“Thread Lifting” at VITALAGE utilizes Polydioxanone (PDO) or Polycaprolactone (PCL) threads. Both are surgical suturing material which have been used over decades. PDO or PCL is a biocompatible and degradable. They are FDA approved and generally break down inside the body in about 6-9 months. These cog/ barbed threads used for cosmetic purposes helps provide a physical ‘scaffolding’ to support sagging skin, induce collagen proliferation, improve skin quality and facial contour.
