PDO (Polydioxanone) Threads
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The PDO threads work in two ways, building your own collagen through the body’s natural healing process and also creating bio-stimulation so your skin develops better blood flow which will tighten your skin and improve the skin texture and look.
THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF PROCEDURES WITH PDO THREADS
PDO Smooth Threads: Smooth threads are placed under your skin in a hashtag pattern which brings back the lost blood flow to the area which will repair and tighten the skin. PDO smooth threads can be used to smooth wrinkled, crepey skin by replacing and adding collagen and elastin to damaged areas. These threads will build a solid foundation of new collagen production providing natural results.
PDO Lifting Threads: Lifting threads are used to produce an immediate visible result for sagging skin which will get better over time. Lifting threads are designed to pull up and re-drape the skin. PDO lifting threads will restore that “beautiful V-shape” to your face and have the same benefits of the smooth threads, giving you an immediate benefit that increases over a 6 month period.
PDO threads are fully absorbed in about 4-6 months for results up to 12-24 months. PDO threads are often used with dermal filler and platelet rich plasma (PRP) to create a scaffold under the skin which will provide multiple short and long term benefits of total facial aesthetics.
