Perk Up With PDO Threads

Shot Bar knows the magic secret to defying gravity and restoring your youthful appearance. (We know, we’re basically wizards.) It’s a nonsurgical soft tissue facelift! Our procedure for PDO threads in Lincoln Park, Chicago is a proactive treatment that gives you the power to prevent or reduce skin aging on the face. Skin aging happens naturally due to the loss of collagen that occurs as we get older. This treatment can lift years off your face, and it’s fully customizable to you!

Why We Love It


A PDO thread lift is an FDA-cleared medical treatment, approved for aesthetic use.


This treatment serves as a nonsurgical, minimally invasive alternative to surgery with less downtime and no scarring.

Immediate Results

Due to the nature of a PDO thread lift, you will notice an immediate lifting and tightening of the skin.

For the Science Babes

PDO (polydioxanone) threads work by using hypodermic needles loaded with synthetic sutures to gently place a support system beneath the skin for lifted results. From there, they will begin to create cellular renewal and collagen production to improve skin laxity and droopiness.

The thread will remain under the skin for four to six months and slowly dissolves. However, due to cellular regeneration and rejuvenation, the results can last much longer! Additionally, since there are no cuts or incisions, the threads are placed without leaving any scarring marks or permanent blemishes.

The Play-by-Play

The PDO Threads Process

Step 1


When you come to Shot Bar for your consultation for PDO threads in Lincoln Park, Chicago, the minute you walk in, you become a Shot Bar Hotshot! One of our providers will discuss your areas of concern with you and determine if you are a good candidate. They will create a customized map of where the threads should be placed.

Step 2


The procedure takes about an hour and is done by one of our highly trained medical professionals. The strategically placed threads will grasp onto the loose skin as they are repositioned and securely elevated. Once perfectly placed, the threads will provide an instant lifting effect.

Step 3


Though you will see instant results, some report experiencing a little discomfort in the days following the procedure. Downtime is usually 2 to 7 days. Try to avoid sleeping on your face or side in the days following the procedure. Ask us about post-care changes to your medication or skincare routine.
