What Is a PDO Thread Lift?
A PDO thread lift is an innovative new minimally invasive aesthetic treatment to tighten loose, sagging skin and rejuvenate your look without the cost, scarring, and recovery time of plastic surgery. In effect, it's a nonsurgical facelift. At Infinite Health Zone, Dr. Neetu Ahluwalia, "Dr. A," and his experienced team are excited to offer the next-generation FDA-approved Miracu PDO thread lift, which provides superior lifting for excellent results. Unlike dermal fillers, which just provide volume, a PDO thread lift offers dramatically noticeable results by lifting and pulling sagging skin tighter, targeting the lower face and neck. The results can help you achieve tighter, smoother skin for an overall more youthful appearance.

Infinite Health Zone services the San Francisco area including Marin and Alameda counties.
What Are the Benefits of a PDO Thread Lift?
Not all individuals desire or require invasive surgical choices to gain an elevated, restored aesthetic. For individuals living in San Francisco, CA who might be keen on the idea of treating loose skin without getting invasive surgery, a polydioxanone (PDO) thread lift may be a great treatment that can offer you several benefits, such as:
- A procedure that is minimally invasive yet still effective
- Collagen growth that delivers glowing effects for years to come
- Results that are longer-lasting than other nonsurgical rejuvenation choices, such as filler injections
- Confident in your new, youthful appearance
Who Is A Good Candidate For A PDO Thread Lift?
The best individuals for thread lifting are usually those between ages 35 – 65 who are hoping to:
- Achieve smoother skin without having invasive procedures
- Jumpstart collagen growth in the upper layers of skin
- Minimize wrinkled skin on the neck and/or face
- Treat visible signs of aging, including deep wrinkles around the mouth and nose, sagging in the lower face, wrinkles, and lip lines
- Obtain longer-lasting results when compared to wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers
During your initial appointment in San Francisco, CA, our team will work with you to decide whether a thread lifting treatment could be ideal for your needs.
How Does a PDO Thread Lift Work?
A PDO thread lift works by inserting polydioxanone (PDO) threads just under the skin in targeted locations with a specialized needle. These super thin medical-grade sutures are gently pulled to lift and tighten your skin and then massaged into place. Most patients see an almost instant "lifting" effect after their treatment. Over about six months, these threads are absorbed by your skin, stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin, which further firms and tightens your skin while improving overall skin health and appearance.
Your nonsurgical facelift in San Francisco, CA at Infinite Health Zone begins with a private consultation where Dr. A will examine your skin and listen to your concerns. From there, he will work with you to design a customized PDO thread lift treatment plan to address your aesthetic desires. When it's time for your treatment, your skin will be cleaned, and a local anesthetic will be used to numb the treatment area. We will mark the injection sites and then begin to weave the threads into your skin. Each thread is gently pulled and tightened to achieve the lifting effect. Depending on your treatment plan, a typical PDO thread lift takes about 45 minutes.
What Should I Expect After My PDO Thread Lift?
In addition to achieving tighter, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin without surgery, a PDO thread lift also has no downtime or recovery period. After your procedure is finished, you're free to go back to work or your normal schedule; however, there are minor restrictions for the first 24 – 72 hours to avoid strenuous activities and direct sunlight. That's what makes PDO thread lifts so popular - it's literally a lunchtime facelift. Some patients may experience minor redness, swelling, or soreness in the treatment area, but this typically goes away within a week or less. The rejuvenating effects of a PDO thread lift are long-lasting, with most patients' results lasting about 18 months.
Infinite Health Zone Reviews
Dr. A is the best! He did my first Botox treatment at his Jackson Hole location and I cannot recommend him enough. He spent a lot of time providing education about the benefits of the treatment and what to expect, which made me feel at ease and more comfortable. Also, I experienced very mild discomfort during the procedure and no discomfort or bruising after. He said I could expect to see results in one week, but honestly I noticed improvement in my neck the next day. Dr. A is so good that clients would travel from Jackson Hole to see him at his office in San Francisco. I am so happy he is now practicing in WY. Book him - you will not be disappointed!!
Meeting Dr. A was a beautiful experience. His ability to put me at ease exceeded none. His recommended drip therapy was just what was needed to take care of the debilitating dehydration I was experiencing. I hope he will be able to squeeze me in for a rejuvenation++ program. Many thanks, Dr. A. Susie Pfau
I’ve been a client of Dr. A’s for years. He is always professional, makes sure I understand the service I am receiving and is a warm person to put you at ease no matter the procedure. You are in safe hands with him!
Neetu, has been helping me with all of my health and wellness needs. He's the best of the best!
Dr. A saved my lips and smile this week! I had some poorly placed filler from a different provider that gave me several nodules/bumps and he was able to almost painlessly dissolve the filler so my lips are much healthier now and smooth. I have had filler dissolved in the past with other providers and it can be very painful and stingy and Dr. A was able to make this procedure as comfortable as possible. I barely felt the pricks. He’s very caring, professional, highly skilled and has a wonderful eye for aesthetics. He’s also very fun to talk to and down to earth. I completely trust him with my face and highly recommend him. I will go back for Botox and Juvederm appointments in the future. Cute office too! Very earthy and modern! You automatically feel like you are in a beautiful jungle oasis escaping the busy city feel without leaving the city. Thank you again Dr. A!!

You can further extend your results by keeping up a healthy lifestyle that involves a nutrient-rich diet, consistent exercise, and a home skin routine.
Is a PDO thread lift painful?
