Collagen is a protein which gives your skin structure and elasticity. Loss of collagen is one of the top causes of aging skin. PDO threads are dissolvable sutures which are used to rejuvenate, lift, and shape sagging skin. The threads trigger cells in your body to produce more collagen without creating scar tissue. The most commonly treated areas are around your cheeks, jaw, neck, and eyes.
While the threads may be absorbed in 4-6 months, the collagen and skin structure created typically holds for another 12-15 months. Many have reported results lasting up to three years.
If you are looking for less invasive way to combat signs of aging. PDO threads are a less expensive, easier, and faster alternative to a facelift. The results are typically instant, although less dramatic than a facelift. The risks and recovery time with PDO threads are minimal, and most can return to work the same day.
