What are PDO Threads?

They are hypodermic needles preloaded with an absorbable PDO suture.

PDO stands for Polydioxanone.  It’s a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone.  PDO sutures are used to perform cardiothoracic surgery (such as open-heart surgery).  It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body.

Your skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months & won’t leave you with any scar tissue.

1.  Preloaded needle is inserted into the skin.

2.  PDO thread stays beneath the skin when removing the needle.

Restoring the V Shape.  A beautiful and healthy face has a “V-Shape”.  With the ageing of tissues and the action of gravity, this “V-Shape” diminishes or inverts.  This is necessary to delicately lift the tissues and reposition the skin.

How does it work?

Controlled Healing:

In medical terms “Selective Inflammatory Response”.  It is the principle behind a lot of aesthetic procedures (such as Fractional Laser, Chemical Peels & Micro-Needling). Our skin is very good at repairing itself, and by inserting PDO threads we make it “heal” itself by creating new collagen, naturally!

Your skin gently reacts to the inserted threads. Yes, PDO is fully absorb-able, but that doesn’t mean your skin won’t react to it.  During the 4 to 6 months needed to fully absorb the PDO suture, your skin is also repairing itself around it.  It’s “controlled healing” happening underneath the skin.

Although PDO Threads can be inserted almost anywhere, one area where they are especially effective is the neck and jawline.  The lower third of the face is challenging to treat effectively with botulinum toxin or injectable fillers..

Mesh or Lift?

There are two types of procedures with PDO Threads: 

The first one (Using Smooth Threads) consists of creating a mesh under the skin (i.e. 2 sutures inserted vertically & 3 sutures horizontally).  Sort of like a #hashtag, or a net.  This Mesh will serve as the foundation for our new collagen production.  This technique tightens the skin naturally from within.  Results appear naturally, without any drastic change! 

The other technique (using barbed threads) is utilized to produce a more dramatic and immediate result.  The PDO sutures have “barbs”, which provide a grip underneath the skin.  Sutures are inserted the same way, except they can be pulled in 1 or 2 directions, creating an instant skin re-positioning.  Just like with the Smooth Threads, the skin will then build new collagen which will secure the lift!
