PDO threads for the face – what is it?
PDO threads are a great alternative to a surgical facelift. All thanks to strong, synthetic fibers made of polydioxanone, creating a uniform structure. The substance from which they were made penetrates into the skin a few months after being introduced into the skin and then dissolves completely in the tissue. During the gradual dissolution, PDO threads stimulate the synthesis of collagen and fibroblasts. In this way, they stimulate skin cells to renew.
Polydioxanone (PDO) is a material that has been used in medicine for many years. However, previously it was used mainly in plastic surgery, urology and gynecology. This ingredient stimulates the production of collagen, a protein responsible for skin tightness and firmness. The treatment with the use of a thread for the face consists in introducing the material with a thin needle into specific areas of the face skin. The applied thread stimulates the stimulation of processes improving skin firmness, tension and elasticity. The product has all the necessary approvals and is approved for medical use throughout the European Union.

Each treatment should be preceded by a medical consultation with a detailed discussion of the entire process. The speed of the procedure depends on how many PDO threads are applied to the patient’s face. However, the treatment itself consists in inserting the thread into specific areas of the skin with a thin needle, making single pricks. The comfort and sensations are similar to those in the microneedling procedure. Usually, the area of the face where PDO threads are implanted is pre-locally anesthetized. Immediately after the treatment, the skin may be slightly red, small hematomas or bruises may also appear. They usually disappear within a few days. The first effects are visible immediately, but for the proper results, which usually last up to a year, you should wait about two weeks.

The effects of the treatment with PDO threads
The effect of the thread implantation into the skin of the face is noticeable and almost immediate. Immediately after the process of applying the material is completed, the soft tissues of the face are clearly pulled up. The implanted threads create a kind of scaffolding for the face, improving its oval, thickening and firming the skin structure. They spur the production of new collagen in tissues, and the stimulation of fibroblasts energizes the synthesis of elastin responsible for springiness and elasticity. In addition, they affect the supply of essential amino acids, lift soft tissues, soften facial features and regulate skin tension on the cheeks. The improvement of the condition of the face is the result of a several-week process of adapting the material. However, the final results can be observed after a few weeks, when the flabby tissues are completely changed as a result of the synthesis of new skin proteins. The effect lasts for about a year.
Lifting threads for the face are an ultra-modern and minimally invasive method of both eliminating signs of aging and modeling the shape of the face. The final price of the treatment with the use of PDO threads is agreed after consultation with the doctor.
