How Do PDO Threads Work?

Our skin is made up of essential proteins such as elastin and collagen, which supports the facial structure and keeps it firm and youthful. As we age, our bodies take longer to produce these proteins, which can result in sagging skin and the appearance of wrinkles making the skin look older.

Of course, the best way to maintain a youthful look on your skin is with preventative care, but how do you reverse the signs of aging you may already be experiencing?

While facelifts have been a go-to option for millions of people looking to turn back the hands of time and reduce the visible signs of aging, science and technology have developed new ways to stay looking younger without the need for invasive and expensive surgical procedures.

PDO (polydioxanone) threads are the latest in beauty trends and have shown incredible results for rejuvenating the skin that appears natural.

What Are They?

These threads are unique because they are absorbable and designed to concentrate and focus on sagging tissue. PDO threads are made from a complex sugar that has been used as a safe suture material for cardiovascular and orthopedic surgical procedures for over 30 years.

PDO thread treatments do not require any cuts or incisions; only injections. The PDO relaxes the muscles and tendons while the body’s natural reaction to a foreign body stimulates blood flow and collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production, all of which keep the skin firm and looking young.

Results from the procedure are immediate, achieving desired outcomes in areas such as:

  • Higher cheekbone contour
  • Defined jawline
  • Softer brow lines
  • Smoother necklines
  • Cat eye contour
  • And more

How Does It Work?

If you are dealing with the visible signs of aging, you may have already begun researching your options for ways to regain that healthy, youthful appearance.

PDO thread lifts offer a safer alternative to surgical options with many benefits, including:

  • Longer lasting results
  • Less risk of negative or adverse reactions
  • No incisions
  • Minimal to no visible scarring
  • Little to no recovery or downtime

PDO treatments are not only non-invasive; they are relatively quick, generally lasting about an hour, and the results are immediate and have shown to last up to a year.
