PDO Thread Lifting
POLYDIOXANONE (PDO) THREADS are the latest and greatest option in the world of non-surgical face (and body) lifts. These threads – manufactured by Nova Threads – have been approved for cosmetic use in the US since roughly 2014 and are made of the same type of material used in dissolvable surgical sutures.
When placed just under the surface of the skin using a common local anesthetic, they accomplish three things: they stimulate the production of collagen, create stability and structure of the tissues, and provide a mild to moderate lift of the skin. Nova Threads are ideal for those clients who either don’t yet qualify for a surgical facelift or who don’t want to go under the knife but are suffering from inevitable signs of premature aging such as sagging eyelids, flattening of the eyebrows, loss of volume within the mid-face region leading to sunken cheekbones, loose or saggy skin, jowls or decreased definition of the jawline, increase in the appearance of folds around the mouth, and double chin or appearance of a “turkey neck”.
Additionally, Nova Threads are very effective in lifting other areas of the body including the décolleté, breasts, upper arms, abdomen, buttocks, upper legs/hips, and the region over the knee. Threading is quick, virtually painless and has no associated downtime, making it an ideal option for those busy clients who are looking for a more cost-effective option to anti-aging without the downtime, expense, and potential complications associated with surgery.
To schedule your procedure, you’ll first need to have a consultation with one of our providers which will allow us to determine if you’re a good candidate and provide an accurate quote customized to your needs. Once your preliminary consultation is complete, the procedure will be scheduled and we will ask for a non-refundable $500 deposit no later than 1 week prior to your appointment; this will be applied to your ending balance after your threading is complete.
In general, pricing ranges from $500-$1500 per area threaded. As with all medical aesthetic, in office, procedures, thread lifting is temporary, with results lasting anywhere from 1-2 years.
Average Pricing by Area**:
Lower 2/3 of the Face – $2,000 +/- $500
Neck/JawLine – $1,500 +/- $500
Lower Face + Neck/Jawline – $3,000 +/- $500
Lips – $500

**Pricing ultimately depends on how many threads are needed to accomplish a satisfactory result. Pricing noted above is an average and should not be considered standard for all clients as this procedure is very indiviudalized.
