What is PDO Thread lift Treatment?

PDO therapy is a popular cosmetic procedure that stimulates collagen formation in order to lift and tighten sagging skin tissues. Small blunt tip needles are used to insert fine, absorbable polydioxanone threads into the skin’s subcutaneous layer.

Micro-injuries caused by threads that remain implanted in the skin promote collagen synthesis and tissue contraction. After six months, the threads will dissolve into the body, leaving new collagen in their place.

Mint PDO Thread Lifts and how they work

This non-invasive, non-surgical procedure encourages the body’s natural collagen and elastin production beneath the skin’s surface. The PDO Thread Lift is an excellent non-surgical alternative to a surgical facelift for tightening sagging skin and adding definition to the face because it has no recovery period and causes no discomfort.

Using a cannula or needle, PDO threads are placed under your skin. When the thread reaches its endpoint, it is released and the cannula is removed. To achieve the desired lift, the procedure may be repeated by the practitioner several times, resulting in the insertion of one to fifteen threads. To avoid any dimpling, the threads will then be gently massaged to smooth them out.

What areas can benefit PDO Thread Lift?

The cheeks, brow, jawline, neck, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, arms, thighs, and tummy can all benefit from PDO therapy. After 3 months, when collagen has developed around the threads, the lifting effect increases and lasts between 12-18 months.

The PDO (Polydioxanone) Thread Lift and Smoothing method stimulates collagen production in the skin’s subdermal layer by using absorbable surgical sutures. This technique can improve the firmness and elasticity of the skin in the treated area. Although the PDO Lift technique is beneficial in the majority of cases, there is no guarantee that it will benefit a specific patient.

Due to the nature of cosmetic procedures, a patient may require multiple sessions to achieve the desired results or to determine whether the treatment is completely effective in addressing the condition.


What Is PDO Thread Lift?

PDO thread lift is a revolutionary new therapy in the world of cosmetics, PDO threads have been successfully used for decades for a number of uses, including treating gynaecological issues and suturing incisions following medical procedures. When utilising it as an aesthetic therapy, there are a few factors to bear in mind.

For starters, it lifts the skin immediately. Second, it constricts fat tissue, tightening the skin immediately. Third, it promotes collagen synthesis and neovascularisation, allowing your skin to regenerate at a cellular level. All of this helps to improve skin texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and make skin more elastic.

A thread lift is a technique in which a dissolvable suture is used to raise and tighten the skin. It is less invasive than facelift surgery and may typically be completed in less than 45 minutes without the use of a knife.

For Polydioxanone (PDO) thread lifts, the biodegradable polyester suture is utilised. They are ideal for skin rejuvenation, although certain newer forms of thread lifts are more effective at raising drooping skin.

Why Choose PDO Threads?

PDO threads are one of three popular suture types utilised in thread lift operations. Polycaprolactone (PCL) and polylactic acid (PLA) are the other two forms (PCA).

PDO threads have been used in operations since the 1980s, making them the oldest of the three. They are made of a colourless polyester that degrades in the body after approximately six months.

The presence of these sutures in your skin stimulates fibroblast cells to create additional collagen. Collagen is the protein responsible for the structure and flexibility of the skin. Collagen depletion is one of the primary causes of ageing skin.

PDO threads can be further classified into three groups:

Mono Filaments for PDO: Smooth sutures can enable the skin to be revitalised by promoting collagen synthesis.
PDO gear threadings: These threads offer facial support and lift by hooking into your skin like small fishhooks.
PDO screw threads: These help to restore volume to drooping skin by one or two interwoven threads.

Additional kinds of thread used are PCA and PLA which are more modern variations. Their half-life in the body is longer, which allows them to stimulate more collagen production. PCA takes between 12 and 15 months; PLA threads are absorbed in roughly 12 months.

Every kind of thread is suitable for specific use. While PLA and PCA threads are more effective in raising drooping skin, PDO threads are more effective in repairing and revitalising tissue.

What can PDO threads help me with?

A PDO thread lift treatment can help tighten sagging skin on the face, neck, and body, while also improving skin quality (smoothing and rejuvenating) in areas such as the arms, abdomen, and buttocks. Depending on our goals, we will use either monos, cogs, or combinations of threads. We generally recommend mono threads for younger patients who are not yet sagging and want to maintain their skin quality. Older patients can also use mono threads to tighten specific areas of their skin or prepare it for cog threads. Cog threads are generally appropriate for patients in their 30s and up who have symptoms of drooping skin, such as jowls.

