PDO Smooth Threads

PDO Smooth Threads

PDO threads are the latest trend in cosmetic treatments. They are also known as smooth or slick threads. They are soft, flexible sutures that are placed into the tissues of the face to create a firming or lifting effect. These have been used in the cosmetic industry for many years now and are highly effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the areas such as the eyes and mouth. 

The threads are made of polydioxanone material which is completely bio-compatible with the body's tissues and is known to have minimal side effects. However, these come with some mild complications, including headaches, bruising, or slight discomfort in the areas that have been treated. In some cases, there can be a small amount of inflammation which settles quite quickly.

How Are PDO Smooth Threads Placed?

The procedure involves the skin being numbed with a local anesthetic gel first so that the insertion of the thread is as comfortable as possible for the patient. The PDO threads can then be carefully placed below the surface of the skin using a needle to tug them through the tissue, and then they are anchored into place using dissolvable stitches. The wound is then left to heal naturally, so patients can expect to see an immediate improvement in the areas they have treated, but the full results will be visible around two months later.

How Are PDO Smooth Threads Used?

At Denali Dental Care, we use PDO smooth threads to help patients with minor to moderate wrinkles and lines around their mouth. These facial rejuvenation techniques are minimally invasive and an excellent way to temporarily improve the appearance of your skin. PDO threads are small sutures that are inserted into the skin to add extra support to the skin and improve fine lines and wrinkles. The sutures are eventually absorbed by the body and leave no scarring behind.

One of the best parts about PDO threads is that the result is immediate. After your treatment, you can expect to see a smoother, more refreshed appearance in your face and neck area. Plus, because PDO threads only last for about six months, you don't have to commit to a long-term treatment plan if you don't want to do so. You can simply wait until your results start to fade before booking another appointment. This also allows patients to easily maintain their desired results year-round by offering them a quick and affordable procedure that leaves them with long-lasting and beautiful results.
