What are PDO Threads?
PDO thread lifts make use of the latest technologies in cosmetic contouring, offering a non-invasive answer to tired, ageing skin without surgical intervention. By stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin beneath the surface of the skin, PDO thread lifts offer an immediate boost in plumpness and uplift, whilst reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
How Does it Work?
PDO (Polydioxanone) threads are used to lift any part of the face, including the forehead, cheeks, jowls, jawline and neck. They have collagen stimulating properties and are re-absorbed by the body over time leaving tighter skin. It is an answer to tired looking ageing skin, without having to go through a surgical procedure. There are different types of threads that work well in different areas, and naturally you will have lots of questions which we can answer during your consultation
How Long Will it Last?
You can expect to see an immediate lift to the treated area. The results continue to improve as your skin produces collagen and elastin. The results of the treatment last about 18 months.
Does it Hurt?
Topical and local anaesthetic is administered so the treatment should not be painful
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Jawlines, drooping cheek areas and heavy eyebrows. Thread lifts also offer an answer to the signs of ageing by improving the skins tautness and glow.
During & After Treatment
The treatment takes 60-90 minutes and starts with topical and local anaesthetic being administered to the area.

We will give you a full list of do’s and don’ts & after care advice, but if you are concerned about anything, please call us. Results are immediate and continue to improve over time.
