Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are a specific medical grade thread made of protein that is thinner than hair. PDO threads are considered as a safe and easy treatment to encourage collagen formation.

PDO relaxes tendons and muscles, while a foreign body reaction enhances blood flow to the region, boosting neocollagenesis (the production of new collagen in the skin), according to research.


How does it work?

The treatment procedure involves inserting biodegradable, absorbable, and nonallergenic medical "sutures," also known as threads, into the skin to encourage collagen formation.

Over a four to six-month period, the PDO Threads are gently broken down and bio-absorbed naturally in the skin tissue. The first is to tighten the skin immediately. The second step is to enhance your body's natural capacity to produce collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid (HA).

Collagen is a protein that is responsible for the tension and firmness of skin. Elastin is responsible for skin firmness and elasticity. HA rehydrates the skin.

PDO Threads result in enhanced skin hydration and the elimination of fine lines and wrinkles.

Frequently Asked Questions

PDO Threads

The outcome of the treatment is determined by the patients age, lifestyle, medical history and skin quality. You will see some noticeable effects right away, but the results will increase over the next 2 to 6 weeks as the Intraline PDO Threads boost the body's natural capacity to manufacture new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid (HA).

The PDO Threads will gradually bio-absorb over a 6 month period, lasting on average for 12-18 months. For longer lasting results it is recommended to have additional threads injected at regular intervals after your initial treatment.

PDO Thread treatment is a minimally invasive surgery with a short recovery period. Bruising, swelling, and minor pain are possible side effects.
