Reduces fine lines and tightens, defines and lifts the jawline.
With a rejuvenating and lifting effect, PDO thread lifts reduce fine lines, stimulate skin tightening, provide facial contouring and tighten, define and lift the jawline, to provide a supportive structure.
In this non-surgical, CQC registered procedure, a tiny needle is used to create the insertion point through which the threads are inserted. Once inserted, the threads act by stimulating the production of collagen fibres (the protein that gives our skin its youthful appearance). These form around the threads and remain in place once the threads have dissolved. Results are visible immediately.
Different lengths and thicknesses of threads can be used, depending on your desired result, skin condition and the amount of ‘lift’ required. Each thread is fully biodegradable, dissolving over a 6-8 month period, therefore the treatment can be topped up annually with 1-2 threads to maintain optimum results.
Every appointment includes a full consultation, even if you are a returning patient. This is to discuss the treatment and any concerns, as well as to go through the plan of care and complete and sign the consent form.
The procedure can either be completed after the consultation, or at a later date. All consultations are free of charge and there is no obligation to go ahead with the treatment on the day.
An injection of local anaesthetic is given prior to treatment to numb the area.
Moderate discomfort and tightness may be experienced for 3-4 days post treatment, with the skin loosening slightly as the skin heals after swelling has gone down.
