  • Some people spend a fortune trying to keep the effects of aging at bay. Unfortunately, aging is a fact of life. There is no harm in having a few wrinkles. In fact, they can add character to your face and make you more endearing.

    However, if you are like most people, you may prefer to keep them in check. Reversing the appearance of wrinkles is not as difficult as it sounds. It could simply require a few lifestyle changes. Sometimes, though, wrinkles might require medical or surgical intervention to slow down or reduce their appearance.


    What Are PDO Threads?


    These are medical-grade types of sutures commonly used in facelifts. Is your face loosening? Do you have sagging skin and looking for a fresher, tighter, and more youthful look? A PDO thread lift may be the perfect solution for you. Polydioxanone or PDO threads are made of protein and are thinner than a strand of hair.

    According to medical research, they relax muscles and tendons. The immune system’s response to a foreign body improves blood flow to the area, which stimulates the production of new collagen in your skin. It also stimulates hyaluronic acid and elastin, both essential to maintaining youthful and firm skin.

    PDO Smoothing Threads to Tighten and Lift Skin


    Did you know that PDO smoothing threads can lift and tighten sagging skin without leaving scars? This surely explains the revolutionary cosmetic procedure’s popularity. Additionally, it is quite effective when it comes to instantly lifting areas of your neck, face, and body. They smooth your skin to give you a youthful and sculpted appearance.


    What Makes PDO Lifting Threads Different?


    PDO threads are one of the three most common types of suture threads used in lift procedures. Since the 1980s, cosmetic surgeons have been using this type of thread, which means that it has been around longer than the other two types. The two less common suture threads are made of polycaprolactone or polylactic acid.

    The presence of PDO threads in your skin triggers cells in your body to produce more collagen. This protein gives your skin its elasticity and structure. The gradual loss of this protein is one of the main causes of aging skin. PDO lifting threads come in three different categories, which are:

    • PDO screw threads made up of one or more intertwined threads used to help reduce sunken wrinkles and volumize your skin.

    • PDO cog threads with barbs that fasten into your skin to provide lift and support to certain parts of your face.

    • PDO mono threads, also known as PDO smoothing threads, rejuvenate your skin by boosting the production of collagen.

    Essentially, when it comes to PDO threads, there are two types of procedures. Some work to lift your skin, while others work to smooth it. In other words, the PDO thread lift treatment helps to lift, tighten, and smooth your skin tissue for a more youthful appearance.
