PDO Threads

PDO Needle Procedure

EMBEDDED THREADING

Embedded Threading (PDO Threading) is a treatment involving the use of polydioxanone sutures that are inserted into the hypodermis of the skin providing a smoothing and lifting effect. The various thread lengths and configurations give the practitioner a wide range of treatment options that dissolve in a natural manner over a course of months, while synthesizing new collagen production in the treated area. This allows the skin to present with fewer wrinkles, thus improving the skin’s overall texture and youthfulness.

The PDO threading treatment is well tolerated by patients, quick to perform, non-surgical, and there is no need for anesthesia.

The treatment is now the latest anti-aging skin treatment available to licensed practitioners.

Usage: Lower third, mid-face and neck. Used mostly on women. These are used to create vectors mid-face and the 21 gauge is used to create the outer support for the “lift” 23 can then be used for the center line of vector. This is a good vector plan for pulling up the perioral region. This is also used for the knee vector, tummy, necks and breast with cannula and sharps.

Style: Cannula, Sharp

Usage: Brow lift for men or women with heavy features. Use in Glabella folds or upper cheek lift. Not recommended for using sharps in this area. Use only cannula.

Used for the face, sharp point insertion used for mid-face, lower face lift. These are 1 and bi-directional making it easy to provide a nice smooth upward sweep mid-face. When using the bi or 3D, 4D, these can be smoothed in both directions.
Caution with sharps – while easier to work with, they generally will cause more bruising and bleeding than a cannula. Do not use on the upper face region. No upper cheeks or higher.
