PDO thread lifts are an effective alternative to facelifts and other surgical procedures. With this minimally invasive technique, patients can lift, tighten and rejuvenate the skin with minimal downtime. At Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery, we’re pleased to offer HD-PDO threads for thread lift procedures to residents of Bay City, Angleton, Lake Jackson and Houston, TX.
What are HD-PDO Threads?
HD-PDO threads are high density PDO threads, which are used for a cosmetic treatment known as the PDO thread lift. The PDO thread lift involves the placement of dissolvable threads into the skin. As they’re inserted into the skin, they lift and tighten the facial tissue to rejuvenate the appearance. Over time, the body absorbs these threads in a process that also stimulates collagen production. This means that as the threads are broken down, they’re replaced with the body’s natural collagen, which produces results that last well beyond the lifespan of the dissolvable threads.
The HD-PDO threads are a superior PDO thread product, as their higher density gives them more strength and therefore a longer effect duration. The unique production process for these threads also makes them thinner than standard PDO threads, which means treatment is even more comfortable for the patient. Only topical anesthetic is needed, and the treatment is virtually pain-free.
How Much Do HD-PDO Threads Cost?

Am I A Candidate for HD-PDO Threads?
HD-PDO threads can be a great treatment option for patients who are looking to lift, tighten and rejuvenate the skin without invasive or surgical techniques. It may also be suitable for patients who are looking to avoid scarring, lengthy recovery periods or the cost associated with surgical procedures. However, the best way to determine your candidacy for this treatment is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Pisarski. During your consultation, he can evaluate your treatment goals to ensure that HD-PDO threads are the best fit for you.
How is the HD-PDO Threads Treatment Performed?
The HD-PDO threads treatment begins with the application of a topical anesthetic cream, numbing the treatment area. Then, the HD-PDO threads are delivered into the skin via injection. Thanks to the small and durable qualities of the HD-PDO threads, this treatment can be performed with a fine-gauge needle, unlike the thicker cannula required for traditional PDO threads. Ultimately, this gives patients a virtually pain-free treatment. Once the threads are injected and properly positioned, the treatment is complete.
What is Recovery Like After HD-PDO Threads?
After your HD-PDO threads treatment, you can expect some bruising or swelling in the treatment area. Due to these side effects, you may choose to take a few days away from work and other social activities to allow the treatment area to heal. However, patients are generally able to return to normal activities within a week of treatment. We also advise patients to avoid strenuous activities for a few weeks longer to prevent any complications during the healing process.
What Results Can I Expect from HD-PDO Threads?
The HD-PDO threads produce results immediately upon injection, lifting and tightening the skin to produce a more youthful appearance. However, it can take up to three months for the final results of this treatment to become visible, once any side effects fade and the body has adapted to the threads. Thanks to the collagen stimulating benefits of the HD-PDO thread treatment, your results will last for at least two years as the body breaks down the dissolvable threads and replaces them with natural collagen.
