PDO Threads can be used as a minimally invasive non-surgical alternative to facelifts that helps reverse the visible signs of aging and sagging on the face and neck. PDO stands for polydioxanone, which is a common chemical compound that has been used in surgical settings, specifically the suturing of incisions, for years. PDO threads can last 12- 36 months. They dissolve and stimulate collagen production.

The PDO Thread is a noninvasive alternative to surgery. This technique lifts, tucks, and contours facial skin to make it look younger. PDO threads are excellent for lifting sagging skin around the jowls and defining the jawline.
Full absorption of PDO fibers into the body occurs within six months. Several years of healthy skin will follow this treatment.
PDO threads can be either smooth or braided. Non-barbed threads are available in smooth or barbed forms. The most common method of reducing friction is to use non-barbed thread wrinkles and lines on the face. There is a greater thickness to the barbed threads. Under the skin, barbs hook into the tissue, unlike non-barbed threads. Sagging tissues are supported by umbrella-like threads that are inserted beneath the skin.
