Discover the Secret to the Ever-Young Appearance: PDO Threads
- Posted on: May 17 2022
The secret to the ever-young appearance is something that almost everyone desires, and it’s hard to find the real thing. PDO Threads are used by many people to look younger, but what exactly does it mean? Well, you’re in luck because this blog will give you all the information you need about PDO Threads, from what they are, what they do, and why people choose them.
What are Polydioxanone (PDO) threads?
PDO thread lifts use a biodegradable polyester suture. They’re best suited for the treatment of rejuvenating the skin while other thread lifts are better at dealing with sagging skin.
One of the early signs of aging is that your face will seem longer and droopier. This is a likely cause of wrinkles around your mouth, or around your cheeks, for example. You’ll have lots of wrinkles and folds, chubby jowls, saggy cheeks, a loosening of the skin, and other age-related signs.
What does it do?
Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are very special medical-grade threads. Made of protein, they are thinner than hair. Studies have found that PDO relaxes tendons and muscles while eliciting a foreign body reaction that helps with blood flow to the area and, therefore, stimulates the production of new collagen in the skin.
One of the skin-friendly benefits of peptides is that they promote blood circulation and the production of collagen to smooth out scars, reduce inflammation, remove wrinkles, and remove tightness in the skin. Studies show that 90% of users are happier with the way they look when they use PDO threads.
The procedure is very simple and can take anywhere from 1 – to 2 hours, depending on how many areas are being treated.
Why do people choose it over other options?
PDO threads are one of three types of sutures that are commonly used in thread lifts. The other two types are PLA and PCA.
Due to their similarity to human skin, PDO threads provide less chance of causing allergic reactions or irritating the wearer than PCA or PLA threads. Furthermore, they are less prone to breakage under stress than PCA or PLA threads.
PDO threads last longer than PLA or PCA, meaning you won’t need a facelift as often.
Are there any side effects?
PDO threads reduce risks like scarring, severe bruising, and bleeding when performed by a trained professional.
In addition, unlike a facelift procedure, there is no downtime following a PDO thread. You can take care of business as usual, just like when they’re removed. You can receive treatment in around 30 minutes which means you’ll be back at work as soon as it’s done.
Who can benefit from PDO?
The use of PDO threads has been shown to stimulate the production of new collagen in your skin. This increase reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and gives your skin and healthy, more youthful appearance. A common misconception is that PDO threads are only used for facelifts. In fact, they can be used on any part of your body where you have loose or sagging skin – such as around your neck or arms. They can also be used to remove excess fat deposits from problem areas like thighs and buttocks.
