Structural lifting and skin tightening

PDO (polydiaxonone) threads has been used in surgical procedures as an absorbable suture material. They have been part of cataract surgical procedures since the 1980s. Several years ago when our Korean and European colleagues started developing aesthetic applications for PDO as early as 2005. PDO threads, correctly inserted in the tissues, result in a mechanical lift, which is maintained by the formation of collagen. So mini face and neck lifts can be completed in less than 30 minutes with superb results lasting two or more years for a fraction of the cost and risk of surgery.
