Polydioxanone is a fully absorbable suture that has been used for more than 20 years in orthopedics, surgery, plastic surgery and ophthalmology. Pdo threads have a high safety profile, complete absorption and minimal tissue reaction. Pdo threads can reposition sagging skin while also stimulating collagen and elastin production.
The PDO thread is inserted into the subdermal tissue for temporary support of the area being treated. Over the next 6 months, the pdo threads dissolve creating collagen, elastic and hyaluronic acid. The skin becomes thicker, tighter and smoother; giving a more youthful look. Barbed threads are used to reposition, lift and secure static, sagging skin. Smooth threads repair and tighten wrinkled, crepey skin by replacing and adding collagen and elastin to damaged areas, resulting in a smoother, plumper appearance. Each treatment is tailored to your exact needs.
PDO Threads begin to naturally dissolve after about 6 to 8 months. The effects will become more pronounced and natural over time as more collagen is stimulated. Even when the threads fully dissolve, the skin will still stay tight in its lifted position for as long as another 12 months because of the new collagen and elastin fibers that were formed.
WE PROVIDE TOPICAL NUMBING AND LOCAL NUMBING AND AIM TO MAKE THE PROCEDURE AS COMFORTABLE AS POSSIBLE. MOST PATIENTS FIND THE PROCEDURE TOLERABLE AND THE RESULTS WORTH IT.
WE USE PDO MAX THREADS – USUALLY A MIXTURE OF “BARBED” THREADS FOR LIFTING AND “SMOOTH” THREADS FOR SMOOTHING FINE LINES AND WRINKLES AS WELL AS RESTORING VOLUME.
