Have you been looking for a procedure to help you look younger, but you do not want to go under the knife? Then you may be the ideal candidate for a PDO thread. This type of thread is great at helping you look younger but does not require a scalpel. The thread we use dissolves slowly on its own, but while it dissolves, it triggers your body to create new collagen to keep the look longer. The benefits of these procedures are vast. Let’s take a peek!
What Is a PDO Thread?
Many people are familiar with thread lifts. This is when we take a thread of dissolving material and use it to anchor a lift to one or more areas of skin, often on the face. So, what makes a PDO thread different? It is in the thread itself. PDO stands for polydioxanone, and it is the material the thread is made from. In this case, it is a type of polyester. During the procedure, we use the PDO thread and use it to lift up problem areas, suturing it in place when the desired effect has been reached. Over the next 6 months, the thread dissolves, leaving a collagen-rich area of skin behind.
The procedure is quick, taking less than an hour. The downtime is minimal, and your results last from 6-18 months, depending on how much collagen your body produces. You can look naturally younger in very little time, and feel great for a long time. PDO threads have been used for over 40 years very successfully, and they can help you look and feel amazing, too!

There are so many minimally or non-invasive beauty therapies available today for the first time. Long gone are the days of anything short of surgery having a noticeable and lasting effect. With some of these treatments you can even target specific parts of the body for improvement.
Perhaps you want something to firm up loose skin around your neck or chin. Some folks may be interested in getting rid of cellulite in a problem area. Still, others may be looking for something to brighten their skin tone and make it look and feel more youthful. Here are a few examples of some of the many exciting options available in this field:
For those who were interested in a more vibrant and youthful appearance, the BB Glow just might do the trick. It is a micro-needling treatment which smoothes out wrinkles and minimizes the appearance of pores. Additionally, the hyaluronic acid helps to give the skin a more plump texture and radiant glow. The effects of these therapies tend to last several months.
People seek out body treatments many times for things that dieting and exercise don’t seem to help with. This includes small but stubborn amounts of weight such as 5 or 10 pounds. Love handles, muffin tops, upper arm cellulite, as well as thighs and buttocks are all common problem areas. Hair removal is another example.
Therapies like Liposonix use heat to melt cellulite away. Radiofrequency therapy can reshape fat more evenly across an area of your body. UC treatments melt fat down into a liquid which exits the body in the same way as all other liquids. Each of these is non-surgical.
Various Other Wellness Therapies
There are several other treatments that Body by Mia may be able to offer you, depending on what it is that you are looking for. Mesotherapy can help with everything from fat removal to facials to re-growing hair.

There have been some incredible advancements in the field of cosmetic medicine in the last several years. Beauty and anti-aging treatments are offering better results and lasting longer. One of the most amazing procedures has to do with fat loss.
Mesotherapy injections can provide quick and dramatic improvements in weight and body shape in a short amount of time. It can also be a part of a more significant overall transformation by developing a simple treatment regimen.
What Exactly Is Mesotherapy/LipoDissolve?
Mesotherapy uses FDA approved medications such as Phosphatidylcholine deoxycholate (PCDC) to dissolve fat and cellulite. These practices have been in effect in France and other parts of Europe for years and are just now becoming more popular here in the United States.
How Does It Work?
Initially invented in the early 1950s and used as a vascular disorder treatment, after that, it was discovered that with slight variations, it could be used as a chronic pain medication, hair loss deterrent, and ever a few others. More recently, it has proven to be highly effective in fat removal.
The procedure is straightforward; multiple tiny micro-injections are performed in the target area. The medicine then hardens the fat cells in the body, causing them to break and shatter. From there, they are removed from the body through its natural processes.
What Are Some of the Areas It Works On?
Mesotherapy can be effective on several different parts of your body. One of the great things about this treatment is the fact that the most common problem areas can usually be addressed. Here are just a few of them:
- Love handles
- Upper arms
- Double chin
- Lower and upper abs

We will gladly address all inquiries, as well as to help you get set up for an appointment if it’s something that you decide to do. One call could be the start of you loving your body even more.

You can also improve your skin’s elasticity by working on your daily skin routine. Be sure you are using sunscreen, moisturizing, and drinking plenty of water. These tips are great for skin health and can end up decreasing the appearance of cellulite as your skin becomes healthier.
