PDO threads can be likened to dermal fillers. However, as opposed to a filler being left in the skin to improve its appearance, ultra-fine threads are placed. These PDO (Polydioxanone) threads work as a lifting procedure and break down organically over a period of 6-8 months and the body will produce strands of collagen around the threads that will keep the treated area in position even after the threads dissolve. The full results of treatment last for up to 18 months, making it a longer-term option than dermal fillers.
PDO threads have a lifting effect, but also induce a rejuvenating effect in the skin: improved circulation and faster cell turnover occur as a result of treatment.
