Smooth threads are comprised of the same dissolvable suture material that has been used in internal stitches for many decades, so they have been proven to be very safe to use. These sutures have anti-inflammatory effects, but they are used in cosmetic treatments because of their proven ability to induce collagen production in the skin. Smooth threads are clinically proven to make skin more firm and fight wrinkles and improve the skin’s overall appearance. The sutures dissolve very naturally over a few months while stimulating new collagen as the skin heals itself.
Smooth threads are primarily used for collagen stimulation and do not generate a lifting effect. Barbed and molded threads are utilized when an individual is looking for lifting results.
PDO threads stimulate your body’s natural healing response by increasing collagen and elastin production. PDO threads, or sutures, are made of biocompatible materials that get safely reabsorbed by your body over time.
Treated areas may be slightly red, swollen, slightly irregular and bruised for the first 2-5 days. This will settle out. Patients may develop mild bruising and or sensitivity around the injection site. This will resolve within 7-10 days after treatment.

The benefits of smooth threads are the long-lasting skin enhancement results achieved with this treatment. However, patience is necessary when being treated with smooth threads, as results are gradual and noticeable after four weeks. The results then continue to improve for the life of the threads which is six months and lasts up to two years. Generally three treatments are recommended.
Any individual looking to boost their skin’s firmness and collagen content as a treatment or preventatively to slow the aging process is an ideal candidate for treatment with smooth PDO threads. However, when there is a significant amount of sagging skin, other modalities may be recommended as a combination treatment, whether with barbed threads or surgical modalities.
Smooth threads are excellent on their own or can be safely combined with other treatments such as neurotoxins, dermal fillers, lifting threads, other collagen stimulators and medical grade skin care.
