Over time, some words and phrases lose their power through overuse. This is especially true of the cosmetics industry and TV or online commercials, boasting about “lustrous” hair or “proteins and vitamins” for “smooth” skin. Serums brighten, hydrate, or make the skin “bounce,” but in some cases at least, there’s science behind those words—science that marketing executives think the average consumer couldn’t care less about.
At PDO Max, we care about the science behind our leading-edge cosmetic products and expert training. We dedicate ourselves to conveying that science so that practitioners and patients can fully comprehend the benefits.
While PDO Max threads work wonders by lifting and supporting facial skin, our threads provide another benefit: a serious and lasting collagen boost.
What is Collagen?
Most of us understand that our bodies are made up of individual cells. But those cells are further composed of proteins which, by all accounts, serve as the building blocks of life. Just as you need protein to repair your muscles after a hard workout, every individual cell in your body needs protein to rebuild itself.
Collagen is one such structural protein that your body makes on its own, especially when you’re eating a balanced diet. In fact, collagen accounts for one-third of all the protein in your body, supporting and strengthening bones, tissues, muscles, and (most importantly for our purposes) skin.
So, how can a cosmetic device supercharge your body’s natural collagen production to reduce wrinkles, tighten skin, and contribute to a smooth, youthful complexion?
What Can Collagen Do For My Skin?
Speaking of cosmetic procedures and products, you’ve probably heard of microneedling and RF microneedling. The treatment option has taken off like a rocket in recent years thanks to its quick procedure times and excellent benefits.
Ultimately, microneedling works by tricking your skin into sensing damage. Once perceived, your skin responds by flooding the area with proteins (namely collagen) to repair that damage. When this localized flood of collagen finds no wounds to heal, it sets about instead in repairing and reinforcing the existing skin, going so far as to tighten, lift, and repair old scars.
In essence, the body is tricked into healing and supporting itself in a specific area. PDO Max threads achieve the same feat, but for a much longer period of time and with many more benefits.
How PDO Max Threads Boost Collagen Production
For starters, PDO stands for polydioxanone—a material already widely used in medical-grade sutures. As both a medical device and cosmetic implant, PDO succeeds because it’s widely accepted by the body without causing allergic or immunoreactions. What it does cause, however, is a small inflammatory response that works much like the microneedles that trick your skin into detecting “damage.”
Once inserted, your body reacts to dissolvable PDO threads as if they’re instances of damage, amplifying collagen production within the affected area for months and even years to come. After the PDO threads dissolve, your body continues to prioritize facial skin when distributing healthy, rejuvenating structural proteins.
What are the Benefits of Collagen?
Collagen is responsible for many of the most desirable skin qualities, but it also supports a standard of health and wellness. An increase in collagen has been known to create dozens of benefits, among them:
- Reduces/eliminates fine lines & wrinkles
- Tightens skin
- Promotes healing of new/old scars
- Promotes smoother complexion
- Improves skin texture
- Can reverse sun damage/hyperpigmentation
- Can shrink pores
- Can contribute to a “glow”
