Treating flaccidity is one of the biggest challenges that the aesthetic doctor faces every day. For years, we have been using volumizing techniques, but more recently the application of polydioxanone (PDO) tension threads, also known as “magic threads” or “Japanese threads”, has been very successful.
The main characteristic of these new tension threads is that they are made of a resorbable product (PDO) that has already been used for several decades as a surgical suture material. This shows its great resistance and an indisputable safety profile.
Currently, we base most of our treatments on the combination of two types of PDO threads: plain threads have a biological effect of stimulating collagen, while spiculated threads have a more mechanical effect for overcoming flaccidity.
