PDO Threads subtly lift the facial features to reduce fine lines and wrinkles while encouraging collagen production for more volume in the treated areas. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening to the face. PDO Threads are often the non surgical alternative to a face lift.
PDO stands for polydioxanone, an absorbable polymer that is flexible and durable for minimally invasive thread lifts. During the procedure, a the PDO Thread is attached to a cannula, then the cannula is inserted and threaded through the skin. The entire procedure lasts about 15-20 minutes, and there is zero downtime.
