Non-Surgical collagen formation and lifting with Absorbable Polydiaxanone (PDO) Threads is a common practice now days used for
facial some body parts lifting.
PDO is a strong synthetic mono filament that is absorbed by the body in 6 months, but results might last up to 1 year. There are different threads used for different purposes.
PDO Threads create not only collagen, but also mild fibrosis that strengthen the skin, resulting in pulling up the skin. Results are usually seen immediately and also gradually, the suture restores lost collagen, maintaining volume over time.
Good candidates for the procedure are those patients with mild to moderate jowling of the lower face; patients in their 30-60;
good skin elasticity and thickness; and not too much skin excess.
Contraindications for the procedure are immune diseases, pregnancy, psychiatric diseases and infection on the site.
PDO stands for Polydioxanone. It is a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone.PDO suture are used to perform cardiothoracic surgery (such as open-heart surgery). It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the human body. Your skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months and won’t leave any scar tissue. There are 2 types of threads. Smooth and Barbed. The smooth threads create a mesh under the skin that serves as a foundation for the new collagen. The barbed threads provide grip for underneath skin creating instant definition. The results of the threads last up to 9-12 months and can be combined with other treatments for additional lifting and tightening.
In some cases, they will replace dermal fillers when only lifting is desired, or can be combined with them when both lift and
volume are desired.
The PDO threads represent a whole new genre of facial rejuvenation, one that we believe is here to stay.
