About PDO Thread lifts
PDO thread lifts are a safe and effective treatment option for patients who want to refresh their skin without undergoing surgery. Also known as a thread lift, we complete this in-office procedure with long-lasting, dissolvable sutures that lift and contour the complexion. While gently lifting the cheeks and decreasing the appearance of wrinkles, PDO threads reduce droopy skin around the middle of the face, which makes the complexion look smoother and tighter. Both of our facilities in Elmhurst and Orland Park, IL proudly offer this innovative, noninvasive procedure to turn back the hands of time. During the procedure, we use threads that also stimulate the production of collagen, which will further enhance your skin’s appearance and health. To learn more, we encourage you to call JEM Medspa and schedule an appointment for additional information about PDO thread lifts.
"Hands-down the best experience ever with Samantha this place is superb, Here and Elmhurst office are both fantastic will go here for everything"- J.G. / Google / Aug 18, 2020
"I have nothing but utterly exceptional things to say about my visits with Jem Med Spa in Elmhurst! My injector, Nicole is truly an artist. She studies your face and tells you exactly what you need to achieve a refreshed, yet VERY a natural look! She is incredibly kind in listening to what my goals are and her execution is always beyond exquisite. I was absolutely terrified of getting fillers, as it was my first time, but Nicole has such a caring bedside manner in a way that makes you feel like you’ve been best friends for years. I always appreciate how patient she is in answering all my questions, too! My aesthetician, Emily, is always fantastic. She is the absolute best. I struggle with rosacea and hormonal breakouts, which I know can be challenging to treat, but she always has a solution to help me achieve my best looking skin. Emily has customized a whole treatment plan for my skin going into fall so I can reach my skincare goals. I’ve gone through a couple of BBL laser treatments with her. She is always incredibly attentive in checking in with how I’m feeling each session so that I can maintain optimal comfort. I always look forward to my appointments at Jem MedSpa because of how AMAZING I feel when I leave. It’s all thanks to the quality providers who work here."- K.M. / Google / Aug 28, 2021

"I didn’t have the best impression initially..but my gosh I didn’t even have to mention my discontent and the manager went so far above and beyond to make sure I had a positive experience/impression. They absolutely care about their clients and reputation."- K.L. / Google / Aug 14, 2021

For patients who have mild to moderate wrinkles, sagging skin, or fine lines, PDO thread lifts can help reduce these signs of aging. Usually, this happens because of the natural decline in collagen and elastin production. The loss of these essential skin nutrients causes drooping skin and volume loss in the middle and lower part of the face. For additional enhancement, we can combine PDO threading with another rejuvenating treatment, such as dermal fillers or wrinkle relaxer injectables. During your consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic goals and help set realistic expectations.
Thread Lift Procedure Technique
Usually, PDO thread lifts only takes about 30 minutes to complete, and we perform it in one of our private procedure rooms. To ensure you remain comfortable throughout the procedure, we start by applying a numbing ointment to your skin. We must emphasize that PDO threading only helps with lifting and refreshing the skin and is not used for other aesthetic objectives. Unlike other threading procedures, we do not suture or implant the threads. Instead, we use long-term, dissolvable threads that stimulate the production of collagen. Once your skin is completely numb, a team member will delicately insert the thread into the treatment area and lift the sagging skin. After your procedure, you may go back to your daily routine. Over time, these threads will start to dissolve, and usually, your results can last about 12 – 18 months.
What to Expect
After your procedure, you will be able to leave and recover at home. Generally, you only experience mild symptoms, including discoloration and swelling around the treatment sites. However, these should go away in 1 – 2 days. Immediately after your procedure, you should notice your results. Your complexion will naturally appear lifted, tighter, and refreshed. Before you leave, one of our team members will provide detailed aftercare directions. Proper aftercare may extend your results, which may last about two years. If you want to enhance or maintain your results, our team can suggest additional rejuvenation treatments that can help.
