Do you ever wonder why babies and young children have such full, clear, and non-wrinkled complexions and as adults we don’t? That answer is collagen.

Collagen is a structural protein that plays an essential role in keeping our skin tight and elastic. However, as we age, our bodies start to lose the ability to produce collagen; about 1% per year after our mid-20s.

When we lose the ability to produce the collagen we need, our skin starts to lose its elasticity causing us to have wrinkles and sagging skin. We get wrinkles from repetitive motions like smiling, laughing, and frowning and since our skin isn’t full of collagen or able to produce as much, it’s hard for it to bounce back into place. Frown lines, crow’s feet, sagging jowls, and cheeks; all of those are due to collagen loss.

So how can we look younger, re-contour our faces, and stimulate collagen production again? That answer is easy: The PDO Thread Lift! 

PDO Thread Lift

What Is The PDO Thread Lift? 

A PDO thread lift is a new and revolutionary facial contouring treatment that uses “threads” made of polydioxanone, a type of dissolvable suture that has been used in the surgical field for decades.

These threads are inserted into the face using a needle and as the needle is removed, the thread stays in place.

Don’t worry though; you won’t feel anything as you’ll be numbed! You may feel some pulling, but no pain.

The threads, since they are not there naturally, cause slight inflammation under the skin and kickstarts collagen production to help restore, and tighten the skin!

The threads are also used to pull the skin taut and minimize the look of wrinkles and re-contour the face in a natural way. 

So now that you know about the treatment, let’s talk about some of the perks of the PDO lift. 

PDO Thread Lift


You won’t have to go under the knife to receive incredible results thanks to the PDO thread lift. This non-surgical procedure is similar to that of Botox or dermal fillers as it is as non-invasive as possible and provides optimal results. 

Quick Procedure

This entire procedure takes about an hour to complete. As we said above, you’ll receive local anesthesia to ease any pain and discomfort. Once that sets in, you’ll receive the PDO Thread Lift treatment. You can come in on your lunch break or after dropping your kids off for a play date. It’s that quick!

Minimal Downtime 

Unlike surgical facelifts which need extensive downtime for healing, you’ll enjoy returning to your daily activities shortly after this procedure. Here at Advanced Skin and Body Solutions, we always recommend a brief respite and no direct sunlight after any treatment. This allows the body to start healing properly and quickly.

Immediate Results

One of the biggest perks of the PDO Thread Lift is that you’ll see immediate results! Since the threads are being pulled to lift and contour your face you’ll see the difference right away. Years of aging will be reduced in a matter of an hour thanks to this treatment! 


We mentioned above that the threads used in the PDO thread lift are dissolvable. However, this doesn’t mean that they only last a few weeks or months. Depending on how your body absorbs the sutures, you can enjoy the results the PDO Thread Lift has to offer since it lasts up to a year! 

But don’t forget that since the threads kickstart the body’s collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production, your skin will look tighter, firmer, and less wrinkled longer!
