PDO threading works by formation of a subdermal scaffold stimulating collagen synthesis and supporting and suspending soft tissues. Polydioxanone is the basic ingredient of these sutures, tested for their biocompatibility in surgery and fully absorbable in time.
Depending on the nature of the problem different types of threads are used alone or in combination like those equipped with barbs or cones in order to hold the tissue upwards against gravity.
