A Stronger Profile & Firmer, Younger Looking Skin With PDO thread lifts treatment


In our thread lifts treatment, the skin on our face is smooth and taut, with a smooth contour where the cheek meets the chin and strong definition at the jaw line. But as we age, collagen is lost, which makes the skin less elastic, and gravity will gradually start to pull the loose skin downwards, resulting in jowls appearing at the lower face. This will cause the skin around the cheeks to become thinner, making us look older.

Well, what options can we take to rectify this?

We can go for a facelift… this is going to be a painful and costly experience with a good deal of down time. You also have to think of the psychology with this option with having to undergo a general anesthetic.. is it worth the risk for something cosmetic?

We can use Dermal Fillers to add volume, create cheekbones and give the skin a gentle lift. This has always been a good option for people who don’t want a surgical procedure. Dermal fillers last up to one year depending on lifestyle… if you party hard, they might last a lot less. Dermal fillers can give instant results and you can return to work the next day with no one the wiser, just curious to know how you look so fresh and rejuvenated!

PDO threads

Another solution that can get great results, are PDO thread lifts treatment. The PDO thread lift treatment has a dual effect. Firstly, they give an immediate lift to sagging skin and secondly they stimulate the body’s own collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. The threads don’t need removing from the body as they are absorbable. They can either be used as a stand-alone treatment or used along with Botox and fillers to get a fantastic result.

The skin gets numbed with a local anesthetic and the threads are then injected under the skin in strategic places, forming a matrix of threads that will lift and rejuvenate the skin. Some threads are so fine they are like hairs, the stronger threads are thicker and have small barbs on them that will attach to the skin and give a good lifting result.

threads remain under the skin

The threads, which are the same as those used for many years in open heart surgery, gradually dissolve over the next few months. While the threads remain under the skin, they cause collagen to form by stimulating the fibroblasts and this will also improve skin tone and radiance.

The procedure is almost painless with little downtime. You might experience the odd bruise, but these can easily be covered with light make up.

PDO threads are ideal to treat;

  1. Forehead wrinkles
  2. Sagging eyebrows
  3. Lower eyelid – bags under the eyes
  4. Cheeks
  5. Naso-labial folds
  6. Marionette lines

So, with these options, it means that everything doesn’t have to go south – with just a little help, you can look the best you can.

What is PDO thread lifts treatment?

What is PDO?

PDO is basically a short abbreviation of polydioxanone which are absorbable synthetic sutures widely used in surgeries for wound closing and stitching, manufactured from polydioxanone.

The PDO threads are preloaded in fine needles which are inserted into subcutaneous skin layer for creating a lifting and tightening effect. The needles are then taken out and thread stays behind in the skin. When dozens of needles are inserted with threads into the skin, it activates the natural regeneration process of skin and stimulates the wound healing process along with tissue contraction.

Recent developments in the procedure

Recently, cog threads have been introduced in the treatment. It is a move from the use of monofilaments to the use of barbed threads. Due to this new invention, a higher chronic inflammatory reaction is induced which cause higher fibroblast conversion rate during the process of wound healing.
