The PDO material provoke the surrounding tissue to produce a lot of collagen fiber around the thread. In so doing it helps to pull the skin thereby lifting the sagging parts.
The inserted thread serve as a scaffolding for the collagen and elastin fiber to be deposited in a predetermined fashion and arrangement.
This is as much like a mini lunchtime lift without a surgery. The recovery is fact and there is no downtime. The PDO material has been used by the medical community for more than 40 years and is found to be very safe. The synthetic PDO material is used as suture which is absorbable. It can be used to lift not only the face but almost any body parts such as the arm, tummy, thigh, leg, calf, buttock and neck.
The PDO effects can last up to 18 to 24 months. The material itself disappear in 60 to 90 days only. The effect last longer than the thread is due to stimulation of collagen production which perform the function of lifting.
These threads last longer than Dermal Fillers and wrinkle-relaxing treatments, and are seen as a valuable addition to the non-surgical facial and body rejuvenation treatments we offer here at the clinic.
The PDO technique is no more invasive than an injection. To ‘lift’ the jowls for example – a needle is inserted with thread in place, the needle is then removed leaving the thread to support and lift the tissue.
The PDO threads come in various shapes and sizes and your doctor will determine the appropriate number and type for each individual case at your consultation.
