PDO Thread Lift

The PDO Thread Lift is a treatment that's minimally invasive by nature and aims to tighten the skin and lift it to combat the aging process. Unlike surgical procedures, including the popular facelift, this treatment can lift and tighten the skin without incisions.  Once these threads are inserted into the skin, they attach to the tissue and lift it upward. Their presence in the skin forces the body to increase collagen and elastin production, which also  increases skin volume and smoothes lines and wrinkles. PDO refers to Polydioxanone, a substance that makes up the threads that have been used in the medical world for years during various types of surgical procedures. These threads are most commonly used during cardiothoracic surgery, and once inserted into the body, they are absorbed through a process called hydrolysis. After this absorption, the body heals, and there is no risk of scar tissue in place of the threads. While these threads have proven to be effective in surgical procedures, they're also effective when used in the cosmetic treatment called the PDO Thread Lift. This treatment uses these threads to cause collagen and elastin synthesis. Once they're placed directly below the skin's surface in strategic locations to lift and tighten the skin, the body will respond to their presence and increase collagen production.
