When looking to treat sagging or lax skin, especially around the neck area, many of our clients opt to use a thread lift with PDO threads. For more detail on the thread lift procedure, check to our Neck Lift page.

PDO stands for Polydioxanone and these PDO threads are a special thread—medical grade—which is thinner than a human hair. The proven benefit of using these protein-based threads is that they relax muscles and tendons and stimulates collagen production and improved blood flow when inserted in the skin. These threads work on a cellular level to rejuvenate the skin in addition to the physical tightening of the skin. Everything works synergistically to give the skin a more youthful appearance.

PDO threads come in various types, each of which can me used for a specific purpose. There are two primary types: floating non-barbed threads and floating barbed threads. When you schedule a consultation with our PDO provider here at FemCare you’ll learn more about which specific type of thread may be used to achieve the result you desire.

PDO thread lifts are time-tested and safe. The same substance has been used in surgeries for years. The process takes only 15-30 minutes and you will be able to resume your normal daily activities afterward. Before the procedure we apply an anesthetic and once it’s taken effect we will begin the process of using PDO threads to tighten the skin using needles so fine you won’t feel them at all.
