Matrix PDO Thread System
Advanced framework for Skin Rejuvenation
Matrix Mono Threads have become another method of tightening and thickening your skin. Mono Threads differ from thread lifts which use long barbed threads to lift tissues, however they can still provide an improvement of fine lines and wrinkles by gradually stimulating natural collagen production.
Matrix Mono Threads are made from a material called Polydioxanone (PDO) which is an absorbable polymer that is flexible and durable.
Matrix PDO Threads induce production of collagen, creating a tightening effect for 6 to 12 months after your procedure. The threads become a support structure for your face, allowing natural collagen production to take place, over time the PDO will be fully absorbed by the body.
Matrix Mono Threads come in a variety of textures.
Matrix Mono Threads
Matrix Mono Threads are a type of single PDO filament. These threads are smooth and made without barbs which are minimally invasive. Matrix Mono Threads are inserted into the skin in a mess-like pattern to achieve maximum tightening effects.
After entering the skin, the threads activate collagen synthesis for a gradual skin tightening and skin rejuvenation effect. While Matrix Mono Threads tighten the skin, they do not significantly lift it.
These skin tightening treatments can be used to rejuvenate collagen treating neck sagginess forehead lines and facial wrinkles. The threads can also add volume to cheeks and an average of 10 to 30 Matrix Mono Threads is typically used for each treatment area.
