PDO (polydioxanone) threads are a type of suture material that has been used in various surgical procedures for many years.
In recent years, they have gained popularity in the field of medical aesthetics for non-surgical facial rejuvenation. PDO threads are typically inserted into the skin to lift and tighten sagging or loose tissues. The threads are inserted using a fine needle or cannula, and they stimulate collagen production, which helps to improve the texture and elasticity of the skin.
The threads can also be used to create a lifting effect in areas such as the cheeks, jowls, jawline, and neck. The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia, and the recovery time is relatively short compared to surgical facelift procedures.
Common side effects may include temporary redness, swelling, bruising, or mild discomfort, but these typically resolve within a few days to weeks.
If you're interested in undergoing a PDO thread treatment or any other aesthetic procedure, I recommend consulting with a qualified and experienced medical professional in your area. I have been doing PDO threads with great results for the past 5 years and I am certified by the American Academy of Procedural Medicine.
