PDO Thread Lift
Los Gatos

You may want to think about getting a PDO thread lift in Los Gatos if you’re searching for a minimally invasive method to enhance your looks and remove years from your face but don’t want to undergo a full surgery.

What Is A PDO Thread Lift?

PDO thread lift, also known as sugar threads, is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure aimed at lifting sagging skin and stimulating collagen production. During the procedure, bio-absorbable PDO threads are inserted beneath the skin, providing immediate lifting effects while gradually dissolving over time. As the sugar threads dissolve, they trigger the body’s natural collagen production, leading to improved skin firmness and elasticity for a more youthful appearance

A PDO thread lift is a non-surgical facelift in which polydioxanone also known as PDO threads are used to lift and tighten the facial skin. By employing needles to attach and place these threads into various layers of the skin, sagging skin is immediately lifted and tightened. Per segment, 1 to 15 threads may be utilized.

PDO threads come in three primary varieties: smooth, barb, and twist threads. Each variety is created for a somewhat varied usage and treatment. The smooth texture will work well for the majority of people seeking skin tightening and rejuvenation. That said, each PDO thread is used based on the patient’s needs and goals.

Treatment Areas

PDO threads can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns but the most popular skin treatment areas are the:

  • Lower face
  • Jawline
  • Upper neck
  • Nose bridge and tip
  • Brows

The majority of patients who seek treatment with PDO threads in Los Gatos do so with the intention of focusing on one or more areas of the face where they feel they would like to improve the appearance of the skin or eliminate signs of aging. Having said that, during your consultation, your specialist will develop a treatment plan that is capable of accurately treating exactly the concerns you have and will make use of the appropriate PDO thread to accomplish those goals.

Our PDO Thread Options In Los Gatos


Smooth threads and barb threads are similar, but barb threads include barbs that adhere to the skin’s surface. To raise drooping tissue, these barbs provide improved support to the structure of the skin. Collagen is successfully encouraged to develop around the threads and their barbs by these threads.

For skin that appears and feels smooth and firm, barb threads may be used alone or in conjunction with smooth threads to mechanically support tissue structures. By raising sagging skin around the jawline, these kinds of threads are often utilized to give the face a smaller appearance. Barbs may provide an eyebrow thread lift, a thread lift for the nose, and a thread lift for the jowls.


One kind of PDO filament is called a smooth thread. These minimally invasive threads are smooth and produced without barbs. To obtain the greatest tightening results, smooth threads are often injected into the skin in a mesh-like pattern.

Once within the skin, the threads start the creation of collagen, which gradually tones and rejuvenates the skin. Smooth threads do not dramatically raise the skin; but, they do tighten it.

These skin tightening procedures may be used to alleviate wrinkles on the face, forehead lines, and sagging skin in the neck. In general, 10 to 30 PDO thread in Los Gatos are utilized for each treatment region, and the threads may also provide volume to the cheeks.

Smooth threads may be paired with barb threads to provide a nonsurgical wrinkle treatment that has both tightening and lifting effects. Treatment areas for smooth threads include lip lines, necklines, marionette lines, lower cheek, around the eyes, forehead lines, and abdomen.



Twist threads are a great alternative if you want to add additional volume to certain parts of your face. There are twist threads available with one or two threads entangled around the insertion needle to enhance the effects.

Twist threads assist in reversing depressed regions and providing a non-surgical facelift in order to contour the face into a V shape. A “multi twist” is a technique that involves entwining two threads.

Aged tissues may be tightened, lifted, and supported using PDO thread in Los Gatos without the need for invasive procedures like surgery. Depending on the locations to be treated with little discomfort, the process takes at least an hour or more. PDO thread outcomes generally endure for 18 to 24 months on average.
