If you’re frustrated with loose, sagging skin but don’t want to go through the pain and inconvenience of a traditional surgical facelift, PDO thread lifts provide a revolutionary solution that reduces wrinkles for less pain and less cost.
Using the very latest technology, PDO thread lifts is a non-invasive procedure that delivers an instant, soft and natural look. PDO threads act in a similar way to dermal filler but stimulate collagen production response via a thread rather than an injectable solution.
The procedure helps to reverse the effects of ageing such as wrinkles, saggy skin, deep creases, folds, and poor skin texture. It can lift and tighten the skin which ultimately improves your face profile, raises cheeks or eyebrows, helps to prevent eye bags and laughter lines, lift sagging neck skin, raise your smile and even tackle smokers lines.
PDO stands for polydioxanone – the biodegradable polyester suture used to make the insertable threads. PDO threads have been successfully used in surgical procedures since the 1980s and have shown they do not cause damage to skin tissue.
The revolutionary treatment enhances skin texture, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and gives you more elasticity in your skin. PDO threads are proven to noticeably reduce signs of ageing. The most commonly treated areas are around your cheeks, jaw, neck, and eyes but can also be used around the abdomen and in the arms.
The principle behind PDO thread lifting is not simply about pulling the skin into a different position, but rather stimulating the body’s natural reaction to a foreign body which is to reduce collagen and improve blood circulation. What’s more, the ultra-fine threads are naturally broken down in the body over 6 to 8 months. The material is transparent and shows no signs of visibility in the skin. There is also little or no risk of puffing when treating the lower parts of the face.
PDO thread lifts do not require surgery but should be performed by a trained professional with experience in administering non-surgical solutions.
Elizabeth is a qualified nurse with 22 years of clinical experience and received her training as an aesthetic practitioner from London’s prestigious Harley Street.
It takes up 30 minutes to an hour to complete the procedure.
It is similar to acupuncture, it’s not painful, but if you have sensitive skin a local anaesthetic can be used.
Elizabeth uses her vast experience as an aesthetic practitioner to gauge exactly where to apply the injections. Before administering the solution, the area is numbed with a medically-approved anaesthetic cream so the treatment is more comfortable.
The procedure also causes minimal disruption to your usual rhythm of life. After 2-3 days, you will be able to exercise, eat conventional foods, and use makeup. However, avoid sauna, gym, pool, and extreme facial treatments for several weeks.
As with any medical treatment, there might be some temporary swelling, redness or bruising, but those usually subside within a few days. Yet, PDO thread lifts have a much lower risk of complications than facelift surgeries.
There is minimal downtime required after treatment. We recommend taking a day off, but there’s nothing stopping you from turning to work immediately.
Results generally last between 12-18 months.
No, you don’t. The material breaks down naturally in the skin after 6 to 8 months.
Yes, PDO threads is completely safe. They have been used as an alternative to surgical facelifts for more than 30 years and have not caused any problems.
