PDO Thread Lifting

UKs Top Thread Lifting Clinic

As we age, our skin loses elastic tissue (elastin) which results in loose skin around the mouth, jowl, cheek and neck area. Thread face lifts are designed to help restore your youthful appearance by lifting and tightening the skin to reduce the visible signs of aging without the downtime of surgery.

Natural Looking Results

The great thing about a thread face lift procedure is that it offers quick recovery together with excellent but natural looking results. PDO Threads are a suture-like material that is used to correct sagging skin around the face and neck area. The threads are made from polydioxanone (PDO) – the same material used for medical stitches – which dissolve naturally in the body over time. Once the threads are in place, your body starts to produce new bundles of collagen around each thread and this, in turn, creates a subtle yet effective face lift.

How It Works

A tiny entry will be made then fine threads are advanced along pre-marked contours. The cannula is inserted into the skin and when taken out, the thread remains in the tissue.

There is no scarring and recovery times are a lot less than those associated with traditional surgery.

To achieve the best results with the Thread-Lift we often use a combination treatment with Dermal Fillers. The Thread-Lift treatment repositions sagging skin, providing definition and contouring and the Dermal Fillers replace the lost volume smoothing the surface lines and wrinkles.
