Who is a good candidate for a thread lift?

At The Things We Do, a PDO thread lift is one of the most popular treatments we perform when patients come in.

PDO, or Polydioxanone, threads are the latest way to achieve a lift without going under the knife. Patients who are looking for a natural way to rejuvenate without the downtime of surgery love the results from their PDO thread lift.

Believe it or not, the ideal age to start considering threads is typically in our 30s. Threads can help address any laxity by stimulating collagen and lifting the tissue in the face, jawline and neck. A good candidate for threads is someone who has mild to moderate laxity and desires a natural lift.

Patients who want a subtle lift to the tissue and have realistic expectations about the degree of lift that threads can provide are the best candidates. A typical PDO thread lift treatment consists of treating the mid and lower face simultaneously in order to get the best results. Pairing this treatment with PRFM, to build on collagen production, and hyaluronic acid fillers, to build structure and support, gives our patients the most natural, long-lasting results that we are known for at The Things We Do.  

Now, that is not to say that those in their 40s and 50s cannot benefit from threads. Sacha Strebe recently raved about her experience, at 41, receiving threads with The Things We Do. During our consultation, we discuss realistic expectations for each patient’s anatomy. If you are a better candidate for a surgical facelift due to excess skin laxity or heaviness, a surgical facelift might be a better option for you.

Regardless of age, if your anatomy allows for an adequate lift and this is your goal, you may a good candidate for a PDO thread lift along with other facial balancing treatments.
