PDO THREAD LIFTS
This is an excellent and effective non-surgical technique to lift and tighten skin. PDO COG threads re-define facial contours and induces collagen production.
The barbed threads improve facial appearance by immediately lifting & tightening. They then encourage the production of new collagen in the skin to add volume a rejuvenate skin.
Understanding PDO Thread Lifts
What are the threads made of?
Polydioxanone — a clinically proven material already used in surgical sutures. It’s the preferred choice of material for a thread face lift as it naturally and safely breaks down and dissolves in the body
How does a non surgical facelift work?
The insertion of the PDO threads triggers the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, which lasts for up to 2-3 years. The threads themselves dissolve over six months as new fibrous connective tissue grows around them.
Do the threads need to be removed at a later date?
No, the threads will gradually dissolve in the body over six months, which actually helps stimulate collagen production. The threads work to return some of the skin’s elasticity, resulting in a reduction in sagging, lines, and wrinkles.
Will I be able to see the threads?
The threads are clear and cannot be seen once they are inserted under the skin.
What happens during the procedure?
Local anaesthetic will be applied to the treated area, so you will be comfortable throughout your face thread lift. Your doctor will then use a cannula or a micro-needle to insert the PDO threads into the deeper layer of your skin. You will be able to return to your usual activities within a couple of days.
When will I see results?
You will notice an immediate improvement right after your threading face lift. Optimal results will begin show over 2-6 months as collagen production is stimulated. The threads will dissolve over six months, but the results will be maintained for much longer.
What are the side-effects?
A thread facelift is a very safe treatment and complications are rare. There is a small risk of swelling, infection, bruising, numbness and slight asymmetry. If you experience any side-effects, they should pass within a few days.
Your doctor will explain the side-effects and risks in full prior to your procedure.
