PDO Thread treatment areas may include crow’s feet, the lower part of the face, jawline, and jowls, this procedure tightens the skin and will improve sagging tissue and facial contour giving you enhanced skin texture, fewer fine lines and wrinkles, and improved collagen production.
PDO Thread FAQ’s
What is a PDO Thread lift?
A PDO thread lift is a procedure that uses a dissolvable suture to tighten and lift the skin. The procedure is less invasive than facelift surgery and can often be performed in under 45 minutes without needing to go under the knife.
What is involved in the PDO Thread lift procedure?
The procedure for PDO thread lifting may be slightly different depending on the area you’re targeting as well as your provider’s preferences. The basic technique is usually the same.
- You’ll be asked to recline in our treatment room where your procedure is being performed. Alcohol, as well as a topical anesthetic, will be applied to your skin as it’s prepped.
- A thin needle or cannula will be used to insert the threads underneath your skin. Inserting the threads can take 30 to 45 minutes.
- After the threads are inserted, the method of insertion will be removed. You may feel light pressure or tightening under your skin.
- Within a few minutes of the needles being taken out, your procedure will be complete and you’ll be free to go home or back to work.
How long does a PDO Thread lift last?
A PDO Thread Lift leaves the face firmer, tighter, and more youthful in appearance, and it offers results that can last 18 months or more.

Jo and her team are great, always professional and friendly. I've been a client at Onyx for about 18 months after having tried a few other local beauty businesses. I suggest you book a consultation with Jo first then make a plan with her to get your skin looking the best it can - I am super happy with my results and will continue to keep coming back.
