At The Refinery Medspa & Wellness, we continually seek the latest in minimally-invasive cosmetic enhancement treatments to refine, rejuvenate, and renew your appearance and skin. So when the signs of aging become too much for your regular skincare routines, you know who to call for procedures like the PDO Threadlift to reduce moderate wrinkles, deepening nasolabial folds and marionette lines, and jowling.

How Does a PDO Threadlift Work?

At The Refinery, we use PDO threads, a bio-absorbable thread that’s been used in orthopedic and cardiovascular procedures for over 30 years to close incisions. FDA-approved for cosmetic rejuvenation with facial contouring, PDO stands for polydioxanone, a complex sugar the body absorbs over time through hydrolysis. A PDO threads barbs are press-molded into a helical pattern to firmly but gently grip tissues and hold them in place until your skin’s natural scaffolding and collagen can be rebuilt.
Using a tiny catheter, your Refinery specialist inserts the PDO threads in a grid under your skin’s surface. The barbs hold tissues in place for immediate lift and improvement to your facial contours. Over time, collagen is rebuilt into a matrix of natural support even as the PDO threads are slowly absorbed. Strong, healthy collagen takes over the threads for a youthful and less aged appearance.

PDO threads can sculpt:

  • Higher cheekbone contours
  • A more defined jawline
  • Softer smile lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines)
  • Smoother necklines
  • Softer eyebrows

Am I a Good Candidate?

If the shape of your jawline or the laxity of your skin has you side-eyeing your reflection and you aren’t quite ready for more invasive procedures like a facelift, then a PDO Threadlift may be exactly what you’re looking for. Ideal candidates have good skin thickness so the threads can be inserted deeply enough, but not too thick to make no visible difference. Your Refinery specialist can assess your skin during your comprehensive consultation to determine if PDO Threadlift is the procedure for you.

What’s the Procedure Like? Take?

PDO threads can be placed in 45-90 minutes with local anesthesia, and your Refinery specialist will create your network of support in your treatment area to achieve your cosmetic goals. The barbs along the threads will latch on and hold your tissues into new contours, minimizing lines and wrinkles, resculpting your jawline or neck, or lifting your cheeks. It’s a much less invasive procedure than a facelift with exciting results.

What Results Can I Expect?

You don’t have to wait weeks or months to see results—the threads provide an immediate lift to your most concerning facial contours. Smoothing away lax skin, lessening deep folds and wrinkles, giving lift and volume to cheeks, and defining a diminished jawline has never been easier. The best part is that while the threads are in place for up to a year, they encourage robust collagen growth. After the threads are absorbed, the collagen network takes over, keeping your skin’s healthy and youthful contours in place for long after your procedure. PDO Threadlift can be safely combined with other procedures, such as laser or injectable treatments to create a powerful treatment plan to preserve your youth and beauty. Say goodbye to deep lines around your mouth or a sagging jawline and cheeks. Say hello to PDO Threads.

Is There Any Downtime?

With no incisions and little chance or rejecting the threads, there’s very little downtime or recovery with a PDO Threadlift. There may be some tenderness in the days following your procedure, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain control such as Tylenol.
