PDO Threads

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, this treatment may be suitable. There are no cuts or incisions, just injections.


How does it work?

Polydioxanone aka PDO threads are a special medical grade thread that is thinner than hair, made of protein. Research has confirmed that PDO threads relax 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, both substances are key to maintaining firm, youthful looking skin.


What happens during your PDO Thread treatment?

Lidocaine injections are 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. The treatment 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 threads?

This is a very versatile treatment which can be used in any part of the face and neck as well as several areas on the body.


What results can I expect from my PDO Thread lift?

Thread lift treatments result in an instant 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 produces collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. 

PDO Threads are available on finance for as little as £19 per month
