PDO Threads are a revolutionary aesthetic treatment that involves the use of polydioxanone (PDO) threads to lift and tighten the skin. This non-surgical treatment is designed to provide a subtle yet noticeable improvement in skin tone and texture, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of ageing.
PDO Threads work by stimulating collagen production in the skin, helping to improve skin elasticity and firmness. The threads are inserted under the skin using a small needle, and the lifting effect is immediately visible. Over time, the threads dissolve, leaving behind a matrix of collagen and elastin that supports the skin’s natural structure.
PDO Thread lifts are a safe and effective treatment option for individuals who are looking to achieve a more youthful, radiant appearance without undergoing invasive surgical procedures. The treatment is typically done in a series of sessions, with each session lasting approximately 30-60 minutes.
PDO Threading is a minimally invasive treatment that is suitable for individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity. It can be used to lift and tighten the skin on the face, neck, and other areas of the body.
