WHAT ARE PDO THREADS?
PDO Threads are a special medical grade thread that is thinner than hair and made of protein. Research has confirmed that PDO relaxes tendons and muscles, whilst a foreign body reaction improves the blood flow to the area stimulating neocollagenesis (the production of new collagen in the skin).
WHAT DOES IT TREAT?
This is a versatile treatment which can be used in any part of the face and neck to treat sagging brows, nasolabial lines, vertical and horizontal forehead wrinkle, drooping cheeks, marionette lines, sagging jawline, plus wrinkles and folds on the chin and neck.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes, they are safe. PDO Threads have over a decade long safe track record in surgery and wound closure.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
Thread-lift treatments result in an instant and natural looking improvement in the appearance of the skin. A process of natural protein synthesis then begins after about 10-14 days. Over the subsequent weeks results will continue to improve, peaking at around 6 months and lasting for up to 2 years as your own body produce collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Making this form of non surgical facelift a very long lasting treatment. The thread itself is completely biodegradable and dissolves within 12 weeks, after which new collagen has formed around the thread to continue to support results, maintaining a smooth and supple texture of the skin.
