The PDO Thread lift is a highly effective and non-invasive treatment for loose and sagging skin, providing results which were previously only achievable with cosmetic surgery. The procedure uses fully FDA approved, surgical sutures to tighten and rejuvenate sagging skin. Thread lifting can be used to treat a variety of different parts of the face including cheeks, jowls and eyebrows. It is especially effective in the lower part of the face, where it can greatly improve the appearance of the neck and jawline.
After a full consultation with one of our experienced and highly trained clinicians, the area to be treated will be numbed using a local anaesthetic to minimise any discomfort. A number of threads will then be inserted under your skin using small hollow needles When the needles are removed, the threads will stay in place, providing support and scaffolding to the area being treated. You will see results immediately and the appearance of the area will continue to improve for a number of weeks after the procedure as the threads stimulate natural production of collagen. These will be naturally and harmlessly absorbed by the body in approximately 6 – 9 months but because of the stimulation of collagen, results can last for up to two years.
Treatment lasts about one hour and you can return to your normal routine immediately afterwards. Because of the use of needles, there may be some slight bruising or swelling but pain or discomfort is minimal and can be easily managed with paracetamol or ibuprofen.
