Derma Threads are made of soluble PDO (polydioxanone), a material used in medicine for many years, mainly in surgery. PDO relaxes muscles and tendons while stimulating the production of new collagen in the skin. PDO also stimulates the production of elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin, vital for creating youthful looking skin. Effective in facial lifting and winkle removal through self-stimulation of cell. There is no interruption in daily life even right after the procedure and no side effects or worries about removal as it will be fully dissolved in the body after one to two years. This is biodegradable and biocompatible.
How do PDO Threads work?
The PDO thread is inserted into the skin through a very fine needle or cannula causing an artificial wound, inducing a healing effect improving the skin. Creating upper and lower contraction between skin and muscle, or skeletons, the thread causes a lifting effect. When located in solid tissue, near bones or ligament, the fixed tissue has a stronger adhesion effect on the skin.
Different lengths and thicknesses of thread are used for different areas of the face and body. Short strands of threads are often used to treat fine lines around the eyes, while thicker strands can be injected into the muscles of the forehead as an alternative to Botox.
