PDO Thread Lift in Snoqualmie North Bend Sammamish Issaquah
PDO (Polydioxanone) thread lift is a nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedure that passes threads beneath the surface of your skin to provide some immediate lift, stimulate collagen growth, and firm the tissue over time. Appropriately positioned, they can create subtle, natural-looking results and a more youthful appearance.
Polydioxanone is used for biomedical applications, particularly in cardiothoracic surgery because it is fully absorbed by hydrolysis within 4 to 6 months & doesn't create any scar tissue. The foreign body stimulates collagen synthesis & the skin structure created will hold for longer time.
PDO thread lift is one of best non-surgical options for lifting the face and neck. A thread lift procedure can help you to achieve a taut, natural looking lift with progressive rejuvenation. Results are immediate and improvements are seen as collagen production continues to tighten the skin naturally from within.
