PDO Thread lifts utilizing PDO (polydioxanone) suture material are used to temporarily lift and redefine the face particularly in the areas to reduce jowls, elevate the cheek and sculpt the jawline. As they dissolve, they stimulate collagen production further enhancing the beauty of the treatment.
PDO stands for Polydioxanone which is a biodegradable, safe suture material that has been used in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgeries for over 30 years. As a safe raw material that is completely absorbed by the body through hydrolysis, PDO causes minimal tissue reaction and tissue trauma.
PDO thread lifts are a minimally invasive procedure that are strategically placed into the skin. The barbs anchor onto sagging skin and the thread is maneuvered to lift the tissue to create a naturally youthful and defined look. Local anesthesia and other medications are used to minimize any discomfort making this procedure easily tolerated.
The body absorbs the PDO threads in about 6-8 months after insertion, however, results can last up to one year as the PDO can help stimulate collagen production and neovascularization in the skin.
What kind of results can be achieved with PDO threads?
Results can be immediate. You do not have to wait weeks and months to see your results. Although individual results may vary, common results achieved include:
Heart shaped, higher cheekbone contour
Snatched, defined jaw line
Lifting of jowls
Reduced nasolabial fold
Smoother neck lines
