Miracu Polydioxanone threads, better known as Miracu PDO threads, are super-fine, medical-grade sutures that have been approved by the FDA for use in a fairly new type of cosmetic surgery procedure called a 'thread lift'.
The PDO Thread Lift is an FDA approved, nonsurgical thread lift performed in office. Thread lift sutures are made from polydioxanone (PDO). They are absorbable, FDA-approved and are generally very safe.
Patients who choose the Thread lift can look forward to a lifted, rejuvenated appearance after the treatment. Although the main goal of the procedure is to lift sagging tissues, collagen production can help to reverse many different signs of aging. The thread lift can help to improve the overall youthfulness of the face, often softening folds in the skin and tightening the jaw line.
The results of the thread lift give most patients a boost in confidence and self-esteem. They look and feel younger, without the need for an invasive surgery. This treatment is extremely convenient for patients with busy lifestyles, as there is little to no downtime involves with the thread lift. Patients can resume their normal activities almost immediately, and only a local anesthetic is needed during the procedure.
The thread facelift does not produce the dramatic results of a traditional facelift surgery, but it can be a great option for patients who want more subtle results, do not want to undergo surgery, or would like to postpone the need for a surgical facelift.
