The Different Types of PDO Threads You Need to Know About


PDO threads are becoming an increasingly popular non-surgical facelift treatment. They are commonly used to stimulate collagen production and improve skin tightness. In Orlando, Vamped Aesthetics is your go-to clinic for PDO threads. But before you set your appointment, it’s important to understand the different types of PDO threads available. Knowing the types of PDO threads is essential to help you make an informed decision on the type that’s best suited for you. In this post, we will be discussing in detail the various types of PDO threads available.


Mono Threads

Mono threads are one of the most popular types of PDO threads for treating wrinkles on the face and neck. They are also used to treat sagging skin on the arms, thighs, and buttocks. Mono threads are smooth threads that have a single, fine thread. They help to boost collagen production and skin elasticity. Mono threads are usually used with other PDO threads for an overall more effective treatment.

Screw Threads

Screw threads, also known as corkscrew threads, have a multi-directional screw pattern allowing for a stronger lift than mono threads. They are particularly useful for sagging skin on the cheeks and neck, and for creases around the mouth or eyes. Unlike mono threads, screw threads provide an instant lift due to their helical pattern.

Tornado Threads

Tornado threads are a unique form of screw threads that have barbs or cogs that grip the skin, holding it in place. The threads provide an immediate lift and have a longer-lasting effect because of this. Tornado threads are best suited for the treatment of the jawline, neck, and cheeks.

Barb Threads

Barb threads have tiny barbs, offering a more powerful lift than screw threads. They are mainly used for lifting the eyebrows or the undereye area. Barb threads should only be used by an experienced practitioner as they require precision placement.

Ribbon Threads

Ribbon threads are wider than other types of PDO threads, which allows them to treat larger areas such as forehead wrinkles or neck skin. Ribbon threads come in both smooth and barbed variations and provide a long-lasting lift along the entire area the thread was placed.
