Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are absorbable filler threads inserted underneath the skin to provide lifting and smoothing of targeted skin areas. As the threads dissolve, your own body replaces the area with new collagen and elastin for younger looking skin.
The barbed threads have small barbs attached to create a lifting effect and can be placed in the cheeks or neck. These threads pull up the skin for a natural looking lift and smoothing out of wrinkles and fine lines. Various threads are placed in a triangular shape depending on the client’s facial anatomy and goals.
The smooth threads come in various sizes and are used for smaller areas where the patient wants to increase volume and reduce or prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Smooth threads encourage neocollagenesis and elastin in the dermal layer of the skin. Smooth threads create a natural filler effect with less risk of migration to other areas of the face.
