What are PDO Max Threads?

PDO Max threads are thin, medical grade absorbable threads that lift and tighten sagging skin tissue. These threads are implanted in the subcutaneous layer of the skin using FDA-cleared cannulas or small needles. Once inserted into the skin, this treatment results in a lifted, rejuvenated, and fuller look. Having threads placed by Dr. Quibell will maximize your results and leave your skin looking and feeling healthy.

How do PDO Max Threads work?

PDO Max is a minimally invasive procedure that tightens the skin. Unlike most facelift procedures, there are no big incisions required. Instead, PDO thread lifting uses small needles to insert fine threads under the skin. These threads are especially designed to anchor sagging skin and lift it upwards. The threads also stimulate collagen production, helping to further diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

The PDO threads dissolve after 6-9 months, but their effects can last up to 2 years thanks to the stimulation of new collagen.

Am I a candidate?

If you are looking to correct lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging skin, PDO thread lifts may be the perfect procedure for you. If you experience sagging skin under the chin and near the cheeks, PDO Max threads may be especially effective and beneficial for you.

Where can they be placed?

Although PDO Max threads can be inserted almost anywhere in the body, the best results are seen aesthetically on the lower third of your face.
