How Does Nose Thread Lift Work?
Nose thread lift is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical procedure that uses dissolvable threads made from polydioxanone (PDO) to lift and reshape the nose. PDO is a biodegradable suture material that is commonly used in surgical sutures. The threads are inserted through small incisions in the nose and then used to lift and define the shape of the nose.
The threads used in nose thread lift are absorbable, which means they are designed to dissolve over time, leaving no foreign material in the body. This makes the procedure safe and minimizes the risk of complications. PDO threads come in both smooth and barbed varieties, with barbed threads providing more lift and support.

The results are achieved by stimulating collagen production in the dermis, which can improve skin quality and reduce age-related volume loss and bone resorption.
