PDO Thread Lift: A Non-Surgical Facelift


When it comes to combating the effects of aging, there are many ways to go about it. There are numerous treatments and procedures that improve your skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. We understand there aren’t many non-surgical ways to look and feel younger. However, there are a few worth trying. One such treatment is a PDO thread lift. At BeYOUtiful Anti-Aging Studio, we want you to be confident and proud of your age. We can achieve this with reliable PDO thread lifts, a non-surgical facelift that reduces the effects of aging. If you would like to know more about this treatment, visit us in Houston, TX, or contact us.

What Is a PDO Thread Lift?

We use thread lifts to lift and tighten skin without surgery. It is similar to a traditional facelift without scary incisions and an uncomfortable recovery period. During a thread lift treatment, we use absorbable suture threads to lift your skin. We will insert them under your skin to restore some elasticity and contours to your face. Loose skin is pulled back as the threads reposition your underlying skin tissue, providing instant results. In addition, the procedure triggers your body’s healing response, which stimulates the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, sending them to the area you want to be treated. 

Now that you know how a thread lift works, we can discuss PDO threads. PDO is the abbreviation for polydioxanone. This is a sugar molecule that is inside the absorbable suture. Due to the makeup of PDO, it causes minimal tissue reaction and trauma, making it absorbable and safe to use by your body. These PDO threads are minimally invasive and non-surgical. We use them to effectively lift and hold your skin to restore your youthful appearance. These threads have been designed to correct sagging skin tissue and increase skin elasticity, texture, and volume by stimulating your body’s ability to produce collagen. PDO thread treatments can give you younger-looking skin without the hassle of surgery and extended downtime. You can also enjoy immediate results.

Schedule a Consultation

The first step of this exciting journey is an initial consultation. During this time, we will discuss your hopes and goals for the treatment. We will also assess your medical history, current lifestyle, and other factors influencing the treatment. This is an important part of the process so we can all be on the same page about your expectations and the reality of the treatment. This is also a good time to ask us questions about the treatment so you can be 100% at ease with the process. 

The Procedure

To begin, a topical anesthetic will be applied. We will then create a treatment map on your face so we can identify the precise PDO thread entry points. Once that is complete, we will administer a lidocaine injection to ease any discomfort you may experience during the treatment. The next step is inserting the PDO threads under your skin by the entry points. 

We will then ask you to sit up once the threads have been inserted so you can inspect the results and make adjustments if you are not satisfied. Once you are happy, we will cut off the excess threads, and you will be able to see the results without delay. 

This procedure can be completed during your lunch break since it is so quick and simple. The session is no longer than one hour, and you will be able to return to work afterward. This minimally invasive treatment is perfect for people with busy lives. After one short session, you can look as young as you feel.

The Benefits of PDO Thread Lifts 


This anti-aging treatment offers so many benefits. One of these benefits is the wide range of uses it has. For instance, patients can customize their treatments to obtain specific results, such as higher cheekbones, tighter necklines, defined jawlines, and even exotic cat eye contouring. 


You can enjoy the effects of a facelift without enduring the long surgery, lengthy downtime, and uncomfortable healing process. It also won’t cost nearly as much as a surgical procedure, which requires anesthesia and a surgeon. 

Instant Results 

Once we cut the excess threads, you will be able to see the results. Unlike most other non-surgical treatments, PDO thread lifts offer instant results. To make things better, you will also continue to see improvements as the treatment stimulates collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production to help restore your skin. Your skin will tighten over time and look healthier than ever. 


The PDO threads dissolve six to nine months after the procedure, but the results won’t disappear when they do. You can still enjoy your youthful, lifted skin for up to two years after the procedure.

Natural-Looking Results

Unlike some surgical and non-surgical anti-aging treatments, PDO thread lifts won’t give you an unnatural or expressionless appearance. If you aren’t satisfied with the way it looks, you can adjust the threads during the procedure until you are 100% satisfied. You also won’t need to worry about scarring, since there are no incisions involved.
