Sagging and thinning skin are telltale signs of aging. But, many cosmetic patients today don’t want to undergo surgical procedures (and the risks that they involve) to reverse aging skin.
With PDO threads, we have a non-surgical solution to signs of aging that can visibly lift, tighten, or volumize the skin. This is safe, FDA-approved cosmetic treatment has long been used in Europe to successfully rejuvenate the skin without many of the risks associated with thread facelifts of the past.
What Are PDO Threads?
PDO threads are fully dissolvable sutures. The material that comprises PDO threads has long been used as a dissolving suture in medical surgery.
For cosmetic purposes, PDO threads dissolve completely within 6 months of the initial procedure. Inserting the threads stimulates a process known as neocollagenesis, which leads to increased collagen production in the skin. Even after they dissolve, the threads leave behind newly-developed collagen that visibly lifts, tightens, volumizes, and smooths the skin.
In addition to being a safe, non-surgical treatment option, PDO threads are popular among patients because they require little to no downtime. Usually, patients need to take no longer than one night off of their regular activities.
What Can PDO Threads Be Used For?
PDO threads are recommended for patients with mild to moderate:
- Wrinkles and fine lines, including nasolabial folds, marionette lines, crow’s feet, and even necklace lines (horizontal neck lines)
- Crepey, thinning skin
- Sagging skin
- Volume loss in the skin
- Uneven skin texture
Note that candidates for PDO threads must not have had neurotoxins, like Botox, or dermal fillers in the last two weeks.
