PDO Threads Treatment
PDO threads, which have been a staple in medicine for nearly 40 years, are versatile and dissolvable threads with various applications. They are considered among the safest body implants, as they are biocompatible and may already exist in your body if you've had dissolvable stitches. PDO threads play a pivotal role in stimulating collagen and elastin production while gradually dissolving over 4-6 months. Collagen and elastin provide structural support beneath the skin, helping combat the signs of aging, and the results can endure for 12 to 16 months.
Types of PDO Threads
PDO threads are commonly utilized in two primary categories:
PDO Lifting Threads
PDO lifting threads incorporate barbs or cones to reposition the skin. Placed in the fat layer, they provide structural support and stimulate new collagen production. These threads are suitable for individuals with good skin quality and mild to moderate sagging, such as mild nasolabial folds or marionette lines with healthy skin.
PDO Smooth Threads
PDO smooth threads are painless and glide smoothly under the skin. They are designed to stimulate collagen production and provide support without lifting or repositioning the skin. Typically used in multiple sessions, they target specific areas like crow's feet, cheek lines, frown lines, and nasolabial folds. Patients may require 3-5 sessions every 4-6 weeks to achieve their desired results.
PDO threads can also complement other treatments, such as Botox, to address deep crevices between the eyebrows that may not be fully resolved with Botox alone. PDO twist threads, known for their coiled shape, offer increased surface area, leading to enhanced collagen production and more significant results. However, using PDO twist threads for skin treatments requires skill and may cause some discomfort. An experienced professional can make adjustments to ensure patient comfort.
Aside from facial treatments, PDO threads can be used on various body parts, including arms, legs, and the abdomen, to address skin laxity and acne scars. They are particularly effective in defining and volumizing the lip border when used as lip fillers.
In summary, PDO threads are a versatile and effective solution for stimulating collagen and elastin production, providing essential support to the skin, and addressing various aesthetic concerns in a safe and minimally invasive manner when administered by a qualified professional.
