If you haven’t heard of a polydioxanone thread lift (PDO), it is a procedure developed and made popular in Korea, to reduce the effects of aging on the skin. At Allure Medspa, our specialists have been well-trained in the administration of this technique and can explain to you exactly how it works as well as the benefits it achieves for a patient.
How PDO thread lifts work
PDO thread lifts are treatments which include the introduction of absorbable PDO threads under the outer layer of skin, and these threads then trigger the production of various proteins, including collagen. Collagen increases the elasticity of your skin and helps to keep it moister and firmer. Once these PDO threads have been introduced under the skin, they can continue to stimulate collagen production for as long as 18 months!
How PDO thread lifts can be used
The four major areas of the body where PDO thread lifts are most commonly used include the forehead and eyes, the neck, the cheeks, and the area around the mouth and jowls. Results are usually seen very quickly, as these areas recover a more youthful, elastic look, and firmer skin tone.
If you are seeking improvement in any of the following areas, PDO thread lifts may be the appropriate treatment for you:
- Sagging neck
- Horizontal and vertical forehead wrinkles
