3. Face lift with PDO (Thread lifting)
PDO (Polydioxanone) is often used by surgeons to sew blood vessels to the heart. Using this type of thread to treat wrinkles and sagging under the skin is therefore not harmful or irritating to the skin. After the thread is inserted under the skin, it will stimulate the contraction of collagen fibers under the skin and cause immediate lifting of the skin. After that, it will gradually stimulate the production of collagen around itself, causing the effect of lifting and reducing wrinkles more clearly, after one month.
The advantages : The thread will dissolve within 6-8 months, making no residue, and the lifting effect remains for about 1 year.
