PDO Threads, a revolutionary non-surgical cosmetic procedure, has gained prominence in aesthetic enhancements. It is a cosmetic treatment that helps to lift and tighten sagging skin. It involves inserting special threads of absorbable material into the skin to achieve the desired effect. Designed to stimulate collagen production, PDO Threads work by encouraging the skin’s natural processes. The procedure is versatile and suitable for addressing various areas, such as the face, neck, and body. Ideal candidates for PDO Threads are individuals seeking a non-invasive solution for mild to moderate skin laxity.

Results from PDO Threads are often visible immediately, with continued improvements over several weeks as collagen production is stimulated. Patients can enjoy a refreshed appearance for up to 18 months with PDO Threads, a long-lasting and effective option without the downtime of surgery. We provide top-notch PDO Threads treatments at Elko Replenish Med Spa in Elko, NV. Ready to enhance your natural beauty?

Thread lift procedures typically utilize three types of sutures: PDO (polydioxanone), PLA (polylactic acid), and PCA (polycaprolactone).

PDO threads have a long history of use in medical procedures since the 1980s. They are composed of a clear polyester that safely dissolves in the body after about six months. The presence of PDO sutures in the skin stimulates fibroblasts, the cells needed for collagen production. Collagen is essential for maintaining skin’s structure, health, and elasticity, and its depletion is a major factor in skin aging.

PDO threads are categorized into:

● PDO mono threads: Smooth sutures that enhance skin rejuvenation by boosting collagen production.
● PDO cog threads: These have barbed surfaces that grip the skin, providing support and lifting specific facial areas.
● PDO screw threads: Made of one or two intertwined threads, these are used to replenish volume in sunken areas of the skin.


PLA and PCA threads have a longer lifespan in the body than PDO threads and induce a greater collagen response. PLA threads take about twelve months to be absorbed, while PCA threads take twelve to fifteen months.

Each thread type has its specific applications. For instance, PDO threads are ideal for repositioning and revitalizing tissue, whereas PLA and PCA threads are more suited for lifting sagging skin.

Here are the optimal thread choices based on the desired outcome:

● For skin rejuvenation or tightening: PDO mono
● For a moderate facelift: PDO cog or screw
● For a moderate facelift with improved texture and elasticity: PLA or PCA
● For a significant facelift: Surgical facelift


Before your PDO threading procedure at Elko Replenish Med Spa, it’s important to prepare properly. Refrain from consuming alcohol and smoking for at least five days prior. Also, avoid substances that could increase the risk of bleeding or bruising, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, omega-3 fatty acids, and green tea extracts. Your physician will discuss potential complications and the recovery process with you before the procedure.

The PDO threading procedure typically involves the following steps:

1. You will be seated in a reclined position, and your physician will cleanse your face with alcohol.
2. A local anesthetic will be applied using a needle to numb the area.
3. Your doctor will then make a small incision and insert a cannula (a thin tube) into the opening.
4. The thread will be anchored in place, and the cannula will be removed.
5. The thread will be trimmed and secured.

After the procedure, you can usually go home shortly thereafter.


Recovery from a PDO thread lift is generally quick. You may experience some swelling and bruising in the first couple of days, but most daily activities can be resumed immediately. To ensure the best results during the first week after your procedure, avoid rubbing your face to prevent dislodging the thread. Refrain from smoking, using a straw, and puckering your lips. It’s also advisable to avoid sleeping on your side, engaging in intense physical activities, and visiting saunas for one to two weeks. To prevent rolling onto your face while sleeping, use a pillow to prop up your head.
