PDO Therapy is an effective cosmetic technique that lifts and tightens sagging skin tissue by inducing collagen production which helps to counteract the forces of gravity and signs of ageing by lifting and suspending facial soft tissue.
A thread lift is minimally invasive, you get the effects of a face lift without needing surgery; the treatment can be carried out in the comfort of your own home.
The lift involves putting fine, absorbable polydioxanone threads (similar to those used in medical suturing) into the subcutaneous layer of the skin using very small needles. These threads remain in the skin and cause micro-injuries that stimulate collagen synthesis and tissue contraction.
After six months, the threads will be absorbed into the body leaving new collagen in their place. The lifting effect is at its peak after 6 months when collagen has formed around the threads and usually lasts between 2-3 years.
The procedure is usually carried out using a local anaesthetic and takes between 45 to 60 minutes depending on the treatment area.
Side effects are minimal, there may be some minor swelling or bruising for 2-3 days after treatment.
Our PDO Thread Lift treatments are available in the comfort of your own home.
