PDO Threads Can Very Effectively:
How Does the treatment work?
PDO threads help redefine facial contours and induce collagen production. Stimulation reaches full effect about 3 months after treatment, once collagen has naturally formed around the thread. A recent study by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery showed that the thread is safely absorbed within 4-6 months, and by the 7th month, the collagen present in the treated area increases by 100%. Results may last between 8 and 14 months.
What happens during the treatment and how long does it take?
Local anesthetic is gently injected into the entry points for the threads. The PDO threads are introduced using a delicate needle or a fine microcannula. You will be able to resume everyday activities in a couple of days. Great results can be achieved by combining PDO threads with dermal fillers or neuro-modulators. Treatment time can vary between 20 and 60 minutes depending on the area treated.
