WHAT IS PDO THREAD LIFT?
The PDO (Polydioxanone) thread lift is a non-invasive treatment which lifts and tightens sagging skin tissue, using threads made of PDO. The threads are introduced into the deeper layers of the skin. Once introduced, the threads have 3 amazing effects on the skin:
- Skin tightening. By contracting fat tissue.
- Collagen stimulation. Which promotes cellular renewal and improves skin texture, fine lines and elasticity.
- Instant skin lifting. PDO instant result.
The lifted facial contour will remain for about 12-15 months after procedure, due to the collagen stimulation effects. Six months after the procedure PDO threads will disappear because they are absorbable. Your skin cells are stimulated to produce new collagen, and new blood vessels to improve skin microcirculation. At the same time, the PDO threads cause the fat tissue to contract and produce the skin tightening effect.
ARE THERE DIFFERENT TYPES OF PDO THREADS?
There are many types of PDO threads and this can be confusing for patients and even doctors. In general, PDO threads can be divided into Smooth threads and Barbed threads.
- Smooth threads are used to stimulate collagen.
- Barbed threads are used to lift and reposition the skin.
PDO threads come in different thickness and length. These all affect their quality, tensile strength, effectiveness, and of course, price of your treatment.
