PDO Threads

PDO threads are a cosmetic treatment that you can use to lift and tighten saggy areas of your skin. This treatment is minimally invasive, which means it does not require surgery, making it a great option if you want to improve your looks without undergoing a major procedure.

PDO stands for polydioxanone, a safe and biodegradable material that has been used in medical procedures for many years. In this treatment, thin threads made of PDO are placed under your skin using a small needle. These threads help to lift sagging skin and also stimulate collagen production, which is a protein that keeps your skin strong and elastic.

The PDO thread treatment usually takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the area being treated. Since it is minimally invasive, there is little to no downtime, and you can get back to your busy schedule. Some common side effects include mild swelling or bruising, but these usually go away within a few days.

You will notice the results of PDO thread treatment here at Thayer Dental Care immediately, as your skin appears firmer and more lifted. Over time, as your body produces more collagen, the results will continue to improve. It is important to remember that the effects of PDO threads are not permanent, but they can last for several months to a few years, depending on various factors such as your age, skin type and lifestyle choices.
