About PDO Threading
PDO threading is 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 threading reduces 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 threading.

For patients who have mild to moderate wrinkles, sagging skin, or fine lines, PDO threading 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.
Usually, PDO threading 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.
