There is nowhere on the body where we can see the signs of aging more prominently than the face. Face, neck, and chest skin are all thin and wrinkled as we get older, giving the look and feel of crepe paper. Wondering how to fix your paper-like skin? Check out PDO threads!
What are PDO threads?
PDO (polydioxanone) threads are very thin strands of protein polymer. PDO threads are FDA-approved for direct injection into the treatment area…in this case, anywhere on the body where loose, saggy, crepey skin can be found.
How do PDO threads work?
PDO threads work by relaxing muscles and tendons while also stimulating collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid synthesis. PDO threads stick to the tissue where plumping and firming is desired. They stimulate extra blood flow to the area which aids in bringing vital nutrients to repair the perceived wound. Over a 12-week period, the PDO threads break down completely and are replaced with fresh collagen, elastin, and HA.
How long do PDO threads last?
You will see immediate results with PDO threads that improve as the threads break down. After the full breakdown at 12 weeks, the results stick around for 1-3 years!
Are there any side effects?
Just like any medical or cosmetic procedure, there may be side effects. The most common side effects experienced after treatment with PDO threads include redness, tenderness, and discomfort at the injection site, swelling of the treatment area, and localized pain. Some patients may experience issues with the anesthesia they are given, visible or extruded thread barbs, or a reaction to the threads themselves.
