Modern threading with PDO (Polydioxanone) Suture material are used to lift sagging skin & to improve acne scars & fine wrinkles. PDO Threads provides the skin with a fresh, well rested and firmer look whilst supporting new collagen formation for long lasting results.While skin resurfacing treatments can help to restore some degree of firmness, once loose skin is present, only a scalpel can truly remove it. However, while the approach of relying on injectable compounds and skin resurfacing until facelift surgery becomes absolutely necessary works for many patients, not everyone is willing or able to have surgery. If you’re in this group, you’ll be happy to know that a new type of non-surgical procedure has been developed to fill in the gap between noninvasive facial rejuvenation and facelift surgery.
The “thread lift” or the PDO threading procedure
A thread lift is a type of procedure wherein temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible “lift” in the skin. Instead of removing the patient’s loose facial skin surgically, the cosmetic surgeon simply suspends it by stitching up portions of it.
It is a 15-45 minute procedure depending on the number of threads used, the various thread lengths, diameter and shape give a wide range of addressing wrinkles of the skin anywhere on the face and body.
How does the PDO threading procedure work?
The PDO threading procedure involves using various lengths of thin acupuncture sterile needles to embed PDO dissolving threads deep underneath the surface of the skin. These wires are placed strategically into the dermis, where it acts as a frame for lifting and tightening loose and sagging skin. The material from which these threads are made, Polydioxanone, is a safe substance that keeps the skin in its new tightened state for 4-6 months, whilst also synthesizing new collagen production.
This treatment can be used on the face, but also in various areas of the body where the main objective is creating a lift, rather than restoring volume.

Advantages of PDO Threads:
- Minimum downtime
- Minimum pain
- Immediate results
- Safe & effective
What are the benefits of embedded threading procedures?
- A reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Younger looking skin, with fewer signs of ageing due to tightening of loose/lax skin
- Improve skin tone, texture, pigmentation, scarring and stretch mark appearance
- Long lasting results, due to new collagen synthesis
- No scars or visible cuts (as can be the result of a traditional facelift)
- Can be performed from the age of 30, or earlier for anti-ageing benefits
- Increased skin metabolism
- Optimization of texture
- Activation of the lymphatic circulation
- Increased circulation in surrounding areas
- Long lasting stimulation of the fascia and of the soft tissues
- Creation of collagen
- Normalization of collagen
- Remodeling of the silhouette
- Tissue elasticity and lifting
- Delayed cutaneous aging
- Skin brightness
VIOLA SMOOTH (PDO Thread)
VIOLA SMOOTH threads (mono threads) are available both in PDO (Polydioxanone) and PLLA (Polylactic Acid). The expected efficacy of PDO threads treatment averages 6 to 12 month, and PLLA has its average efficacy of 18 to 24 months.
VIOLA GOLD (PDO Thread)
The VIOLA GOLD thread, however, uses PGA (Polyglycolic) threads for pure golds to be coated to maximize its benefit. As the PGA biodegrades faster than PDO, coated gold remains in shape at its desired location for longer period.
The benefit of pure gold on skin is to increase skin’s elasticity, lightening the skin complexion, stimulating the cells making the skin firm, improving blood circulation, preventing premature aging of the skin, etc. This gold coated thread is to deliver this pure gold deep inside the dermis layer to maximize its benefit.
Recommended for Face Tightening & Whitening Nasolabial Folds.
VIOLA MESH (PDO Thread)
VIOLA MESH is a mesh-structured micro-fine absorbable PDO sutures with 19G cannula. This micro-fine PDO suture (USP 5-0) has mesh structure that can be placed underneath nasolabial fold to fill the line naturally. As the suture biodegrades underneath the skin, wound will start healing along with neocollagenesis, producing more collagen & elastin.
Recommended for Nasolabial Folds, Nose Restructuring, Forehead Wrinkles.
VIOLA COGLYFT (PDO Thread)
VIOLA COGLYFT uses blunt cannula for safe delivery of absorbable barbed suture inside the deep layers of the skin. VIOLA COGLYFT also uses barbed PDO sutures called COBRA – it’s a dual layer cutting method of PDO suture that ensures even stronger pulling of the skin compare to regular slice cutting cog thread.
Recommended for Full Face & Body: Jawline, Neck Wrinkles.
VIOLA MICROCOG (PDO Thread)
VIOLA MICROCOG is a new type of PDO thread for lifting which uses powerful barbed PDO sutures in spiral formation around the sterile needle without using a cannula. This allows even more non-invasive thread treatment with maximum lifting effect. It only requires use of topical anesthesia for the treatment. Topical Numbing Only, Volume Lifting, Fine Wrinkles.
VIOLA NOSELYFT (PDO Thread)
VIOLA NOSELYFT uses specially designed 19-gauge blunt cannula to safely penetrate into the nose structure for natural looking result.
VIOLA CAVERN (PDO Thread)
VIOLA CAVERN uses PDO thread to maximize collagen & elastin generation. Recommended for Nasolabial Folds, Large Wrinkles, Chin line, Grumpy Facial, Cheek Filling, Facial Contouring.
VIOLA MULTI (PDO Thread)
VIOLA MULTI can be used for deep wrinkle/line care. Strongly suggested for Forehead/Temple Augmentation, and can be used along with VIOLA Smooth, and use this MULTI thread on areas where it needs extra volume.
VIOLA PLENTI (PLLA Thread)
VIOLA PLENTI is made up with 75 pieces of microfine (USP 11-0) PLLA sutures attached to a single 2g needle. After simple insertion underneath the eye, each PLLA thread slowly disperses underneath the skin, helping the blood flow and treats dark circles and promotes neocollagenesis.
Recommended for dark circles.
VIOLA DOUBLELYFT (PLLA Thread)
Recommended for brow lift, breast lift, upper butt lift.
VIOLA MOLD (PLLA Thread)
Application: Full Face
