PDO threads are known within the beauty industry as the non-surgical facelift. for anyone who feels their skin is tiring, starting to drop slightly around the Jowell areas or the neck, looks a little bit lifeless in general and feel like your skin has seen better days- PDO threads is without question the perfect treatment for you.
PDO threads are cosmetically used to help encourage collagen and elastin growth that may have been lost with age. The superfine threads that are placed under the surface of the skin help to enhance the contours of the face by improving loosened skin. the treatment can also be carried out on the legs, arms, bum, back, stomach, neck, décolletage as well as of course the cheeks and the face.
On the face, we find that the most common areas for PDO threads to be performed are around the mouth, nasolabial folds, the jaw line, the cheeks and of course eyebrow lifting.
PDO Threading is an effective and safe technique that involves the placement of threads under the surface of the skin. the threads are made of Polydioxanone which is a perfectly safe cosmetic and medical product which dissolves after time.
the great thing about these threads is that they can also be used alongside dermal fillers, Botox and varying other cosmetic treatments.
Once your PDO thread treatment is completed you can expect to see instant results and a lift to the area treated, but also the treatment will continue to work for several months after.
Of course, the idea of having any foreign product injected into the skin is daunting, however the product that makes up these threads has been used for decades for various different medical treatments. these include heart surgery and gynaecological disorders due to the increase in cell cohesion from the polydioxanone- Hence why this product is so good for the stimulation of collagen, improving skin texture, accelerating rejuvenation, tightening, and lifting!
Are there different types of pdo threads that I can have?
Yes, there are two main kinds of PDO threads.
1)Barbed PDO threads
2)Non barbed PDO threads
Barbed PDO threads tend to be a lot more robust, stronger, and firmer with a more intense lifting ability within the skin. Once applied under the surface of the skin, they are efficient at creating a strong pull and lift.
With non-barbed PDO threads, the thread itself tends to be far finer with a far more subtle lifting capacity. these tend to be used more often in cosmetics to tighten the skin gently, rejuvenate and improve skin quality. It is worth noting that these are much cheaper to buy than the barbed PDO threads. They tend to be more versatile because they don’t necessarily give a lift, and of course you wouldn’t necessarily need a lift in every area of the body that you desire to treat.
