PDO Threads

— Idaho Falls, Idaho —

Polydioxanone or PDO threads are used in facial rejuvenation.  They stimulate the process of neocollagenesis, or in layman’s terms, they stimulate the body’s own collagen production.  As the thread is broken down the body builds collagen adding fullness and volume to the area. There are multiple applications for PDO threads including smoothing and lifting threads. 

Smoothing threads can be used for fine lines and static wrinkles.  They are also very effective for acne scarring.  They are placed under the skin and begin stimulating collagen, adding volume and fullness to the treated area.  The process is completed in 3 rounds 4 weeks apart.  The effects will peak at 6 months and the results can last from 18-24 months. 

Lifting threads are made of PDO material but they are placed in a pattern that lifts the tissue in the face.  They are effective for areas of the face that have lost volume and the skin has begun to sag.  There are multiple applications for lifting threads including nasolabial folds, sagging jowls in the lower face, and loose skin under the chin and neck.  They can also be used in other areas of the body to lift and tighten the skin.  It’s a simple procedure that can be done in under an hour and results are seen instantly. 

There are some risks involved with PDO threads including bruising, bleeding, and swelling.  There can be some slight nerve pain as the threads may encounter the small nerve fibers under the skin.  This will resolve as the threads break down and dissolve. 

It’s important to have a consultation with a trained professional to evaluate the skin and review your medical history.  There are some conditions that disqualify a candidate for the procedure.
