PDO (polydioaxanone) threads are resorbable surgical sutures composed of biodegradable polymers. The treatment is minimally invasive with little downtime. Smooth threads can be placed nearly anywhere on the face or body to improve tone and texture, smooth problem areas, and stimulate collagen production. Polydioxanone (PDO) sutures are used for biomedical applications, particularly in cardiothoracic surgery because it is fully absorbed by hydrolysis within 4 to 6 months and doesn’t create any scar tissue. The foreign body stimulates collagen synthesis and the skin structure created will hold for 12 to 15 months.
Smooth threads are placed in strategic areas of the face and in specific patterns designed to maximize collagen regrowth. $2250
