Title: PDO threads to redefining the facial contour and inducing collagen production
Biography: Cristiane Shimazu
PDO threads is a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone (PDO). It’s a hypodermic needles preloaded with an absorbable PDO suture. Thread lifting is a procedure that works to tackle sags and folds. The procedure is becoming more popular than ever before as demand grows for skin care where less is more.The PDO thread lift is designed to help restore your facial structure and reduce the visible signs of ageing without the need for surgery. The PDO lift works by using threads-cannula (thin tube) beneath the skin and attaching them to the surrounding tissue to lift the face and tighten the skin. The PDO thread lift works by redefining the facial contours and inducing collagen production creating a lifting effect which lasts for up to 2 years. The threads will form an integrated support structure for the tissue of the face due to collagen synthesis. Usually, ten to thirty threads are applied in a treatment, requiring a local anaesthetic, that can last from 30 minutes to 1 hour. Expect mild to moderate swelling, but recovery time is on average two to three days. The threads, which come in different lengths, are pulled up to create the lift and can be successfully combined with filler and other treatments.
The results can be noticed immediately, but it is necessary to reduce the edema to view the effects under the skin.
