Miracu PDO Threads are next generation FDA-cleared, absorbable surgical sutures called PDO Threads that provide more lifting strength & longevity then earlier generation threads. The Miracu PDO thread lift is a treatment involving the use of polydioxanone (PDO) surgical sutures that are inserted under the skin providing a smoothing and lifting effect in the face, neck, forehead and a number of other areas in the body that fillers alone cannot accomplish.
Miracu PDO Threads are inserted into the desired area providing the patient with an immediate skin lift. As the threads do not need to be removed as they dissolve naturally over several months, helping to produce new Collagen & Elastin in and around the treated area. This process maintains the lifted area and utilizes “controlled healing” as a way to increase overall benefits by activating the body’s selective inflammatory response. Controlled healing is a technique utilized by other procedures as well, such as fractional lasers, chemical peels and microneedling. The idea is that during this healing process, new collagen and elastin are created as the body responds to replenish and renew the area.
The Miracu, PDO Threads slowly break down over about 240 days. Thereafter, they are converted into water and carbon dioxide, and is fully absorbed without any residue, through a process known as hydrolysis.
PDO threads offer a non-surgical lift option with virtually no downtime and results that generally lasts 18-24 months. Most procedures take less than one hour! In most cases, Miracu PDO threads will be combined with fillers to help achieve proper volume.
