A PDO thread lift is an effective cosmetic technique to lift and tighten sagging skin tissues by stimulating collagen production. As explained above, during the treatment we advance fine, absorbable threads made from polydioxanone (PDO) into the subcutaneous layer of your skin using small needles. PDO threads have been used safely as medical sutures for more than a decade. The presence of these threads in your skin causes micro-injuries that trigger collagen production and tissue contraction. The threads gradually dissolve and will be absorbed into your body over approximately six months, leaving new collagen in their place.
With a PDO thread lift, we can use mono threads to create a superficial lift or cog threads, which can be placed deeper in your sub-dermal skin. These systems give us the scope to address different issues and adapt the lift for your individual case.
