PDO threadS

PDO threads

Polydioxanone (PDO) thread lifts utilize a dissolvable polyester suture to tighten and lift your skin. It’s less invasive than facelift surgery. This procedure can often be performed in under 45 minutes without needing to go under a scalper nor anesthesia. This type of thread has been around in surgeries since the 1980s and is made from a colorless polyester that breaks down in your body. This is a vertical lifting technique in which short wedge-shaped PDO sutures are inserted vertically downward in the anterior malar and submalar areas. PDO can treat most parts of your face that are experiencing signs of aging around your jaw, cheeks, and eyes. Depending on your age, this procedure can last up to 4 years.
