PDO Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty isn’t the only way to define and straighten your nose anymore. Apricot Valley has expanded our PDO thread treatments to now include nose lifts, a non-surgical alternative to the traditional nose job.

PDO threads, or polydioxanone threads, are thin medical grade threads made of protein. They are 100% biocompatible with our bodies and will be absorbed over time, similarly to surgical sutures.

During a nose lift, a local anesthetic is used to numb the treatment area. Threads are then inserted horizontally into the bridge of the nose and vertically into the nasal tip. Using small barbed structures, the threads act as scaffolding which help contour and shape the nose. PDO threads can be used to lift the nose bridge, smooth nose humps and subtly refine the nose tip.
