How the PDO Thread Lift Works
This procedure utilizes a hypodermic needle to precisely place tiny threads of a biodegradable substance called polydioxanone beneath the skin. Where the threads are placed and what kind of threads are used will depend heavily on the results you are hoping to achieve. After the threads are placed, the body will stimulate collagen production and begin to repair itself around the thread. Though the thread itself will have broken down within six months, patients can expect to continue to see results for much longer.
Areas that can be treated by this procedure include:
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
