PDO Thread Lift | Everything You Need to Know

PDO Threads are a revolutionary treatment in the world of aesthetics but they’ve been used safely for decades! In the past, PDO threads were used in treating gynecological disorders or suturing incisions after medical procedures. For aesthetic purposes though, PDO Threads are used for instant lifting of the skin. PDO threads also contract fat tissue for skin tightening and boost collagen production and neovascularization to renew your skin at the cellular level. The end goal is enhanced skin texture, less lines and wrinkles, and more elastic looking skin. Akin Aesthetics & Wellness in Riverton, UT is excited to offer the PDO Threads as the newest anti-aging service to our guests.

PDO threads are typically pretty quick and easy appointments. PDO Thread appointments typically take around an hour depending on the areas being treated. This also includes consultation time.


PDO threads are versatile and can treat virtually any area of the face. These include the:

* Neck

* Jowls

* Jaw line

* Naso jugal folds

* Nasolabial folds

* Crow’s feet

* Undereye area

* Eyebrows

* Cheeks

* Marionette lines

The treatment itself is not painful. Before inserting the PDO Threads we inject numbing into the area so that your experience is comfortable from start to finish. After numbing, the PDO threads are inserted via needles, called cannulas. Once inserted into the appropriate layer of skin, they act as anchors as the skin is lifted upwards. Then, the excess threads are cut off.


There are two primary types of PDO threads, These are floating non-barbed threads and floating barbed threads. Sub-classifications of non-barbed threads include braided threads and mono-filament threads. Sub-classifications of barbed threads include:

* Unilateral

* Bilateral

* Spiral

* Uni-directional

* Bi-directional

* Z-type

* Cutting barbs

* Molding barbs

You may hear PDO threads described with names such as “heart barbs”, “tornado” or “double screw”. These are all references to various barbed PDO threads.


We advise that you avoid the following before your PDO Thread Appointment:

* Alcohol

* Ginko

* Omega fish oil supplements

* Chinese medicine

* Vitamin E

* High-intensity workouts

* Steam rooms and saunas

* Turmeric

*Aspirin


After treatment most people see instant results. You may be sore for the rest of the day so we recommend taking it easy after getting a PDO Thread Lift. Results can take up to 6 weeks to fully heal, at the time of your initial appointment we will schedule a follow up to check in and make sure everything is healing correctly and that you are satisfied with your PDO Thread Lift results.
