ABOUT PDO Threads
In the aesthetic industry terms like selective inflammatory response is the core behind a lot of procedures (such as Lasers, Chemical Peels & Microneedling). Our bodies and skin is actually very good at repairing itself, and by inserting PDO threads we make it ‘heal’ itself by creating new collagen with the inflammatory response, but also giving you amazing instant results.
Your body will gently react to the response of the threads that have been inserted into the treatment area. PDO is over time fully absorbable, during the 4 to 6 months needed to fully absorb the actual thread. Your body is also repairing itself around the thread. It’s controlled healing due to the inflammatory response happening underneath the treatment area.
What are PDO Threads made of?
Threads are a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone. PDO sutures are used to perform cardiothoracic surgery (such as open-heart surgery and post child birth). It’s actually one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body.
Your body will fully absorb the thread within 4 to 6 months, in time this stimulates your bodies own response to collagen.
PDO Thread Placement Areas
Although threads can be inserted almost anywhere, one area where they are especially effective is the neck and jawline. They can also be used effectively with Botox, Xeomin, dermal fillers and laser treatments etc.
