Rejuvenation and lifting using threads PDO
On the Polish market, aesthetic medicine through the company CROMA there was an absolute novelty – absorbable thread First Lift (Multi Picture Filaments) i>, yielding spectacular results. The application thread is practically non-invasive and painless, takes about half an hour, it leaves no scars or cuts, and minor redness disappear within a few days Additionally, it can be applied almost all over his body – so delicate and versatile threads yet it was not!
The PDO thread was created five years ago in South Korea and now is performed in many countries (Japan, USA, Brazil, Russia and Western Europe) The product has a medical CE safety certificate and is approved throughout the European Union.
The thread PDO – is placed in a sterile, very thin needle, with which we introduce it in certain skin around the face, neck, breasts, buttocks, abdomen and legs.

The effects are:
- Skin rejuvenation

PDO (polydioxanone) is a potent synthetic fiber, consisting of
from one (monofilament) or a twisted pair of permanent fiber
(polifilament), which over time dissolve in the tissue.
Polydioxanone is a material known and used in medicine for many years. Until now it was mainly used in the seams of the skin and subcutaneous plastic surgery, gastroenterology, urology, gynecology, ophthalmology.
This material meets all the requirements set by the US Pharmacopeia (USP) with respect to surgical sutures. Based on the clinical observations, it was found that the polydioxanone in the tissues stimulates a process neocolagenesis – that stimulates the production of new collagen – the protein responsible for the tension and firmness. In addition, stimulation of fibroblasts results in stimulating the synthesis of elastin – proteins responsible for firmness and elasticity. In vivo, it was also found that the effect of polydioxanone causes the synthesis of the natural (endogenous) of hyaluronic acid.
Thanks to this mechanism of action leather, in which we introduce the thread PDO becomes firmer, more supple and moisturized. The technique thread entering the PDO is based on the use of natural skin tension lines, which also causes an effect similar to a surgical facelift. Thanks to the strands of the PDO can also reduce the strength of mimic muscles of the face and achieve aesthetic effects similar to the administration of botulinum toxin – relaxation of muscles and smoothing facial features. The aesthetic effect is more natural than after injections of botulinum toxin, because not immobilize facial muscles and affects only the weakness of their actions.
Neocolagenesis process caused by the introduction of thread PDO presented in the following photos from an electron microscope:
By introducing thread PDO in the skin we get immediate improving its appearance. After about 10-14 days, the synthesis process starts with the body’s natural proteins (collagen and elastin). Tan process continues throughout the period of maintenance of the yarns in the body (240 days). The resulting aesthetic effects typically last up to 24 months.
Using the thread, to amplify on the sagging tissue. Due to the rapid rate of absorption of the thread, there is no risk of compaction and scarring, and in the case of fibers
The large diameter and strands of long-biodegradable (over a year).

The treatment usually lasts 30 – 60 minutes and is virtually painless. It starts with the imposition of local anesthetics (anesthetic cream).
Subsequently, the physician marks the points of entry needles and thread input lines beneath the skin.
the most effective skin tightening.
Immediately after treatment, the skin may be slightly reddened, they may also cause slight bruising or bruises. They usually disappear within a few days. The effects can be seen immediately, but keep in mind that due process neocolagenesis (formation of new collagen) starts after 10-14 days and really only then starting to show relevant effects of the treatment.
