WHAT IS PDO THREADING?
PDO stands for polydioxanone – a complex sugar, with a track record in safety. It’s been used for over a decade as a raw material in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgery for wound closure. It is an absorbable thread that is thinner than a strand of hair and made of protein.
HOW IS THREADING DONE?
Threads are carefully and strategically injected below the skin to act like a micro-injury in the skin so that the body can respond by adding structural proteins (i.e., collagen, elastin, fibrin), which results in smoother, plumper, more youthful-looking skin.
WHO SHOULD DO PDO THREADING?
Anyone looking for a skin boost. This treatment is a skin strengthener. PDO smooth threads might be the perfect solution if you’re tired of looking tired or want to smooth your skin’s texture. Often used in areas of tired skin, to resolve crepey texture, around the eye area, the upper lip, the hollows of the cheeks, under the chin or around the mouth, smooth PDO threads can be placed under the skin where you are looking for tightening or smoothing.
Smooth Threads: Smooth threads are a skin booster. They tighten and smooth the skin helping to minimize fine lines and wrinkles and build collagen and other structural proteins in the skin.
Lifting Threads: A PDO thread lift is a non-surgical facelift where facial skin is lifted and tightened using Polydioxanone (PDO) threads. These threads are anchored and inserted into different layers of the skin using needles, instantly lifting and tightening sagging skin. Anywhere from 1-15 threads may be used per section.
