Safe raw material PDO
PDO (polydioxanone) is a biodegradable polymer that has been used as a surgical suture. It naturally dissolves and absorbs in the human body and promotes skin elasticity by stimulating collagen synthesis.

PDO is a safe raw material that is nonantigenic and fully dissolved within 6 months of the procedure.
