PDO Threads – Lift & Tighten Skin
What are PDO Threads?
PDO threads stands for polydioxanone thread, a synthetic absorbable surgical suture, proven to be one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body. PDO threads help redefine facial contours and induce collagen production. PDO Threads can also, very effectively, reduce wrinkles, lift sagging skin, and improve the quality of the skin. They are especially useful around the jowls and neck area. The PDO Threads used at Bay Area Women’s Wellness are NovaThreads, which are FDA approved and produced in the USA.
What areas can be treated?
- Upper and lower cheeks
- Forehead (brow lift)

How many sessions are required?
Stimulation reaches full effect about 3 months after treatment, once collagen has naturally formed around the thread. The thread is safely absorbed within 4-6 months and by month 7, the collagen present in the treated area increases by 100%. Results may last between 8 and 14 months.
