PDO Threadlift

PDO-Threadlift-treatments

Non surgical thread face lift

PDO (Polydioxanone) threads or meso-threads offer the latest technology for soft, natural-looking thread lifting. The procedure is non-invasive and is designed for effective facial rejuvenation without surgery. In other words, it means less downtime and less complications. Unlike PLA threads, which use cones and ratchets to hook to the tissue, PDO is far less invasive and works by creating new collagen in a targeted area. PDO threads have no cones, thus no unwanted distortion to the tissue. It has an excellent safety record as it is the same material used in cardiac and surgical sutures.

PDO thread is ultra-fine and it is broken down naturally within the body. It is invisible within the skin and the result is therefore natural. The PDO Threadlift involves creating a mesh of PDO threads throughout the area to be treated in order to form a network of supporting fibres and new collagen. It mechanically induces skin tension into the deep layers of the subcutaneous tissue and therefore enables a tightening and lifting effect. A PDO threadlift increases metabolism and stimulates blood flow to the treated area, it triggers fibroblasts to produce more collagen, therefore restoring volume and improving the skin elasticity and texture. If the thread is inserted into the fatty tissue, natural lipoysis is stimulated and consequently the number of fat cells and their volume decreases.

A treatment takes between 45 and 60 minutes, with results expected to be seen in 3 weeks time, and around three months for the full effect to appear due to the time it takes to for natural collagen stimulation to occur. The PDO sutures are slowly resorbed over time with complete absorption after 200 days. The benefits of a PDO thread treatment is typically expected to last up to 2 years, depending on the individual.
