PDO Threads

PDO threads are a type of non-surgical facelift that involves inserting tiny threads made from polydioxanone (PDO) into the skin to lift and tighten sagging or loose areas. PDO is a biodegradable material that has been used in surgical sutures for many years, and is considered safe for use in the body.

During a PDO thread lift procedure, the threads are inserted into the skin using a needle or cannula, and then gently pulled to lift and tighten the skin. The threads are then anchored in place, and over time they stimulate collagen production, which helps to further tighten and lift the skin.

PDO thread lifts can be used to treat a variety of areas on the face and body, including the cheeks, jowls, neck, and even the knees and elbows. They are often used as an alternative to traditional surgical facelifts, as they require minimal downtime and have fewer risks and side effects.

It’s important to have PDO thread lift procedures performed by a licensed healthcare provider who is trained in the proper techniques for inserting the threads. While PDO thread lifts are generally considered safe, they can have side effects such as bruising, swelling, and infection.
