PDO Threads and Thread Lifting
Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are a special medical grade thread that is thinner than hair, made of protein. PDO threads create "a foreign body reaction" to the area, which can life sagging skin and tissues. Pdo threads also improve blood flow to the area & stimulates neocollagenesis (the production of new collagen in the skin).
Pdo threads are best used in combination with other anti aging treatments such as fillers & neuromodulators (botox,xeomin,dysport.) There are 2 main types of PDO threads used. #1) "Monos" are used to build collagen and can be used anywhere in the face, neck, and body. #2) Lifing threads are thicker than "monos" but also stimulate new collagen. Lifting threads are used to build collagen and lift sagging skin/ tissues.
Pdo threads can be used anywhere in the face, neck, and body. The threads can last up to 2 years. Threads can be used in the cheeks, under eyes, lift sagging brows, around mouth, to outline lips, and neck wrinkles. Topical Numbing cream applied for 30 min
