Do PDO Threads Build Collagen?

PDO threads are one of the most popular non-surgical options we offer here at Ultimate Image Cosmetic Medical Center in Tampa Bay. PDO threads can be used all over the face to tighten, lift, and firm. In this post, we’ll review what PDO threads are, what they do, and their benefits.

What are PDO Threads?

PDO threads are extremely thin filaments made of polydioxanone, a biodegradable substance that is inserted just under the skin with a tiny cannula. The threads are strategically placed by a trained professional in our office to give the most appealing profile. Once inserted, the PDO thread immediately lifts and tightens the treatment area. The PDO threads continue to work for up to two years, giving the client plump, radiant skin. Some people even compare the results of PDO threads to an actual surgical facelift!

Benefits of PDO Threads

PDO threads are the treatment that keeps on giving great results for years. Clients will see almost immediate lift results after the PDO threads are inserted after a short recovery period. The threads dissolve in about six months, but they don’t stop working then! As they dissolve, messages are sent for multiple substances to be produced and sent to the thread site, including:

  • Collagen
  • Elastin
  • Cytokines
  • Growth factors

These substances work to rejuvenate the area and provide firmer, more youthful-looking skin from the inside out.

PDO Threads are a Collagen Powerhouse

There’s a reason everyone keeps talking about collagen when it comes to skincare. Collagen is an essential building block for healthy skin, but most topical collagen products just don’t penetrate deep enough to do a good job. PDO threads work on the skin’s foundation, rebuilding lost collagen and other factors, so you can put your best face forward.
