Restore a Young & Healthy Appearance

with PDO Non-Surgical Facelift

A PDO Thread Lift is a non-surgical facelift with very limited downtime and known for transforming sagging skin back to a youthful appearance and perfect for people with mild to moderate skin sagging. PDO (or polydioxanone), consists of a small, naturally dissolvable suture thread, is placed into the skin between the eyes and the cheeks. This treatment lifts and pulls back sagging skin to restore a young and healthy appearance.

This advanced treatment not only lasts for up to 6 months but as the microscopically small sutures dissolve, they stimulate collagen replacement, further supporting our clients’ goals to maintain young and healthy-looking skin with elasticity and volume. With downtime of only one to two days, our clients love getting results similar to a surgical facelift at one-quarter of the cost and with far fewer risks.

In the US, there are only a handful of experts with the appropriate training and experience to perform this up and coming procedure – and Denver Laser Solutions is one of them!

Frequently Asked Questions for PDO Threat Lifts

What are the side effects of PDO?

Unlike surgical facelifts, there are far less risks with the non-invasive PDO facelift. Some side effects of this treatment include visible scaring or bruising that will last one to two days. Also, with the microscopically small threads, there is a possibility one can break, thus requiring another thread to be placed. Lastly, there could be a little rippling, but as the sutures dissolve the unevenness goes away.

Does PDO hurt?

The amount of discomfort is minimal. To help alleviate any uneasiness, we place a local dental anesthetic in the area where we will be working.

How much downtime is there with PDO?

There will be minor bruising and swelling that is minimal enough that it can be covered with makeup for the one to two days while it lasts. We recommend that you get PDO at least two weeks prior to a major event such as a wedding or high school reunion.

Is PDO reversible?

Yes, PDO is completely reversible. If you don’t continue to get the treatment, your skin will return to where it was previously.

Can I further support PDO with fillers such as Juvederm?

Yes! For our Denver PDO clients that want additional fillers to provide additional support for sagging skin, we use Juvederm to give this extra lift.

How long is the PDO procedure?

PDO treatments last about 60 to 90 minutes.

How many sutures are placed during a treatment?

We place about three to seven sutures per side during the PDO treatment.

How do I know if I am a good candidate for PDO?

PDO is an excellent treatment for people with mild to moderate sagging. A no-commitment consultation is required prior to treatment to determine your eligibility.

What can I expect during the PDO treatment?

During a PDO treatment, we will draw lines on the face to ensure exact placement of the threads. We will always take photos, so you can see the difference before and after the treatment. We then take the needle from a tiny point near the eye and thread the suture from this area down the face.

What will PDO do to the appearance of my face?

It will pull the corners of your mouth and jowls up.  It will pull the area near the nasal labial fold back and it will reduce smile lines and give your face a nice sharp, youthful definition.

Do I need a follow up visit?

Yes, two weeks after your PDO treatment you will need to return to Denver Laser Solution for a follow up visit. We can then discuss if more sutures would be beneficial. If you would like to have more sutures placed, they can be inserted during your follow up visit.

Is PDO safe?

The PDO procedure and thread has been used for years in heart and spinal surgery. PDO has also been used aesthetically for non-surgical facelifts and wrinkle reduction in Asia and Europe for almost two decades. Now that the FDA has approved PDO for aesthetic use in the US, everyone here can enjoy the many benefits of a low cost, low-risk non-surgical facelift.

Why should I choose Denver Laser Solutions for PDO?

Although this treatment has been used for non-surgical facelifts and wrinkle reduction in Europe and Asia for decades, it was only approved for aesthetic use in the US within the last four years. In the US, there are only a handful of experts with the appropriate training and experience to perform this up and coming procedure – and Denver Laser Solutions is one of them.
