There are three primary PDO threads available on the market;  PDO mono threads, barbed PDO threads, and double screw PDO threads. Each one is used for a  different treatment approach:

  1. Smooth floating mono PDO threads are placed under your skin to stimulate collagen production and are used for skin tightening. The PDO threads stimulate collagen production through a complex process known as mechanotransduction. Your skin cells are mechanically stimulated into healing activity through the release of growth factors.
  2. Barbed PDO threads are used to lift skin, e.g. for jowl lift or neck lift.
  3. Double Screw PDO threads are used to volumise grooves or folds, e.g. nasolabial folds and marionette lines.

Mono PDO Threads are for Skin Laxity

Mono PDO thread lifts target skin laxity and is designed to tighten skin by stimulating new collagen growth (neocollagenesis). A PDO thread facelift involves inserting 100 – 200 tiny threads under the skin along specific vector lines. These are designed to improve skin texture and quality, smooth fine lines and wrinkles and tighten sagging skin. Though not intended for lifting, a slight lift is commonly achieved. (A bonus)

Barbed PDO Thread Lifts are for Skin Redundancy

Barbed PDO thread lifts target skin redundancy and relies on a mechanical pull of 12-16 threads inserted under the skin.  These are then pulled to lift redundant skin. Depending on the technique used, thread lifting can restore volume to its rightful place. While providing some neocollagenesis, Mono PDO threads are better suited for skin texture improvement. Barbed PDO threads can be used as a solo treatment or combined with dermal filler or mono and double screw threads.

Double Screw PDO Threads are for Volume Replacement

Double screw PDO threads are used to replace volume loss in areas of small deficit, such as marionette or nasolabial fold. They have a unique action because they consist of a double twist of the PDO thread. When placed under the skin and untwist, they cause neocollagenesis inside and outside the thread. Subsequently, collagen networks are formed between the ligaments and surrounding tissue, acting as a solid filler. Double screw PDO threads are tightening and firming products with subtle volumising for very natural facial contouring.

PDO Thread Lifts with Fillers.

PDO thread lifts are commonly combined with dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxing treatments. Combinations treatments are essential for harmony and balance in facial contouring. Our Doctors will customise a therapeutic approach for facial contouring depending on the assessment of your face and the degree of volume loss, sagging and skin condition.

What are PDO Threads?

PDO Threads (polydioxanone) are cosmetic facial threads that were popularised in Korea. They are placed in the subcutaneous fat layer. Although their use in cosmetic medicine is relatively new, polydioxanone has been used as a suture material for decades and was adopted into aesthetics because they stimulate a healing response and new collagen deposition. (neocollagenesis). PDO threads are absorbable and dissolve naturally over time. As they dissolve, they stimulate the skin to produce more natural collagen and elastin.

What Can Be Achieved With a Thread Lift?

Though not as dramatic as a surgical facelift, thread facelifts can be used to restore many ageing facial concerns, including skin tightening, smoothing wrinkles, improving skin texture, volumising to improve facial contours as well as lifting sagging skin.

  • Mono PDO threads are used for early sagging or preventive measures in younger women.
  • A barbed thread lift provided a more dramatic lifting impact and indicated more pronounced facial sagging and can be used to tighten jowl, jawline, neck, and body areas.

Who is the Ideal Candidate for a PDO Thread Lift?

  • The best candidate is between 35 and 55 years of age, though it is not restricted.
  • If there is too much loose skin, then surgery may be a better option.
  • Thread lifts can be used to top up Facelifts.

Indications for a PDO Thread Lift:

At Pearl Medispa, our Doctors perform:

  1. PDO thread lift or jowl lift.
  2. Jawline slimming – fat reduction & skin tightening.
  3. Chin tightening – for an early double chin or sagging skin.
  4. Neck and decolletage treatment – wrinkles & lines, sun damage & sagging skin.
  5. Under-eye circles – eye thread lift.
  6. Brow forehead lifts – eyebrow thread lift for brow drooping.
  7. Nose reshaping – PDO nose thread lift or HIKKO nose lift
  8. Lip wrinkle treatment – lip thread lift.
  9. Lift Sagging facial skin – non-surgical facelift combines barbed, floating and double screw. PDO threads can be used alongside dermal fillers techniques and anti-wrinkle injections.

