PDO Threads

PDO threads (Polydioxanone threads) are a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment used to lift and rejuvenate sagging or aging skin. These threads are made from a biocompatible material called polydioxanone, which has been widely used in the medical field for sutures and wound closure for years. PDO threads offer a non-surgical alternative to facelifts and other skin-tightening procedures. They stimulate collagen production and can be applied to various parts of the face, neck, and body.

PDO threads are implanted under the skin using small needles or cannulas. Once the threads are inserted, the skin looks rejuvenated, filled and lifted. PDO threads are specially designed to anchor the sagging skin and lift it upwards. Because PDO threads stimulate collagen production, they further diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

  • PDO threads provide an immediate lifting effect, and you'll notice an improvement in the treated area's appearance right after the procedure.

  • Over the following weeks and months, the threads gradually dissolve, but their effects persist as they stimulate collagen production. This leads to further skin tightening and improved texture.

Do PDO Threads Hurt?

On the day of the treatment, the face will be cleaned and a numbing topical medication will be applied. The threads will be inserted using small flexible needles. The threads are left in the skin to initiate the formation of an optimal amount of new collagen and elastin. 

Some pain can occur after the procedure. The pain is caused by the body’s natural response to the threads and the needles that put them into place. Tightening of the excess skin can cause temporary discomfort as well. 

How long do the results last?

The PDO threads dissolve after six to nine months, but their effects can last up to two years, thanks to the production of collagen.
