads are uniquely crafted to gently connect to your underlying face or body tissue, which helps keep your skin in its new position. The threads stimulate collagen growth, which covers the sutures. Although the sutures dissolve, your new collagen stays. So, with a thread lift, you get improved skin structure lasting up to two years. 

Novo Medical Aesthetics uses two leading types of PDO thread, MEDiTHREAD and Mint® threads, to lift skin on your face, neck, and body as needed. 

How can PDO threads improve my appearance?

A PDO thread lift can boost your appearance (and your self-esteem) in several ways.


  • Lifting, contouring, and volumizing face, jaw, and neck
  • Smoothing skin wrinkles
  • Toning skin on the face and body

Many patients say that a PDO thread lift gave them an overall rejuvenated appearance, one that they never imagined possible without surgery. 

Does a PDO thread lift hurt?

Novo Medical Aesthetics does everything possible to ensure your comfort. You’ll be in control of the Pro-nox™ nitrous oxide device during your treatment, so you can administer your own pain relief whenever you need it. The majority of PDO thread lift patients tolerate the treatment very well. A brief pulling or tugging feeling (not painful) is normal. 

How long does it take to get a PDO thread lift?

The whole treatment lasts 10-45 minutes, depending on the size of your treatment area and how many threads you need. 

What can I expect after getting PDO threads?

As with any injections, you might experience some swelling, bruising, redness, and pinpoint bleeding. Novo Medical Aesthetics uses the high-tech AccuVein® device to show the location of your facial blood vessels, to avoid bruising. Ice packs are a great way to relieve swelling after getting PDO threads. 

You can return to work whenever you’re ready, with most patients getting back to their regular routine the same day or next day.
