What is a thread lift?
A PDO (polydioxanone) thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure in which Dr. Marki inserts a needle under the skin and places a thread that is made from suture material which safely and instantly tightens sagging, loose or wrinkled skin. Since there is little to no down time with the thread lift procedure it can be performed on the convenience of your lunch hour. PDO Threads promote natural collagen production in the skin’s cellular level.
