A PDO thread lift is an innovative treatment that involves the insertion of thread into the skin for a rejuvenated and lifted result. At Bay Medical Aesthetics, we use PDO threads in Bayside to help address a range of concerns on the face and body. Our doctor-led clinic uses two different types of quality Matrix PDO Threads to achieve the results you desire.
Matrix PDO Threads are made from PDO, short for polydioxanone. This is a biodegradable polymer that has been used for internal sutures for more than 50 years, and for aesthetic purposes since 2011. PDO is safely absorbed into the body through a process known as hydrolysis, which takes approximately 180-200 days.
Matrix PDO Threads are available in two types: Mono Threads and Long COG Threads

If you’re looking for a treatment that tightens and thickens the skin and provides a subtle lift, a PDO thread lift could be right for you. PDO thread lifts are capable of targeting a range of areas on the face and body, making them worthwhile if you’re looking for an effective targeted treatment with minimal downtime.
Yes, PDO threads continue to lift even after the biodegradable threads begin to break down. This is due to the stimulation of collagen in the skin, which can continue to lift and tighten the skin for up to 12 months.
You can continue to move your face in a normal fashion after getting PDO thread lifts, and this includes smiling. However, it’s recommended that you avoid exaggerated facial movements when talking, chewing or yawning for 3 weeks after the treatment.
The results of PDO threads have been known to last 6-12 months. This can depend on lifestyle factors and the area being treated. Repeat treatment at our Bayside clinic may be necessary at the 6 month mark in order to maintain results.
