PDO (Polydioxanone) threads are a non-surgical, minimally invasive aesthetic treatment used to lift and tighten sagging skin on the face and neck. They work by stimulating collagen production and providing structural support to the skin, resulting in a more youthful and lifted appearance.
During the procedure, thin, dissolvable threads are inserted into the skin using a fine needle. The threads are made of a biocompatible material called polydioxanone, which has been used in surgical procedures for many years. The threads are carefully placed in the subcutaneous tissue and then gently pulled to lift and tighten the skin.
PDO threads can be used to treat a variety of facial concerns, including sagging skin on the cheeks, jawline, and neck, as well as wrinkles and fine lines. The treatment can also be used to enhance the contours of the face and improve overall skin texture.
Are there any side effects?
PDO threads are a relatively safe procedure, with few risks or side effects. Patients may experience some mild swelling, bruising, or discomfort after the procedure, but these typically resolve within a few days. Results can be seen immediately after the treatment and continue to improve over the next several weeks as collagen production is stimulated.
It’s important to note that PDO threads are a temporary solution and the effects typically last between 6-12 months. However, the treatment can be repeated as necessary to maintain the desired results
