Can PDO Threads Rejuvenate Your Skin?
We live in an age where there are plenty of different medical and cosmetic procedures to help you achieve the goals you are hoping for when it comes to your skin. From injectables to laser procedures, there is something for everyone out there. One of the newest things to pop up is the PDO Thread Lift procedure, which can work wonders for rejuvenating your skin and helping you look and feel younger! Thanks to the advancements in medical procedures that have been made, this is one of the many ways that you can help your skin look and feel the best.
What are PDO Threads?
PDO Threads, or polydioxanone threads, are a great alternative to plastic surgery. Like plastic surgery, they can change the way you look and give you a more youthful appearance. However, unlike plastic surgery, PDO Threads do not require a ton of downtime and are often done as an outpatient procedure, which makes them a great choice for those who are looking to get results without all of the side effects and recovery times.
These threads have been used for many years, although not for cosmetic reasons, until only very recently. While they were typically only used during surgeries as sutures, thanks to their ability to be dissolved safely, they are now serving a new purpose: helping to rejuvenate skin and give plastic surgery-like results without the actual surgery.
How do PDO Threads Work to Rejuvenate Skin?
PDO threads can be placed in several areas of the body, although they are typically used in the facial area to mimic the results of a facelift procedure. The first step is to apply a numbing anesthetic to prepare the skin for the insertion of the threads. After the anesthetic takes effect, a small cannula is used to place the threads into the desired areas. Since these PDO threads have small barbs, they can attach themselves to the tissue under the skin, and then they are pulled to give a “lifted” appearance.
PDO Threads can help to rejuvenate skin because the placement of the threads helps the skin to produce more collagen, which is a protein that makes the skin appear smooth, tight, and supple. Because of this, a younger appearance can be expected with the use of PDO threads.
