PDO Threads

PDO thread lifts are an advanced popular non-surgical face lift and continue to grow as one of the most popular anti-aging aesthetic treatments available. If you have noticed sagging in areas like the cheeks or neck, PDO threads are a powerful way to achieve surgical results without the downtime and minimal risk. We are excited to now offer PDO threads at our Fargo office to patients looking for the most effective way to achieve a tighter, more defined look.

What are PDO Threads?

One key cause of aging is the breakdown of collagen, an important protein that gives your skin its quality and elasticity. As you age, the skin begins to sag and fold, causing telltale signs like wrinkles, jowls, and neck laxity. PDO thread lifts are a non-surgical procedure using an absorbable suture made of Polydiaxanone (PDO). These types of sutures have been in use in surgeries for many decades but have only recently started to be used as an aesthetic tool.  They work by placing specialized threads under the skin to create lift and volume along with stimulating collagen. The result is an instantly defined and more youthful look.

There are three different kinds of PDO threads, ranging from smooth threads for fine lines and wrinkles to barbed threads that are used for lifting. Each type offers different benefits and Nikki Welk, PA-C can help you select the best option for your needs. In any case, PDO threads not only lift and tighten the skin, but dissolve over time to prompt the regeneration of new collagen to take its place. The result is longer lasting improvement than many other non-surgical skin tightening treatments.

PDO Threads Maintenance

PDO threads typically last for 1-2 years depending on a variety of factors. Nikki typically recommends pairing your PDO thread lift with additional anti-aging options like dermal fillers, Botox, and treatments designed to further tighten the skin.  During a consultation, our experienced team will help you develop the ideal anti-aging package for your needs.
