PDO threads can quickly and effectively contour the neck and jawline as well as erase wrinkles from the skin to combat signs of aging.
What are PDO Threads?
PDO threads, nicknamed the non-surgical facelift, stimulate collagen growth by lifting the face to accentuate the cheeks,
tighten the jawline and diminish the jowls. In recent years, polydioxanone threads have gained recognition in the medical aesthetics industry. The threads can be inserted almost anywhere in the body, but providers have found that they are most effective when treating the neck and jawline.
In addition to stimulating new collagen growth, there are several PDO threads treatment benefits:
• Skin rejuvenation
• Brightened skin tone
• Improvement in skin wrinkles for up to 12 to 18 months
• No surgery and minimal down time
Why You Should Try PDO Threads?
1 Improved elasticity and texture. As we get older, the sun and the aging process naturally takes a toll on our skin’s elasticity and texture. We go from having smooth, soft skin to skin that no longer has the same elasticity as when we were
2 Reduces wrinkles. Like Botox, PDO threads are a great way to reduce the wrinkles on your face. They can help with fine lines that are starting to develop as well as deep folds that you may have had on your face for several years.
3 Brightens skin tone. PDO threads improve the condition of your skin, giving you a more radiant appearance. This
treatment rejuvenates the skin because of the lifting effect, which will give you more defined facial contours.
4 Natural-looking results. Just one PDO treatment makes it possible to reverse unwanted signs of aging and enhance
your overall appearance – all without a painful, invasive process or extended recovery time! Whether you want to
contour your jawline, reduce nasolabial and marionette lines or lift the skin around the eyebrows and cheeks, PDO threads make it possible.
Lidocaine injection applied to the entry points following which threads are introduced into the skin through a fine needle- into either the skin itself, the muscle, or the subcutaneous fat. The
treatment results in an immediate improvement in appearance but the results will improve over ensuing days and weeks as the PDO stimulates neocollagenesis, increasing the amount of collagen in the skin. The appearance of the skin improves in terms of overall texture, becoming thicker, tighter and firmer as fine lines and wrinkles are reduced
Thread-lift treatments result in an instant and natural looking improvement in the appearance of the skin. A process of natural protein synthesis then begins after about 10-14 days. Over the
subsequent weeks results will continue to improve, peaking at around 6 months and lasting for up to 2 years as your own body
produce collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Making this form of non surgical facelift a very long lasting treatment. The thread itself is completely biodegradable and dissolves within 12 weeks, after
which new collagen has formed around the thread to continue to support results, maintaining a smooth and supple texture of the skin.
