HD PDO Thread Lift

Need a lift? A thread lift is the treatment to beat for lifting and firming skin on the face, neck and body without surgery. We proudly use two types of FDA-approved PDO Threads, which stands for polydioxanone, a fully dissolvable material commonly used in cardiothoracic surgery.

  • PDO threads by MINT®
  • MINT stands for minimally invasive nonsurgical thread. MINT threads are produced by molding technology (rather than cutting) for enhanced durability and better, longer-lasting results.
  • HDPDO™ (high-density polydioxanone) threads
  • HDPDO threads are made under high temperature and pressure to hold maximum tensile strength, resist enzymatic attack and be thermal resistant.

Thread lifts have certainly come a long way since they were invented. Today, thread lifts safely lift sagging skin to restore a younger-looking appearance with minimal discomfort, limited scarring and rapid recovery time.

  • Lift and smooth skin on the face and neck
  • Reveal a more youthful appearance with minimal to no downtime
  • Stimulate new collagen growth
  • Improve skin texture, fine lines and elasticity
  • Provide long-lasting, age-defying benefits for up to two years

FAQs: HD PDO Thread Lift

in Irvine, CA at Jade Phoenix Aesthetic Medicine

A thread lift is a simple, safe and highly effective way to defy the effects of gravity and restore a sharper jawline or V-line to your face. You will relax while we numb your treatment areas. We will then carefully insert the PDO threads into precise positions within your skin. Each thread has bi-directional and helically-positioned barbs. These barbs enable the threads to securely anchor to the skin, allowing us to lift and pull sagging skin into a desired, uplifted position.
Both types of thread lifts are highly effective and safe. HDPDO (high-density polydioxanone) threads are made under high temperature and pressure to hold maximum tensile strength, resist enzymatic attack and be thermal resistant, making them ideal for combination treatments with radiofrequency or laser energy. HDPDO threads do not require a cannula for insertion of the threads, so no lidocaine injection is required — just a topical numbing cream.

During your personal consultation, we will carefully review both types of thread lifts to determine the ideal treatment for you.
Right away! You’ll notice a lifted, younger-looking you immediately following your treatment.
Your age-defying benefits can last up to a year with MINT threads. HDPDO threads can last one and a half to two years. The best thing about PDO threads is that they fully dissolve within six to eight months, but the benefits keep going as the threads continue to stimulate new collagen production deep within your skin.
Yes! We achieve amazing results by combining thread lifts with dermal fillers, which help to restore lost volume with a smooth, hyaluronic acid-based gel. One of the many benefits of HDPDO threads is that they are heat resistant and extremely durable, which means we can safely combine your thread lift with non-invasive energy treatments, injectables or other services.
Thread lift is a safe procedure for healthy adults who have maintained a steady weight for at least three months. Dramatic and abrupt weight fluctuations can diminish the effectiveness of your treatment.
You will be able to return to your normal life immediately following your treatment. However, you should abstain from exercise and other intense activities until getting the go-ahead from us.
The most common side effects with thread lifts are bruising, swelling and dimpling. Most side effects are minimal, if they do occur.
