There are two types of procedures with PDO threads:
The first one (using Smooth threads) consists of creating a mesh under the skin (i.e. 2 sutures inserted vertically and 3 sutures horizontally). Sort of like a #hastag, or a net. This mesh will serve as the foundation for our new collagen production. This technique tightens the skin naturally from within, Results appear naturally, without any drastic change!
The other technique (using barbed threads) is utilized to produce a more dramatic and immediate result. The PDO sutures have "barbs" , which provide a grip underneath the skin. Sutures are inserted the same way, except they can be pulled in 1 or 2 directions, creating an instant skin re positioning. Just like with the Smooth threads, the skin will then build new collagen which will secure the lift!
