What Is A Thread Lift?
About The PDO Thread Lifts
A PDO Thread lift utilizes absorbable polymer which makes this minimally invasive procedure highly effective. The PDO threads come in three textures: mono, screw and cog type. Mono threads are smooth and are primarily used for a subtle lift to the face.
Cog threads are textured and provide a better lift and an increase of collagen production in the treated area. Finally, screw threads are intertwined threads which provide an increased volume to the area. Which thread is right for your desired goal can be determined at your complimentary consultation!

Thread Lift vs Face Lift
A thread lift however is significantly easier. It is performed with local / topical anesthesia which allows for the patient to drive themselves home after the procedure. Certain patients may have soreness, redness or swelling, but usually patients can return to work immediately as this is a minimally invasive procedure.
Who Is A Good Fit For A Thread Lift?
An ideal candidate for a thread lift is a patient in their late thirties and older. It is ideal for someone looking to restore shape and reduce fine lines.
The “fox eyes” is currently in vogue as young celebrities and models have been noticed with their transformed eye and brow shape into a more elongated, almond shape.
This puts this aesthetic trend in high demand.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
Most of our clients at LA Beauty Skin center see satisfactory results after a single thread lift treatment with a follow up schedule 6-8 months after initial treatment.
Treatments typically last up to three years but can vary depending on the patient and lifestyle.
