PDO Threads

Get back to your beauty by reversing the signs of ageing and embracing a more youthful you.

The secret stitch-up for a firmer, fuller look

PDO Threads not only tighten and firm the skin but also stimulate collagen production, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As the PDO Threads activate collagen synthesis, the skin gradually tightens and renews, delivering a fuller and tauter complexion. Made from absorbable suture materials, these threads work in two steps: an initial gentle tightening and a later smoothing effect as collagen naturally takes over.

What can I expect after?

Some temporary side effects, such as swelling and bruising can be expected around the treatment area. This usually resolves within a few days, but could take a couple weeks.

How long between treatments?

Results are seen in 8–12 weeks and can last up to 12 months. PDO Threads are a made from a dissolving suture material, which is reabsorbed into the body after approximately 3 months. Yet, the collagen stimulation achieved can continue to benefit the skin for up to 12 months. So, a yearly treatment regime would be ideal.

Does it hurt?

Prior to treatment, numbing cream is applied to the designated area. This ensures you feel minimal discomfort during your treatment. Some tenderness may be experienced during the first few hours following treatment.

FAQs

What are PDO Threads?

PDO Threads are made from a material called Polydioxanone which is an absorbable polymer that is flexible and durable. The Threads induce production of collagen, creating a tightening effect for upto 12 months after your procedure. The threads become a support structure for your face allowing natural collagen production to take place, over time the PDO thread will be fully absorbed by the body. Typically, around 50 PDO threads are used to treat each area.

What areas can you treat?

What areas of the face neck and body are these threads suitable for? Upper and lower cheeks
Neck and jaw line
Jowls
Marionette lines

How long does it take?

One of the most incredible benefits is that treatment takes only 30 to 60 minutes. Expected treatment time varies on a case-to-case basis, but most of our clients are treated in under 30 minutes. After that, you are free to go back to your daily routine. Unlike a traditional facelift, there is no downtime or recovery associated with this treatment. Please allow 20 minutes before procedure for topical anesthetic to be applied.

What are the side effects?

PDO thread lifts have a much lower risk of complications than facelift surgeries. There’s less risk of scarring, severe bruising, or bleeding when performed by a trained professional. Minor complications are usually easily corrected. Potential complications include: visible sutures (especially in people with thin skin), pain or minor bruising, infection, snapping of threads inflammation, dimpling (orange peel-like skin texture), salivary gland injury.

How many treatments will I need?

Results from a PDO Thread treatment are most noticeable after 8-12 weeks and last up to 12 months.
