What Are PDO Threads?

PDO threads (Polydioxanone threads) are one of the most sought-after solutions for facial sagging and have proven to be a highly effective facial rejuvenation treatment.

PDO threads represent an innovative, non-surgical technique for facial rejuvenation that is increasingly popular in the field of aesthetic medicine.

These “lifting threads,” as they are commonly called, are made from biocompatible and absorbable materials, making them safe for the body.

Once inserted into the skin, they can stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, fibroblasts, and hyaluronic acid, promoting skin firmness and elasticity.

This procedure has become widely popular due to its natural and long-lasting results.


Where Are PDO Threads Applied and How Do They Work?

This facial rejuvenation treatment involves the insertion of threads into the superficial subcutaneous tissue or hypodermis under local anesthesia. This technique enhances the definition and firmness of the face in specific areas, including the eyebrows, facial contour, neck, and other regions of the face, aiming to improve skin quality and remodel these areas.

The procedure is performed at Living Clinic, where the doctor (dermatologist) inserts the threads one by one into the superficial subcutaneous layer of the skin.

It is a minimally invasive procedure and therefore relatively simple and quick, allowing most patients to resume their daily activities shortly after treatment, with appropriate care.


When Do Results Appear?

Immediately after the application you can notice a difference in the repositioning of tissues. However, it’s important to note that the stimulation in the dermis occurs progressively over the 30 days following the treatment. During this period, the threads will stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, gradually promoting firmer and more rejuvenated skin. The results become more noticeable about 60 to 90 days after the procedure.


How Long Do PDO Threads Last?

Clinical studies indicate that the effects of PDO Threads can last, on average, 12 months. During this period, the threads are gradually absorbed by the body, but the collagen stimulation effects can persist longer.

It’s important to emphasize that the longevity of the results can vary from person to person, depending on various factors including skin type, age, and lifestyle.

To maintain the results longer, you should follow the doctor’s recommendations for post-treatment care and have some maintenance sessions over time.


What Are the Benefits of PDO Lifting Threads?

The benefits of PDO lifting threads are extensive. Besides providing an immediate lifting effect, they smooth wrinkles and fine lines, improve skin texture, and define the facial contour.

One of the major advantages of this treatment compared to more invasive rejuvenation treatments is the quick recovery after the procedure, allowing patients to resume their daily activities almost immediately.

The results are natural and instantly provide a more youthful appearance.

While PDO threads offer numerous remarkable benefits, it is important to be aware of some potential downsides and complications associated with this procedure. In rare cases, complications can occur, such as infection, allergic reaction, or thread displacement.

Before the treatment, a local anesthetic is applied, so the procedure is generally well-tolerated. However, pain tolerance varies significantly from person to person and depending on the treated area.

After the procedure, it is normal to experience some discomfort, swelling, or sensitivity in the treated area, which is usually mild and temporary.

It’s important to note that not all patients are ideal candidates for PDO lifting threads, and there are some contraindications to consider. These include pregnancy, breastfeeding, inflammation in the treatment area, or certain medical conditions. Before starting the treatment, you should discuss your medical history with the doctor at Living Clinic.
