The PDO skin booster or Polydioxanone is a
colorless, crystalline, biodegradable synthetic polymer. PDO sutures have many
benefits over other sutures like better strength, uniformity of the caliber,
good biological tolerability, totally absorbable by hydrolysis and reabsorption
by the lymphatic system.
PDO threads increase the production of
collagen and hyaluronic acid and improves circulation. By stimulating new
collage, it results in increase elasticity and firmness of the skin.
Bio-stimulation is a new approach that can lift the face, neck and body. The
insertion of these filaments which are absorbed in the tissue leaves the skin
firmer, more elastic and better hydrated.
The results of using medithread PDO suture
as a treatment are: rejuvenation, lifting effect, toning of the tissue,
wrinkling improvement and hydrated skin. Results are seen right away and after
two weeks the body starts the synthesis of elastin and collagen. Results continue
up to six to nine months until the suture is completely absorbed, however the
aesthetic effects might last up to 18 months.
