PDO Max has introduced its latest polydioxanone (PDO) threads, PDO Max Duo, for deep plane thread lifts to the temporal fascia. The double-needle threads help providers tether and capture the fascia to use it as an anchor for the thread in multiple directions.
The technology brings together PDO Max's exclusive, FDA-approved PDO threads, which are composed of a biodegradable polymer, with two needles attached at opposite ends of the thread. Two straight needles are used to insert the thread in different directions depending on the desired outcome. PDO naturally dissolves and is absorbed by the body in about 6-12 months. As it dissolves, it aids in the production of collagen.
The PDO threads come in both laser-cut and molded. PDO Max offers training videos on the Duo needle along with various other types of PDO threads for the face and body in an on-demand training portal. In-person and one-on-one training is also available to licensed medical providers.
Lisa Topham, RN, BSN, managing director of Split Rock Aesthetic Institute, said, "The precision and definition I can deliver to my patients' treatments with PDO Max Duo and PDO Max Duo Molded are unprecedented. I am excited about this advanced treatment, all with the peace of mind that comes from using FDA-approved PDO threads in dual needle form."
