What is P.D.O Threading?
PDO therapy is an effective cosmetic technique that lifts and tighten sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production. It involves the implantation of fine, absorbable polydioxanone threads (similar to those used in medical suturing) into the subcutaneous layer of the skin using small needles. These threads remain implanted in the skin causing micro-injuries that stimulate collagen synthesis and tissue contraction. After 6-8 months, the threads will be absorbed into the body leaving new collagen in their place. Side effects are minimal but may include swelling and bruising that lasts 2-3 days, and patients can continue with normal activities immediately after.
A typical treatment involves placement of the desired number of threads, which may range from a single thread per side but can involve 50 threads or more to treat the face and neck. Various entry points are considered depending on the individual face shape and requirements. Threads which are used to reposition the skin will have the ends protruding after insertion and they are trimmed to below the level of the skin once the desired lift has been achieved. Smooth threads are anchored to lift and stimulate collagen. The lifting effect at this point depending on the areas being treated is almost instant
What does it Treat?
- Brow lift
- Sagging cheeks
- Nose to mouth folds
- Jaw line
You can expect an immediate lift to the treated area, but this will always relax somewhat once the initial swelling has settled down. Appearance is expected to gradually improve over a period of 2-3 months as collagen remodeling occurs.
You wouldn’t want to plan any big social events during the first couple of days, whilst the results are settling down, but following this there is no reason why you shouldn’t fully resume to your everyday routine / social commitments.
