As we age, the effects of gravity become more noticeable on our faces, especially as our facial support structure weakens and we lose facial fat. The areas that are generally affected are the eyebrows, areas around the eyes, the cheeks, the jowls and the neck.
A PDO thread lift is a minimally evasive procedure where facial skin is lifted and tightened using Polydioxanone (PDO) threads. These threads are anchored and inserted into different layers of the skin using needles, instantly lifting and tightening sagging skin. PDO threads are a great nonsurgical facelift procedure that can help raise the areas of loose skin and enhance your facial features to bring out your youthful beauty.
The Shine Medspa team can provide customized PDO thread lift treatments to address your specific skin problems and help you meet your desired outcome. The PDO Thread Lift is one of the most effective ways to lift the loose skin without surgery. The result is a longer, more square-shaped and younger-looking face.

Thread Lift FAQs
How does it work?
The PDO thread is inserted into the subdermal tissue for temporary support of the area being treated. Over the next 6 to 8 months, the threads will dissolve, creating collagen, elastic, and hyaluronic acid. After the thread dissolves, the effects become more pronounced and natural, and the skin will still stay tight in its lifted position because of the new collagen and elastin fibers that were formed.
How long does it take?
The treatment itself only takes 30 to 45 minutes; after that, you’re free to go back to work or whatever else you had scheduled for the rest of your day.
How many treatments will I need?
Most clients enjoy satisfactory results after just one treatment. You should schedule a follow-up treatment six to nine months after your first treatment to see if a follow-up treatment is needed. After that, you shouldn’t need another treatment for two to three years.
How long does a thread lift last?
How long the PDO threads last depends on a number of factors, including the thickness of the threads, the quality of the threads and your body’s rate of metabolism. In most cases the threads will dissolve within six to nine months. However, you should see results for up to three years.
When will I see results?
Some results of the treatment, such as skin lifting and some of the contouring effects, are visible immediately after treatment. The final results of your PDO thread lift will be seen within one to two months of your treatment.
Is the treatment safe?
Thread lifts are completely safe. The procedure is approved by the FDA for safety and efficiency. Moreover, hundreds of thousands of treatments have been performed and there are no reports of allergic reactions, sensitivities to the threads, or serious side effects or risks.
How long is recovery?
Recovery from a PDO thread lift is minimal. You may have some swelling and bruising for the first 24 – 48 hours but you can return to most of your daily routines right away.
You should avoid rubbing your face as much as possible the week after your procedure and should avoid pursing your lips, smoking, and drinking through a straw for the first 10 days.
Other activities you may want to avoid for a week after your procedure are sleeping on your side, intense exercise, and visiting saunas.
