PDO Thread Lift

A non-surgical facelift where facial skin is mechanically lifted and tightened using Polydioxanone (PDO) threads. These threads are inserted and anchored into different layers of the skin, instantly lifting and tightening sagging skin. These threads are also designed to promote collagen production and neovascularization to renew your skin at the cellular level.

There are three main types of PDO threads: mono, cog, and screw threads. Each type is designed for a slightly different treatment and use.


  • The ideal time to schedule this procedure is at LEAST 3 weeks before a big event.

  • Smoking and all kinds of alcohol must be avoided for at least one week before the procedure as they can dehydrate the skin and even affect the anesthetic step. It helps in speeding the recovery process and providing the best treatment results. 

  • Avoid consuming omega fish oils, vitamin E, chili ginseng, garlic, krill, and other such supplements at least two days before the treatment. It is best to avoid green and ginger teas as well.

  • Aspirin-based products, like Naproxen/Naprogesic, Neurofen, and Ibuprofen, must be avoided as they can cause bleeding, unwanted side effects and complications.

  • Avoid performing high-intensity exercises and going to a sauna or steam room for 24 hours before your procedure.



Post Treatment


PDO Post Care

  • Ice the treated area for a few minutes for four to five times during the day for the first week if you are experiencing slight bruising or swelling.

  • Restrict facial movements for one day. Make sure to rest for a full day after getting the treatment.

  • It is best to avoid aspirins for the next two weeks after the treatment.

  • Avoid applying makeup or facial cream for at least 48 hours.

  • You should not drink a beverage with a straw and focus on drinking liquids or consuming soft foods for at least a week.

  • Chewing gum should be avoided for at least two weeks.

  • Experiencing slight discomfort in the first two days after the procedure is normal, it will gradually reduce.

  • Try keeping your head elevated for a week.

  • Don’t pull your facial skin, massage, scrub or exfoliate the skin for at least three weeks. You are also not supposed to wash or touch your face for at least 12 hours.

  • Follow the care guidelines the practitioner gives you regarding the incision wounds.

  • It is recommended that you sleep on your back to prevent any swelling. Avoid straining or placing pressure on your face as it may result in threads misalignment.

  • Avoid strenuous activity for 4 weeks after getting the PDO thread lift. 

  • Avoid getting any dental treatment for at least six weeks after getting the PDO thread lift.
