What are they?
PDO threads are small threads made from polydioxanone acid. When inserted under the skin, they cause an inflammatory reaction which results in intense collagen stimulation. This helps to increase tissue thickness and improve skin laxity in the treated area.
What conditions are they used for?
PDO threads are ideal for use in areas where the skin is lax and crepey. Typical areas treated include cheeks, necks, upper arms, above knees, buttocks, breasts, and abdomens. The resultant collagen stimulation in the treated area leads to an improvement in tissue quality and tightening of the skin.
All skin types can be safely treated and treatment cost is determined by the size of the area to be treated and the number and type of PDO threads used.
