PDO Threadlift Specialist in Pittsburgh
Facial Threadlift (PDO Threadlift)
FACIAL THREADLIFTS are seen as an ideal non-surgical and minimally invasive alternative to a traditional surgical facelift. In this procedure, cutting-edge biocompatible sutures are carefully inserted just beneath the surface of the skin to suspend the tissue and give it an immediate lift. These special sutures simultaneously begin activating your body’s natural cycle of producing healthy collagen and elastin, for long-lasting youthful rejuvenation.
FACIAL THREADLIFTS produce results like traditional facelifts, including repositioning skin tissue, smoothing out wrinkles, and providing a vastly more youthful facial appearance without significant incisions, scars, or an extended recovery period.

Non-surgical Facelift in Pittsburgh
An Ideal Alternative To Surgical Facelifts
A FACIAL THREADLIFT is a procedure wherein absorbable suture threads (PDO threads) are inserted under your skin and used to lift the skin tissue. The primary purpose is to restore the more youthful contours of a natural facial v-shape rather than the square-shaped silhouette that occurs with aging and because of skin laxity.
PDO suture is a biodegradable compound that gradually gets absorbed by the body while encouraging collagen production. Your skin’s reinforced collagen reserves eventually replace the PDO threads, allowing your skin to continue to maintain a tauter and more firm appearance. PDO threads are completely absorbed by the body, leaving no trace behind.
Perfect For Patients With Lax & Wrinkled Facial Skin
FACIAL THREADLIFTS are ideal for patients with lax, wrinkled, or drooping skin. They’re especially suitable for patients who want long-term and natural cosmetic enhancements without undergoing invasive surgeries with extended recovery periods. FACIAL THREADLIFTS allow you to resume most of your daily activities immediately after the treatment.
During your consultation, Lori Pherson, RN, carefully examines your facial skin and structure, reviews your medical history, and discusses your cosmetic goals to curate the ideal treatment plan. Local anesthesia is administered to ensure a comfortable and virtually pain free experience. Pre-threaded needles are then carefully inserted into the skin’s interstitial tissues and are run parallel to the skin’s surface.
The fine barbs along the PDO threads hold and suspend the facial tissue, giving an immediate lift. Over time, collagen fibers form around the PDO threads as the thread gradually dissolves, giving your skin a long-lasting and natural facial lift.
Quick Recovery With Minimal Downtime
Following the procedure, you may experience some swelling, redness, and irritation around the insertion points for a few days. This mild swelling is well managed with ice packs and rest. Avoiding sudden motions and keeping your head elevated for 24 hours following the procedure will allow for the smoothest recovery. Most patients can resume their daily activities and work the following day, avoiding strenuous activities for 3-5 days.
PDO THREADLIFTS provides immediate results, with your skin looking significantly smoother and tighter after the procedure. These results will continue improving as swelling and redness dissipate, and over time, the PDO threads will be naturally replaced by collagen fibers over 4 to 6 months, giving your skin a natural long-term enhancement.
