Polydioxanone (PDO) monofilament threads are a specialised clinical treatment which stimulate the body’s natural collagen production to produce a gradual skin thickening, skin tightening and rejuvenation effect.
PDO monofilament threads are specifically designed to be inserted in a mesh formation beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and soften creases, commonly treated areas include:
- Accordion lines
- Neck and jawline
- Nose to mouth lines
- Marionette lines
- Under eye lines
PDO monofilament threads are one of the newest clinical treatments developed to help soften facial lines and creases, plump facial volume and thicken the skin, working to restore a more youthful appearance. Unlike other injectable treatments, PDO monofilament threads incorporate the body’s natural collagen synthesis mechanism to improve skin laxity and appearance from within.
PDO (Polydioxanone) monofilament threads are flexible, free floating absorbable polymer threads which are introduced underneath the skin in a matrix formation and dissolve over a 6-8 week period. As these threads dissolve, the natural process of collagen synthesis occurs, replacing the thread matrix with collagen Type 3 working to thicken, plump and tighten the skin.
PDO threads are powerful when used in conjunction with complementary dermal and injectable treatments, however they are effective as a standalone procedure for targeted areas or for those not wanting to have injectables.
PDO thread treatment plans are highly individual. Commonly treated areas include:
- Accordion Lines/Cheek Crepiness
- Cheek Volume Loss
- Crows Feet
- Eyebrow rejuvenation
- Frown Lines
- Jawline and Submental
- Lip Border
- Peri-oral Lip Lines
- Marionette Lines/Oral Commissures
- Naso-labial Folds
- Neck Rejuvenation
- Temple Hollows
- Under Eye
