Post treatment care and advice

  • Please avoid sleeping on the treated area for 3 nights

  • When a bruise does appear, please apply arnica gel a few times a day (this can be purchased from any pharmacy)

  • You will be able to see some good effect as soon as you leave the clinic but it is important to keep in mind that it will take 2 weeks for collagen to start working. You will start to see even better effect after 4 weeks post treatment.

More information

PDO Thread lift is a safe, non-surgical alternative to having a surgical face or neck lift. Threads are implanted into the sub-dermal skin and stimulate the production of collagen and the skin becomes firmer, elastic and moisturised. The thread dissolves itself in few months but the effect lasts longer than the regular dermal filler. As one ages, the underlying soft tissues of the face progressively lose their elasticity and volume. Thread lift is a non-invasive procedure, designed to raise the brows and cheeks, neck, jowls, and soften lines around the mouth and nose. This technique has been developed over recent years, offering patients results comparable to a traditional facelift.

What is a PDO Thread?

PDO (Polydioxanone) thread is a strong filament fibre, consisting of a few twisted solid fibre thread, which dissolves in the body tissue after a certain time (usually 6-8months) PDO material is used for more than 30 years in plastic surgery, gastroenterology, urology, gynaecology, ophthalmology for cutaneous and subcutaneous stitches.

Who is suitable for a PDO Thread Lift?

What does PDO Thread Lift procedure involve?

The 30-minute procedure is simple, safe and causes minimal discomfort and minimal downtime for patients in the doctor’s clinic. Numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area for additional comfort. After a small local anaesthetic, the doctor inserts the PDO threads under the skin to a depth of about three to five millimetres using needles of differing length and thickness, adapted to each treatment area, creating an immediate lifting effect. No cut is required. Once the threads are in place, the doctor performs slight compression of the tissue to reshape it by hand and to obtain the desired lifting effect. The non-inserted ends of the threads are cut off. The number of threads used will vary according to the needs of each patients. The PDO Threads can be used as a single treatment or combined with another procedure (vampire facelift, Dermal Filler, Botulinum toxin etc)
