Thread Lifting Overview
Women and men with wrinkles, fine lines, and aging skin often look to find ways to turn back the hands of time while delaying a surgical procedure such as a facelift. Dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX, as well as other skin rejuvenation treatments were the only option for a long while. Today, there are other alternatives to help create a smooth and younger looking complexion. At the ZO Skin Centre® Pasadena CA, we can inject polydioxonone (PDO) threads into areas of your face with precision and delicate care to reposition certain areas of your facial skin into a lifted, more youthful position. Thread lifting is gaining notoriety in the aesthetic field because the treatment gently disrupts your skin so that it can repair itself at the site by stimulating new collagen growth. This creates a tighter, glowing look that can last years. Thread lifting can be used on the face, as well as the chin nad neck with little to no downtime. If you are looking for a nonsurgical way to attain a younger look, we are excited to discuss this groundbreaking treatment with you.
"Anita Gardner NP is the Best! I come to see her for my Health Infusions. At ZO, beauty is not just about skin deep, my monthly visits at ZO for my Facials with Claudia and IV Theraphy with Anita help me look and feel better inside and out. Thank you to the ladies of ZO Skin Centre in Pasadena, I love the Power of Blue ... Anita Gardner, Claudia, Natalia, Shelly, and Angeli xoxo"- Y.S. / Yelp / May 26, 2018
"Love getting my facials here. I've tried the hydrafacial and brightening. Both were amazing! I was afraid of the extraction process but it was not too painful at all. Natalia is very gentle and knowledgeable. She explained everything throughout the entire process. Everyone here is super friendly and professional especially Shelly at the front desk. She is the BEST!"- J.F. / Yelp / Apr 30, 2018
"Great facial from Claudia. My skin is always glowing after. Maybe they should think anout adding a 2-3 hr special - I'd be in Heaven"- S.W. / Yelp / Apr 06, 2018
"Just need to be honest for sec, I seriously feel like i've tried almost all the skincare places/people in los angeles and cannot stand the fact that i've never known about ZO skin center until now. I, also, completely loathe the fact that i've wasted thousands of dollars on other estheticians who did not understand my skin and all the money i put into products and facials never brought the same results that these guys have AND I've only had three treatments here so far. Claudia handled all of my skin needs and after seeing her three times, I decided I am not going anywhere else. I've received lasers, peels, facials of all kinds, and nothing compared to the service i received from Claudia who truly cared for my skin and addressed all my concerns. The most important thing I want to say up font though is the fact that ***they are affordable*** and do not rip you off. you will 100% get your money's worth. I am not joking because I have been bamboozled by so many facial, skincare centers and due to my clear vulnerability and desire to perfect my skin, I have handed people money for nothing. A deep cleansing facial is UNDER $200 and a dermafrack treatment is ALSO under $200. They also don't shove products in your face and force you to purchase anything you don't want or need. Claudia gave me a free cleanser and only had me to use their cleansing pads ($35.) She also taught me the beauty of simplicity by using less products on my face. So, i'm not quite sure how/why everyone is saying they make you buy products... my experience here has only been peaceful, calm, and most importantly, simple. I used to go to RejuvaYou in pasadena for my Spectra Laser treatments, but after raising the price of each treatment to $300 this past January, I decided to search for another option. I found ZO Skin Center which immediately made me feel apprehensive, or rather, intimidated, by the name "Obaji" who we all know touts greatness in their products. I literally thought, "this place is going to empty my pockets for certain." Well, I was wrong. My skin has never looked better than any laser treatment I received and Claudia really understood what I needed. After just one visit, my skin was clear and smooth and I left paying half of what I'd pay for a Spectra Laser treatment at RejuvaYou. My second treatment was the dermafrack, which to be honest, is extremely painful and hard to undergo, but well worth it. Just running my hands across my cheeks in the shower has never felt so smooth. i highly recommend getting that done. I have also never received so many compliments about my skin and its new complexion. I 100% recommend ZO skin care and please ask for Claudia. She has literally been a life-saver for me."- F.O. / Yelp / Mar 08, 2018
"I booked a hydrafacial with Natalia and had a wonderful experience. Natalia is knowledgeable and patient -- explaining the entire process and products. My skin felt cleaned and bright. I would definitely recommend this facial to boost your skincare regime."- J.C. / Yelp / Feb 09, 2018
Best Candidates for Thread Lifting
If you are beginning to notice or are already bothered by fine lines, sagging skin, and wrinkled areas on the face and neck, you may be a candidate for thread lifting. Men and women considering this treatment should have a fairly healthy skin tone, but will also be experiencing:
- Moderate wrinkles

- Fine lines
- Unbalanced or asymmetrical facial features
Thread lifting allows Men and women to come to our ZO Skin Centre® undergo facial rejuvenation without surgery. The treatment produces natural-looking results and a smoother, younger appearance.
What to Expect with Thread Lifting
Thread lifting is a treatment that takes place in-office with a local anesthetic. This helps to number the specific treatment sites to help make your skin desensitized to the needle injections. Prior to the actual treatment, we will carefully mark the injection sites with a washable marker to create a grid-like pattern that leads the practitioner to know where to enter and exit the needle. Once the skin feels numb, the threads are then weaved into the skin with a fine needle. Depending on the degree of lift and skin correction needed, we will reposition the skin so that the area appears naturally higher in position. This is accomplished with a gentle pull or one that is a bit more extensive to attain the right result. Sutures are placed and the remaining PDO thread is removed with surgical scissors. This treatment process generally lasts approximately 45 minutes to an hour depending on your specific needs and aesthetic goals.
