PDO (Polydioxanone) Thread Treatment: 


Also known as thread lifting or thread rejuvenation, this is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure used to lift and tighten sagging skin. It involves the insertion of biocompatible threads under the skin to create a lifting effect and stimulate collagen production, resulting in improved skin texture and firmness. PDO threads gradually dissolve over time, leaving behind a scaffolding of collagen that supports the skin's structure.

Types of PDO Threads: There are different types of PDO threads, each designed to address specific concerns and areas of the face and body:

  1. Smooth Threads: These threads are used to improve skin texture and stimulate collagen production. They are suitable for treating fine lines and wrinkles.

  2. Barbed Threads: Barbed threads have small notches or barbs that anchor to the skin tissue, providing an immediate lifting effect. They are often used for more significant lifting in areas with sagging skin, such as the jawline, neck, and cheeks.

  3. Mesh Threads: Mesh threads create a mesh-like structure under the skin, offering greater support and lift. They are commonly used for nasolabioal folds.

Consultation: The procedure begins with a consultation to assess your goals, concerns, and suitability for the treatment.

Local Topical or Injectable Anesthesia: Numbing cream or local anesthesia is used in the treatment area to minimize discomfort.

Thread Insertion: Using a thin needle or cannula, the threads are inserted into the skin at specific points. The threads are then carefully positioned and adjusted to achieve the desired lifting effect.

Collagen Stimulation: As the threads are inserted, they trigger the body's natural healing response and collagen production. Over time, this new collagen helps improve skin firmness and texture.

Dissolving Process: PDO threads gradually dissolve over a period of 6 months. During this time, the collagen structure they stimulate remains, providing ongoing support to the skin.

Benefits and Considerations:

  • Non-surgical alternative to traditional facelifts or invasive procedures.

  • Minimal downtime compared to surgical options.

  • Stimulates natural collagen production for gradual and natural-looking results.

  • Can be customized to target specific areas of concern.

  • Suitable for individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity.

Risks and Considerations:

  • Possible side effects include bruising, swelling, discomfort, and temporary irregularities.

  • There's a small risk of infection or scarring, although these are rare.

  • As with any cosmetic procedure, it's important to have PDO thread treatment performed by a qualified and experienced medical professional.
