How Do They Work?
PDO threads are inserted under the skin providing you with immediate lift or volume. The threads dissolve naturally over the course of several months synthesizing new collagen and elastin production in the treated area. The result is a nonsurgical lift with little to no downtime, generally lasting 18-24 months. Most procedures take less than an hour.
Types of PDO Threads
There are several types of PDO thread techniques used to achieve different results.
Mesh work – PDO threads are inserted in a mesh work or hashtag pattern (vertically and horizontally) under the skin. This mesh work pattern serves as a foundation for new collagen and elastin production. This technique tightens the skin naturally over time, smoothing the area and providing noticeable volume where volume has been lost due to age.
Volume threads – These affordable screw-shaped PDO threads are used to add volume in several areas. In the lip border, they add a “lip flip”. They can lift forehead lines and other hollow areas such as smile lines and more.
Lifting – Barbed PDO threads are inserted under the skin to provide a significant lift to the surrounding tissue, giving immediate results. Barb threads have the ability to immediately reposition excess skin and facial fat pads that begin to descend as you age. This natural repositioning reduces the appearance of age markers and deep expression lines (i.e. nasolabial folds, marionette, jowls) while restoring a youthful V-shape to the face. Barb PDO threads also promote the body’s production of collagen and elastin which effectively maintains the lift, once the threads have dissolved. Results generally last 18-24 months.
Mesh Filling – This unique treatment used a 16-thread sock-like mesh, which is usually used together with dermal filler, to instantly add volume to several area. Beautiful results are seen in the tear trough, the bridge of the nose, smile lines, brow furrows, frown lines and more.
