PDO Thread Lifts in Farmington Hills, MI
A Nonsurgical Alternative to a Facelift
Now you can fight the signs of aging with natural results with our PDO thread treatment here in Farmington Hills, MI. PDO threading is a minimally invasive alternative to a facelift.
PDO threads are among the latest aesthetic treatment options for nonsurgical skin lifting and tightening. Threads themselves, however, have been used for decades to address other medical concerns, such as suturing minor surgical incisions or treating certain gynecological disorders. But once it was discovered PDO threads could provide substantial skin lifting and tightening through a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure, it was a game changer for medical aesthetics. In fact, until PDO threads came along, the most effective way to address facial skin laxity was with a surgical facelift
How Does PDO Threading Work?
A PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive technique that utilizes ultra-thin threads of polydioxanone (PDO) strategically inserted under the skin to gently reposition tissue in a targeted area to increase volume and improve elasticity. These temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle yet visible “lift” in the skin.
A highly trained provider simply suspends your skin by stitching up portions of it with the PDO threads. The threads also stimulate the body’s healing response and causes large surges of collagen directed to treated areas. Collagen plays a vital role as one of the main building blocks of youthful looking skin. Over time, the threads dissolve but leave smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin behind for you to enjoy for months on end.
PDO threading is a procedure that utilizes extremely thin threads of polydioxanone that are inserted underneath the skin. This helps with repositioning the tissue in a way that improves elasticity and volume. This is what helps to visibly lift the skin.
- Topical & local anesthetics will be applied to areas being treated
- The threads will then be inserted under the skin, with no incisions or cuts, but instead, use a hollow needle to support & lift droopy areas without removing any skin.
- The hollow needle is then removed while the lifting threads are secured. No scars are left behind.

- More affordable option than a traditional facelift
- Personalized treatment to meet your unique needs

How do PDO threads compare to a surgical facelift?
While a PDO thread lift won’t produce results as dramatic as a surgical facelift, it can provide very noticeable outcomes for people with mild to moderate skin laxity. Targeted treatments may help resolve issues of concern to address signs of aging generally experienced by people in their 30s to mid 50s. Advanced signs of aging may require more invasive procedures, such as a facelift, to address your concerns (generally for people 55 and older). Eman Dahmani, APRN, CRNA, will go over your individual aesthetic goals during your consultation to determine the best aesthetic route for you.
