PDO Threads


The PDO Thread Lift is a treatment which tightens and improves skin laxity, using threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO). The threads are introduced into the layers of the skin.  Once introduced, the threads produce 3 effects in the skin:

  • Instant Skin Lifting through mechanical effects
  • Cellular Renewal, through Collagen stimulation, and neovascularisation to improve skin texture, fine lines and elasticity
  • Skin Tightening, by contracting fat tissue

About 6 months after the procedure, the PDO threads will disappear through simple hydrolysis (they are absorbable). The lifted facial contours will remain for about 3-6 months more, due to the cellular rejuvenation effects.  Your skin cells are stimulated to produce new collagen, and new blood vessels to improve skin micro-circulation, at the same time, the PDO threads cause the fat tissue to contract, producing a skin tightening while also improving skin laxity.
