PDO Thread Treatment

PDO Thread Treatment

As we age, our skin loses its youthful appearance and signs of aging become more and more obvious. Fine facial lines and sagging skin are just two aging indicators, but they are important areas to address because these early signs of aging indicate a breakdown of the skin’s tissue. The face and neck areas are common areas of concern.

  • Short procedure
  • Natural Results
  • Minimally Invasive
  • Safe and effective
  • FDA approved

  • Not as effective as a surgical procedure
  • Does not address excess skin

FAQ

What are PDO Smooth Threads?

Smooth threads are a type of thread lift that does not pull the skin back like other thread lifts do. They merely stimulate the collagen to help the skin naturally tighten over the month following the treatment. PDO threading is a minimally invasive treatment that tightens sagging skin tissue and replaces lost volume by promoting collagen production.

What is PDO?

Threads are made of PDO (Polydioxanone). This is a synthetic, absorbable, monofilament suture that is safe to use in medical procedures. It has been used in all types of surgery for over a decade. Its main use has been for wound closure. Since it is dissolvable, when used as a suture it doesn’t need to be removed.
When used cosmetically, the threads are inserted in strategic locations and cause micro-injuries that the skin needs to heal. The healing process stimulates the production of collagen, elastin, and fibrin to heal the wound and this creates smoother and younger-looking skin. These also increase blood flow to the skin, giving the nutrients it needs.

What are the benefits of PDO Smooth Threads?

It strengthens your skin giving you a more vibrant look. PDO Smooth Threads work great in the areas that are starting to look tired, like around the eyes, hollows of the cheeks, the upper lip around the mouth, or under the chin. The threads are very versatile. They can be used in many areas easily. They are quick and much less expensive than a traditional facelift.

How do smooth threads compare to Botox or Dysport?

PDO Smooth Threads often get compared to Botox. Botox limits the movement of muscle to decrease the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Botox essentially freezes the muscle for a period of time.
Smooth threads work to boost the skin naturally. They smoothen and tighten the skin by building collagen and other structural proteins to minimize fine lines and wrinkles.
Using Botox and smooth threads in combination has become very popular. They can be done together. Botox halts movement of the muscles to minimize lines and wrinkles while the smooth threads also smooth fine lines, but also plump the skin. The combination work very well together. PDO threads are versatile, allowing us to treat practically all areas of the body, including the nasolabial folds, lips, eyelids, crow’s feet, glabella, the arch of the eyebrows, neck, knees, periocular area, abdomen, inner thighs, buttocks, hands and more.
