Suppose you look older than your chronological age due to genetics, health conditions, excessive drinking, smoking, or unprotected sun damage. PDO threads may be the answer. PDO threads lift your skin almost immediately without the invasive use of surgery. It promotes collagen production and contracts tissues to promote instant skin tightening.
PDO Threads take about 15 to 30 minutes to do; after that, you can go back to work or your scheduled activities for the rest of the day. Before treatment, we apply a topical numbing cream and local anesthetic to the treatment sites. The needles used during POO treatments are so fine there you will have little discomfort. Once placed into the right layer of skin, the PDO thread acts as an anchor and lifts the skin upwards. Then, excess threads are cut off.
PDO threads are polydioxanone synthetic monofilament fiber that consists of one solid fiber of thread. Your body absorbs the thread in about 4-6 months, and your skin continues to firm up due to collagen production. You will also notice the improved texture, and skin continues to improve over the next 4-6 months.
