PDO Threads

PDO Sutures: The Ultimate Treatment for a Youthful and Sculpted Appearance

PDO sutures are the most popular and versatile threads—they come in several configurations, and the treatment can be tailored to address multiple issues on both the face and body. The PDO threads are like a suture version of Sculptra—they’re creating a scaffold bio-stimulatory process and are great for people with crepey skin and fine lines who want to improve their skin quality and texture. On the face, lifting-type threads can subtly lift a brow, boost the cheeks, sharpen a jawline, streamline a double chin, or tighten the neck.

What are PDO Threads

Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are a particular medical-grade thread thinner than hair and made of protein. Research has confirmed that PDO improves the blood flow to the area, stimulating neocollagenesis (the production of new collagen in the skin), which produces lifting and smoothing soft tissue with thread placement in the face, neck, or décolleté.

How are PDO threads used in cosmetic procedures?

PDO threads are inserted under the skin using a thin needle or cannula, which creates a temporary scaffold to support the skin and stimulate collagen production. The threads can be placed in various patterns, depending on the treated area and the desired results. PDO threads are commonly used to lift and tighten sagging skin on the face, neck, and body and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.

Key Benefits

  • Stimulates collagen production to the surrounding tissue that helps with both immediate lifting and continued results even after the thread dissolves
  • It is an easy and effective technique for creating a scaffold to support and tighten the sagging tissues

PDO Threads – Mid Face Lift

A beautiful and healthy face has a "V-shape." With the aging of tissues and the action of gravity, this "V-shape" gets lost. The idea behind the PDO threads is to either create a scaffolding to support the tissues and keep them in the "V-shape" or, where necessary, to delicately Lift the tissues and reposition the skin to recreate the "V-shape" where it’s been lost.
