A thread lift is a technique that uses thin threads of polydioxanone (PDO) inserted under the skin to gently reposition tissue and stimulate collagen production to increase volume. PDO threads are FDA approved, with few or no side effects.
For a brow lift, PDO threads are positioned in the forehead to lift the brow and eye area. The threads dissolve over time, and leave in their place smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin.
What To Expect During Treatment
Before your treatment, your trained aesthetician will evaluate the area to be treated, and create a personalized treatment plan, targeting the areas you want to enhance. During the treatment, you will be given a local anesthetic. The PDO threads will then be precisely inserted under the skin, with sutures that begin the lifting process. The procedure takes about 45 minutes (sometimes longer, depending on the area treated). After a brief recovery period, you can drive yourself home.
After the treatment, you’ll be given a care plan during the healing process. There may be some initial redness and soreness. Avoid scrubbing the treated area too hard, and you may need to avoid moisturizers for a while. You may also need to be careful about putting pressure on the treated area for a few days.

What Are The Results Of Treatment?
In some cases, when threads are used to create definition, you may begin seeing results in a few days as the healing process begins. Since the treatment also relies on collagen production, you’ll see more results in the weeks afterward.
A thread lift does not provide the same amount of “lift” as a surgical procedure, but it can make a significant difference, especially in targeting areas of treatment. A thread lift may be used in conjunction with other treatments for optimum results. For example, a thread lift doesn’t address pigmentation from aging, so other treatments can complement its effects.
