PDO Threads Q & A

What are aesthetic laser treatments?

EuroThreads treatment can tighten and lift skin on the face, neck, and body. EuroThreads are made from biodegradable polymers called polydioxanone (PDA) sutures.

These threads, often used for medical applications, are fully absorbed by your body within 4-6 months and cause no scar tissue.

A thread lift involves injecting these PDO threads just under the skin so they raise and tighten sagging tissue. Lax skin tissue is pulled upwards, so you get an immediately more youthful look.

The injections also stimulate collagen production to help boost your skin’s elasticity and strength. Finally, the EuroThreads cause fat tissue to contract and enhance blood vessels to further improve your skin’s tautness.

How do EuroThreads treatments give you the look of a facelift?

A EuroThreads lift offers a way to get the look of a facelift without actually undergoing surgery. EuroThreads reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, including crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, and lines around the mouth. They also do the following for aging skin:

  • Lift slack neck tissue
  • Boost sagging jowls and jawline
  • Fill in sunken or loose cheeks
  • Diminish the look of scars and melasma
  • Treat creases under and around the eyes

Dr. Heron can talk with you about how EuroThreads can address your specific aesthetic concerns.

How do EuroThreads treatments affect sagging skin on the body?

EuroThreads are useful in addressing sagging or loose skin on various areas of your body. For example, use EuroThreads to lift the skin on the upper arms, abdomen, or chest. Both men and women can benefit from EuroThreads body treatments.

What happens during a EuroThreads lift?

EuroThreads lifts are minimally invasive and involve no incisions or blood loss. Dr. Heron applies a local anesthetic to the desired treatment area to reduce the sensation of the injections. He uses a specially made needle to insert the invisible threads into your skin.

The threads anchor the skin and lift it upwards. Each procedure lasts about 15-30 minutes, depending on where you’re receiving treatment.

Dr. Linda is wonderful - has never made me feel rushed. Highly recommend for Dysport. Her rates for Dysport are reasonable & substantially lower than my dermatologist


My experience at Heron Med Spa was awesome. I look great & feel great. I'm still healing and a little sore. I do everything they told me to do. I worked the same day.


Professional & prompt, Dr. Heron is an excellent surgeon. I had laser lipo on my neck & jowls. I am pleased with my result for two reasons: the results are phenomenal!

20 years ago I was referred to Dr. Heron for weight loss. I return every year to prevent gaining during holidays. If I am struggling with my weight I restart his program.


I had a laser session for scars with Barbara. The session was great - very knowledgeable. I look forward to going back.


I will definitely wear a bikini this summer. After two kids, I called Dr Heron. I only took pain medicine for three days and followed doctor's orders. My skin is tighter.
