PDO threads represent a cutting-edge solution for skin tightening and rejuvenation. The acronym PDO stands for Polydioxanone, a biocompatible material frequently employed in medical sutures, ensuring safety and compatibility. These threads are crafted to invigorate collagen production, elevate sagging skin, and enhance the overall texture and firmness of the treated area.
When we talk about "spring threads," we're referring to PDO threads characterized by a coiled or helical structure. These threads boast small barbs or cogs along their length, serving to anchor them within the skin and deliver an effective lifting effect. The helical design of the threads amplifies their lifting capabilities, contributing to a more youthful appearance.
The advantages of PDO threads are manifold:
1. Ultra-fine threads naturally break down in the body over 6-8 months, with results gradually diminishing over approximately 18 months.
2. The transparent material seamlessly integrates into the skin, remaining virtually invisible.
3. Threads lack cones, ensuring no tissue damage during the procedure.
4. Proven safety record, with the same thread used in cardiac and other surgical sutures.
The PDO thread lifting technique goes beyond mere repositioning of the skin; it actively triggers the body's natural response to a 'foreign body,' prompting collagen production and enhancing blood circulation. This process results in tissue contraction, providing a holistic approach to achieving a revitalized and lifted appearance.
