PDO threads, also known as Polydioxanone threads, are FDA approved and made of dissolvable suture material that the body can break down. They have been around since the 1980s and have been used in surgery for tissue approximation and wound closure. It typically takes about 6 months for the body to begin dissolving PDO threads. However, results can last about 1-2 years depending on each person.
Thread lifts are a minimally invasive procedure that do not require large incisions or general anesthesia. The threads are strategically placed to help create a more defined and youthful appearance. PDO thread lift can be used to help with the appearance of sagging skin as well as promote the stimulation of collagen and neovascularization. This helps improve skin elasticity, texture, fine lines, and volume. Please consult with our PDO thread specialist for more information and if this non-invasive procedure is right for you!
