PDO Threads are very small strands that are made of an absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) material that tightens and lifts the skin and the skin’s soft tissues. PDO threads are medical grade and made of protein. The threads, which are either smooth, twisted, or barbed depending on the areas being treated. They are inserted into the surface subcutaneous layer of the skin through a cannula (and blunt hollow needle). When the needle is drawn back out of the skin, the thread stays behind.

PDO Threads FAQs
Both PDO thread lifts and Silhouette Soft thread lifts lift the skin. However, the distinctions between the two thread treatments are important. PDO thread lifts are far more effective due to the nature of the treatment. Silhouette Soft thread lifts produce a volumizing effect by compressing the skin tissue.
Moreover, PDO thread lifts are made of polydioxanone and use barbs to lift the skin. Contrastingly, Silhouette Soft threads are made up of PLLA threads and use cones to lift sagging skin.
Finally, because PDO threads are gentler on the skin, more threads are used during treatment than a Silhouette Soft thread lift. Thus, the skin is lifted higher and more comfortably.