Thread Lift Results

  1. A discrete lifting.
  2. More jawline definition through the lifting of the jowls.
  3. More youthful cheek curves as facial volume are pulled up.
  4. Softening of nasolabial and marionette folds.
  5. Smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles across cheeks and lower face.
  6. Overall improvement in facial contours and skin tone.
  7. Lifting of sagging neck skin with a thread neck lift.

MINT Thread Facelift-  Mini Facelift

  • A mini facelift is performed with a local anaesthetic as a lunchtime procedure. You can resume most of your normal activities. (There are some exceptions. Strenuous exercise, excessive facial movement and adopting an altered sleeping posture which our doctors will explain fully)
  • There is no surgery and no scars, but expect bruising.
  • The absorbable threads break down slowly over time ( about 18 months) and, in the process, stimulate collagen production.

PDO Threads Safety Profile?

PDO is a synthetic fibre called polydioxanone that has been used for many years in plastic and general and cardiac surgery. The use as absorbable threads in aesthetics followed decades of application and is believed to be safe. However, people can react to these threads (rare)  as they are generally non-allergenic and fully biodegradable. Common side effects are minor and temporary, including bruising, swelling and altered sensation.

PDO thread lift treatments are a relatively new approach for tightening and refreshing your face, neck, decolletage, and body. They are used to lift and tighten sagging skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. PDO thread lift induces the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid for a more youthful glow.  Since their development in Korea, PDO threads has expanded treatment potential, including a range of novel treatment areas. :

    • Nose thread lift
    • Eye thread lift
    • Eyebrow thread lift
    • Lip thread lift
    • Jawline sculpting
    • Neckline treatment
    • Decolletage wrinkle treatment
    • Body skin tightening

How do PDO threads work?

PDO Threads are becoming increasingly popular because they are an effective non-surgical way to tighten and lift sagging skin tissue and dissolve small fat areas on the lower face and body. The mode of action is multipronged depending on the type of thread used and the placement.

Lifting of sagging skin – best achieved with barbed PDO threads, although mono threads (smooth) also achieve some lifting through a unique effect of pulling skin tissue back onto the face. (the effects of gravity pull the skin down, and it falls forward – remarkable fact). Specialised techniques applied to eyebrow and oral commissure can also achieve lifting with the use of mono threads.

Armouring of fine lines and wrinkles. Small, medium and longer mono threads placed in a lattice pattern along vector lines on the face can immediately diminish fine lines and wrinkles and pull back sagging. However, as they are absorbed over the coming weeks, the actual impact from the natural production of collagen and other products results in progressive improvement.

Inducing lipolysis (fat cell death) by placement into small fat deposits causes a sculpting effect to sharpen jawline and stubborn body deposits. Because this also generates collagen, it has an additional tightening effect.

Volumising of grooves and lines or for lip and nose enhancement. Double screw PDO threads consist of two threads wound around each other. When placed under the skin, the threads unwind or lose and are used under grooves such as tear trough, nasolabial or any other depression; you will see a volumising effect without filler.

What to Expect With PDO Mono Thread Lifts

Several factors can affect the result of PDO thread lift and things you can do to improve the outcome. Age, health, diet, lifestyle and smoking impact skin inflammation and your skin immune function. Diet and the gut-skin axis are responsible for upstream cell health and activity. By positively impacting your gut health, you can reduce systemic inflammation and improve your skin’s ability to heal and produce collagen.

