What are PDO smoothing Threads?

At The Facial Aesthetics Center at Westlake Family Dental Care, a PDO smoothing threads procedure is a minimally invasive treatment that boosts collagen production, firms and tightens skin, reduces lines and wrinkles, improves texture, and rejuvenates the skin's overall appearance. A PDO smooth thread treatment is often a good choice for those who may be hesitant to have a surgical procedure even though they desire to reduce signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, folds, loose, sagging skin, and a generally dull-looking complexion. Dr. Jennifer Psota Dougherty uses the advanced FDA-cleared V Soft Lift™ Smooth line of PDO collagen threads (also known as polydioxanone threads), which are medical-grade sutures guided through the epidermis to stimulate collagen formation to rejuvenate, smooth, and tighten the skin of the face. Often dubbed a "lunchtime facelift," this procedure doesn't need an extensive recovery time and can achieve dramatic results.
