PDO Thread Lift
Ageless Aesthetics MediSpa has offered advanced thread lift procedures for Face & Body transformations since 2016 and was the first in the state of KY to train on this advanced technology.
Benefits of Ageless Lyft
The Ageless Lyft uses PDO, which is a material that has been used for Cardiac surgery for over 35 years. The Ageless Lyft stimulates neocollagenesis which encourages the production of collagen in our skin.
The Ageless Lyft can be used around the face and neck typically used for wrinkles on the forehead, saggy brows, droopy cheeks, sagging Jawlines and neck folds. This revolutionary Lyft is done with ONLY needles to tighten loose and sagging skin WITHOUT surgery.

After treatment you will be immediately lifted, the results will improve over the next few weeks. The remarkable results will last for more than a year!
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the PDO Thread Lift?
The PDO Thread Lift is a treatment which lifts and tightens sagging skin tissue, using threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO). The threads introduces them into the deeper layers of the skin. Once introduced, the threads produce 3 effects in the skin.
– Instant skin lifting through mechanical effects
– Cellular Renewal, through Collagen stimulation, improves skin texture, fine lines and elasticitin
– Skin Tightening, by contracting fat tissue
How Is Thread Lifting Done?
A PDO Thread Lift is a minimally invasive procedure. After numbing and infusion of local anesthetia, the PDO threads are inserted via sharp or blunt tip needles (called cannulas) into different layers of the skin. Once inserted, the threads anchor the skin and lift it upwards. The excess threads are then cut off.
Depending on the areas treated, the procedure takes 15-30 minutes. There is minimal discomfort during the proceudre, but because of the improved techniques my patients are experiencing less and less pain. We also offer “PRONOX” gas for anxiety or discomfort.
Is PDO Thread Lift Safe? What are the Possible Side Effects?
This treatment is surprisingly safe. Compared to fillers, the side effects are, in fact, much milder (fillers can even cause skin death and blindness). Because PDO threads are inserted via needles and not surgery, and are absorbed in 6-8 months, many of the side effects associated with older thread lifting procedures, such as infection and thread breakage are also minimised.
What Results Can I Expect After The Treatment? How Long Do They Last?
Your skin is immediately lifted after a PDO thread lifting procedure, as the threads provde support to lift skin in its new position. You may look slightly tighter than the final result, but in about 1 week, you will begin to look much more natural.
The rejuvenative effects kick in after 1-2 months – you will notice better skin texture, firmer and smoother skin. Your doctor may concentrate more on either skin rejuvenation, or skin lifting during your procedure. Depending on the technique and which is used, the results will vary from person to person.
In about 9 months after the treatment, the threads would have dissolved, but the results will still continue for many more months. I recommend repeating the procedure 6-9 months after the first procedure, to allow for a long lasting result of up to 3 years.
