PDO Threads

The Non-Surgical Facelift

Minimally-invasive skin tightening to lift, tighten & shape the face. Boost collagen & elasticity.

We are pleased to offer PDO Threads at Mariposa Medical Aesthetics conveniently located in Ellensburg, WA and Covington, WA. This non-surgical alternative to a facelift can provide significant anti-aging benefits that last up to a year or longer. Patients are often pleasantly surprised with their results, which include reduced skin laxity and a better definition of facial features.


PDO sutures have been around for several years. They are often associated with medical situations like trauma surgeries, cardiothoracic, and orthopedic medicine. However, now the popular and trustworthy sutures are used for a non-surgical facelift procedure. The threads are polydioxanone (PDO) material, a complex sugar. Unlike other threads, PDO is entirely absorbable and instantly provides a lift to the face reducing wrinkles or sagging skin. Best of all, PDO Threads  are FDA-approved.

Are there any side effects?

PDO thread lift is a simple, in-office procedure that doesn’t involve harsh side effects or complications. You may experience mild post-treatment swelling, redness, and bruising around the treatment areas for a few days. You can apply ice packs to reduce swelling and bruising. You should avoid strenuous workouts and direct sunlight for around 3 days. But you can resume most of your normal activities and work immediately.
