Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are a special medical grade suture thread that is thinner than hair. These suture threads have been around since the 1990s by surgeons for pediatric cardiac surgery, laparoscopic surgery, orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery, and cosmetic surgery to re-approximate tissues. Re-approximation of tissues means to bringing tissues into desired position.
Once placed in the skin for lifting or for smoothening this protein suture thread is seen as foreign body in the body and initiates the recovery process which improves the blood flow to the area stimulating neocollagenesis (the production of new collagen in the skin).
Typically, PDO thread lift results will be immediate, where as smooth PDO threads take about 3 treatments.
