Short PDO (Polydioxanone) threads are a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment designed to improve the appearance of the skin. These threads, made of biocompatible material, are inserted into the targeted areas of the face or body using fine needles. Once inserted, the threads provide support and lift to the tissues, stimulating collagen production and resulting in a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance.

Short PDO threads are particularly effective in addressing concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and loss of facial volume. The treatment is relatively quick and typically requires little to no downtime, making it a popular choice for those seeking non-surgical facial rejuvenation.

Results are immediate and continue to improve over time as collagen production is stimulated. Short PDO threads offer a convenient and effective solution for achieving natural-looking facial rejuvenation with long-lasting results.
