What is it?
PDO threads are medical-grade sutures that are inserted into the tissues of the face to lift and reposition facial contours. The treatment lifts and tightens the cheeks, nasolabial (nose to mouth) folds, marionette lines, jawline and neck.
The absorbable threads trigger collagen production within the skin. The threads dissolve and are metabolized over several weeks, leaving your skin with more strength and elasticity to maintain your results. Threads can be combined with filler if needed for more comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
When will I see results?
The lifting effects are visible immediately, but the full effect of collagen stimulation is evident about 3 months following treatment.
Does it hurt?
We use a local anaesthetic to ensure your comfort throughout.
Refrain from makeup application for 12 hours. Avoid vigorous exercise, aggressive chewing, and extreme temperatures for 3 days after treatment. Bruising can last up to 10 days, so allow plenty of time before an event where you want to look your best.
Most patients can return to work the same or next day.
