The PDO (Polydioxanone) thread lift is a non-invasive treatment that lifts and tightens sagging skin without going under the knife. The threads are introduced into the deeper layers of the skin resulting in 3 effects:
1- Skin tightening. By contracting fat tissue.
2- Collagen stimulation. Which promotes cellular renewal and improves skin texture, fine lines, and elasticity.
3- Instant skin lifting. PDO instant result.
The effects of using PDO suture as a treatment are rejuvenation, lifting effect, toning of the tissue, wrinkle improvement, and hydrated skin. When using them you will see immediate improvements in the appearance of the skin.
After two weeks the body starts the formation of natural protein of the body (elastin and collagen). Production of natural proteins continues up to 6 months until the PDO thread absorption (hydrolysis) is complete.
The lifted facial contour will remain for about 9-12 months after the procedure, due to the collagen stimulation effects. The threads will form an integrated support structure for the tissue of the face because of the formation of new collagen and elastin. This production of new collagen protein results in increased elasticity and firmness of the skin. Inserted with microneedles or cannulas, this powerful synthetic fiber which is absorbed in 4-6 months, leaving the skin firmer, more elastic and better hydrated. At the same time, the PDO threads cause the fat tissue to contract and produce the skin tightening effect.
