PDO Threads

Injectable Xpress Rx, Inc.
PDO Threads in Atlanta, GA


Until recently, cosmetic antiaging treatments were limited to things like injectables and invasive facelifts. The team at Injectable Xpress Rx, Inc. in Atlanta, Georgia, is proud to offer a new procedure that uses PDO threads for lifting. A PDO thread lift is a nonsurgical facelift that improves visible signs of aging by lifting areas where your skin has lost elasticity. The treatment is an excellent option if you don’t feel ready to commit to surgery. To see if you could benefit from PDO threads, call the office or go online to book a consultation today.

What are PDO threads?

A PDO thread-lift is a minimally invasive procedure that provides contouring, volume, and skin texture improvement. The treatment lifts sagging skin using threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO). These threads are dissolvable and are usually used for medical sutures, which are stitches that hold a wound together.

PDO threads pull back portions of your face for a more youthful look. The stitches also trigger your body to produce more collagen, which improves your skin’s elasticity.

How is a PDO thread lift done?

During your treatment, your provider first applies a numbing agent. Then, they insert the PDO threads into your skin using a small needle. Once all the threads are correctly inserted, they are pulled upwards to lift drooping tissue. The entire procedure takes between 45-60 minutes.

What areas are helped by PDO threads?

PDO thread lifts can address a series of issues, including:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Eyebrow lift
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Glabellar lines 
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Perioral lines
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Submental folds
  • Neck
  • Jawline

The thread lift is a safe and quick method to reverse signs of aging in the face and neck.

What can I expect after a lift with PDO threads?

After the PDO threads are introduced, you’ll notice:

  • An instant skin lift from the mechanical pulling and lifting of your skin
  • A tightening effect from the contracting tissue
  • Cellular renewal from the stimulation of collagen production

After about six months, your body absorbs the threads. Your lift remains for another 3-6 months because of cellular rejuvenation triggered by the collagen. Simultaneously, the threads cause fat tissues to connect, giving you a tighter and slimmer face.

What are the advantages of a PDO thread lift?

The main advantage of a lift with PDO threads is that there is no downtime. The procedure is done with a local anesthetic, which means you are free to drive yourself home or continue your workday after your appointment.

Unlike an actual facelift that can require weeks of recovery time, a PDO thread lift is a safe, nonsurgical option with a negligible recovery time. 

To book your lift with PDO threads, call the Injectable Xpress Rx, Inc. office or go online to make an appointment today.
