PDO Thread Treatment
PDO (Polydioxonone) Threads are an effective cosmetic technique that lifts and tightens sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production. This lifting method involves the implantation of multiple, fine Polydioxanone (PDO) threads, into the subcutaneous layer of the skin which creates a vectorial network that acts as support for the tissue. PDO Threads have been widely used in the medical field for over a decade.
Once implanted into the skin, the threads produce an immediate, visible lifting effect while also supporting natural collagen production. After the short (30-90 minute) procedure, your skin will feel rejuvenated, bringing vitality, elasticity and a brighter complexion. The lifting effect is at its peak after six months via biological (enzymatic) absorption or hydrolysis, from there the threads will be absorbed into the body leaving new collagen in their place.
The threads are placed in or just under the skin and stimulate the production of your own collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. They also stimulate the development of new blood vessels and improve lymphatic drainage giving a better skin quality with a smoother brighter appearance. The results start immediately and will continue to improve for 6-8 months, ultimately lasting up to 18 months - this is based on the patients age and lifestyle.
The Collagen produced will provide tension and firmness which will help tighten and lift the skin tissue. Elastin will give the skin elasticity associated with youthful skin and the Hyaluronic Acid binds water giving an enhanced hydration. This combination of effects gives an amazing rejuvenation to ageing skin and helps to reverse and slow the ageing process in skin.
Local anaesthetic is used making the procedure pain free!
