Have you heard about PDO (mono threads)? Also known as skin threading…..but not sure what it is, or what it is all about? Over the last few years, skin threading has risen in popularity as a cosmetic treatment for those seeking a non-surgical option to lift and tighten their skin. This procedure, also known as mono threading, involves inserting tiny, dissolvable threads into the skin to stimulate collagen production and promote firmer, more youthful-looking skin.

Skin threading involves the use of a fine needle to insert PDO threads into the skin.

It also has a lower risk of complications compared to surgical procedures, such as a facelift. Skin threading is an excellent option for those who are looking for a non-surgical option to improve their appearance and achieve a more youthful, lifted look.
