The collagen and elasticity in our skin diminishes as we age which causes sagging and wrinkles. While skin aging is completely normal, it often causes people to feel less confident in how they look. There are many aesthetic treatment options available to improve signs of skin aging, one of which being PDO thread treatment.
PDO threads are a cutting-edge treatment designed to promote tighter, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin. Let’s learn more about PDO threads and how they can give your skin a younger and more radiant appearance.
How Do PDO Threads Work?
PDO (polydioxanone) threads are absorbable threads that work by stimulating the skin’s collagen production process. Since the body will naturally produce more collagen after the administration of PDO threads, the skin will appear tighter and lifted. The threads dissolve completely within six months of insertion, but leave behind collagen that lasts for one to two years!
What Are The Benefits of PDO Threads?
Since PDO threads rejuvenate the skin with your own collagen, the results are natural-looking. Your skin will be visibly rejuvenated, but it won’t be obvious that you received a cosmetic treatment.
There are multiple types of PDO threads to suit a range of needs. At Hermann Aesthetics & Wellness, we use Nova PDO Threads, which come in three varieties: smooth, smooth-twisted, and barbed. Smooth threads provide volume to the skin over time, smooth-twisted threads generate targeted volume in specific areas, while barbed threads lift and tighten the skin.
Polydioxanone has been used for many years as a dissolvable surgical suture. The application of polydioxanone sutures for cosmetic treatments has long been used in Europe with great success, leading practitioners in the U.S. to do the same. PDO (polydioxanone) threads are FDA-approved and minimally invasive, allowing patients to avoid the complications of cosmetic surgery.
Use With Other Aesthetic Treatments
PDO threads are commonly used in conjunction with other aesthetic treatments, such as Botox and dermal fillers, for the best possible results. When combined with other treatments, PDO threads can be further used to correct and prevent signs of skin aging.
