Double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Mario Yco, strategically places dissolvable threads beneath the skin, stimulating collagen production and yielding a natural, refreshed appearance. Say goodbye to sagging skin and hello to a lifted, more youthful you.

What Is a PDO Thread Lift?

A PDO thread lift is a non-surgical procedure designed to lift the face, effectively smoothing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.  During the treatment, dissolvable PDO (polydioxanone) threads are strategically inserted beneath the skin’s surface. These threads act as a support structure, instantly lifting and tightening the treated areas. Over time, the PDO threads dissolve and stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, further enhancing the skin’s firmness and elasticity. The result is a gradual and natural improvement in skin texture and tightness, with the added benefit of minimal downtime. PDO Thread Lifts are highly customizable, making them a versatile solution for addressing various areas of the face and neck, ultimately delivering a refreshed and lifted aesthetic.


“He knows my facial features and does a great job every time”

Love Dr. Yco and staff! I always have a great experience when I go to the office! I’ve been to a few different offices to have my Dysport done, and he is definitely the best! He knows my facial features and does a great job every time, and I never need to come back to have a spot treatment. I recommend Dr. Yco and staff 100%!!

Who Is a Candidate for a PDO Thread Lift?

The ideal candidate for a PDO thread lift is seeking a non-surgical solution to address mild to moderate sagging or laxity in the skin of the face or neck. Ideal candidates may experience concerns such as sagging jowls, nasolabial folds, or diminished skin elasticity. Those looking to achieve a subtle lift and rejuvenation without undergoing invasive surgery often find PDO Thread Lifts appealing. Candidates should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure. This treatment is suitable for individuals who desire a more youthful appearance with minimal downtime, making it an excellent option for those with busy lifestyles. The best way to determine your candidacy is by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Yco at Your Cosmetic Office.

PDO Thread Lift Procedure

Once a personalized treatment plan is established, Dr. Yco administers a local anesthetic to ensure the patient’s comfort during the procedure. Next, dissolvable PDO threads are strategically inserted beneath the skin through fine needles. These threads lift and support the targeted area. The threads are then gently adjusted to achieve the desired lift, and any excess is trimmed. The entire procedure is performed with precision, taking into account the natural contours of the face. With minimal discomfort and downtime, patients can witness a gradual improvement in skin tightness and texture as the threads stimulate collagen production over the following weeks.

Post-Op Care

After receiving PDO threads, you will want to take it easy for the next couple of days. You should avoid any heavy lifting, excessive facial movements, and strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours after treatment. Additionally, patients should refrain from sleeping on their faces and be cautious when washing or applying skincare products to the treated areas. While makeup can typically be resumed after a day or two, patients are encouraged to consult with their practitioner before restarting any rigorous exercise routine.
