Welcome to Revive Medical Spa

A Non-Surgical Smooth & Lift

PDO (Polydioxanone) threads are a non-surgical treatment that can improve skin texture and laxity concerns. PDO Threads come in two varieties: smoothing and lifting. Smooth PDO Threads provide immediate structure and skin rejuvenation, improving texture, tightening skin, and stimulating new collagen development for long term collagen production. Stronger molded Lifting PDO Threads lift heavier tissue and stimulate collagen growth to improve skin texture and laxity.
