Thread lift PDO: noninvasive technique for a lifting effect

The PDO tensioning threads are an ideal treatment to apply to the face, neck and other areas of the body globally, or focusing on certain facial areas (bar code, crow's feet or peribucal commissures). The advantage of this treatment is that it is ambulatory and does not require post-treatment measures , because it is a non-aggressive technique.

This technique was introduced by Dr. Josep Maria Caussa, although it quickly spread to the other doctors of Medisoc Clínica Corachán.


The procedure

The implantation of the PDO tensile threads is done quickly and easily in the consultation using a minimally invasive technique that consists of placing the threads in areas where there is flaccidity, creating lifting vectors.

These are reabsorbed between 6 and 12 months after their placement, although the result can be seen beyond a year and a half. The material of the threads has been used for many years as resorbable sutures of multiple types of surgeries, such as cardiac surgeries.


Combination with other treatments

PDO tensile threads can be used as a sole treatment to reinforce the elastin and collagen formation of the skin and provide more tension, elasticity and density to the skin, but it is recommended to combine it with other treatments, such as fractional laser or facial mesotherapy , to further enhance the stimulation of collagen and elastin and improve the anti-flaccidity result.

They are also combinable with resorbable fillers to correct volumes, while creating tension, with the antiflacidity effect of the PDO tension wires.
