PDO therapy is an effective cosmetic technique that lifts and tighten sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production. It involves the implantation of fine, absorbable polydioxanone threads (similar to those used in medical suturing) into the subcutaneous layer of the skin using small needles.
PDO Thread Treatment FAQ’s
What are PDO threads?
The aim of PDO threads is to improve the appearance of the skin and stimulate collagen. Threads can be inserted anywhere on the face, neck, jaw – also giving a full brow lift.
This procedure involves a 90mm thread being inserted via a cannula. The cannula is then removed, leaving the thread in place.
This is done under local anaesthetic
In this particular area, 5 threads are used either side of the face. After all the threads have been inserted, they are then trimmed so they are no longer visible.
Swelling may be present following procedure
The threads will then dissolve over the following weeks, leaving the face-lifted. This generally takes 3 months to get the best results.
Results last around 18-24 months
There are various threads, achieving different results. Threads can be used in most areas of the face and neck and prices vary depending on the area.
