Your Ultimate Guide to PDO Thread Lifts – Facial Rejuvenation 101

As summer winds down and the holiday season approaches, it’s entirely natural to start thinking about family gatherings, parties, and reconnecting with old faces. Among those familiar faces, you may catch a glimpse of your own reflection. You may even start to think, “maybe it’s time to update my look,” as the festive season draws near. 

Before the holidays swing into full gear, you might be considering a facelift. But traditional facelifts are often pricey, involve extensive downtime, and don’t always yield the natural-looking results you desire. Enter: PDO Threads—a perfect, minimally invasive way to rejuvenate your appearance for years to come.

The Pursuit of a Youthful Appearance

Many of us desire a youthful and refreshed look, regardless of the season. But as we age, our skin’s natural collagen production slows, leading to sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. 

Traditional facelifts have been a go-to solution for achieving a more youthful appearance, but they come with their share of drawbacks. At ALo Medica in Eustis, FL, you have other, more suitable options. Learn more about PDO thread lifts and give us a call at 352-290-6200 or contact us online to schedule your consultation!

The Downsides of Traditional Facelifts

Surgical facelift procedures are often thought about as the unchallenged king of facial rejuvenation treatments. But in reality, these expensive surgical procedures have numerous drawbacks. 

Everything from your goals to the skill of your chosen surgeon can impact both the safety and the ultimate results of your facelift procedure. Here are just a few of the other common downsides associated with this form of plastic surgery.

  • High Cost: The cost of a facelift can quickly climb to $10,000 or more. Naturally, more affordable options exist. But a bargain-bin surgery probably isn’t on your to-do list.
  • Extensive Downtime: Recovery from a traditional facelift can involve weeks of downtime, pain, setbacks, and other uncomfortable symptoms..
  • Invasive Surgery: Regardless of your provider’s surgical skill, facelifts are fully invasive procedures with inherent risks. Scars should be expected, regardless of how well hidden they may be.
  • Unnatural Results: In some cases, facelifts can produce unnatural-looking results, leaving individuals dissatisfied with their appearance. Unlike other, minimally or non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatments, facelifts are not reversible.

The Rise of PDO Threads

Polydioxanone (PDO) threads have emerged as a revolutionary alternative to traditional facelifts. These threads are made from a biocompatible material that has been used for years in various medical applications, including surgery.

How PDO Threads Work and the Benefits

Learn about an alternative to facelifts that fits your lifestyle and comfort level. 

Minimally Invasive

PDO thread treatments are celebrated for their minimally invasive nature. Unlike traditional facelifts that require extensive incisions and surgical procedures, PDO threads involve only minor incisions or needle insertions. 

This makes them an attractive option for individuals seeking facial rejuvenation without the risks and recovery time associated with invasive surgery. The minimally invasive approach minimizes discomfort during the procedure and reduces the likelihood of scarring.

Collagen Stimulation

One of the key mechanisms behind the effectiveness of PDO threads is their ability to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. Collagen is a structural protein responsible for maintaining skin elasticity, firmness, healing, and an overall youthful appearance. 

As a biodegradable cosmetic implant, PDO threads lift soft tissue under the skin. This provides a “lifting” effect, while also vastly improving your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. When taken together, these effects provide remarkable results that stand the test of time

Immediate and Long-Lasting Results

PDO threads offer the benefit of immediate results, often visible directly after the procedure. Patients can enjoy an immediate rejuvenated appearance as the threads are strategically placed to lift and tighten the skin. 

However, the magic of PDO threads doesn’t stop there. Over time, the collagen stimulation initiated by the threads continues to improve the skin’s texture and firmness, delivering long-lasting results that persist well beyond the initial treatment. This means your refreshed and youthful appearance will evolve and improve with time.

On average, you can expect your PDO threads to last for two years or longer. And if you don’t like the results you see, that’s fine, too. PDO thread lifts are entirely reversible, unlike their surgical counterparts.


PDO threads are incredibly versatile and can be used to target various areas of the face and neck. Whether you wish to enhance your cheeks, define your jawline, rejuvenate your neck, or elevate your eyebrows, PDO threads can be tailored to address your specific aesthetic goals. 

This versatility allows for comprehensive facial rejuvenation without the need for multiple, separate procedures. Targeting multiple areas during a single treatment session is convenient and efficient for patients seeking a holistic transformation.

PDO threads are ideal for tackling smile lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, glabellar lines (the 11s between our eyes), jowls, turkey neck, and so much more!


Cost considerations are a significant factor for many individuals exploring aesthetic treatments. PDO thread treatments are more cost-effective than surgical facelifts, making them accessible to a broader range of people. 

Achieving a refreshed and youthful appearance doesn’t have to come with an exorbitant price tag. On average, PDO thread lifts weigh in at 1/5th the cost of surgical facelifts. Combined with the years of benefits, and the minimal risks, PDO threads are carving out a definite advantage over surgical procedures.


PDO thread treatments are highly customizable to cater to your specific needs and desired outcomes. Your healthcare provider will work closely with you to design a treatment plan that addresses your unique aesthetic goals. 

Whether you’re looking for subtle enhancements or more dramatic transformations, PDO threads can be tailored to meet your expectations. Choose between barbed, smooth, and hybrid threads for the initial effect. After that, mix and match as-needed as the years roll on.
