As we age the effects of gravity, loss of collagen production and facial fat become noticeable on the face and body. The PDO Thread lift is a non-surgical skin tightening procedure that repositions the skin instantly and over time, without incisions only injections. With five convenient locations serving Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra and St. Augustine, Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Phillip Garcia, offers PDO thread lifts to men who live in North Florida.

What is a PDO Thread Lift?

PDO thread lifts are a non-surgical skin tightening procedure that uses PDO sutures that are pre-loaded in acupuncture needles. The NovaThreads are injected under the skin and positioned to provide an instant lift of the skin. No incisions are made on the skin but blunt cannulas create a smooth plane to place the NovaThreads.

What are PDO Threads?

PDO stands for PolyDioxanOne, the suture is fully absorbed by the body within 4 to 6 months and will not leave a scar. PDO sutures are used to perform cardio-thoracic surgery and are one of the safest materials implanted in the body. PDO sutures are FDA cleared for tissue attenuation from the head to toes.

How Does the PDO Thread Lift Work?

As the body absorbs the NovaThreads, the skin repairs itself around the thread by creating new collagen. The increase in collagen production in the skin creates a tighter smoother complexion. By creating specific vectors with the NovaThreads a non-surgical lift is the end result.

Who is a good candidate for the PDO Thread Lift?

Any patient is an excellent candidate.

What Type of Anesthesia Will I Receive for my Procedure?

You will receive local anesthesia, not general anesthesia

On What Areas of the Body Can NovaThreads be Used?

NovaThreads can be used to lift areas of the face, arms, legs, abdomen, breast and buttocks but are especially effective in the jawline and neck.

How Long Will It Take To Perform the PDO Thread Lift?

The procedure can take any where from 15 minutes to an hour or more depending on the area(s) being treated.

How Much Time Should I Plan to Take off From Work After My Thread Lift?

No downtime is required, this is often referred to as a lunchtime lift.

When Can I Expect to See Results From My Thread Lift?

A 30% improvement is seen immediately, continued improvement is seen over the next 6 months.
