What are PDO Threads and How Do They Work?
PDO threads are an excellent way to enhance your appearance without surgery or invasiveness. They are ideal for those who want to avoid the risks and downtime associated with surgery, and they can be used to achieve a variety of different looks. The threads are made of polydioxanone, the same substance that is utilized in dissolvable stitches. PDO threads will dissolve over time and be absorbed by the body after inserted under the skin.
The production of collagen in the skin can be stimulated by PDO threads. As we become older, our bodies generate less and less collagen, which causes wrinkles, drooping skin, and loss of suppleness. The threads provide an internal support structure for the skin, which gives it lift and helps to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. In addition to the lifting effect, the threads also help produce collagen, leading to more permanent results.
There are many benefits to using PDO threads as follows. Threads are non-invasively inserted into the skin using a needle–no surgery or cutting required. This ensures little downtime and recovery time for patients. In addition, they offer natural results because PDO threads stimulate collagen production, the results are natural-looking and long-lasting. They can be used to achieve a variety of different looks, from a subtle lift to a more dramatic transformation.
PDO threads are inserted into the subcutaneous layer of the skin through the use of a needle. Once in place, they provide an immediate lift to the treated area. The threads have collagen-stimulating effects, which result in further skin tightening and rejuvenation with time. PDO threads typically last for 6-12 months, after which they will be naturally absorbed by the body. The results might endure up to two years if properly cared for.
Trained medical professionals often use PDO threads because they are safe. The material the threads are made of is similar to that of dissolvable stitches, minimizing the risk of allergic reaction or rejection. There is also minimal risk of infection with PDO threads. However, as with any injection-based treatment, there is a small risk of bruising, swelling, and discomfort at the injection site. Most of the side effects usually disappear within a week even without medical aid.
Both men and women of all skin types can have PDO threads. They are an excellent option for those who want to avoid surgery or invasiveness, and they can be used to achieve a variety of different looks. If you are considering PDO threads for your cosmetic needs, it is important to consult with an expert who has experience with this procedure.
