PDO stands for Polydioxanone, which is the same type of biocompatible and bioabsorbable material used in surgical sutures. During a PDO thread treatment,we make tiny entries with very fine PDO threads into the area that needs to be lifted, like the jaw line or brow. Strategic placement of the threads in the superficial tissue of the skin makes it possible to lift and tighten skin without any surgery or anesthesia.
Once the threads are situated in the skin, new bundles of collagen naturally form around each thread. This means that once the threads dissolve in six to eight months, the skin remains tight and healthy thanks to the presence of so much new collagen. Dr. Ramos knows exactly how to place the threads in your skin to help you look refreshed, rejuvenated, and years younger.
It’s an acupuncture-type needle with a polydioxanone (PDO) thread inside its center. The needle is placed under the dermis, just above the subcutaneous tissue, and when it is removed, the thread stays in place. PDO is a safe, synthetic thread that has been used for more than three decades, starting in pediatric cardiac surgery.
Once inserted, the threads dissolve over four to six months. Meanwhile, “Fibroblasts”are attracted to and migrate towards these threads. The fibroblasts then begin producing collagen and elastin for four to six months. Wherever the threads are placed, the skin becomes regenerated – not just with increased collagen and elastin, but also with greater vascularity. The result is thicker, healthier-looking, more elastic skin, and a smoother, more radiant surface.
There is minimal bruising and swelling. Patients cannot exercise for 48 hours post-procedure, but other than that, they can wear make-up and return to work. Recovery takes about one hour,
Every patient is different. The threads dissolve in 4-6 months and the collagen and elastin. The fibroblasts then begin producing
collagen and elastin for four to six more months. Wherever the threads are placed, the skin becomes regenerated – not just with increased collagen and elastin, but also with greater vascularity.
The key difference between the PDO Thread Lift and older-generation lifts, such as the Contour Lift, is that the latter uses sutures that do not dissolve. PDO threads dissolve at temperatures above 30° C. The Contour lift did not regenerate the skin.
Also the original Contour threads used hooks which could become inverted causing an unwanted result. Using the new POD threads avoids these complications
