The new, non-invasive, non – surgical facelift is now available at Live Gorgeous OC! Think of PDO Threadlift as a non-surgical facelift using an absorbable suture made of Polydioxanone (PDO). PDO threads are used to create lift and volume in areas of the face and body that have begun to sag due to aging. PDO suture has been used in procedures, such as open-heart surgery, for years making it very safe to introduce to the body.
There are several types of threads used to accomplish the procedure:
- Smooth threads for superficial wrinkles and lines
- Volumizing threads for defining lip borders and diminishing deep wrinkles or folds, such as smile lines
- Lift threads that contain small barbs to lift the skin up and returns it to its original natural position

Frequently Asked Questions
Is there anything I need to do to prepare for PDO Threadlift treatment at Live Gorgeous OC?
The most important part of preparing for the PDO Threadlift treatment is to stop taking any medications and supplements that thin the blood as these may cause bruising and prolong healing. Other than that, there is no preparation for the PDO Threadlift.
What should we expect during the PDO Threadlift treatment while at Live Gorgeous OC?
At Live Gorgeous OC, we use Nova threads, the latest most advanced form of PDO threads on the market. When getting PDO Threadlift, your licensed and trained practitioner makes a small opening through which needles with threads are inserted. The needle is then removed, and the thread is left suspended in place to lift the skin.
When the threads are inserted, they cause the body to produce inflammation, which then signals the body to boost collagen production. This is how the targeted areas increase facial volume as well as volume on other parts of the body.
When will I see the results from my PDO Threadlift at Live Gorgeous OC?
Results are immediately noticeable to you and continue to increase over the next few months as the body fully absorbs the threads. These results typically last between six months and one year.
