Non-Surgical collagen formation and lifting with Absorbable Polydiaxanone (PDO) Threads is a common practice now days used for facial some body parts lifting.PDO is a strong synthetic mono filament that is absorbed by the body in 6 months, but results might last up to 1 year. There are different threads used for different purposes.

PDO Threads create not only collagen, but also mild fibrosis that strengthen the skin, resulting in pulling up the skin. Results are usually seen immediately and also gradually, the suture restores lost collagen, maintaining volume over time.

PDO stands for Polydioxanone. It is a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone.PDO suture are used to perform cardiothoracic surgery (such as open-heart surgery). It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the human body. Your skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months and won’t leave any scar tissue. There are 2 types of threads. Smooth and Barbed. The smooth threads create a mesh under the skin that serves as a foundation for the new collagen. The barbed threads provide grip for underneath skin creating instant definition. The results of the threads last up to 9-12 months and can be combined with other treatments for additional lifting and tightening.

In some cases, they will replace dermal fillers when only lifting is desired, or can be combined with them when both lift and volume are desired.

The PDO threads represent a whole new genre of facial rejuvenation, one that we believe is here to stay.

The love for taut and smooth skin is a prime cosmetic for all people around the world. It is a common realization to have a visual image of you that looks much younger, although in reality the situation might be a lot different. It is always heartbreaking to look at your own reflection and not recognize the visage that is staring back at you. The need to look younger and vibrant is one which goes through the minds of every individual. It is owing to these very reasons that the technique of PDO thread lift had been discovered. Here at MD Ageless Solutions, we pride ourselves in being the best service providers of PDO thread lift that will help restore the youthful appearance of your skin and make you look as young as ever.

What is PDO thread lift?

The technique of PDO thread lift was first discovered in Korea. The main reason behind the discovery of this technique was to help people look younger on the outside and restore the taunt and smoothness of the skin. After being mastered in Korea, the technique of PDO thread lift began to be popularized in the rest of world, especially in Europe and America. The main concept behind this technique involves the use of soluble threads that are implanted under your skin. These threads start to dissolve over time and cause the growth of collagen. Collagen is an element that is found in skin tissues and is responsible for the elasticity and smoothness of the skin. The growth of other compounds which are responsible for healing and rejuvenating the skin is also promoted by PDO thread lift. The final result of this treatment includes a tighter, smoother skin that has very few wrinkles on it.

The threads used in PDO thread lifts are mono filament threads. This means that these threads do not have any jagged edges and are very smooth, thereby preventing the growth of bacterial infections. The design of these threads is smooth in order to facilitate their travel in a unhindered fashion through the tissue of the skin. This reduces or even eliminates any chance of structural damage that might be caused by the threads. The average time taken for PDO threads to dissolve is usually between 180-200 days. The materials that have been used in the threads for PDO facelift are composed of neutral elements, thereby preventing any chance of allergy to develop.

There are mainly two types of threads that are involved in the procedure of PDO threads lift. One is the smooth version, while the other is the barbed version. The smooth threads are used in order to create a form of mesh under your skin that will act as the foundation for the growth of collagen, while the barbed versions are used in to provide definition and grip to your skin.

Here at MD Ageless, we use the best quality PDO threads, to provide you with the youthful look that you had desired. Our staff and medical professionals are highly trained in the art of PDO thread lifting and will give your face an exceptional look and feel after the commencing of the treatment.

How PDO thread lifting is done?

A PDO thread lift can be considered as a minimally invasive technique of restoring the youthful qualities to the skin of your face. The process is done by first numbing the area that is to be treated with the help of local anesthesia. Blunt or sharp pointed needles also known as cannulas are used to insert the PDO threads into the skin of the area that is supposed to undergo the treatment. The Threads are inserted into the different layers that the skin has in order to provide maximum results. Once the threads have been inserted, they help in anchoring the skin and lifting it upwards. The threads that remain as excess are then cut off. The procedure usually takes 15-30 minutes depending on the area that is being treated. There might be slight irritation and discomfort during the process but here at MD Ageless, we have developed techniques and advanced improvements that help reduce the discomfort to a negligible minimum.
