PDO Thread Lifting

PDO THREAD lifting

PDO thread lifting is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure that is used to lift and tighten sagging skin on the face, neck, and body. The procedure involves the use of special threads with small barbs that are inserted into the skin and then used to lift and reposition it.

The procedure is typically done in a doctor’s office and takes about 60-75 minutes. It is well-tolerated due to the use of local anesthesia and the experience of the practitioner. The quality and duration of the results can vary depending on the type of thread used. At Healing Aesthetics, we use high end threads, MINT™ threads, which are considered to be among the best PDO threads for lifting and tightening the skin.

PDO threads have barbs that are able to lift droopy skin. These kind of threads are ideal to lift nasolabial folds, marionette, jowls, neck, and other areas in the body such as breast, arms, thighs and abdomen.
