What are PDO Threads for the Body?
Polydioxanone (PDO) Threads were first developed as suture material for open-heart surgery. Used cosmetically, PDO Threads can help hold loose skin in place. Underlying collagen is recreated in a healing response to placing the threads, acting as a scaffolding to delicately lift the tissues and reposition the skin. Threads are reabsorbed by your body in 4 to 6 months, leaving only the new skin structure, which holds indefinitely.
What Parts of My Body Can Benefit from PDO Thread Lift?
The obvious use for PDO Threads is in the face: The “lunch-hour lift” that includes reducing folds, lines, and sags in the face, jawline, and neck. If you have sagging or loose skin after losing weight or simply as you age, any part of your body can benefit from a PDO Thread Lift. For instance, it will tighten skin near your knees, or counteract the effects of gravity on your breasts.
