The Treatment



Could you use a lift? A non-surgical PDO Thread Lift can tighten, sculpt, and lift your facial skin. Restore your skin to a tight, youthful position with minimal downtime.




JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is injected into the areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur, including the “parentheses lines” around the nose and mouth. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is designed to temporarily correct facial wrinkles for a smoother appearance to the face for adults over the age of 21.

JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC is also approved for smoothing and correcting moderate to severe parentheses lines, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the nose and mouth), in adults.




JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC injectable gel is for injection into the lips for lip augmentation and for correction of perioral lines, often called “lipstick lines” in adults over the age of 21.

JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is an injectable gel that temporarily adds more fullness and plumps thin lips—whether your lips have thinned over time or you simply want fuller lips—in adults over the age of 21.


With a decade worth of safety track record in surgery, polydioxanone (PDO) is a safe raw material that has been used for orthopedic and cardiovascular surgery for wound closure. As a safe raw material that is completely absorbed by the body through hydrolysis, PDO causes minimal tissue reaction and tissue trauma.

At Radiance Skin and Laser - we use MINT™ and NovaThreads™ PDO threads.

PDO threads are minimally invasive procedures that do not require general anesthesia or big incisions. There are tiny barbs strategically placed and molded all around the thread. Once placed, the barbs anchor onto sagging skin, and the thread can be maneuvered to achieve a naturally youthful and defined look. 

Not only can it improve the appearance of sagging skin, PDO (polydioxanone) can also help promote the stimulation of collagen and neovascularization, which helps to improve skin elasticity, texture, fine lines, and volume for a timeless rejuvenation.

PDO results are immediate. You do not have to wait weeks and months to see your results. Although individual results may vary, common results achieved include:

Heart shaped, higher cheekbone contour  -  Defined jaw line

Softer smile lines  -   Softer eyebrows  -  Smoother neck lines

The procedure takes an average of one hour but can take anywhere between 45 minutes to 90 minutes. You will see immediate results after the procedure that can last up to 1 year. 

PDO Thread Lift is a great procedure to get in conjunction with other treatments such as lasers, PRP, injectables, BOTOX®, and fillers. The threads can be used to target sagging skin and fillers can be utilized for deep lines to create an overall youthful appearance to the face. 

Ask Dr. Julie to help customize a treatment plan!

Recovery after a PDO thread lift is minimal. Most patients are able to return to work and most normal activity 1 day after the procedure with only minor discomfort. It is common for patients to experience minor inflammation and bruising which typically resolves within 1 week.
