A polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift is a cosmetic procedure that promotes skin rejuvenation. This FDA-approved treatment effectively lifts and tightens skin, leaving clients looking more youthful and feeling confident. This approach serves as an incision-free alternative to regular facelift surgery for clients seeking a less aggressive option.
PDO thread lifts can target multiple areas of the face experiencing noticeable signs of aging, including the cheeks, jaw, neck, and eyes.
