What are Lifting Threads?

Lifting threads provide immediate results that continue to improve over the six months post-procedure. The cuts or striations in these threads provide lifting properties. When placed under the skin, they catch the tissue and hold it in place, creating a visible lift. At the same time, the threads promote collagen regeneration to revitalize the skin and, over time, create a natural fullness. Lifting threads are used for a non-surgical facelift.

Effective for:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Drooping jowls
  • Marionette lines
  • Overall signs of aging

Mint PDO Thread Lift

The MINT PDO Thread Lift is a non-surgical option for those who want the benefits of a facelift without going through a surgical procedure. The procedure improves the appearance of sagging skin and delivers a youthful look without painful or extended recovery. Valley Medical Weight Loss uses MINT threads for our PDO thread lifts in Phoenix, Tempe, and Glendale. MINT PDO threads are dissolvable sutures made of absorbable polydioxanone (PDO).  We offer two types of PDO threads: Smooth and lifting. 

MINT threads stand out from any other thread options because of the barbs that hold the suture in place. Additionally, MINT threads are the only FDA-approved threads for facial tissue fixation. These threads are stronger and deliver a longer-lasting lift than other types of threads. And on top of that, they cause minimal tissue reaction and trauma during the procedure. The MINT PDO thread is backed by over 6 years of clinical studies for safety and efficacy. It is the only PDO suture with two FDA clearances.

Who is a Good Candidate for a PDO Thread Lift?

PDO threads are a good fit for those who:

  • Want a facelift without going under the knife
  • Want subtle and natural end results
  • Want a quick and relatively painless procedure 
  • Desire long-lasting results

Silhouette Instalift® The next generation of facial threads

Silhouette Instalift involves longer-lasting threads to address sagging skin in the mid-lower face. These threads differ from PDO not only in structure and shape but in their raw materials. They contain a long-lasting collagen stimulator known as poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), the same compound used for decades in Sculptra®.

The threads use tiny bidirectional cones to lift the skin rather than the barbed cones used in PDO threads. PLLA thread results are instant, with full results maximized at 6-12 weeks. On average, results last for 18 months to 2 years.

Pro-Nox Comfort Management

If you’re interested in receiving a PDO Thread Lift but you are concerned about discomfort and anxiety during the procedure, the Pro-Nox pain management system may be the ideal solution. Pro-Nox is a safe and effective form of anesthesia that consists of nitrous oxide (laughing gas) released by the patient through a mouthpiece. The N2O is flushed out of the system within minutes, making it a superior choice to oral pain medications that may interfere with driving ability. With Pro-Nox, you can reduce the stress associated with cosmetic procedures, allowing you to reap the benefits of your aesthetic treatments without the hassle.

The PDO Thread Lift Process

  • When you arrive for your procedure, you always get one-on-one attention from our providers, who specialize in PDO threads and other aesthetic procedures.
  • You’ll get to discuss your health history, current concerns, and goals, so we can determine if PDO threads are the right option for you.
  • If you’re new to PDO threads, we review the process from start to end for your treatment.
  • The procedure starts with local anesthesia.
  • Your provider will insert the dissolvable threads under the skin to create an immediate and natural-looking lift.
  • Depending on the area, the procedure will take from 70 to 90 minutes.
  • After your procedure, you’ll be able to leave and return to your life, as usual, the next day.
  • Soreness may result from the placement of the threads, and some patients experience minor bruising or swelling, but these side effects typically resolve within a few days.
