What is a PDO thread lift?
PDO stands for polydioxanone. Quite literally, a PDO thread is a type of surgical suture, which has been around for over 50 years. When inserted into human tissue, PDO causes collagen and elastin production. PDO threads used for a thread lift are very different from the smooth PDO threads discussed elsewhere. PDO lifting threads are thicker and longer and have small “barbs” on them, to help pull, lift and tighten the skin. If you are going for the facial thread lift, you can expect to have a total of four to ten (4-10) threads used in your face.
