Don’t Get Caught By Surprise: Here’s Everything You Need To Know About PDO Threads

Does it worry you that your face is starting to sag sooner than you expected? At R&R Wellness, we may have the right solution for you.

We’re talking about skin-rejuvenating PDO threads. These are used in a procedure called a thread lift, and it does exactly as its name suggests – it gives your skin an instant, lasting lift that lasts months.

So, why are PDO threads getting so popular these days? Here’s why!


PDO or Polydioxanone is a naturally absorbable material commonly used for surgical sutures. Consequently, a PDO thread lift is widely used in cosmetic treatments to tighten loose skin in problematic areas like the jawline and the chin.

Using a needle or fine cannula, the PDO threads are inserted underneath the skin, gripping the underlying layers and tissue to produce an instant yet natural-looking lift.

The number of threads used per session usually depends on the size of the treatment area/s and the degree of skin laxity.


A PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure, where a thread is inserted in the subdermal tissue after numbing the area. The thread gradually dissolves within months, stimulating the formation of collagen and elastin to firm and lift the skin naturally from within.

This triggers the body’s natural healing processes and the boost in collagen production results in smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin that looks and feels better every day for months.


PDO threads via a thread lift can provide plenty of rejuvenating benefits, such as:

  • Smoothing uneven skin texture
  • Diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Tightens and lifts loose, sagging skin
  • Leaves no scars
  • Less invasive and more affordable alternative to a traditional facelift
  • Minimal downtime
  • Instant and natural-looking results that last months
  • No surgery or anesthesia required

At R&R Aesthetics & Wellness, we combine smooth and barbed threads to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and to lift the skin, respectively.

The best part is that our treatment results from a PDO Thread lift usually last up to 18 months or even longer with follow-up appointments and proper aftercare. The skin just looks and feels better each day over this time, as PDO threads promote collagen formation to rejuvenate the skin naturally from within.

One last thing: before you decide to move forward with a PDO thread lift, you need to consult with an experienced and trained practitioner to determine if this treatment is suitable for your needs and goals.

Here at R&R Wellness, our trained providers have carried out several PDO thread lifts, providing countless patients in Fort Worth, TX with beautiful, natural-looking results that last months. They will be more than happy to do the same for you.
