A PDO Thread lift is a non-invasive treatment to help loose and sagging skin. A more detailed description is that they are absorbable surgical sutures composed of polydioxanone. These sutures have been used in cardiac surgeries for the past 60 years or more and are the safest materials to be implanted in the body. HOW DOES IT WORKS PDO thread lift is a procedure that involves the insertion of a blunt-tip cannula with very fine absorbable polydioxanone threads into the skin or the subcutaneous fat of the specific areas to be treated. The use of a blunt-tip cannula provides lower risks of bruising and swelling as it does not damage any blood vessels during the procedure. The tension in the PDO threads will provide a lifting effect by pulling the skin together. The effect will be tightening of sagging skin, especially in the brows, jawline, neck, and décolleté. Once the suture threads are introduced into the skin, it triggers the human skin’s natural self-healing abilities. You will be surprised at your skin’s ability to naturally heal itself. The healing process strengthens the skin and is further enhanced by the increase in blood flow to the dermis. When the threads dissolve in the months following the procedure, the bundles of collagen that were formed will keep the skin tight, supple, and rejuvenated.
