HERE'S THE SKINNY
What is it & how long does it last?
Polydioxanone is a dissolvable suture material used in surgical procedures, including cardiothoracic surgery. The suture dissolves by hydrolysis over 4 to 6 months without creating scar tissue. The material stimulates collagen production along the area of the suture and last from 12 to 15 months.
PDO Threads are a less invasive alternative to a facelift, in the right client. The results are seen immediately and improve over time as your body stimulates natural collagen.

LIFTING VS. SMOOTH THREADS
Cogs, barbs, smooth and twist Oh MY!
There are multiple descriptions and names of threads. Here is a quick tutorial.
Cog/Barbs/Molded: These terms describe threads with barbs or molded cogs used to LIFT tissues. Areas such as cheeks, smile lines, jawline are treated with lifting threads. These threads also stimulation collagen in the lifted area.
Smooth/Mono: These smooth singular threads provide a small lift and stimulate neocollagenesis. The end result is increased volume in small areas such as necklace lines, cheeks, temples, lips and many other areas.
Twist: These threads twist around the cannula. The 'twisted' nature gives an increased collagen stimulation affects when compared to traditional Smooth/Mono threads. These are recommended for deeper folds, wrinkles, cavities, acne scars and nasolabial folds,
