PDO Threads at Spring Mountain Aesthetics
PDO sutures are a type of material used for thread lifts. PDO, which stands for polydioxanone, is an absorbable polymer that is flexible and durable for minimally invasive thread lifts. PDO thread lifts, sometimes referred to as PDS thread lifts, come in a variety of textures.
Research has confirmed that PDO relaxes tendons and muscles, whilst a foreign body reaction improves the blood flow to the area stimulating collagen synthesis (the production of new collagen in the skin).
What is a Thread Lift?
A thread lift, also called a barbed suture lift, is a cosmetic procedure that aims to lift and sculpt the shape of your face or breasts. Thread lifts use temporary, medical-grade suture material to “stitch-up” your skin so that it’s drawn taut.
Thread lift procedure is a minimally invasive alternative to facelift surgery and is considered a low-risk procedure with minimal recovery time. This procedure can be performed in about 45 minutes, and, if you want to, you can go right back to work afterward!
Eurothreads are a type of Polydioxanone (PDO) surgical sutures composed of biodegradable polymers. The treatment is minimally invasive and produces instant results.
EuroThreads are particularly great because they are fully absorbed by hydrolysis within 4 to 6 months and they don’t create any scar tissue. Furthermore, Eurothreads stimulate the formation of collagen, which gives the skin elasticity and diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This improves the skin’s quality and texture over time, while also lifting and adding volume to areas that have laxity.
Normally, an EuroThread Lift can hold for at least 12 to 15 months.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A EUROTHREAD LIFT?
Provides instant results without general anesthesia, hospitalization or an extended recovery period. Provides immediate boost to correct the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles. Treatments are effective for areas in both the face and body.
This minimally invasive, in-office procedure promotes your body’s natural collagen and elastin production. Due to the insertion of threads, blood flow and lymphatic circulation increases resulting in your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin.
Reduces the appearance of aging through thread insertion beneath the skin like that acts as a support system while promoting collagen production. Results from the dermis augmentation are noticed after four to six weeks. Individual results vary.
