PDO Thread Lift and Facial Regeneration
What are PDO Threads?
Threads are a new revolutionary non-invasive facial lift to the face without surgery.
As we get older the collagen and elastin levels in our skin reduce. As a result we lose the taught, contoured youthful look. Joel’s can develop, sagging of the neck and cheeks, drooped lids and loosening of the skin to the neck. PDO threads offer a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment option to regain a more youthful contoured, lifted look, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
The threads are very safe and have in fact been used in medicine for sutures (stitches) for over 30 years.
What areas can be treated with Threads?
- Lip enhancement
- Eye bags
- Smokers lines
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabials folds
- Double chin
- Brow lift
- Lower face and neck lift
- Facial Contouring
Threads involve the gentle insertion of polydioxanone (PDO) fibre threads just under the skin, similar to the ‘acupuncture’ technique .
The threads create a supportive mesh under the skin and give an immediate lift but also a progressive lift over time.
A topical anaesthetic is applied to numb the area to be treated. You will need to allow 45 minutes to 1 hour for the anaesthetic to take effect. The procedure itself will take 30-45 minutes depending on the areas to be treated.
How long will the results last?
The threads fully dissolve over the course of 6-8 months but during this time they stimulate the skin to produce the building blocks of youthful skin-collagen and elastin. Even after the threads have dissolved the effects last for months afterwards.
Results of treatment can typically last 18months to 2 years.
Is there any downtime?
After the treatment, as with any cosmetic treatment, you may experience mild swelling, redness or bruising. You will also be given a topical gel to use to soothe abd minimise bruising. There is minimal discomfort during the procedure. These Symptoms shouldn’t last more than 2-3 days. No special precautions are required before treatment however all thread treatments require an initial consultation to discuss the procedure.
