What are PDO threads?
A Polydiaxenone (PDO) thread is a form of surgical suture used in deep closures and dissolves in approximately 4-6 months, depending on thickness of the thread. As PDO threads break down, they stimulate formation of natural collagen and elastin, and actually enhance the health and quality of subcutaneous tissue, thus improving the skin’s overall texture and youthfulness.
PDO threads lifting technique
First, the number and placement of the threads is determined during the consultation. The treatment is considered to be comfortable, with minimal bleeding or downtime. A numbing cream or local anesthesia can be applied before starting the procedure. Threads are inserted into the SMAS area of the skin. Lifting is achieved with a barbed thread that anchors into the tissue as the needle is removed. This reshapes the face, lifts sagging areas, and tightens loose skin immediately. The treatment takes no more than 30 minutes.
The immediate result is followed by the gradual collagen regeneration over the next 3-6 months. This improves skin texture and fine lines, and gives your skin more elasticity.
