This treatment is aimed at preventing and treating skin ageing by activating the patient’s own collagen production. The increase collagen fibers give support to sagging skin resulting in the tightening effect. It acts like a surgical facelift by improving fine lines wrinkles, and nasolabial folds. It also improves your skin’s vitality and elasticity.
WHAT IS POLYDIOXANONE?
Polydioxanone is a synthetic absorbable monofilament. It has been used for so many years in orthopedic, plastic surgery, drug delivery, cardiovascular applications, and tissue engineering. It is non-antigenic and extremely soft and safe. It is degraded by the body and completely reabsorbed in 1-2 years.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
This treatment is aimed at preventing and treating skin aging by activating the patient’s own collagen production. The increase collagen fibers give support to sagging skin resulting in the tightening effect. It acts like a surgical facelift by improving fine lines, wrinkles, and nasolabial folds. It is also improves your skin’s vitality and elasticity.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Polydioxanone threads differ from other biostimulators (Botulinium toxin and Fillers) because they gradually induce a minimal foreign body reaction in the place where there are injected. Fibroblasts are activated, Epidermal Growth Factor is released, Collagen is synthesized and released, Angiogenesis ensues, and all these lead to re-epithelialization and regeneration. Also, collagen fibers along with the granulation tissue formed acts like a scaffold which supports the sagging tissue and tightens the skin.

HOW DOES THE PROCEDURE GO ABOUT?
The treatment is composed of a series of micro injections wherein therapy needles with Polydioxanone sutures are embedded into the skin. It has slight discomfort which is normally well tolerated. There is no downtime and patients can put make up or go about with their usual routine after the procedure.
WHO IS THE TREATMENT FOR?
This revitalization program is useful for all types of skin age and groups. In fact, this is both preventative and curative-useful in young people as prevention against the first signs of aging and for mature patients in reducing already aged skin.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
You will see a slight change right after the procedure but the real effect begins to show up after four to eight weeks, as the skin begins to react. It continues to improve over time and the maximal improvement is seen about eight to ten months.
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED?
One to three sessions is usually needed, depending on the patient’s skin. It is usually done at least one month apart.
HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?
The duration of benefits from this method varies according to the initial situation and to the patient’s lifestyle (sun exposure and smoking), but generally lasts 1-2 years.
CAN I HAVE OTHER TREATMENTS IF I HAVE THIS?
Yes! Biostimulation with Polydioxanone threads is compatible with Fillers, Botulinium toxin injections, Microneedling, and CO2 Lasers. But not done all at the same time in the same area. They can be done in the same procedure’s section but in different skin zones.
