Pdo threads

The effects of the treatment with Pdo threads

Many different types of threads are available at MEDESTETIS. In general, the threads can be divided into biorevitalising threads and lifting threads. The bioressential threads include thinner Pdo threads, without hooks. Lifting threads are those that contain hooks that allow you to pull up the tissue. The use of some Pdo threads allows you to modify the work of the muscles responsible for facial expressions, and at the same time affecting the formation of wrinkles. They do not immobilize muscles, but only impair their activity. Lifting threads have properties that stimulate the body to produce new collagen fibers (the so-called neocololagenesis process). It allows to stimulate local renewal of fibers. As a result, treated areas become elastic and do not flaccid. In addition, there is a greater activation of connective tissue cells, which leads to the synthesis of elastin responsible for elasticity and elasticity of the skin.

What does the treatment look like?

Like all medical procedures, the treatment is preceded by a thorough medical consultation. This allows you to verify the indications and possible contraindications to perform the treatment. The essence of this innovative therapy is the introduction of specialized Pdo threads into areas requiring regeneration. This is done using specially prepared, very thin needles. Threads tighten, and at the same time lift the skin, which gives the effect of volume improvement and firming. They are made of polydioxanone, that is, synthetic fiber having dissolution properties in the tissue. Depending on the conditions and needs of the patient, the doctor supports the appropriate type of thread and the size of the needle to be treated. Natural face tension lines are used when introducing threads. Importantly, the treatment does not change facial features, nor does it increase the volume of the cheeks, which could cause an unnatural effect.

Time of the treatment

The treatment usually lasts from 30 to 60 minutes.

Period of convalescence after treatment with Pdo threads

Typically, face lift using lifting threads does not cause unwanted changes or require a long recovery period. Sometimes slight bruising can occur, which disappears after a few days.

Time of face lifting effects

The threads last around 240 days in the body. During this time collagen and elastin are synthesized, which improves the aesthetics of the skin. The treatment gives effects that can last even for 2 years.
