WHAT ARE PDO THREADS?

They are micro cannulas preloaded with an absorbable PDO suture.
  • Natural results
  • No surgery, No pain
  • Lunchtime procedure
  • Uncontested for neck & jawline, but not limited to these areas
  • A synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone
  • PDO sutures are used to perform cardiothoracic surgery (such as open-heart surgery). It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body.
  • Your skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months and won’t leave you with any scar tissue

HOW DOES IT WORK?

It’s amazingly simple, actually! PDO threads are a nonsurgical option to lift the face and body. The inserted threads stimulate the production of collagen and provide mechanical support to the skin. The tissues of the face neck and body are lifted, restructured and smoothed.

THE PROCEDURE

The type of threads will be chosen according to the needs of the patient and the desired effect. The face is cleansed with antiseptic soap. Injectable numbing is used for barb threads and topical numbing for smoothes. A tightening effect is seen immediately after the procedure. This will continue to improve over the next month. Treatment with smooth threads is often performed in a series for greater collagen production. The threads are reabsorbed over months, but their effects last up to a year or longer.

RESTORING THE V-SHAPE

A beautiful and healthy face has a “V-shape”. With the aging of tissues and the action of gravity, this “V-shape” diminishes or inverts. The idea behind the Nu-Mesh and the Nu-Lift technique is to either create a scaffolding in order to support the tissues and keep them in the “V-shape” or where necessary to delicately lift the tissues and reposition the skin to recreate the “V-shape&rdquo where it’s been lost.

NECK & JAW

Although PDO Threads can be inserted almost anywhere, one area where they are especially effective is the neck and jawline. The lower third of the face is challenging to treat effectively with botulinum toxin or injectable fillers, which are most effective in the upper and middle third of the face, respectively.
