PDO (polydioxanone) tightening threads are a type of non-surgical aesthetic treatment used for the rejuvenation of certain areas of the body. These threads are made of an absorbable biocompatible material that is used to tighten and lift the skin. They are usually associated with facial rejuvenation, but here we tell you how they work in other parts of the body.
How the treatment is applied to different parts of the body
The PDO thread tightening procedure involves inserting the threads into the skin through small incisions or entry points. These incisions are very small and generally do not require sutures. The threads are equipped with small bidirectional spikes or cones that anchor into the skin and provide support and tension.
Once inserted, the threads stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. These substances are responsible for maintaining firmness and elasticity. As the threads gradually dissolve into the body, new collagen formed around them maintains the tightening and lifting effects.
PDO tightening threads can be used in different areas of the body, such as the face, neck, arms, thighs and buttocks. Different aesthetic problems can be treated, such as sagging skin, wrinkles, expression lines and lack of definition in certain areas.
It is important to keep in mind that the PDO thread tightening procedure must be performed by a doctor or professional trained like Dr. María Fernanda Benavides in this type of techniques.
Benefits of tension threads in the neck, arms, thighs and buttocks
As we mentioned previously, tightening threads are used in these areas with the aim of treating sagging and improving the appearance of the skin. Below, we detail the benefits of tension threads in each of these areas:
- Neck. Lifting threads can help tighten and lift the skin on the neck, reducing sagging and wrinkles in this area. They can also improve the definition of the mandibular angle and soften the folds of the neck, such as the so-called “Venus bands.”
- Arms. Over time, the skin on the arms can become sagging and sagging, especially in people who have experienced significant weight loss or due to the natural aging process. Lifting threads can tighten the skin on your arms, reduce sagging, and improve your overall appearance.
- Thighs. Thread lifts are used to treat sagging inner thighs, which may be caused by loss of skin elasticity or changes in body composition. The threads can help tighten and lift the skin on your thighs, providing a firmer, more toned appearance.
- Buttocks. PDO tightening threads are also used on the buttocks to improve their shape and firmness. They can lift sagging buttocks, improve definition and give a tighter, more toned appearance.
