PDO Suture Thread Lifts | MediThreads



MediThread PDO (Polydioxanone) thread lift is a minimally invasive treatment aimed to assist with skin tightening, rejuvenation, toning of the tissue, collagen stimulation, and skin lifting. MediThread’s technique assist with naturally sculpting the face using synthetic tension lines under the skin.

Typical treatment areas include cheek lifts, nose lifts, acne scars, brow lift, lip volume, wrinkles, fine lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, jaw line, mid face, glabella, and below the eyes.



MediThread PDO thread lifts are absorbable tension PDO sutures placed under the skin to assist with lifting of the skin, decreasing wrinkles, synthesis of two different type of collagen. When using MediThread’s system offered at our Medical Spa, many have seen immediate improvement in the appearance of their skin. Initial results may be seen as soon 3 weeks post treatment. PDO stimulates the natural production of collagen to help with your skins brightness, texture, and elasticity. 



There are many different types of PDO threads, and it depends on the desired results, and injection location that determines how many, and which threads will be used. The two general groups of threads are smooth threads or barbed threads. Smooth threads will assist with stimulating collagen, and the barbed threads assist with lifting and repositioning the skin. 

Whenever PDO sutures are placed, many have seen immediately improvement. Two weeks after injections, the synthesis of elastin and collagen starts and will continue for up to 6 months. Aesthetic effects from PDO thread have been reported to last up to 18 months. 

Here at PMD we use MediThreads. MediThread needles are thinner and more flexible in design allowing to follow the faces natural curves. Clinical observation has shown that PDO threads have increased the synthesis of hyaluronic acid and improved localized microcirculation. This in turn stimulates the production of new collagen. The two types of collagen produced are collagen Type I, and Type III. With new collagen proteins being stimulated this leads to firmer skin, more elasticity, and improved hydration.
