PDO threads are made of polydioxanone (PDO), which is absorbable material that has been used in surgery for many years. It has been proved to be safe in heart surgery for over 35 years.
Research has shown that PDO stimulates neocollagenesis, which encourages the production of new collagen in the skin while the body naturally absorbs the threads in several months.
The PDO thread can be used as a mesh to remove wrinkles or thread in the lift. A lifted appearance can be seen immediately following the treatment; however, the results will improve in the following days and weeks as the PDO stimulates neocollagenesis, which in turn produces collagen. The overall texture of the skin is improved; it becomes thicker, tighter and firmer and other skin issues like open pores, fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed away as well.
Different lengths of thread are used for different areas of the face. Short strands of threads can be used to treat fine lines around the eyes, while thicker strands can be injected into the cheek area or jaw line. It is used to correct drooping cheeks, sagging jawline and neck folds. Since it’s performed in under one hour with minimal breaks, this has become a favorite with people who has mild to moderate skin changes that do not need surgical procedures yet.
The PDO threads can rejuvenate nearly any area of the body using tiny surgical threads made of Polydioxanone, a thread with a well-documented safety record in surgery and wound closure. What areas can a PDO Thread Lift improve?
