Thread Lifting

PDO Thread Lifting - 1

A PDO thread lift, sometimes called a thread face lift, or non-surgical face lift, is a quality treatment that strengthens and tightens the skin. The treatment uses fine, absorbable sutures to support the skin’s structures, stimulate collagen production, and create a smoother overall skin texture. This non-surgical skin treatment offers an excellent solution for visible signs of ageing such as lines and wrinkles. Due to the dissolvable nature of the PDO mono threads, patients can attain tighter, youthful skin with less downtime than other invasive approaches.

We offer high-quality Matrix PDO mono threads at Begone Skin & Body in order to help patients achieve their skin rejuvenation goals.

How a PDO thread lift works

A PDO thread lift is a procedure that uses a dissolvable suture to tighten and lift your skin. It’s a non-surgical option, which is becoming increasingly sought after, with lower risks and less recovery time. The treatment is a widely trusted approach, with long-lasting results that leave patients looking and feeling rejuvenated.

The threads are made of polydioxanone (PDO). When inserted into precise depths beneath the skin, the injected PDO mono threads trigger fibroblasts which are responsible for the production of collagen fibres. Due to this increased collagen production, the skin becomes firmer and stronger, leading to a tighter skin appearance and a reduction in wrinkles. We apply numbing cream prior to the treatment, and as a result, this procedure has very little discomfort.

Benefits of PDO mono threads

Lines and wrinkles occur due to the natural ageing process and slow depletion of collagen over time. Other factors such as sun exposure, smoking, and frequent exposure to toxins can also amplify signs of ageing. Non-surgical anti-ageing treatments such as PDO mono threads are a great way to minimise lines and wrinkles with natural results. By triggering your body to produce more collagen, the skin becomes tighter and stronger, with an overall smoother and lifted appearance.

Your consultation at Begone Skin & Body

At Begone Skin & Body, we ensure every patient gets personalised care and guidance in order to attain their desired outcomes. Since each person will have different aesthetic concerns and desires for treatment, it is important to speak to us about your options. We will develop a treatment plan for PDO thread lift treatment that helps you feel youthful and confident.

During your consult at Begone Skin & Body, we will discuss your desired treatment areas and what you hope to achieve from your PDO thread lift treatment. We will also speak about any medical conditions, allergies, and any current medications. Once we have assessed your health and risk factors and determined that you are suitable, we can begin planning your treatment. You may ask any questions or raise any concerns about your PDO thread lift procedure in order to feel comfortable and fully prepared.

What to Expect

We will advise the best way for you to prepare for your procedure. This can include avoiding smoking and alcohol along with substances that can increase your risk of bleeding such as Aspirin. After developing a treatment plan that works for you and your skin needs, we can proceed with your procedure.

A usual treatment requires between 50 to 150 individual PDO mono threads, depending on your chosen treatment area(s). Your clinician will apply a topical or local anaesthetic in order to make the process as comfortable and painless as possible. In-clinic treatments can take around 45 to 60 minutes.

The location of the Matrix PDO mono threads can vary based on the patient and what they are seeking to achieve from the procedure. We insert the threads in a cross hatching pattern, to create a “scaffold” for the collagen and elastin that will be produced as a result of your body’s own healing response triggered by the treatment. After treatment, the PDO mono threads result in gradual skin rejuvenation and, after around 12 weeks, form a matrix of collagen and elastin. After the sutures dissolve, what is left is stronger and tighter skin that is better supported.

There is bruising and some swelling post treatment but that is both expected and desirable. The trauma from insertion will assist in providing an even better result. You will need to minimise your facial movements in order to help your skin heal and avoid dislodging your PDO mono threads from their position. Additionally, during the healing process, we may advise that you:

  • Avoid hot saunas and baths
  • Avoid sun exposure and use a high SPF sunscreen
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Refrain from intensive exercise
  • Sleep on your back to avoid pressure to the face

Since a PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure, the risks associated are low. However, we will inform you of the risks prior to your treatment in order to ensure that you are fully aware. These risks can include pain, infection, scarring, and inflammation. In the case that you notice any worrisome side effects, please contact the clinic.
