PDO (Polydioxanone) threads are a popular and minimally invasive cosmetic treatment used to rejuvenate and lift sagging skin, reduce wrinkles, and improve overall facial contours. These threads are made from a biocompatible and absorbable material called polydioxanone, which has been widely used in the medical field for sutures for many years. PDO threads are designed to stimulate collagen production and promote tissue tightening, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
The PDO thread procedure involves the insertion of these threads beneath the skin’s surface using a fine needle or cannula. Once inserted, the threads create a supportive framework, lifting and repositioning sagging skin and soft tissues. This immediate lift effect is further enhanced over time as the body naturally absorbs the PDO threads while stimulating collagen production. PDO thread treatments can be used on various areas of the face, including the cheeks, jawline, neck, and even non-facial areas like the arms and buttocks. The procedure is often referred to as a “non-surgical facelift” because it can provide noticeable results without the need for invasive surgery, making it a popular choice for individuals seeking a more youthful appearance without the associated downtime and risks of traditional facelift surgery.
