PDO Threads

All About PDO Threads

What are PDO Threads?

PDO Threads are Polydioxanone (PDO) thread lifts that use a biodegradable polyester suture. The brand of  PDO Threads Jova Medical Aesethetics uses offers hyperdermic needles that are preloaded with a surgical grade, absorbable PDO suture. These are well accepted by the body. It is a safe, revolutionary treatment to assist in lifting and tighten skin and reducing the signs of aging.

PDO threads are one of the safest foreign materials that can be implanted and will be absorbed and metabolized within 4 to 6 months without leaving any scars.

What areas can be treated with PDO Threads?

There are many areas that can be well treated with PDO Threads.  Complimentary consultations are available.

As natural aging patterns form, gravity diminshes the V-shape of the face. A lower face PDO thread lift procedure improves sagging skin around the neck and jawline, restoring that youthful V-shape facial structure.

This is a non-invasive, effective treatment that is FDA approved and has been used for years by many around the world. 

Areas that can be treated with PDO threads are:


  • Under-eye
  • Eyebrows
  • Crows feet
  • Mouth wrinkles
  • Cheeks


  • Nasal labial folds
  • Nasojugal folds
  • Jaw Line
  • Jowls
  • Neck


  • Upper arms
  • Breast Lift
  • Tummy tuck
  • Butt Lift
  • Thigh lift
  • Knee lift

How do PDO Threads work?

The lift procedure uses PDO sutures that have “barbs” which provide grip underneath the skin. Sutures are inserted the same way as the mesh technique, however they can be pulled in two directions, creating instant results. Similar to the mesh procedure, this technique also encourages natural collagen production.

           How Long Does a Treatment Take?    A treatment session takes approximately 60 minutes, depending upon the treatment goals,  with no down time. Multiple areas can be done in one session and sessions can also be combined for quick and easy back-to-back treatments.

       How Long Do the Treatments Results Last?   The full effect of each treatment session will be seen 8-12 weeks after the session and the results typically last 6 months to a year, although some have reported results lasting longer than this.

           Is it Painful?   Many clients find the PDO Thread treatment to be very comfortable overall and mainly pain-free.

What is the recovery process for PDO Threads?

Recovery from a PDO thread lift is minimal. You may have some swelling and bruising for the first 24 to 48 hours but you can return to most of your daily routines right away.

You should avoid rubbing your face as much as possible the week after your procedure to avoid accidently dislodging the thread. You’ll also likely be advised to avoid pursing your lips, smoking, and drinking through a straw for the first several weeks.

Other activities you may want to avoid for 1 to 2 weeks include sleeping on your side, intense exercise, and visiting saunas.

Sleeping with your head propped on a pillow can help you avoid accidentally rolling onto your face during the middle of the night.
