The PDO Threadlift is a minimally invasive procedure that can lift sagging cheeks, jowls, and restores volume. This is quite often called the “non-surgical facelift.”
PDO sutures are popular in the Europe and Asia and are now just making their way to the US. The material is completely safe and breaks down in your body. The results are long lasting, over 12-15 months.
There are two ways to insert threads :
PDO threads can form a mesh beneath the skin which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Your physician can implant a series of barbed threads in straight lines. This arrangement promotes a more drastic uplifting of the facial structure, especially the chin, cheeks and jowls
Collagen is produced along the length of the threads, achieving the same effect as fillers but using your body’s natural healing ability.
