PDO Fine Thread Contouring -
Polydioxanone (PDO) threads have been used for wound closure worldwide for more than 15 years. This type of thread is safe and has less discomfort and downtime associated with its less invasive insertion technique.
PDO threads can be as fine as a hair strand and are fully biodegradable, therefore dissolving over a 6 month period. Collagen fibres form around the threads and remain in place once the threads have dissolved.
Different lengths and thicknesses of threads are used depending on the desired result, skin condition and the amount of ‘lift’ required. Deeper threads can be inserted to lift the brows and to anchor and lift the jaw line, marionettes and jowel area. Superficial threads are used to lift out and reduce fine lines, stimulate skin tightening, and provide facial contouring. Discomfort and tightness following insertion is moderate, lasting 3-
