PDO Threads

PDO Threads

PDO Threads are a safe and simple way to lift and contour the face or parts of the body that show signs of ageing in terms of wrinkles or sagging skin.  PDO Threads are essentially the same material used in medical stitches, polydioxanone (PDO), which has been used in medicine safely for decades. 

Called “the Lunch Hour Lift”, PDO Threads offer a minimally invasive non-surgical treatment to dramatically improve support for the skin therefore improving contours of the face and body without the risk and trauma of surgical lifting. 

Once the Threads are inserted under the skin your body naturally starts to produce bundles of collagen around each thread, this creates a lifting effect over time.  The threads dissolve after 4-6 months however the new collagen scaffold gives support to the skin, so a natural and rejuvenated appearance is enjoyed for 2 years or more.

PDO Threads

Here at the Mayfair Practice we use superior brands of PDO Threads: First Lift LFL, Dr K and Mesotrax from Vida.  We use a combination of these Threads depending on your individual needs and the face or body area being treated.

The treatment itself involves a few injections of Lidocaine to numb the area for your comfort.  A series of tiny entry points are made with a needle so that the PDO Threads can be carefully placed in patterned formations under the skin to achieve the desired lifting and supporting effect.  The needles that house the Threads are then removed, the thread is gently lifted and the excess is snipped away leaving no signs of its presence under the skin.

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

After the procedure it is essential that certain activities be avoided for the first 3 weeks, including harsh washing, drying or massage of the treatment area.  Contact sports and strenuous activity should also be avoided for this period.  If the face has been treated then excessive facial movements should also be minimised in this time.

Although there are some immediate results, the full results will develop as the collagen builds over the next 5 to 6 months, with results lasting 1-3 years.
