PDO threads (polydioxanone) are synthetic polyester threads that have been used safely
for surgical applications for the past 40 years. Threads are placed deep into the skin to
stimulate three effects:
1. Approximation of tissue leading to skin tightening.
2. Skin lifting through the mechanical pull.
3. Cellular renewal through collagen stimulation and neovascularization leads to a
reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
Threads are fully absorbed and broken down safely by a process of hydrolysis within three to six months without creating any scar tissue. PDO threads stimulate collagen synthesis (volume and support) and the skin structure created will hold for up to 12 months, with permanent collagen production. There are several types of PDO threads, and each serves its own unique purpose. Depending on your aesthetic goals, your PDO provider may use one or many thread types during your anti-aging treatment.
