In the past, the only way to truly address sagging or loose facial skin, such as jowls and drooping cheeks, was facelift surgery.
At Murphy Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa, we offer thread lift procedures that can rejuvenate the face and neck without surgery.
So why should you choose a PDO thread lift at our Reno, NV, practice?
Recovery after a thread lift is much easier than recovery from a facelift. Patients only require local anesthesia, they do not require supervision afterward, and can return home immediately after the procedure.
Thread lifts are minimally invasive and very low-risk. While some swelling may occur, there is virtually no risk of scarring or other complications. Our team uses premium PDO threads to ensure beautiful results.
Since this treatment is less involved than facelift surgery, it is also much more affordable. If you are a good candidate for PDO threads, our team can help you rejuvenate your appearance at a lower price.

What Are PDO Threads Made of?
NovaThreads' patented threads are made of a clear, biocompatible material called polydioxanone (PDO). This polymer has been safely used in medicine for years in applications ranging from suturing wounds closed to cardiothoracic surgery.
PDO stimulates collage production without creating scar tissue. It is naturally absorbed by the body within four to six months after insertion. The threads come in a variety of styles in order to address each patient's unique concerns.
Are Patients Usually Happy with Their Results?
Which areas of concern can be treated?
PDO threads can be used to improve folds around the nose and mouth, lift sagging cheeks, and redefine the jaw.
The neck is notoriously hard to treat but we can reduce thin skin and loose tissue in this area.
Like the neck, the skin on the chest can become thin and lined. PDO threads can restore a more youthful look.
