PDO Threads in Huntington Beach, CA

For facial lifting, tightening, & rejuvenating in 60 minutes or less

Facelifts may be the reigning champion of facial rejuvenation techniques, but the facelift’s little sister is rapidly rising through the ranks. PDO threads are becoming increasingly popular for creating facelift-adjacent results without the surgical techniques used by its more famous sibling. PDO threads have the power to lift facial features, tighten skin, reduce fine lines/wrinkles, and even promote collagen production for a more youthful reflection all around.

At Venus MD in Huntington Beach, CA, we offer both facelifts and PDO threads. We know that not everyone is ready to commit to facelifts, and proudly offer PDO threads as an introductory version of the popular surgery without the surgery. To learn more, schedule your PDO consultation today.

Benefits of PDO Threads

PDO threads are rapidly gaining fame for their 60-minute, non-surgical appointment window. Beyond the speed, ease, and comfort of the procedure itself, PDO threads offer additional benefits, including:

  • Tighter skin

  • Improved collagen production
  • Improved circulation
  • Improved tissue adhesion
  • Non-surgical
  • Long-lasting (up to 2-3 years)
  • No general anesthesia required

How PDO Threads Work

PDO stands for polydioxanone—a medical-grade synthetic fiber already widely used in sutures. PDO has a high tensile strength but is gentle on tissue. By inserting PDO threads at tactical angles beneath the skin, underlying facial tissue is lifted, boosted, and smoothed for a more youthful appearance that prohibits the development or worsening of new and old fine lines and wrinkles for upwards of 2-3 years.

PDO Threads FAQs

Yes! PDO threads require less disruption to your natural facial tissue when compared to facelifts, though facelifts last longer and are considered permanent. Once settled in their positions, PDO threads lift and hold the skin. PDO threads follow your face’s natural contours and angles while improving the texture, quality, and appearance of skin.

Polydioxanone has enjoyed a successful history of uses in other medical applications—namely as strong, but gentle, sutures. The material also naturally avoids infection or rejection, further justifying its use in sutures and in the cosmetic industry. When inserted by a skilled hand, PDO threads are safe, effective, and popular. They’re also completely reversible, so if for whatever reason you don’t like the results, they’re easily removed.

At Venus MD, we’ll do everything we can to make your PDO thread lift procedure as comfortable as possible. PDO thread lifts only take an hour, and our tumescent anesthesia should make the procedure fast and comfortable. Most patients report tenderness, minimal swelling, and bruising afterward, but little discomfort during the procedure itself.
