What is a PDO Thread Lift?
Thread Lifts are a relatively new form of non-surgical face lift. If your face has loosening or sagging skin and you want a tighter, fresher, more youthful look, PDO Thread Lift may be suitable. There are no cuts or incisions - just injections.
How does PDO Thread Lift work?
Polydioxanone (PDO) Threads are a special medical grade thread that is thinner than hair, made of protein. Research has confirmed that PDO Thread Lift 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). It also stimulates elastin and hyaluronic acid.
What happens during treatment?
Lidocaine injection is applied to the entry points following which threads are introduced into the skin through a fine needle into either the skin itself, the muscle, or the subcutaneous fat. PDO Thread Lift results in an immediate improvement in appearance but the results will improve over ensuing days and weeks as the PDO stimulates neocollagenesis, increasing the amount of collagen in the skin. The appearance of the skin improves in terms of overall texture, becoming thicker, tighter and firmer as fine lines and wrinkles are reduced.
Which areas can be treated with PDO Thread Lift?
PDO Thread Lift is a very versatile treatment which can be used in any part of the face and neck to treat sagging brows, nasolabial lines, vertical and horizontal forehead wrinkles, drooping cheeks, marionette lines, sagging jawline, plus wrinkles and folds on the chin and neck.
