Read about the details of a PDO threads treatment in Playa Vista, CA, thanks to our handy guide.
What is a PDO threads treatment?
PDO (short for polydioxanone) consists of very tiny threads, thinner than a human hair, that you can barely see.
They’re made completely of protein, which your body utilizes and consumes over time.
The threads dissolve eventually, but not after your body uses them to supplement your facial structures naturally, without any invasive surgery, and without any undue stress or pain.
What does a PDO threads treatment in Playa Vista, CA, do for my facial structure?
PDO threads relax the tendons and muscles in your facial structure.
After that, your body reacts normally to the foreign substance just under your skin. Doing so improves blood flow to the area. This minor reaction of your body’s immune system encourages it to produce more collagen on that part of your face. Collagen creates a natural glow while enhancing your skin tone.
The overall effects of a PDO threads treatment include defining your face and lifting up your cheeks because of the extra collagen your body produces.
The treatment utilizes your body’s natural processes to give you the look you want without surgery.
How long do the effects of a PDO threads treatment last?
PDO threads can last up to two to three years.
You might consider augmenting PDO threads with other treatments like dermal fillers, Botox, or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) rejuvenation.
Why is a PDO threads treatment in Playa Vista, CA better than a facelift?
PDO threads are one of the best non-surgical facelift treatments available. You have no recovery time. Prep work involves just applying a topical numbing agent. You can go about your normal day after just 30 to 45 minutes.
There are no extensive recovery times. You don’t have to take pain medication or time off work.
You can still have the appearance you want without having to go under the knife.
What areas of the face do PDO threads treat?
PDO threads can treat:
We may inject PDO threads in a criss-cross pattern across the cheeks to create better lift and fill them out.
We’ll insert PDO threads along the border of the jawline with the cheeks with an anchor point near the earlobes.
We smooth out the lines of both lips when PDO threads are inserted along the borders.
PDO threads along the eyebrows can lift them while reducing wrinkles and getting rid of frown lines.
