What Is a PDO Thread Lift?
Have the telltale signs of aging started showing in your jawline or around your eyes or mouth? The skin on your face often ages much earlier than the rest of your body. A PDO Thread Lift is a low-risk, affordable method to restore more youthful contours.
The PDO Thread Lift is a nonsurgical facelift. Absorbable threads are strategically placed just under the skin to lift sagging facial features while easing fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment is typically completed in under an hour and you can immediately return to your daily routine.
What Are PDO Threads Made Of?
PDO stands for polydioxanone, a flexible polymer that your body can safely tolerate and absorb. Thanks to these polydioxanone sutures, patients can experience the benefits of a facelift without undergoing facial plastic surgery.
How Does a PDO Thread Lift
Ease the Signs of Aging?
Using hypodermic needles, Dr. Lewis-Heywood strategically positions the PDO threads just under the surface of the skin to support sagging facial features.
In a few short months, the sutures dissolve and are replaced by fresh collagen, one of our body's fundamental building blocks. In about three months, the collagen creates a natural scaffold to lift the skin, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and improve elasticity.
A thread lift is a fast and minimally invasive way to refresh your profile, however, the results are not as dramatic as a surgical facelift. The results of a thread lift typically last up to three years while a facelift lasts about 10 years.
We Tailor Treatment
to Your Problem Areas
Dr. Lewis-Heywood customizes treatment based on your unique skin type, skin texture, and aesthetic goals. The number and type of PDO threads used will be tailored to your facial needs.
For maximum rejuvenation, patients can pair a thread lift with other treatments offered by Dr. Lewis-Heywood, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers.
Problem areas that PDO Thread Lifts treat include:
- Jowls and jawline
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Crow's feet
- Acne scars

Don't confuse today's PDO Thread Lift with the thread lifts banned in 2009. That older method used nonbiodegradable string, which caused numerous problems.
The procedure used at Riverside Dental Center & Beauty Spa in Rio Rancho, NM, uses FDA-approved V Soft Lift® absorbable threads made out of PDO, which prevents the problems associated with permanent threads. PDO is the same biocompatible material surgeons have used in dissolvable sutures for decades.
Dr. Barbara Lewis-Heywood received specialized training for thread lifts from the American Association of Facial Esthetics (AAFE) to bring this affordable and minimally invasive treatment to patients in Rio Rancho and Albuquerque.
When Will I See Results? How Long Will My Results Last?
For maximum benefits, Dr. Lewis-Heywood can enhance your results with BOTOX Cosmetic and dermal fillers.
Something to Keep in Mind About PDO Thread Lifts
A PDO Thread Lift can be thought of both as an early treatment and a cost-effective facelift alternative. The sooner one starts this collagen-stimulating process, the longer the natural aging process can be delayed.
How Much Does a PDO Thread Lift Cost?
The cost of a PDO Thread Lift is significantly less than a surgical facelift and varies depending on the number of areas you want to treat and how many threads are needed. For more exact pricing, please request a free consultation. We'll go over your aesthetic goals and create a treatment plan tailored to your needs. In addition to flexible financing plans, we also offer late and weekend appointments to make treatment convenient.
