PDO (Polydioxanone) lifting and smoothing thread therapy provide a non-surgical, minimally invasive material and technique to generate the patient’s natural collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production, offering a natural looking smoothing and lifting of the face lasting approximately 12 months. PDO absorbable sutures have been used in gynecologic and all other branches of surgery for over 30 years.
PDO lifting threads provide both an immediately visible lift and smoothing when the specially designed threads are inserted into the skin as well as delayed benefits. As the threads dissolve over the next several months, they stimulate the body to form new collagen, giving the patient lasting results. PDO lifting threads are particularly effective for smoothing, tightening, and lifting the nasolabial lines, marionette lines, jowl, and the corners of the mouth. The effects are a relaxed, rejuvenated appearance with a more youthful contour. The PDO thread lift requires no surgery. The procedure should be scheduled at least two weeks before an important event in case of swelling or bruising. Bruising can be minimized by following our holistic anti-bruising protocol beforehand.
PDO smoothing threads improve blood flow to the skin providing increased nutrient delivery and thus skin rejuvenation, increased volume, better lip and smile lines, and enhances skin tone. They can be used to create beautiful lip borders, smooth lip lines (“smokers” lines), refresh smile lines and thicken crepe paper skin.
PDO threads can be used alone or combined with botulinum toxin and dermal fillers with very few contraindications, side effects, and minimal downtime.
