What is a PDO Thread Lift?

A PDO Thread Lift is a non-surgical facelift with Polydioxanone (PDO) threads, suitable if you have loose skin around your mid to lower face and are looking for a tighter and fresher appearance.


The PDO treatment otherwise known as “the lunch time facelift” is a safe and effective alternative to surgical procedures. Results can be seen immediately and last on average for around 18 months.
Dissolvable threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO) lifting loose skin and improving it’s texture. Unlike a surgical face lift there is no cut or incisions, just small injections.


What do PDO Threads do and How does it Work?
PDO threads can be used to contour the face, treat wrinkles, improve skin qaulity, tighten the loose skin promoting a youthful appearance.
Common areas to be treated with PDO threads are:
• Mid and lower facelift
• Forehead and brow
• Jawline and jowl tightening


Research into PDO has found that the procedure induces a foreign body reaction to produce new collagen. The purpose of the procedure is to stimulate your bodies own collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, causing immediate lifting and tightening of the area.


The PDO Thread Lift Treatment
A thread lift can tackle the tell-tale signs of ageing. Targeting everything from crow’s feet to naso-labial and marionette lines (which run from the nose and mouth and contribute to a frown-like appearance), PDO thread-lifts are also beneficial for treating jowls and a sagging neck.

The appointment will start with talking through your medical history and discussing your expectations from the treatment. To minimise any discomfort we use anaesthetic to numb the area.
The facial threads are then inserted into the area required The treatment itself will last from 30-60 minutes and some slight discomfort may befelt as with any procedure.
Result will be seen immediately but will continue to develop over 3-6 months following treatment.weeks following this. The appearance of your skin will improve in all round texture and tightness as fine lines are reduced.
As this is a more invasive procedure you are likely to experience some bruising and swelling which can last up to 2 weeks. We advise that you don’t undertake any contact sportsor other facial treatments for 4 weeks post-treatment and to be delicate with the area to help with healing. Full aftercare will be discussed at the appointment.
 
For up to 24 hours after, you should feel some sensitivity, with the results lasting two to three years. Improving gradually over three to six months, results will be visible immediately, too.


We would advise you to wash your face carefully and avoid face cream and make up for the first 48 hours. Also avoid hot drinks and hard foods for the first 1-3 weeks. To achieve optimal results sleep in an upright position to reduce swelling for the first 3-7 days, avoid strenuous exercise and do not consume alcohol or expose yourself to heat including sun beds or saunas for 7 days.
