PDO thread lift (or threading) is a cosmetic technique that lifts and tightens sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production through the implantation of fine, absorbable polydioxanone threads. These threads, which are similar to those used in medical suturing, are implanted into the subcutaneous layer of the skin using small needles by a professional therapist. These threads cause micro-injuries that stimulate collagen synthesis and tissue contraction. After a period of around six months, the threads will have been absorbed into the body leaving new collagen in their place.

The procedure usually requires a local anaesthetic, and like all treatments, carries some side effects, but these are minimal - there is a possibility of swelling and bruising that lasts 2-3 days.

PDO therapy can be used on the cheeks, brow, jawline, neck, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, arms, thighs and abdomen. The lifting effect is at its peak after 6 months when collagen has formed around the threads and lasts between 2-3 years.
