Made of dissolvable sutures, polydioxanone (PDO) threads are used to either lift sagging tissue using barbed threads or to soften fine lines and creases using smooth threads. These collagen-stimulators have become incredibly popular and are commonly used in combination with fillers and Botox to lift the heaviness of the skin, especially in the mid-face and lower face.
As the PDO threads dissolve naturally, the skin tissue is left with more collagen than before. It’s a powerful anti-aging procedure! Threads are used for brow lifts, to lift cheek volume, improve smile lines, define lip borders, lift jowls, and tighten the lower face and jawline.
The PDO treatment process takes about 30 minutes, and you can go about your daily tasks immediately after your appointment. The threads are naturally dissolved in the body within nine months, but the aesthetic results will last for up to two years!
