Amazing Nonsurgical Lift & Contour Results

PDO (Polydioxanone) threads are a nonsurgical alternative to a facelift and can improve other skin concerns. If you are looking to improve your skin’s structure without surgery, PDO threads are your perfect solution. This treatment uses dissolvable sutures to lift sagging skin and contour the treatment area.

What to Expect

The PDO Threads Process



When you visit Mind and Body Medical Spa for PDO threads in Milwaukee, you will first meet with a provider to make sure you are an ideal candidate for PDO threads. We will discuss your goals in order to provide recommendations for which technique will best meet those goals! Once we complete your consultation, you will know which product(s) we will use and the cost.


PDO Thread Insertion 

Your provider will numb the treatment area(s) and ensure you are comfortable before beginning the procedure process. For accuracy, they will then mark where the injections will go according to your treatment plan. Using a sharp needle or cannula, your provider will insert the PDO threads under your skin.


Next Steps

There may be some bruising or swelling immediately following your PDO thread insertion. We will provide detailed aftercare instructions, and you can ask us any questions you may have about caring for your PDO threads. This is also when we will schedule any follow-up appointments according to your treatment plan.
