Setiba Medical Spa offers HD PDO in Westlake Village, CA great for both men and women.

HD PDO Thread Lift is a treatment that lifts and tightens sagging skin tissues using threads mode of polydioxanone. This thread is introduced deep into the layer of skin and produces three effects:

  • Instant skin lifting through mechanical effects.
  • Cellular renewal through collagen stimulation and neovascularization to improve texture, fine lines, and wrinkles.
  • Skin tightening by approximating tissues.

HD PDO Thread Lift is a non-surgical facelift, where temporary sutures are used to produce a visible “lift” to your skin. The threads dissolve over six to eight months. The threads are replaced by new collagen that holds the lifted skin for up to two years.

HD PDO Thread treatments are safe, and the side effects are generally mild.


To help you decide whether this treatment is right for you, you should read the following facts. 

Unlike regular PDOs, HDPDO (high-density poly-dioxanone) is made under high temperature and pressure to hold maximum tensile strength, resist enzymatic attack and become more thermal resistant, making it stronger and long lasting.

HDPDO stimulates the fibroblast to produce more collagen causing rejuvenation and revitalization of the skin.

  • Thinnest and Strongest
  • No lidocaine Injection Required
  • Topical Numbing Only
  • Tailor-Made Patterns
  • Instant Results
  • FDA Cleared

The HD PDO threads are inserted via blunt tip needles, called cannulas, or sharp-tipped needles. Once inserted into the appropriate layer of skin, they act as anchors as the skin is lifted upwards. 

Dimpling, thread exposure, alopecia, under-correction, asymmetry, and parotid gland injury also can occur as early complications of the procedure. Fortunately, these reactions are predominantly mild to moderate in intensity, and can be corrected by a relatively simple procedure.

Based on the metabolism of the body it could last between 8 to 12 months
HD-PDO results last between a year and half to two years.

Almost anyone can be a candidate for an HD-PDO Thread Lift. This procedure is suitable for individuals with early signs of aging since it can slow down the aging process.

For those with more advanced aging, this lift will help improve elasticity, increase collagen production & minimize other signs of aging.


PDO threads are absorbable synthetic polymer that is highly versatile. The PDO thread will biodegrade over a period of 4 to 6 months. The PDO thread will create micro injures to the skin causing it to have a positive result on the dermal layers, for example, increase blood flow. Results from this treatment may take up to 3 weeks or longer for the treatment effect to be noticeable.
