What are PDO lift threads?
Lift threads consist of strong synthetic fibre PDO (polydiaxanone) which contains one (monofilament) or two (polyfilament) twisted fibres which degrade in the tissue after a certain period of time. Polydiaxanone is a known material which has been used mainly in plastic surgery in surgical sutures, in ophthalmology or gynaecology . Polydioxanone stimulates production of collagen which is responsible for the skin firmness.
The use of PDO lift threads makes the skin firmer, more flexible and hydrated. The effect of the treatment can be compared to lift surgery. Thanks to the threads natural skin tension is used.
