What are Threads

PDO Threads are a sterile, single-use, polydioxanone biodegradable suture in a cannula. They are made of a flexible and durable absorbable polymer. PDO threads offer a high safety profile, complete absorption, and minimal tissue reaction. They are embedded subdermally using a cannula and are dissolved and broken down by the body within 3-6 months. Placing threads subdermally initiates collagen production in the treatment area, which leads to increased volume and skin tightening overtime with effects lasting up to 24 months.


Polydioxanone Threads were first used to correct facial paralysis. With time, studies revealed a mechanical induced skin tension and stimulation of fibroblasts to create new collagen. Polydioxanone sutures have been used for almost 30 years in orthopedic surgery, plastic surgery, and ophthalmology.

Categories of Threads

There are two categories of PDO Threads:

Smooth threads are great for patients looking for basic skin rejuvenation and tightening. Most areas require anywhere between 3-20 threads, depending on the treatment surface area.

Lifting threads are great for patients looking for a non-surgical, immediate face lift and long-term collagen stimulation.

PDO Threads

PDO Threads are on the cutting-edge of esthetic procedures. They are a non-invasive treatment that stimulates neocollagenesis through the body’s natural healing process, which increases collagen production and enhances blood flow. This will tighten the skin and improve overall texture and tone. PDO threads also give an immediate lift, and continuously improves results over time.
While neurotoxins paralyze muscles to smooth wrinkles and dermal fillers temporarily build volume and support, PDO threads add in the missing biostimulation that neurotoxins and dermal fillers alone cannot produce. All three treatment modalities can be used in conjunction to provide the all-encompassing results your aesthetic patients are looking for.
