PDO Thread Lift

Maryland Plastic Surgeon serving Washington DC, & Virginia including Alexandria and Fairfax.


Bella Cosmetic Surgery now offers the PDO thread lift, nonsurgical procedure that lifts loose facial and neck skin. This procedure is minimally invasive and results in almost no downtime. It is one of the many facial rejuvenation solutions offered by our medical spa.

As part of the aging process, our facial support structure becomes weaker and we lose volume in the facial region. This can result in sagging, loose skin and jowls. The PDO thread lift provides one of the most effective nonsurgical solutions to lift loose skin. If you’re not ready to undergo a surgical facelift or simply prefer a more minimally invasive option, the PDO thread lift may be right for you.

You can learn about your facial rejuvenation options and receive individualized treatment recommendations by speaking with Dr. Chiaramonte in person. Please call 301-567-6767 today to schedule a consultation. We serve patients in Maryland, Washington DC and Northern Virginia.

How Does the PDO Thread Lift Work?

woman receiving PDO thread lift treatment to reverse the signs of facial agingThe PDO thread lift uses Polydioxanone threads to lift and tighten sagging skin tissue. These threads integrate with your skin to stimulate collagen production and provide an improved support structure for the underlying tissue.

Once these threads have integrated with the deeper layers of your skin, they will provide several important rejuvenating benefits:

  • Cellular rejuvenation due to the increased collagen production
  • Skin lifting and tightening
  • Neovascularization that will improve skin texture and elasticity
  • Reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

While the PDO thread lift is most commonly performed to reverse the signs of facial aging, it can deliver effective results in a variety of areas, including the:

  • Forehead
  • Cheeks
  • Jaw line
  • Neck
  • Nasolabial folds (lines extending from the nose to the mouth)
  • Marionette lines (lines extending down from the corners of your mouth)
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Arms

Your PDO Thread Lift Treatment

Local anesthetic is applied to the treatment region to minimize discomfort. Dr. Chiaramonte will use a thin, hollow tube (cannula) or a microneedle to insert the PDO thread into the treatment area. These threads will instantly anchor the skin and provide lifting benefits. Dr. Chiaramonte will then cut off any excess threads. The entire procedure can be completed within 15-30 minutes.

The PDO threads will be safely absorbed by your body after about 6 months. Due to the cellular regeneration benefits of the procedure, your lifted facial contours will maintain their improved appearance for another 3-6 months after the threads are absorbed.

Benefits of a PDO Thread Lift

The PDO thread lift offers several important benefits compared with surgical options such as a facelift:

  • Minimally invasive
  • Virtually no recovery and downtime
  • Avoids the use of general anesthesia
  • No scarring
  • No bruising or bleeding
  • More affordable facial rejuvenation solution
