PDO threading, also known as polydioxanone threading, is a cosmetic procedure that involves the use of dissolvable threads to lift and tighten sagging skin. It is a non-surgical alternative to facelifts and is primarily used for facial rejuvenation.
The threads used in PDO threading are made of a biocompatible material called polydioxanone. This material has been used for many years in various medical applications, including surgery. The threads are typically inserted into the skin using a fine needle and are strategically placed to provide support and lift to areas of the face that have started to sag or lose elasticity.
Once the threads are inserted, they create a slight tension in the skin, which helps to lift and tighten it. Additionally, the threads stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that gives the skin its structure and elasticity. As the threads dissolve over time, the collagen synthesis continues, further improving the skin’s texture and firmness.
PDO threading can be used to target specific areas of the face, such as the cheeks, jowls, eyebrows, and neck. The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia and takes about 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the extent of treatment. Some mild swelling, bruising, or redness may occur after the procedure, but these effects typically subside within a few days.
One of the advantages of PDO threading is that it provides immediate results, with further improvement over several weeks as collagen production increases. The effects of the procedure can last for several months, and additional treatments can be done to maintain or enhance the results.
Lips lose volume, color, and elasticity with age. We use a lip filler that adds volume, smooths upper lip lines for up to one year, and enhances lip color. Designed specifically for the movement of lips, it uses an innovative cross-linking gel for precise, natural-looking results.
