PDO Threads – Non Surgical Face Lift
What are PDO Threads?
Thread lifting is a safe and effective non-surgical technique allowing any sagging skin to become tighter, redefining the facial contours.
The threads we use are PDO, which stands for Polydioxanone, which is a material that has been used in the medical industry for decades. They absorb by approximately six months and encourage the body to produce collagen, which may last up to two years.
There are different types of threads, which may be used to lift any part of the face including the forehead, cheeks, jowls and jawline. They can also be used to improve skin texture.
The results will be seen immediately when using the lifting threads and will improve after as the collagen is produced.
Most reactions are usually minimal and temporary with some swelling and bruising for a couple of days. The down time is generally minimal, but may be up to two weeks if bruising occurs.
Before your treatment any make up will be removed and the area to be treated, cleansed. We use topical and local anesthetics to keep discomfort to a minimum during the procedure. The treatment will last approximately 60 minutes, depending on the areas treated.
The threads will dissolve after approximately six months but will leave behind a matrix of collagen, which means the results will last up to 18 months.
After treatment we will advise you comprehensively of the ‘dos and don’ts’, however we would advised not to wear make up that day, cleanse gently not rubbing the area and avoid saunas and facials for two weeks.
We will review you after three weeks, but if you are at concerned please do not hesitate to contact us.
This treatment can give you the benefit of a facelift without the surgery- call us to book your free consultation to assess whether this is the treatment for you.
