what is PDO Threading?
For patients who do not want to undergo surgery but still want to rejuvenate their skin, our board-certified physicians proudly offer minimally invasive PDO threading treatments. Known as a thread lift or a PDO lift, we perform this treatment at our office using absorbable sutures that contour and raise the face. While delicately raising the jowls and reducing wrinkles, this procedure addresses sagging skin and tissue near the mid-face, which helps patients achieve a smoother, younger-looking complexion. At Nirvana Med Spa in Little Rock, AR, our team members perform PDO threading appointments for men and women who want to reduce the signs of aging without surgery. The threads that we utilize during the procedure help encourage the production of collagen, which helps your skin look healthier and tighter. Please call Nirvana Med Spa to learn more about PDO threading treatments and to see if they work best for your cosmetic goals.

What are the benefits of a PDO thread lift?
Loose or sagging skin can be a source of embarrassment for many people. Excess tissue around the cheeks and jawline can be caused by natural aging, weight loss, and sun exposure. You may find it difficult to feel confident in your appearance. A PDO thread lift can tighten and contour the skin for a more youthful look. Some of the main benefits of PDO threading include:
- Reduce wrinkles and fine lines
- Tighten and contour the skin
- No incisions or scarring
- Little to no downtime
- Natural-looking results
am i a candidate for pdo threading?
PDO threading works well for men and women who experience mild or moderate signs of aging, such as wrinkles, loose skin, and fine lines. Because of the decrease in collagen and elastin production, this can create sagging and volume loss in the middle and lower face. PDO threading is a great treatment option if you want to tighten these areas without undergoing surgery. The treatment can help you attain natural-looking results, and we may combine it with other options, such as injectable dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers for enhanced facial rejuvenation. Additionally, patients should set realistic expectations when pursuing this treatment. A facelift provides longer-lasting results, but PDO threading is a more cost-effective option with little to no recovery time.
how is pdo threading performed?
Completed in a spacious treatment room at Nirvana Med Spa, PDO threading takes about 30 minutes to perform. Before your procedure, we will apply a local numbing cream to reduce any discomfort. It is important to emphasize that this procedure is designed only for lifting and rejuvenation. This procedure is not for suturing or embedding threads, which is often used with other types of thread lifting. We use dissolvable sutures that we gently place in the desired treatment areas. Following your treatment, you can resume your everyday activities. Over time, the sutures will naturally dissolve and help stimulate collagen production. PDO threading may last for 12 – 18 months.
how long do pdo threading results last?
Once we have completed your procedure, you can leave our office to rest at home. Typically, patients may experience mild symptoms, such as redness or swelling near the thread insertion and exit sites, but they should subside after a day or two. The procedure offers immediate, visible results right after the procedure. You should experience smoother skin that looks lifted, contoured, and younger-looking. We will provide detailed aftercare instructions to use at home. If you follow the aftercare instructions, your results may last for up to two years. To further enhance and maintain your results, we can discuss additional treatments.
PDO threading FAQs
Is a thread lift painful?
PDO thread lifts are far less painful compared to invasive procedures like facelift surgery. Most people find the procedure to be a relatively painless experience, but Nirvana Med Spa will still use a local numbing cream to ensure your comfort. You may also experience some discomfort after treatment, but these side effects are mild and temporary.
How long will my results last after a PDO thread lift?
The results of a PDO thread lift are long-lasting but not permanent. The threads will gradually be absorbed by the body over time, so you can expect to enjoy your refreshed outcomes for up to 18 months based on the quality of your skin. Our aesthetic team in Little Rock, AR, will provide a list of ways to preserve your results and prolong your beautiful new look.
What should I not do after a thread lift?
There are a few things patients should avoid after a PDO thread lift, including strenuous exercise and activities that cause excessive sweating. You will also need to avoid direct sun exposure for several weeks after treatment. These post-treatment guidelines are designed to protect your refreshed results and ensure a smooth recovery.
