Who is a good candidate for PDO Threads?

Which areas are most effectively treated with the PDO Threads?

For the face, these would be lifting of the eye brows, naso-labial folds, marionette lines, cheeks, jaw line and double chins. For the body, good results are achieved with tightening of loose skin on the arms, thighs and abdomen.

What are the PDO Threads made of?

These threads are 100% Polydioxanone which is a clinically proven bio-compatible and bio-absorbable material that is already widely used in medical suturing.

Can PDO Threads be used alongside other aesthetic procedures?

PDO Thread Therapy can be used alone or can be combined with other treatments to deliver optimal results eg: Fillers, Anti-wrinkle injections, Sculptra, PRP, Microneedling, Peels, Radiofrequency and Fractional laser treatments.

Who should perform the PDO Threads treatments?

Only trained professionals who have attended a full training course are certified to perform this procedure.

When do you see results with the PDO Threads?

There is an immediate improvement seen after treatments with a visible lift in the areas treated. This will improve over a period of 2-6 months as new collagen grows between the threads and gives further lift and tightening to the skin. The PDO threads gradually dissolve over about 6 months, but the resulting lift remains.

How long do the results usually last for?

This varies depending on the patient’s age at the time of treatment, the quality of the skin, degree of sagging and the number of threads used. However, studies have shown that results can last between 2-3 years based on lifestyle.

Are there any side effects with the PDO Threads?

PDO Thread lifting is a very safe procedure and complications are extremely rare. Minor complications may include temporary swelling and bruising. Patients may feel slight tightness or a pulling sensation following the treatment but this subsides over a few weeks.

How expensive are PDO Thread treatments?

Prices start at around £600 for eyebrow lifting and then increase depending on the number of areas treated. 



Skin rejuvenation from the natural wound healing process PDO Thread therapy originated from the traditional thread-lift philosophy in western medicine as well as “threads-embedding therapy” in oriental acupuncture therapy to control and improve tissue stimulation and muscle contraction. The product used for PDO Thread Therapy is a fine needle (21G-30G) affixed to the absorbable thread (thickness of 0.05mm- 0.40mm and length of 25mm-140mm). The needle is inserted into the subcutaneous layer of the skin, and when it is taken out, the threads remain implanted in the skin. Insertion of dozens of needles to the deeper layer of skin with absorbable threads activates their natural regenerative process and mechanical stimulation of wound healing and tissue contraction. 


Mono, Screw and Cog Threads

The most recent development in thread lifting has been the introduction of cog threads. A move away from the traditional monofilaments to barbed threads, this new shape induces higher chronic inflammatory reaction causing a higher rate of fibroblast conversion during the wound healing process.

As a result, clients achieve a longer lasting and more visible effect after a single treatment.

The threads are 100% PDO (Polydioxanone), a clinically proven biocompatible material that is already widely used in medical suturing. fore
