What are PDO Threads?
PDO Threads is a non-invasive treatment that helps loose and sagging skin. More specifically, they are polydioxanone absorbable surgical sutures. Sutures like these have been used for cardiac surgeries for more than 60 years and are the safest materials to place in the body.
Beautiful and healthy faces often have a “V-shape.” Throughout our lives, as we age, the V-shape diminishes or inverts. The PDO threads provide support and keep the tissues in a V-shape by creating a frame. The neck and jawline are two areas where PDO threads are especially effective. It is more difficult to treat effectively with Botox or fillers in this area, which makes PDO Threads an incredible solution for treatment. Threads are inserted beneath the skin to lift loose skin, which heals itself naturally by creating new collagen.
You can get immediate results and long-term benefits with PDO Threads, which take only a few minutes to implement. Despite the fact that the PDO thread will be absorbed by your body, your skin could still react to it. Your skin is also repairing itself around the PDO suture during the 4 to 6 month period needed for it to fully absorb.
