The PDO skin booster or Polydioxanone is a colorless, crystalline, biodegradable synthetic polymer. PDO sutures have many benefits over other sutures like better strength, uniformity of the caliber, good biological tolerability, totally absorbable by hydrolysis and reabsorption by the lymphatic system.
PDO threads increase the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid and improves circulation. By stimulating new collage, it results in increase elasticity and firmness of the skin. Bio-stimulation is a new approach that can lift the face, neck and body. The insertion of these filaments which are absorbed in the tissue leaves the skin firmer, more elastic and better hydrated.
The results of using medithread PDO suture as a treatment are: rejuvenation, lifting effect, toning of the tissue, wrinkling improvement and hydrated skin. Results are seen right away and after two weeks the body starts the synthesis of elastin and collagen. Results continue up to six to nine months until the suture is completely absorbed, however the aesthetic effects might last up to 18 months.
