PDO Threads

As we age, it’s common to experience a loss of firmness in the skin. Collagen, the protein that is responsible for elasticity, declines by 80% over time. However, PDO threads are a non-invasive, collagen stimulating answer that promote a youthful, radiant look and provide a natural-looking lift. Let’s discuss silk PDO threads and how they can help you.

What Are PDO Threads?

PDO threads are a type of thread commonly used in cosmetic procedures to lift and tighten sagging skin. These threads are made of polydioxanone, a biocompatible material that also has several surgical applications.

When inserted under the skin, PDO threads stimulate collagen production, helping to improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The procedure is relatively quick and minimally invasive, with little downtime required for recovery.

What is a PDO Thread Lift?

A PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive treatment option to provide lift to the face and other areas of the body. This innovative technique is suitable if you’re looking to address skin laxity and achieve a more youthful appearance without undergoing traditional facelift surgery.

The threads used in a PDO thread lift stimulate collagen production, helping to tighten the skin and reduce the signs of aging with immediate and long-term effects. During the procedure, your EstrogenicA provider inserts PDO threads into the treatment area using a needle or cannula.

PDO threads are inserted beneath the skin using small incisions. The threads act as a scaffolding structure, supporting the tissues and promoting a natural rejuvenation process.

By boosting collagen levels, these threads help to restore volume to your skin and enhance the overall appearance of the face and neck. The threads also help to support the tissues and lift the skin, resulting in a more contoured and rejuvenated appearance.

Benefits of Silk PDO Threads

Silk PDO threads are a specific type of PDO thread known for their smooth texture and natural lift. One of the primary benefits of using Silk PDO threads is their ability to provide a subtle yet noticeable lift to the treated areas. Whether used for facial rejuvenation or neck tightening, these threads offer a natural-looking result that enhances the overall appearance without the need for extensive downtime. The smooth texture of these threads allows for comfortable insertion and secure anchoring beneath the skin.

Benefits of the Thread Lift Procedure

One of the main benefits of thread lifts is their ability to target specific areas of the face and neck that may be experiencing sagging or loss of definition. Whether used to lift the eyebrows, cheeks, jawline, or neck, thread lifts can create a more harmonious and youthful appearance by repositioning the underlying tissues.

Additionally, thread lifts help to improve skin texture and restore volume with immediately noticeable results. The results of a thread lift are noticeable right away, with marked improvements over time as collagen production is stimulated.

The biodegradable nature of the threads ensures that they are gradually absorbed by the body, leaving behind a network of natural collagen fibers that support the skin's structure. With proper skin care and maintenance, the benefits of a thread lift can last for several months to over a year, making it a popular choice for individuals seeking natural-looking rejuvenation.

Target Treatment Areas

Silk PDO threads can be used to treat:

  • The eye and eyebrow area
  • Cheeks and jawline
  • Neck
  • Crow’s feet
  • Marionette lines
  • Sagging in other areas of the body, like the arms, legs, abdomen, and buttocks

Your EstrogenicA provider will strategically place the threads in your target areas, treating your unique needs. The versatility of PDO threads allows for customized treatment plans that cater to your unique concerns and aesthetic goals.

When considering target treatment areas for PDO threads, your EstrogenicA provider will assess your skin condition and recommend the most suitable approach.
