By choosing a PDO thread lift at Total Cosmetix, you can reap the following aesthetic benefits:

- Fewer fine lines and wrinkles
- Less skin sagging
- Smoother skin
- Younger-looking skin
- Enhanced collagen production
- More confidence
Because a PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure, downtime is minimal and strong pain medicine isn’t necessary.
A polydioxanone thread lift (PDO) is a non-invasive procedure that uses very thin, biodegradable polyester threads. These threads are passed beneath the skin to lift and smooth sagging areas on the face without physically removing any skin. Sutures are placed in specific areas to lift the skin physically. The suture material will naturally dissolve over time while also stimulating collagen. This collagen helps lift and tighten skin long after the sutures have dissolved, giving the patient long-lasting results.
A thread lift requires no cuts or small incisions. It leaves no scars, making it much more convenient for patients unable to take time to heal from a surgical facelift.
The thread lift before and after pictures will show a noticeable difference in the smoothness and firmness of your skin. A PDO face-lift is often used in conjunction with dermal fillers as a less invasive option for those who do not wish to undergo surgery.

When Will I See Results From PDO Threads?
When Do PDO Threads Stop Hurting?
Avoid the following post-treatment for the first week after surgery:
- Strenuous activity
- Drinking with a straw
- Having a dental procedure
- Pulling or scratching at the treated area
- Sleeping on your side or stomach
The skin may feel unusual and a little tight after treatment. Be gentle when cleansing the face and applying products. Any bruising or swelling will be minimal and can be treated with ice and over-the-counter pain relievers. Most patients recover entirely within two weeks after your thread lift.
A PDO thread lift treatment can cost anywhere from $1,500 to $4,500. The final price is dependent on many factors such as:
- Area the lift is performed
- Extent of sagging
- Surgeon’s level of experience
- Choosing to combine threads with other procedures
Schedule an appointment with Dr. Towhidian, a PDO thread lift specialist, to see if you are a good candidate for a thread lift and determine the cost.
PDO threads are naturally absorbable and will dissolve within six months. They are the same threads used in heart surgery patients. The threads are FDA-approved and safe for your body.
Some popular areas to threat with PDO threads on the face are:
- Under eyes
- Upper neck
However, a thread lift can be performed on almost any area of the face. Thread lifts provide a gentle, non-invasive smoothening of sagging and wrinkled areas.
Eye bags, droopy eyes, and dark circles under your eyes naturally result from aging skin. Having an under-eye PDO thread lift can significantly improve the skin around the eyes. This procedure is a non-invasive alternative to eyelid surgery and can lift under-eye bags through carefully placed sutures. As the sutures dissolve, they stimulate collagen production, which helps regenerate and tighten skin. Visit Dr. Towhidian to discuss if an under-eye PDO thread lift is a good option for you.
As our neck muscles weaken and we lose elasticity in our skin, many notice sagging in the chin and jaw areas. Many patients desire a lower face-lift but are not ready for the inconvenience of surgery. With a PDO face-lift, small threads are placed below or along the jawline or cheek area. These threads tighten and lift the skin providing a natural, lower face-lift. Additionally, they cause the skin to produce new collagen to help tighten the skin.
