PDO is a shortened name for Polydioxanone; is a synthetic absorbable monofilament thread which is commonly used in cardiovascular and fine ligatures. It is ultra-thin, dissolves in up to 8 months yielding rejuvenation results. The application of the thread is practically non-invasive and painless.
The procedures take up to 50 minutes and leave no scarring or cuts and any minor redness normally disappears within a few days. PDO threads can be applied nearly anywhere on the body.
This procedure creates an alternative for patients who do not want to go down the surgical route but want the effects of a surgical face-lift.
Threads are used to regenerate the skin improving the structure of the face, neck, décolletage, breasts, buttocks, abdomen, knees and elbows. The procedure creates a natural and youthful appearance and protects against wrinkles for a period of time. The threads dissolve themselves but the benefits can be seen for 12-18 months.
The procedure is suitable for patients 25 years and older when ageing effects start to become apparent.
Ageing causes the skin to sag because collagen and elastin fibres breakdown. PDO threads help to reverse this process.
The threads do not pull artificially, the lifting produces collagen itself and then improves the blood circulation for elastic and eliminates wrinkles naturally.
Flabby skin worsens the appearance of wrinkles. Lifting and contouring of the body and face along with a much more youthful complexion can be achieved by collagen that resides at a deeper layer of the skin.
Today men and women prefer less invasive treatments with shorter downtimes and less self-care.
Please note that all results vary and we endeavour to manage patient expectations. The lift has a subtle result.
