PDO (Polydioxanone) Threads lift and tighten sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production. This lifting method involves implanting multiple fine Polydioxanone (PDO) threads into the subcutaneous layer of the skin, creating a vectorial network to support the tissue.
Once implanted into the skin, the threads produce an immediate, visible lifting effect. After the short (30-90 minute) procedure, the skin feels rejuvenated, bringing vitality, elasticity, and a brighter complexion. The lifting effect is at its peak after six months of biological (enzymatic) absorption or hydrolysis. From there, the threads will be absorbed into the body leaving new collagen in their place.
What are Intraline Threads Made of?
Intraline’s threads are made of Polydioxanone (PDO), an extremely safe material used commonly in heart surgery to encourage cell cohesion. It is a re-absorbable sterile thread and is completely safe without producing any allergic reactions.
What is PDO Thread Treatment?
The treatments are designed to treat individual patients with individual concerns. The threads are placed in or just under the skin and stimulate your own collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production. They also stimulate new blood vessels’ development and improve lymphatic drainage, giving a better skin quality with a smoother, brighter appearance. The results start immediately and continue to improve for 6-8 months, lasting up to 18 months.
Elastin offers the skin elasticity associated with youthful skin, and Hyaluronic Acid binds to water giving enhanced hydration. This combination of effects gives an amazing rejuvenation to aging skin and helps reverse and slow the skin’s aging process.
Intraline Threads have a powerful dual effect. The first is to give immediate tightening of the skin. The second is to stimulate the body’s ability to generate Collagen, Elastin, and Hyaluronic Acid (HA).
- Collagen is a protein responsible for the tension and firmness of the skin.
- Elastin is responsible for skin firmness and elasticity.
- Hyaluronic Acid (HA) causes the skin to rehydrate, stimulating Hyaluronic Acid (HA) production, results in improved skin moisture and the reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
