PDO Threads in Columbus, Ohio

Need a lift? A lifted, tight face is the hallmark of a youthful appearance that is unfortunately lost with age. The effects of gravity and a decline in collagen cause our skin to lose elasticity, resulting in sagging and heaviness in the face. If you’ve noticed you’re losing definition along the jawline, neck, or cheek, it’s time for a lift.

The PDO threadlift at Lotus Elite Aesthetics delivers dramatic lifting and firming of the face without the need for a surgical facelift. This treatment is minimally invasive and is done with FDA-approved PDO threads, which are fully dissolvable and commonly used in heart surgery.

How does a PDO Thread Lift work?

PDO threads combat the effects of gravity using surgical sutures to skillfully lift the facial muscles and skin, achieving a beautiful tightening effect. This treatment is done with two types of PDO threads: barbed sutures and smooth threads.

Using a cannula with pre-inserted threads, the PDO threads are placed into the face, and anchored to the muscle and overlying skin. These threads are then pulled to create a lift, later dissolving on their own. As the threads dissolve, they further rejuvenate the skin and stimulate new collagen production.

Barbed threads

A topical anesthetic is first applied to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Threads are then carefully inserted into the treatment areas through a hypodermic needle. Once they are latched to the muscle and facial skin, they are pulled into the desired position and the excess thread is cut and discarded. Barbed threads effectively lift and tighten the facial skin, restoring definition in the jawline and neck areas. 

This same lifting result can also be achieved in the brow, cheek, and nose areas to enhance your natural facial features.

Smooth threads

Smooth threads can also be placed into areas such as the nasolabial folds to increase collagen and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. As these sutures dissolve, the increased production of collagen and elastin fills in the facial lines, rejuvenating the overlying skin for a long-lasting result. These lines are typically difficult to treat with other procedures, making the PDO thread lift an ideal anti-aging solution.


As we age, our natural collagen production is lowered, causing the skin to lose its youthful appearance and integrity. By using PDO threads, skin sagging is addressed through the tightening the threads create, and the overlying skin is rejuvenated from stimulated production of collagen.

The PDO thread lift at Lotus Elite Aesthetics is a versatile treatment that can address a variety of facial skin and aging concerns such as:

  • Lifting sagging skin
  • Tightening loose skin
  • Reducing skin laxity
  • Defining the jawline
  • Stimulating collagen
  • Lifting the brows
  • Fighting signs of skin laxity

Because this is a non-surgical procedure that is both quick and painless, it is often referred to as the “lunch-time” facelift. This is designed to be a non-invasive alternative to traditional facelift surgeries.

Can PDO Thread Lifts be combined with other treatments?

Further skin rejuvenation can be achieved when the PDO Thread Lift is combined with other aesthetic treatments, such as Botox for dynamic lines. The durability of the threads leaves them undisturbed by other treatments that use laser, radio frequency, and injections.

As your skin health is ever changing, exploring our range of services can push you further towards your aesthetic goals.

Am I a good candidate?

If a surgical facelift is out of the question for you and you’re looking for a quick lift, you are a great candidate. The PDO thread lift delivers the best results in patients with moderate signs of aging and skin laxity. This is an excellent option for those looking for rejuvenation but don’t want the extensive recovery time of facelift surgeries and other invasive cosmetic treatments.

You should not undergo the PDO thread lift if you:

  • Don’t have realistic expectations
  • Are currently pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have thin or excessively heavy skin
  • Have an active skin infection or acne

When will I see results?

You’ll notice an immediate lift and tightness to the skin immediately after treatment; however, full results will be revealed within a week when slight swelling subsides. Rejuvenation of the skin will continually improve as the increased production of collagen and elastin naturally restores the structure of your skin.

How long do results last?

Thread lift procedures at Lotus Elite Aesthetic can last up to 18 months. PDO threads will fully dissolve within 6-8 months; however, the benefits and improvements can still be seen from the increased collagen production.

Recovery and downtime

You will be able to return to your normal activities after your treatment; however, you should refrain from exercise for a few days to allow for proper healing. There will be swelling; however, this is minimal and any slight bruising should subside within a week.

Side effects

The most common side effects with thread lifts are bruising, swelling, and dimpling. Most side effects are minimal, if they do occur, and severe bruising is not commonly reported.
