PDO (Polydioxonone) Threads lift and tighten sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production. This lifting method involves the implantation of multiple, fine Polydioxanone (PDO) threads, into the subcutaneous layer of the skin creating a vectorial network to support the tissue.
Once implanted into the skin, the threads produce an immediate, visible lifting effect. After the short (30-90 minute) procedure, skin feels rejuvenated, bringing vitality, elasticity and a brighter complexion. The lifting effect is at its peak after six months of biological (enzymatic) absorption or hydrolysis, from there the threads will be absorbed into the body leaving new collagen in their place.
What are Intraline Threads Made of?
Intraline’s threads are made of Polydioxanone (PDO), an extremely safe material used commonly in heart surgery to encourage cell cohesion. It is a re-absorbable sterile thread and is completely safe without producing any allergic reactions.
What is PDO Thread Treatment?
The treatments are designed to treat individual patients with individual concerns. The threads are placed in or just under the skin and stimulate the production of your own collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. They also stimulate the development of new blood vessels and improve lymphatic drainage giving a better skin quality with a smoother brighter appearance. The results start immediately and continue to improve for 6-8 months, lasting up to 18 months.
Elastin offers the skin elasticity associated with youthful skin and the Hyaluronic Acid binds water giving an enhanced hydration. This combination of effects gives an amazing rejuvenation to ageing skin and helps to reverse and slow the ageing process in skin.
Intraline Threads have a powerful dual effect. The first is to give immediate tightening of the skin. The second is to stimulate the body’s own ability to generate Collagen, Elastin and Hyaluronic Acid (HA).
- Collagen is a protein responsible for the tension and firmness of skin
- Elastin is responsible for skin firmness and elasticity
- Hyaluronic Acid (HA) causes skin to rehydrate, stimulating Hyaluronic Acid (HA) production, results in improved skin moisture and the reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
