PDO Threads



What Are PDO Threads?

PDO threads are absorbable suture material that is placed just under the skin to stimulate collagen production naturally from within.

  • In addition to collagen production, PDO threads can be used to contour and lift. Both defining and correcting the effects of age.
  • It is one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body.
  • Your skin will fully absorb the material within 4 to 6 months and will not leave you with any scar tissue.

How Are Threads Placed?


  • A pre-loaded needle or cannula is inserted gently into the skin. The PDO thread stays beneath the skin when removing the needle or cannula. Nothing is left behind or sticking out.
  • The PDO threads absorb completely in about 6 months leaving behind collagen and visible results lasting one year or longer for most people.
