PDO Threads | Instant Non-Surgical Facelift

Thread lifting with PDO threads is the minimally invasive procedure that uses absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) barbed sutures. This treatment instantly lifts facial skin and progressively adds volume to the mid-face region.

PDO threads are a popular non-surgical facelift option and are FDA cleared. Not only do PDO threads improve the appearance of sagging skin, but the PDO also promotes collagen stimulation and neovascularization to enhance skin elasticity and texture. It also reduces the appearance of fine lines and adds facial volume.
If you want to turn back the clock and achieve a naturally youthful, defined appearance, contact Seamist Medspa. We are a premier provider of MINT PDO thread lifts in the South Kingstown and Newport areas. Call us at 401-784-2400 to schedule a complimentary consultation to learn more about thread lifts.

PDO Threads Before and After*

The PDO thread lift before and after images show the dramatic facelift results possible with this minimally invasive thread lift procedure. As with any cosmetic procedure, results will vary per patient.* However, each patient achieves a noticeably more youthful, defined appearance with less sagging skin.


PDO sutures are the latest revolutionary treatment for skin tightening and lifting. The threads are made of PDO (polydioxanone) material. Unlike other threads used for thread lifting, PDO threads are uniquely absorbable and improve skin sagging. The PDO threads continuously stimulate collagen synthesis under the skin. When the thread is inserted into the skin, it acts as a “scaffold” for the skin. The threads “hold” up the skin against the effects of gravity and aging.

Thread lifting improves the appearance of sagging facial skin and redefines mid-facial contours in two ways:

Immediate Lifting

Thread lifting is considered a non-surgical facelift because it provides dramatic, immediate lifting of the mid-face tissue. Results of a PDO thread lift are similar to a surgical facelift. However, instead of removing excess skin, PDO thread lifting suspends the skin with barbed sutures, pulling the skin up and back for an instant, tightening effect.

Gradual Volume

Thread lifting with PDO threads also provides progressive results that gradually restore volume by triggering the production of collagen and neovascularization. This results in the restoration of volume and contour as well as produces an overall more youthful appearance. Best of all, the anti-aging results are natural-looking and long-lasting.

A thread lift procedure with PDO threads takes, on average, an hour but can last anywhere between 45 minutes to 90 minutes. Patients will see immediate results afterward. Results can last for up to 1 year after the lift. It is recommended that patients consult with their provider before the PDO thread lift to discuss the look and results they can expect to achieve.

Thankfully, with this non-surgical facelift procedure, you do not have to wait weeks or months to see results. While results may vary per patient, most see almost immediate skin enhancements from their MINT PDO lift. Common results include:

  • More youthful appearance
  • Heart-shaped, higher cheekbone contours
  • Cat-eye contour
  • Tighter jaw line
  • Softer smile lines
  • Softer eyebrows
  • Smoothes out neck lines

MINT PDO thread is made from the complex sugar polydioxanone. This material is a safe suture material that has been used in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgeries for over 30 years. Not only that, but MINT PDO threads are also backed by more than six years of published safety studies. It is also the first and only PDO suture in the US to achieve dual FDA clearances.

Unfortunately, a PDO thread lift is not for everyone. For the most dramatic results, the perfect candidate is someone with a skin layer that is not too thin or too thick, or uneven. The skin should be thin enough so the PDO can make a visible difference and thick enough so that the threads are not too close to the skin’s surface.

The best way to determine if a thread lift with PDO thread is right for you is by scheduling a complimentary consultation. During your consultation, you can speak with a knowledgeable, licensed specialist about this particular thread lift. The specialist can evaluate your skin, listen to your aesthetic desires, and then determine if a thread lift with PDO threads is right for you.
