A PDO thread lift is a technique that tightens and lifts your skin using a dissolvable suture. PDO Threads are a less invasive operation than a facelift, and they can usually be completed within 45 minutes without the use of a scalpel.
A biodegradable polyester suture is used in polydioxanone (PDO) thread lifts. They’re excellent for renewing your skin, while some newer thread lifts are more effective at raising sagging skin.
Let’s look at what distinguishes a PDO from other thread lifts, as well as what to expect during the procedure.
What distinguishes PDO from others?
PDO threads are one of three popular types of sutures used in thread lift treatments. Polylactic acid (PLA) and polycaprolactone are the other two kinds (PCA).
PDO have been employed in operations since the 1980s and are the oldest of the three. They’re made of a colorless polyester that degrades after around 6 months in your body.
The presence of these sutures in your skin causes fibroblasts, which are cells in your body that create collagen, to produce more. Collagen is a protein that provides structure and elasticity to your skin. One of the main causes of aging skin is the loss of collagen.
PDO are further classified into three types:
Mono threads made of PDO. Sutures that are smooth and stimulate collagen formation to help revitalize your skin.
Cog threads made of PDO. To offer support and raise areas of your face, these threads include barbs that latch into your skin like miniature fishhooks.
Screw threads made of PDO. These are used to help restore volume to sunken areas of your skin and are made up of one or two interlaced threads.
