What To Expect

The Science Behind Your Confidence.

How Does a Threadlift Work?

PDO threadlifts are minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that provide our patients with the skin rejuvenation results of a facelift without any of the cutting, anesthesia, or downtime. The secret behind the threadlift is the "thread" that is used. Made of polydioxanone, a medical material that naturally dissolves over time, these threads utilize bidirectional cones to lift the structures within the face and increase collagen production in the skin. Not only does this provide our patients with an immediately lifted and refreshed look, but it also enhances their signs of aging with collagen production over the next few months. At Glow Theory Dermatology Studio, we are proud to use PDO Max® and SMUTH PDO threads.

Your Glow Consultation

During your private consultation with our aesthetics expert, we will take the time to determine whether threadlift treatments are right for you. In addition to taking photos of your treatment area, your aesthetics professional will develop a tailored treatment plan to help you level up your look.



Prior to your threadlift appointment, we ask our patients to avoid drinking alcohol and to stop the use of blood thinning medications including over-the-counter medications like Tylenol. Talk to your doctor and medical professionals before discontinuing prescription blood thinning medications.



Before your threadlift treatment begins, we will clean your treatment areas to ensure your skin is free of any excess makeup and oils. A local anesthetic may also be administered to your treatment area at this time.


Threadlift Process

our aesthetics professional will carefully inject the PDO threads into your treatment area using a thin, hollow needle called a cannula. After placement, the PDO threads will then be manipulated to lift the structures under the skin and provide you with a naturally youthful appearance.



After a PDO threadlift, our patients are able to return to their normal daily activities including going to work within a day or two of treatment. While swelling and bruising are to be expected, these side effects typically resolve on their own within a few days of treatment.
