What is a PDO Thread Lift?
A PDO Thread Lift is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that smooths away fine lines and wrinkles, and tightens lax skin by gently lifting your natural facial features. The threads used in the PDO Thread Lift are made of a special biodegradable material called Polydioxanone. These threads not only support lax structures within your treated areas, but they also stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen for a youthful-looking lift that keeps improving over time. Many of our patients turn to a PDO Thread Lift to mimic the results of a facelift without the cutting, anesthesia, and lengthy recovery period typically associated with the traditional plastic surgery procedure.
How Much Does a PDO Thread Lift Cost in Phoenix?
PDO Thread Lifts will likely be considered elective by your medical insurance carrier. We will review the cost of the treatment after your consultation. Payment can be made by cash, check or major credit card. We also accept Prosper® Healthcare Lending and CareCredit® as financing options for our medical spa services.
Benefits of a PDO Thread Lift
Arizona Facial Plastics’, PC, is proud to offer PDO Thread Lift treatments to men and women in the Phoenix area because the treatment provides several unique benefits, such as:

- Creates an overall more youthful appearance
What Can I Expect from my PDO Thread Lift?
Your PDO Thread Lift will be performed by our expert medical team members in our beautiful office. Before your PDO Thread Lift begins, a local anesthetic may be administered to your treatment area. This is just to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout your treatment. Once numb, the PDO threads will carefully and strategically be inserted into your desired treatment area via a thin, hollow needle called a cannula. The entire treatment session typically takes about an hour to complete.
How Does the PDO Thread Lift Differ From Other Types of Skin Rejuvenation?
PDO Thread Lift treatments are typically recommended for patients who wish to tighten their lax skin and rejuvenate their facial features, but also wish to avoid invasive plastic surgery. The primary benefit of the treatment, when compared to other types of skin rejuvenation, is that the PDO threads used in the Thread Lift mimic the results of a facelift while improving the body’s natural production of collagen. This ensures your results will be long-lasting and will keep improving with time.
Recovery from a PDO Thread Lift
Because PDO Thread Lifts are non-invasive, they require no special recovery. Mild redness, tenderness, swelling, and bruising around the treated areas is normal and typically resolves within a few days of treatment. We typically recommend patients avoid sleeping on the sides of their face and keep their heads elevated with pillows at night for the first two weeks following treatment.
