PDO thread lift from Bloom Facial Plastic Surgery
The PDO thread lift has been a popular procedure in countries like Asia and Europe for over a decade, and now it’s being done more and more in the U.S. This treatment lifts and tightens loose skin using biodegradable PDO (polydioxanone) or PLLA (poly-L-lactic acid) threads, which are “threaded” into the face.
When the threads are tightened, the skin is lifted while, at the same time, new collagen production is triggered. This process results in skin that is firmer, tighter, and more youthful-looking. Because the threads are biodegradable, they dissolve within a few months. However, the collagen network remains.
