PDO Threads

PDO threads are great adjunct therapy for acne scars, hair loss, skin laxity, sagging jowls, nonsurgical facial rejuvenation, cellulite, and body contouring.

Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are biocompatible and biodegradable sutures widely used in medical procedures, now revolutionizing aesthetic medicine. These threads are inserted into the skin to lift and tighten sagging tissues, stimulate collagen production, and enhance skin texture and elasticity.

PDO threads are carefully placed under the skin using fine needles. This procedure activates the body’s natural healing response, promoting collagen synthesis and improving skin structure over time. The threads provide immediate support to sagging skin, while the long-term benefits continue to evolve as collagen is remodeled and rejuvenated.

PDO threads are absorbable suture material and depending on the type, brand, strength and techniques all determine how long threads can last, on average anywhere from 1-2 years.

Patients are numbed with local anesthesia for comfort to make the procedure as painless as possible.

In the Aesthetic world nothing is meant to replace something else.  All treatments, products and devices when used correctly by a trained professional then a combination of treatments are used to achieve the desired optimal results. Combination Therapies are the best approach when it comes to nonsurgical rejuvenation.

Ideal candidates are those with mild to moderate skin laxity or those that want an extra boost/tightening as the PDO threads come in various types and treatment is customized according to each patient’s need and skin type. Smoothing threads are for almost anyone for collagen induction whereas lifting threads are to lift various areas on the face and body.

How do PDO threads work?

The PDO thread is contained in a thin, hollow cannula and inserted into the skin’s sub-dermal layers. The thread grabs at loose tissue inside the skin and is repositioned as the needle is removed, which lifts the skin tighter.

Do PDO threads build collagen?

The PDO threads remain under the skin until they eventually dissolve, spurring the body to naturally produce more collagen to tighten the skin. The threads also anchor the skin and lift it upward.
