PDO & PLLA Threads
PDO and PLLA threads give your face and neck an instant lift without surgery. Threads are also called “lunchtime lifts” because they produce results with only a short, minimally invasive procedure.
Before & After
The patient had a lower face and neck lift with threads.
Types of Threads We Use
PDO (polydioxanone) sutures are one of the safest materials that can be implanted in the body. They are routinely used in surgery, including open-heart surgery.
PLLA (Poly-L Lactic Acid)
PLLA (Poly-L Lactic Acid) creates a self-healing response that’s supported by your own collagen.
Frequently Asked Questions
Threads tighten sagging skin and replace lost skin volume by promoting collagen production. We use threads at Face-Time Aesthetics to:
- Give an instant lift to sagging skin without surgery
- Promote collagen and elastin production
- Erase fine lines and wrinkles
- Eliminate a sagging or double chin caused by aging
Are threads the same as a facelift?
No. Threads are not a replacement for surgery.
What is recovery like?
You should see instant results that will continue to improve over time and will last up to a year or longer.
How long do results last?
You should see results for about 8–9 months, but collagen will last for over a year. Your body will absorb the suture thread, which won’t leave scar tissue.
