Thread Lift Q&A

What are PDO threads?

A polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift is a nonsurgical alternative to a face lift if you’re showing moderate signs of aging but aren’t ready to undergo surgery. Luxbae uses European threads, which your medical spa provider injects beneath your skin. These dissolvable threads firm and tighten your skin to lift and tighten areas with lost volume.

How do PDO threads work?

PDO threads are injectable, meaning they require no incisions to place. The European threads that Luxbae uses are the same ones that a surgeon places for dissolvable sutures. Once injected through a hypodermic needle, the threads provide support for your skin’s structure. They lift and tighten the skin but also stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. 


As new collagen and elastin form around the threads the volume in your skin, your face appears firmer and more youthful. The threads eventually dissolve once the new collagen and elastin take their place.

What can PDO threads treat?

Your medical spa provider can lift and tighten your face and neck with PDO threads to restore lost volume. Most people see their best results in the lower areas of the face, like the cheeks and jowls. A PDO thread lift may be right for you to treat:


  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sagging jowls
  • Weak jawline
  • Drooping cheeks
  • Skin laxity around the neck
  • Crêpe-like décolletage
  • Perioral lines (smoker’s lines)


PDO threads can target multiple cosmetic concerns at once by improving your facial contours and skin quality.

What can I expect from PDO threads?

PDO threads provide instant results. You can see the difference in the tone and texture of your skin right away. Most clients notice that their skin appears firmer and more rejuvenated when they leave Luxbae. However, you will continue to see improvements over the next few weeks as your European threads continue to stimulate new collagen.


Within about two months, any fine lines and wrinkles toward the lower part of your face start to soften and relax due to the new collagen growth.

How long do PDO threads last?

While injectable neuromodulators and fillers typically wear off within three months to one year, PDO threads can last for up to 18 months. You can extend your results by combining your treatment with fillers, Botox®, chemical peels, and other aesthetic treatments.
