The PDO threading procedure involves using various lengths of thin acupuncture sterile needles to embed PDO dissolving threads deep underneath the surface of the skin. These wires are placed strategically into the dermis, where it acts as a frame for lifting and tightening loose and sagging skin. The material from which these threads are made, Polydioxanone, is a safe substance that keeps the skin in its new tightened state for 4-6 months, whilst also synthesising new collagen production. The lasting result will provide the skin with a fresh, well-rested, and firmer look and supporting new collagen formation for long-lasting results.
This treatment can be done on the face, but also in various areas of the body where the main objective is creating a lift, rather than restoring volume.
The various thread lengths give the Skin Renewal doctor a wide range of treatment options. The threads dissolve naturally over months while synthesising new collagen production in the treated area.
This treatment allows the skin of the face or body to present smoother and firmer. The PDO threading treatment is well tolerated by patients as only local anaesthetic is required. Upon consultation, the doctor will analyse the area and recommend the right number and type of threads necessary to get the desired results.
The following types of PDO threads are available:
1. SUSPENSION SUTURES - Lifting, tightening & re-draping
2. BARBED THREADS & ANCHOR THREADS - lifting and tightening
3. MONOFILAMENTS - strengthening & improving general skin condition
4. SPECIALTY THREADS - area & function-specific threads
