PDO Thread Lift

With the loss of youthful volume and a weakened facial support structure, the aging face begins to appear longer as skin tissues loosen. Though conventional means of lifting the face involve surgery, the PDO thread lift is a non-surgical option that safely and effectively lifts and contours sagging skin on the face, neck and jawline using Novathreads. These hypodermic needles are FDA-approved and contain a synthetic PDO (polydioxanone) suture that is absorbable.

With two types of PDO threads and techniques, Nu-Lift and Nu-Mesh, treatment at Modern Aesthetica is tailored to the individual and their specific aesthetic goals. In either case, as sutures are placed below the skin’s surface, the body elicits a natural inflammatory and healing response by signaling the production of collagen. Essentially, the newly formed collagen secures the lifting of the skin, and over time, it continues to produce results.

The Lunch Time Facial

Often called the lunchtime facial or facelift, the PDO thread lift is part of a revolutionary technology using absorbable sutures and is the preferred treatment to look up to 10 years younger in 1-2 hours, without going under the knife.

First, the PDO threads are safe and are used regularly in high-risk procedures and surgeries, including open-heart surgery. Since the body naturally absorbs the sutures, there is zero risk of scar tissue formation. There are no incisions or cuts necessary, only injections. This ensures that downtime is minimal, and any discomfort is easily managed with ibuprofen or acetaminophen. Finally, while individuals will notice an immediate lifting of the skin, they will continue to experience results as collagen production continues. Thus, patients can enjoy a youthful shape to their face for up to two years!

Non-Surgical Facelift Using PDO Threads

Having been used for years in the body, PDO threads produce extraordinary benefits in facial rejuvenation such as reducing wrinkles and lifting the cheeks, jawline and neck. What’s more is that the threads are naturally broken down by the body and do not leave scarring behind. Additionally, the versatility of PDO threads allows them to be placed according to a patient’s specific aesthetic requests or goals.

The Nu-Lift technique provides a more immediate result and utilizes threads containing tiny barbs on the length of the entire suture. When placed in a specific area such as the cheeks, the barbs gather and lift the facial tissue. The body will then build collagen around the suture and barbs, providing a long-lasting result.

The Nu-Mesh technique involves placing smaller threads vertically and horizontally under the skin, in a mesh formation. The mesh becomes the foundation for collagen production and results are noticed gradually, yet naturally, as fine lines diminish, and skin is tightened.

As a leader in anti-aging services throughout Los Angeles, Santa Monica and Culver City, Dr. Daniel Moghadam delivers individualized care that considers the unique chemistry and facial anatomy of each patient.

Dr. Danny keeps it real! With gratitude, I have decided to write this review. I got a few subtle services done with him and I have been really happy about it. I proudly say that I trust his insight and knowledge. He truly is a talented physician and works from his heart. I am fortunate to have found this place. Thank you Modern Aesthetica!

Audra L.

I was referred to Dr. Dan via a couple clients/friends. I went in there not really knowing what to expect...but I needed help filling in some lines without actual filler. He's honest and even told me I DIDN'T need things I though I might. When I say instant results...I mean it. Shocking! He's professional, courteous and straight to the point. It's been 3 days and I can't stop staring at my face...very well knowing the results I already see will be even better in 2 weeks. Amazing. Referring everyone I know!

Top notch facility. Top notch doctor. Very happy to have found this place! Thanks Dr M!

Michael D.

Dr. Daniel has helped me with my fitness journey so much! He is a truly caring physician and was available for me every step of the way. A lot of weight loss and fitness doctors use the same template, but I KNOW he treats every patient specifically, and adjusts the regimen to tailor it to my needs.

David P.

I went to go see Dr. Danny recently and he treated with kit gloves. I couldn't be happier. He's a phenomenal doctor and what a beautiful facility.

Kayvan M.

I was referred to Dr. Danny by a friend who got great results with his fitness regimen. I had hit a plateau in terms of my results so that’s why I first went to Modern. I didn’t know what to expect but I was amazed at everything Dr. Danny shared with me. He gave me some great advice on a medicine based fitness regiment and customized something just for me. Loving the results. Thank you!

Stacey R.

I had a Vampire Facial here and the results were amazing. Dr. Danny made sure I looked great for my best friend's party 1 week after. Finding a great doctor in Los Angeles can be tough but I think I found a solid one here! If you want to look your VERY best, I highly recommend Dr. Danny and the entire staff at Modern Aesthetica!
