Aging and sagging skin is due to collagen loss as we age. The older we get, the less collagen our bodies naturally produce. PDO Threads or polydioxanone threads are used as a safe and non-invasive way to treat collagen loss as an alternative to, or in conjunction with, fillers and injectables. Polydioxanone is slowly absorbed into the body over many months and has been safely used in surgical sutures for years.
The threads are embedded just beneath the skin and simulate a microtrauma. This encourages the body to create collagen as this is a natural part of the healing process. The production of collagen creates a plumping and firming effect which in turn reduces lines and wrinkles. You will experience minimal downtime and results can be seen immediately and will continue to become apparent over time. While not permanent, results can last for up to two years.