We recommend the GEMM protocol for optimum gut health, Defencell, which contains sulforaphane and a range of vitamins, minerals, and trace elements essential for skin health. These include vitamin D, zinc, B vitamins, and melon derived glisodin to supercharge your innate antioxidant function. (sulforaphane capable of upregulating protective genes which help reduce inflammation, improve immunity and cell function). In addition, supplemental collagen powder, prebiotic powder (florgenex), and plant-derived immunebiotics or metabolic modulators will have your skin cells primed for optimal response.

Smoking harms cell function, and the outcome of all aesthetic procedures is compromised.

Thread consultation with our Doctors + skin analysis with our therapists. This is compulsory, and we cannot proceed with further treatment unless we obtain a baseline.

Complimentary skin analysis is performed before our medical consultations.

  • We will also gather information on your current skincare (do not worry, we will not make you throw out existing skincare but could recommend some additions)
  • We are huge on barrier repair as this not only assists in your skins ability to respond to treatments but decreases the risk of many adverse outcomes.

Confidential assessment with our doctors of your concerns.

  • They will come up with a recommended plan according to your goals.
  • Go over what is involved in the procedure.
  • Provide a written quote
  • Answer any questions
  • You will leave you with advice on supplements that will optimise your results, recommended skincare and a PDO thread lift plan with a written quote. This will give you knowledge of how it will work, what to expect, and possible side effects to enable you to make an informed decision.
  • Though we do not recommend skipping supplements and skincare, these are not compulsory unless you have a specific condition we need to settle. See preparing your skin step 2.

Time: 15-minute skin analysis, 30-minute face assessment and planning.

If you are considering a thread lift, you want your skin to be primed to respond optimally.

We will recommend barrier repair treatments and collagen-stimulating products if required for skin and gut.

  • Barrier repair cream. (topical niacinamide with 1:1:1 ratio )
  • Collagen stimulating supplements – collagen powder + omega three oils + vitamin A cream topically.
  • Gut healing to decrease inflammation, improve immune response and optimise gut-skin axis—cell logic Defencell, prebiotic Floragenex & Plant-based Immunebiotics or Metabolic modulators. Our Naturopath dispenses these.

Timeframe:  If your skin is in excellent condition, you can proceed immediately. Generally, two weeks is required or if more severe inflammation and signs of gut dysbiosis, waiting six weeks may be appropriate.

  • Before photos are taken, these are compulsory for baseline.  (sometimes, people allow us to use their before and after photos, however, we will always get signed permission from you before we do this.)
  • We will provide numbing ½ hours before treatment.
  • Depending on the PDO treatment, this will take ½ hour to 2 hours.

There will be bruising.

  • We can apply cold to assist.
  • We can also treat the bruising with our BBL and post-treatment cream.
  • Your skin will feel tight.
  • Over the next 1-3 days, you may experience swelling.
  • Sometimes the threads can be visible underneath the skin as a thin blue line.
  • You can wear oxygenetix healing makeup from the next day.

The results slowly develop over the coming six weeks, with optimal results expected at 3 – 6 months. As the PDO threads are reabsorbed, they naturally stimulate your skin. There may be some immediate lifting and tightening or volumising effect, but the best outcome develops with time.

Depending on the PDO thread lift, these last up to 2 years. This is improved by continued use of collagen-stimulating supplements and maintaining optimum gut health. However, some people elect earlier retreatment for an added benefit (with more advanced aging)  or yearly top-up. Our doctors will explain this expectation.

Preparation for Treatment:

Advise collagen supplements, plus gut-healing supplements and omega-three oils to maximise treatment outcomes. 

A local anaesthetic is used.


Immediate tightening, but actual results develop from 6 weeks with outcome maximal: 6 months

Time for the procedure:

10 minutes to 1hour

Possible Complications: 

Bruising, swelling, infection (rare)  allergic reaction (infrequent)

Can resume regular activity immediately

1-week full recovery

Can wear Oxygenetix make up the next day

Optimise results by taking supplements that assist collagen/ elastin & hyaluronic acid production – collagen powder, zinc, vitamin D, B vitamins + gut healing, ensuring the gut – skin axis optimised, inflammation under control, and immune system functioning.
