PDO Threads are a special, medical-grade thread that is similar to the size of human hair or larger and made of protein.
PDO Threads are a customizable lifting treatment designed to lift and tighten the skin, giving you a youthful, fresh appearance without the invasiveness, cost, or downtime of traditional facelift surgery. PDO Threads help to boost your body’s natural supply of collagen which rejuvenates your skin to keep it looking and feeling young. Studies have shown that PDO Threads relax the tendons and muscles while the injection of the threads increases blood flow to the area which stimulates the production of new collagen in the skin. In addition to lifting, they can be used to stimulate collagen in areas of wrinkles.

How Does it Work?
For a thread lift, our Rochester specialists use a hollow cannula to place the threads into the patient’s face. The thread grabs at loose tissue underneath the surface of the skin and as the cannula is removed, it lifts and tightens the skin. For collagen boost in areas of wrinkles, the threads can be inserted in multiple patterns often overlapping.
