Non-Surgical Lifting and Skin Tightening For the Face and Body For Men and Women in Portland, Oregon by RajaniMD
How Threads Work
Polydioxanone is a synthetic fiber. PDO threads have been safely used for years in biomedical applications such as heart surgery or skin sutures. These threads are absorbed by the body within 4-6 months and because of their small diameter, PDO threads do not create any scar tissue; but instead stimulate collagen and elastin synthesis around them. PDO threads have been used all around the world for years, including Europe and Asia.
In addition to producing collagen and elastin, it is also found that polydioxanone increases the amount of hyaluronic acid found within the dermis. Amazing!
What Is So Important About Collagen?
Collagen is a type of protein that holds the skin together. Your skin is made up of more than 60% collagen. The more collagen a person has, the younger their skin looks. Loss of collagen happens as the body ages and is the number one element in why skin looks aged. Less collagen means more fine lines, wrinkles and the skin starts to slide and sag.
Replenishing collagen and maintaining collagen in the skin is vitally important to having young, youthful looking skin.
PDO Threads in Portland, OR
In the aesthetic industry, PDO threads are now being used as a great method to lift sagging skin and give it a younger, firm appearance. There are no cuts, no incisions, just injections only–no downtime! When placed in the skin properly, the PDO threads will stimulate collagen production around them, and even after the threads have been absorbed, the new skin structures will continue to hold for another 12 months. PDO threads can be placed in almost every area of the body. All of this can be done in under an hour with no downtime.
Once PDO threads have been placed in the skin, the body will naturally begin producing new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. The skin will look tighter, more firm and smooth.
Popular areas to get PDO threads are: eyebrows, jowls, knees, décolletage, thighs, and stomach! No more saggy, “creepey” looking skin.
