Polydioxanone (PDO) is a safe biodegradable, crystalline, colorless synthetic polymer that has been utilized to make absorbable suture materials for many years. PDO threads are widely used in aesthetic medicine to delicately reposition the skin and stimulate new collagen (neocollagenesis). Your body recognizes the thread as foreign and increases collagen production, which results in the improvement of your skin condition. PDO threads are inserted into the skin, and within a few months they are completely absorbed, but your new collagen and beautifully reshaped appearance lasts for up to 12 months. There are lifting threads, smooth threads, and twist threads. We would love to see you come in for a complementary consultation so one of our medical providers can discuss what type of threads would be best for your aesthetic goals!
