PDO Threads

PDO (Polydioxanone) thread lifts represent a revolutionary approach to non-surgical facial and body rejuvenation. At our clinic, we specialise in this cutting-edge technique, dedicated to helping you achieve a refreshed, lifted, and natural-looking appearance.

Our skilled and experienced practitioner employ PDO threads, which are biocompatible, absorbable sutures, to lift and tighten sagging skin. This minimally invasive procedure stimulates collagen production, leading to long-lasting results without the need for surgery.

What is a Polydioxanone (PDO) Thread Lift?

A Thread Lift is a procedure that uses a dissolvable suture to tighten and lift your skin. These are injectable threads which are used to lift any part of the face, jawline or neck. It’s a less invasive procedure without needing to go under a scalpel.

Polydioxanone (PDO) thread lifts use a biodegradable polyester suture. They’re best suited for rejuvenating your skin while some newer types of thread lifts are better at lifting sagging skin. They have collagen stimulation properties and are reabsorb able. This means they absorb over time leaving behind recovered tighter tissue that maintains your results.

PDO threads can be further divided into three categories:

PDO Mono Threads. Smooth sutures that help rejuvenate your skin by stimulating collagen production.
PDO Cog Threads. These threads have barbs that latch into your skin like small fishhooks, to provide support and lift parts of your face.
PDO Screw Threads. Made up of one or two intertwined threads, these are used to help restore volume to sunken parts of your skin.
Thread lift repositions and supports sagging skin caused by ageing using PDO threads. During the treatment, we insert absorbable threads into the deeper layer of your skin the thread is made of a biodegradable polymer, it is slowly absorbed by your body over time. Normally 6 weeks in that time it has naturally stimulated collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid to provide a long-lasting, more lifted and youthful appearance.

Long Term Results

In addition to instantly lifting the skin, the component within the dissolvable threads also works to gradually stimulate new collagen production. This results in a plumper and more youthful complexion that lasts for approximately 12 months.

REDUCED WRINKLES AND FINE LINES

Threads work to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles because they stimulate new collagen production.

TIGHTER LOOKING SKIN

Again, because they stimulate new collagen, threads will naturally tighten your skin, helping to reduce any facial sagging

Frequently Asked  Questions

What are PDO threads?

PDO threads are a type of minimally invasive cosmetic procedure involving the use of dissolvable threads made from Polydioxanone. These threads are inserted under the skin to lift, tighten, and rejuvenate different areas of the face and body.

PDO threads work by mechanically lifting and stimulating the production of collagen in the treated area. As the threads dissolve, they leave behind a network of collagen fibers that provide structural support and improve skin firmness.

PDO threads can be used on various areas, including the face (for non-surgical facelifts and rejuvenation), neck, décolletage, arms, thighs, buttocks, and even the abdomen.

PDO thread insertion is typically performed under local anaesthesia, so you should not feel any pain during the procedure. Patients may experience some discomfort or mild swelling after the treatment, which usually subsides within a few days.

The duration of results can vary depending on the individual, the type of threads used, and the treatment area. On average, results may last from 6 months to 2 years. Multiple sessions and periodic maintenance may be required to sustain the effects.

Common side effects may include temporary swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort at the treatment site. Complications are rare but can include infection, asymmetry, or thread migration. It’s essential to have the procedure performed by a qualified and experienced practitioner to minimise risks.

PDO thread treatments are generally suitable for individuals looking to address sagging skin, wrinkles, and loss of facial or body volume. A consultation with a medical professional is essential to determine if you are a good candidate based on your specific concerns and medical history.

PDO threads can be used in conjunction with other non-surgical procedures like dermal fillers, Botox, and laser therapies to achieve more comprehensive aesthetic results. The combination of treatments is often referred to as a “thread lift.”

Most patients can resume their regular activities shortly after the treatment. However, it’s advised to avoid strenuous exercise and facial massages for a few weeks to reduce the risk of complications.

The cost of PDO thread treatment can vary widely depending on factors such as the number of threads used, the treatment area, and the geographic location of the clinic. It’s best to consult with a provider for a personalised cost estimate.
