Polydioxanone (PDO) is a non-surgical “facelift” that tightens up sagging skin for longer periods of time than its filler competitors. Made from medical-grade thread that’s thinner than hair and created with FDA-approved protein material, PDO threads are injected into the skin during a non-invasive procedure.
What Do PDO Threads Do?
PDO threads work with your body’s natural collagen production processes to stimulate neocollagenesis to help plump and firm your skin.
At Ultimate Image, we offer PDO thread treatment from Medyglobal America. They craft their contaminant-resistant threads in small batches, so you’ll know that you’re getting fresh material in your treatment. Additionally, their use of 3D technology allows each thread to be nearly twice as strong as its leading competitor.
Medyglobal’s 3D process utilizes 360-degree helical barbs, which means that your PDO threads will attach to your tissues without any manual twisting or uncomfortable movement.
After 12 weeks, the biodegradable threads completely dissolve, leaving behind the collagen it helped produce. Afterward, the body will continue to produce collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid on its own to continue smoothing your skin.
How Do PDO Threads Change Your Appearance?
When injected with a small needle, Medyglobal’s PDO threads affix themselves to the targeted tissue, whether it be sagging facial tissue or loose areas on the chest or neck.
Once applied, the PDO works on two different fronts simultaneously. First, PDO relaxes the muscles and tendons in the treated area (most often on the face, neck, or chest). Secondly, it causes a reaction in the body that stimulates blood flow to the area, enabling the production of new collagen.
This regeneration of your skin’s collagen pushes back against fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging. PDO also stimulates elastin and hyaluronic acid, natural substances in the body that promote firm and smooth skin.
Where Do PDO Threads Work Best?
PDO can be used in multiple areas of the face, neck, and chest. Particularly, PDO is often used to treat sagging brows, forehead wrinkles, nasolabial folds, thinning cheeks, sagging jawline, and marionette lines.
What To Expect from PDO Results
While you will see immediate change, with the actual protein synthesis beginning after about two weeks, the best results are found after about six months. They can last for up to two years!
