PDO Threads are a versatile, well-tolerated solution to tighten and lift the skin. FDA-approved for soft-tissue lifting of the face and body, PDO Threads are injected into the dermis layer to delicately lift and reposition the skin. After placement, patients will notice an immediate lift that will gradually improve over the next 2-6 months.If you’re noticing sagging along the jawline, mid-face, neck, knees, elbows, breasts and elsewhere on the face and body, schedule a complimentary consultation with one of RejuvenationMD’s expert providers, contact us in Bellingham at 360-685-8408 or Burlington at 360-982-2620.
The Science Behind PDO Threads
Polydioxanone is a strong, biodegradable polymer that has been used in both orthopedic and cosmetic applications for over a decade. Once injected, PDO Threads create a scaffolding-like structure that improves the framework of the skin. The threads stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. As the threads dissolve over the next 6 months collagen formation increases, helping to lift, tighten and hence restructure the skin for another 12 to 15 months.
