    Facelift Without Surgery: PDO Thread Lift

    Facelift Without Surgery: PDO Thread LiftWhile many women and men seek to restore youthful contours of their face, they may be hesitant to undergo facelift cosmetic surgery or liposuction procedures. For such patients, the minimally invasive ‘lunchtime’ procedure, Nu-mesh PDO thread lift, may be an appropriate option. 

    Nu-mesh PDO thread lift helps develop a revitalized, natural-looking neck, jawline, and face in a single in-office treatment completed within one hour. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides facelift without surgery (PDO thread lift) to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities. 


    How does Nu-mesh PDO Thread Lift Work?

    PDO thread lift procedure lifts sagging regions of skin on the face in a non-surgical manner. The procedure immediately tightens the tissue and simultaneously encourages the generation of collagen fibers in the deeper tissue layers for longer-lasting outcomes.

    New collagen enhances skin volume over time. It lifts and tightens the skin for a tauter, more youthful-looking face and neck. Nu-mesh threads are medical-grade, dissolvable sutures comprising polydioxanone (PDO). These are delicately inserted into the sagging facial areas. 

    A natural scaffolding of collagen is created in this process, enabling the patient to achieve firmer and more lifted face, neck, and jaw skin. The body will safely reabsorb the threads in nearly four to six months. However, the skin will appear rejuvenated and youthful for up to two years.



    For the right candidate, skin firming with Nu-mesh PDO thread lift can be undertaken in almost any body area. However, the outcomes in the face and neck area are most dramatic with this procedure. 

    In this procedure, the provider cautiously inserts the PDO thread needles into the targeted sites of the neck and face skin as a whole needle.

    The needle reaches the interstitial tissue at a sub-dermal level in the neck and remains parallel to the superficial skin surface to produce an optimal effect. After this, the provider will gently pull the needle out, while the PDO thread remains beneath the skin. The body will slowly reabsorb the PDO suture.

    Due to the absorption process, the skin’s internal repair mechanism will be triggered. This will lead to the production of new collagen over time. Consequently, the patient will experience a subtle lift in the treated areas, while the skin appears tauter and smoother. 


    Advantages of PDO Thread Lift

    The outcomes of the PDO thread lift procedure are almost immediate. The patient will notice firmer and lifted skin in the face and neck for at least one to two years. The outcomes continue to improve and appear more natural over time due to the production of new collagen fibers.

    The procedure can be undertaken without any incisions and cuts and does not cause any scars or scar tissue. The duration of the procedure is under an hour, and there is little to no downtime involved. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for facelift without surgery (PDO thread lift).
