PDO threads

Normal aging includes the loss of collagen and elastin over time, leading to sagging and wrinkling of skin. Newer minimally invasive options without significant downtime are now well-researched and available. One such option is thread lifts. These work in different ways depending on the type of thread used. Some threads are barbed and can be used to lift and hold your skin back in place. These results are modifiable depending on your preference and immediate needs. This gives the appearance of a natural non-surgical face lift. These threads also stimulate development of collagen and elastin giving some longer-lasting effects. Because of this ability, threads can also be placed similarly to fillers with natural affects. In general, the effects are longer lasting than fillers.
