The PDO threads we use at Glow Aesthetic Center are made of the same material as surgical sutures that have been used in cardiac surgeries for decades. The threads work using a process called “controlled healing,” which stimulates the growth of collagen around the threads before they eventually dissolve into your body.
The most abundant protein in your body, collagen is largely responsible for giving your organs, tissues, skin, and bones their distinctive structures. It’s the “glue” that holds everything together. By building more collagen, your skin regains its tight, smooth look that you’ve been searching for.

Why Collagen Is so Important
Building collagen is the crucial element of a PDO thread treatment. The threads themselves cause minor damage to your tissue, triggering the production of more collagen in the area, centered on the threads that slowly dissolve.
Why is collagen so important? It’s the protein that gives your skin its structure. In fact, Healthline reports that collagen supplements administered to women in a 2019 study showed marked improvement in skin elasticity and the minimization of wrinkles and sags.
PDO Threads Build Collagen Naturally
There are many beauty options available to the modern individual. However, many either require invasive surgery or rely on synthetic materials. While PDO threads are made of synthetic material, this dissolves within a few months, leaving you with natural, homegrown collagen that makes your skin look great.
Other benefits of PDO threads include:
- Lack of significant downtime
- Minimal risk compared to facelift surgery
- Results last longer, up to a full year
Before and After Your PDO Thread Treatment
When you first visit Glow Aesthetic Center, our team will meet with you to discuss your specific health and beauty goals. We craft a unique treatment plan to help you achieve the look you want. Then, we’ll schedule your actual treatment date.
Before coming in for your PDO threat procedure, make sure to avoid blood-thinning medications and supplements for at least a week. This helps reduce the chance of swelling and bruising.
Afterward, make sure to avoid:
- Eating tough or strenuous foods
- Engaging in serious physical exertion within 72 hours
- Getting a facial massage until the treatment area properly heals
