As we age, our bodies gradually produce less collagen. By the age of 70, you will have about 80% reduction in skin thickness. This loss of volume, thickness and strength leads to excess skin, and wrinkles. The function of collagen is to keep our skin smooth supple and stronger, in order for our skin to support the tissue beneath.
PDO threads provoke the body’s healing response, causing the production of new collagen in the area of treatment. This healing response also create cellular renewal and neovascularisation (new blood vessels to carry important oxygen and nutrients to the skin cells) resulting in improved skin texture, fine lines and elasticity.
