PDO Threading is a minimally invasive treatment that tightens sagging skin tissue and replaces lost volume by lifting and promoting collagen production.
PDO Threads to Tighten Sagging Skin
During treatments, threads made of PDO (Polydioxanone) are introduced into the deeper layers of the skin. Once placed in the face, neck or body, these threads have 3 highly impactful effects on the skin:
- Instant skin lifting
- Skin tightening by contracting fat tissue
- Collagen stimulation, which promotes cellular renewal and improves your skin’s texture, fine lines, and elasticity.
PDO thread lifting is versatile, allowing us to treat practically all areas of the body, including the nasolabial folds, lips, eyelids, crow’s feet, glabella, arch of the eyebrows, neck, knees, periocular area, abdomen, inner thighs, buttocks, hands and more.
PDO threads function through the use of hypodermic needles preloaded with a synthetic monofilament suture containing Polydioxanone (PDO). The PDO suture stimulates neocollagenesis, helping us replace lost collagen! Polydioxanone is FDA-approved and is some of the safest material that can be used in the body. Over a period of 4-6 months, your skin will fully absorb the PDO threads (sutures) without leaving any scar tissue.
PDO threads are inserted into the skin with sterile needles or cannulas. Once inserted, your provider will “zip” up sagging skin onto the barbed threads, providing you with an instant lift! Multiple barbed threads are used on each side of the face for a facelift or neck lift. Smooth threads target fine lines and wrinkles and can help replace lost collagen in many areas of the body. You may feel the threads under your skin until they have dissolved. Depending on the areas treated, the procedure may take 30-60 minutes to contour. There may be slight discomfort during the procedure, but because of the improved techniques and use of lidocaine, clients experience less pain.
The result is a firmer, more supple, and more youthful look to the treated areas. If you’re curious to know if you’re a good candidate for PDO Thread Treatments at DIME Medical Artistry, contact our team today!
