PDO threads — immediate effects, lasting results
PDO threads can be used in a range of aesthetic treatments for face and body. By inserting these absorbable threads under the skin (using a cannula), sagging skin tissues are lifted and tightened. Once in place, the multiple fine PDO threads create a network that acts as a support or scaffold for the tissue. This produces an immediate and visible lifting effect whilst also promoting natural collagen production.
There are two main types of PDO thread, simple threads and cogs. Simple threads stimulate the production of collagen, which acts over time to tighten the skin. Cogs are longer threads which grip the underside of the skin and have an immediate lifting effect.
Types of PDO thread treatment
One of the advantages of PDO threads is their sheer versatility. They can be used to treat most areas of the face and neck, including:
- Upper face. Forehead lines, crows feet and used in brow lifts
- Mid Face. Tear trough correction, nasolabial folds, cheek enhancement, smokers’ lines. Used in 5 point face lifts and 10 point full face and jaw lift
- Lower face. Lips, marionette lines, chin wrinkles. Used in jaw line lift
- Neck and décolletage. Used in neck lifts, submental tensioning and platysmal hypertrophy.
PDO threads can also be combined together with other treatments including dermal fillers and PRP (Plasma Rich Protein).
