Sometimes people are too young to consider surgery or simply do not want surgery. Facial volume may be needed but excessive volume is not desirable and lift is preferable. Non-permanent threads such as PDO thread have been gaining popularity over the years because of its powerful lifting effects against sagging. They are fully absorbable and requires no incision or stitches, meaning minimal downtime after the procedure.
PDO ThreadsPolydioxanone (PDO) is a material often used for stitching in surgeries. As a colorless biodegradable synthetic polymer, the threads will be dissolved within a year, but help to stimulate the production of new collagen in your skin which the effects can last until well after the threads have gone.
PDO operates in the cell as mechanical external stimulus, and provides the following effects within the skin:
- Production of collagen
- Skin tightening and lifting effect
- Improvement of microcirculation
- Increase of cell metabolism
- Relaxation of muscles
- Increase of lipolysis (fat tissue breakdown)
