What are PDO Body Threads?
PDO thread stands for polydioxanone thread, a synthetic absorbable surgical suture, proven to be one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body. PDO threads are used to temporarily enhance the appearance of the area treated.
PDO threads can very effectively:
PDO threads help redefine facial and body contours and induce collagen production. Stimulation reaches full effect about 3 months after treatment once collagen has naturally formed around the thread. A recent study by The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery showed that the thread is safely absorbed within 4-6 months, by month 7, the collagen present in the threaded area increases by 100%. Results may last between 12 to 18 months.
Local anesthetic is used to numb the area. The Treatment is pain free and takes 30 to 60 min depending on the area. Great results can also be achieved by combining PDO threads with Laser TightSculpting or Morpheus8 Body treatment.
There is an immediately noticeable improvement after the PDO treatments, with a visible lift and/or textural improvement. Results continue to improve over 3 months or so as new collagen forms around and between threads, proving further lifting and tightening.
Any area of the body could be treated. The most common areas are abdomen, thigh, knee, butt and breast.
