The PDO thread is inserted into the skin through a very fine needle or cannula causing an artificial wound, inducing a healing effect improving the skin. Creating upper and lower contraction between skin and muscle, or skeletons, the thread causes a lifting effect. When located in solid tissue, near bones or ligament, the fixed tissue has stronger adhesion effect to the skin.
Different lengths and thicknesses of thread are used for different areas of the face and body. Short strands of threads are often used to treat fine lines around the eyes, while thicker strands can be injected into the muscles of the forehead as an alternative to Botox. For more information about which threads will be most suitable for the procedures you undertake, please get in touch.
As the threads provide support to lift skin in its new position, your skin is immediately lifted after a PDO thread lifting procedure. Initially, you may look unnaturally tighter, slightly, but typically within 1 week, the skin will relax, giving you a more natural look. You will notice improved skin texture, firmer, and smoother skin because the rejuvenating effects of the skin take effect within 1-2 months. During the procedure, the doctor may focus on the skin rejuvenation, or skin lifting depending on the desired results and which technique is ultimately used. However, end results will vary from the individual person. The effects continue even after the threats have completely dissolved about 9 months following the procedure.
