PDO Thread Lifts
An eyebrow lift or thread lift is a type of procedure wherein temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible “lift” in the skin. Instead of removing the patient’s loose facial skin surgically, we will simply suspend it by stitching up portions of it. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face.

Eyebrow lifts FAQs
The thread lift procedure works in two ways.
The first is fairly straightforward. By threading thin, dissolvable sutures underneath your skin, your doctor is able to pull your skin tight around your eyebrow area.
Invisible, painless “barbs” grab on to your skin and make sure that the thread grips your underlying tissue and muscles as the thread is pulled tight.
Once a barbed thread is inserted, your body’s healing response is triggered. Even though you’re not injured by the threads under your skin, your body detects a suture material and stimulates collagen production in the affected area. Collagen can fill gaps in sagging skin and restore a more youthful elasticity to your face.
A thread lift is considered a low-risk procedure, but there are side effects and a risk of complications.
After a thread lift, it’s not uncommon to experience the following:
- slight pain at the site of the thread injection
- dimpling of the skin at the treated area that usually resolves within 2 weeks
Complications to look out for include:
- allergic reaction to ingredients in the threading material
- migration or unintended “movement” of the threads that result in skin that looks lumpy or bulges
- pain under your skin
- infection at the site of the procedure
Of all the risks of a thread lift, infection is the one to watch out for most carefully. Call your doctor right away if you notice:
- discharge at the site of your procedure
- swelling for more than 48 hours
- persistent headaches
