What are PDO Thread Lifts?
PDO, also referred to as Polydioxanone, has been used for decades in surgery for biomedical applications, particularly in cardiothoracic surgery. Why? Because it is fully absorbed within 4 to 6 months & doesn’t create any scar tissue. The foreign body stimulates collagen production & the skin structure created with Threads will hold for another 12 to 15 months. PDO threads provide a lifting effect that fillers along cannot accomplish. In most instances, fillers are used to revolumize a patient’s face, and PDO threads are used to reduce laxity & create deeper Collagen & Elastin.

Non-Surgical Facelift Procedure
No cuts or incisions & the procedure is Purely injection-based much like other fillers!
The non-surgical procedure uses needles that are pre-loaded with varying types of PDO threads. Our practitioner inserts the whole needle in the interstitial tissue at a subdermal level, parallel to the surface of the skin, & pulls the needle out. The PDO thread remains under the skin and acts as scaffolding as shown below.
PDO Threads in the Neck & Jaw
Although threads can be inserted/injected almost anywhere, one particular area that was missing a Non-Surgical procedure is the area of the Jaw & the Neck. Just as BOTOX has no rival on the forehead & fillers on mid-face.
Nu-Mesh threads consist of creating a mesh under the skin using the threads smooth or the twist, usually, 5 threads per area, inserted in 2 or 3 directions, creating a “Net” underneath the skin. The Nu-Mesh technique relies on the action of the needle & the reaction to the foreign body to stimulate new collagen.
What Type of Threads does Forever Young MedSpa offer?
We are proud to offer the latest advancements in all non-surgical devices and treatments. When it comes to PDO Threads our leading solution is MIRACU Threads. There are other times that we’ll also present the option of NovaThreads. Below, we’ve included information on both threads. During your consultation, we’ll be able to explain the benefits and provide our recommendations on which treatment is best for the needs of your skin.
What Are Miracu PDO Threads?
Miracu PDO Threads are next-generation FDA-cleared, absorbable surgical sutures that provide more lifting strength & longevity than earlier generation threads. The Miracu PDO thread lift is a treatment involving the use of polydioxanone (PDO) surgical sutures that are inserted under the skin providing a smoothing and lifting effect in the face, neck, forehead, and a number of other areas in the body that fillers alone cannot accomplish.
How Do MIRACU PDO Threads Work?
Miracu PDO Threads are inserted into the desired area providing the patient with an immediate skin lift. As the threads do not need to be removed as they dissolve naturally over several months, helping to produce new Collagen & Elastin in and around the treated area. This process maintains the lifted area and utilizes “controlled healing” as a way to increase overall benefits by activating the body’s selective inflammatory response. Controlled healing is a technique utilized by other procedures as well, such as fractional lasers, chemical peels, and microneedling. The idea is that during this healing process, new collagen and elastin are created as the body responds to replenish and renew the area.
The Miracu, PDO Threads slowly break down over about 240 days. Thereafter, they are converted into water and carbon dioxide and are fully absorbed without any residue, through a process known as hydrolysis.
PDO threads offer a non-surgical lift option with virtually no downtime and results that generally last 18-24 months. Most procedures take less than one hour! In most cases, Miracu PDO threads will be combined with fillers to help achieve proper volume.
What are the Advantages of MIRACU?
- FDA-Cleared with approved FDA 510K Number – K172602. To receive this FDA designation, Miracu PDO threads were subject to a rigorous three-year evaluation process to meet more than 90 validated requirements including extensive biocompatibility testing to ensure none of the materials are harmful to patients’ when embedded.
- Individually packaged PDO Threads assures sterilization and patient safety
- Miracu is the Worldwide leader in needle technology
- A flexible needle provides less tissue trauma & bruising
- Widest selection of threads on the market for all face, neck, and body types
What are NovaThreads?
While we use NovaThreads to a much lesser degree than Miracu, depending on the patient’s specific needs, NovaThreads can sometimes be a fantastic solution. Like most all threads, NovaThreads uses Polydioxanone. There are two types called Nu-Mesh and Nu-Lift.
Nu-Mesh: This procedure uses smooth threads that are layered to resemble a net. Two will be placed horizontally and three vertically to ensure a strong collagen structure.
Nu-Lift: This technique creates more dramatic results using barbed sutures to grip the skin. Threads are inserted in a mesh pattern but can be pulled in two different directions to give an instant lift. During a Nu-Lift, natural collagen will then secure the tightened skin.
NovaThreads can be used on all types of the face and body including but not limited to: cheeks, chin, neck, buttocks, crow’s feet, and lips.
