Tighten loose skin
PDO Threads are a ‘non-surgical’ face and neck lift treatment. The threads are used to lift and tighten the skin by stimulating new collagen production, reducing wrinkles, tightening pores and creating volume.
Honey Derma Threads are made of soluble PDO (Polydioxanone), a material used in medicine for many years, mainly in surgery. PDO relaxes muscles and tendons while stimulating the production of new collagen in the skin. PDO also stimulates the production of elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin, vital for creating youthful looking skin. Effective in facial lifting and wrinkle removal through self-stimulation of cell.
PDO Threads are both biodegradable and biocompatible.