Which facial regions can be treated with a PDO thread lift?

You can treat the majority of ageing facial features with a thread lift. We frequently address the areas surrounding your cheeks, jaw, neck, and eyes.

What happens before and during the treatment?

We will apply a topical numbing agent and a local anaesthetic to the treatment site before we begin. This treatment uses a tiny needle that won’t cause any discomfort. We do, however, administer anaesthesia to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Once the anaesthesia has worn off, your treatment will begin. We introduce PDO threads via cannulas or blunt-tipped, sharp-tipped needles. Once implanted into the appropriate layer of skin, they function as anchors, guiding the skin upwards. The extraneous threads are then snipped.

Is my treatment going to take a long time?

The affected area determines the length of your treatment. Cleaning and preparing the skin, as well as applying numbing medicine, typically take about 30 minutes before the procedure. The therapy itself takes about 15–30 minutes to complete.

Can PDO threads be used in conjunction with other treatments?

Undoubtedly! The integration of PDO threads with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and complementary cosmetic procedures like anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers yields extraordinary outcomes. This synergistic approach not only enhances the effectiveness of each treatment but also provides patients with remarkable and comprehensive aesthetic improvements. By combining these modalities, you can ensure optimal results tailored to each individual’s unique needs and desires.

What is the longevity of the threads?

The thickness of the threads, the quality of the threads, and your body’s rate of metabolism all influence how long the PDO threads last. However, the majority of our clients report that the threads have disintegrated within six to nine months.

A surgeon with 16 years of experience with thread lifts reports in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal that he has seen results last anywhere from one to nine years. Three to four years is a typical duration for the outcomes of younger individuals. Typically, older individuals with poor skin volume or elasticity only experience advantages for one to two years.

When can I expect to get the results?

Some of the treatment’s effects, such as skin lifting and contouring, are immediately noticeable. In fact, when you leave our clinic, your skin may appear tighter than it will a week later.

Within one to two months of your procedure, you will see the full benefits of your PDO thread lift. Your age has a big impact on how long it takes you. Age is one of the most important factors in how quickly your body generates new, healthy collagen. Collagen is the protein that plump up, smooths out wrinkles, and fills in fine lines.

Interested in PDO Thread lift Treatment in the North East

How many sessions will I require?

Following a single session, a significant majority of our esteemed clientele expressed immense satisfaction with the results achieved. We encourage our valued clients to schedule a follow-up appointment approximately six to nine months post-initial treatment to evaluate the need for any subsequent sessions. Subsequently, our expert practitioners typically anticipate a prolonged efficacy lasting up to three years, offering enduring aesthetic enhancements without necessitating further intervention. At our esteemed aesthetics clinic, we prioritise delivering enduring satisfaction and consistently strive to exceed expectations with our tailored treatment protocols.

Surgical vs non-surgical PDO thread facelift?

You should not view a non-surgical thread lift as a substitute for surgery due to its less dramatic results and the need for repeated procedures. However, a non-surgical thread lift is quick, relatively pain-free, has minimal downtime, and requires no overnight hospital stay. There’s no scarring, and the risk is minimal compared to surgery. It’s also ideal for clients who have respiratory or heart diseases and cannot tolerate anaesthesia. It is a temporary procedure, but it’s a great option if you want to try a new look.

For a non-surgical thread lift, a consultation with a trained medical professional is vital in creating your bespoke treatment plan. With Dr Matla’s wealth of experience and ability to create a unique course of high-quality treatments for each patient, you’re only a consultation away from reaching your personal aesthetic goals.

What aftercare is required?

The majority of people are able to resume normal activities with an immediate improvement in their appearance. Some people will experience redness, pinprick marks, and swelling, as well as puckering at the suture site and indentations at the insertion and exit points. The immediate side effects should subside within two weeks.

The procedure may leave the sutures tender for a week. If necessary, you can take some simple paracetamol to help, but most patients skip this step. When applying makeup or skincare, you may feel the stitches or anchoring cones and not see them.

The patient will be advised :

  • Sleep on your back for 5 nights.
  • Make-up should not be worn for 24 hours.
  • No facials or facial massage for 14 days.
  • No extreme facial expressions for 2 weeks.
  • Application of anti-biotic cream as advised.
  • To attend a review appointment as advised.
  • For 14 days after treatment, avoid alcohol, strenuous exercise, sunbathing, and extremes of heat or cold. These activities have been linked to an increase in swelling and a prolongation of its duration.
  • Swelling may worsen in the first 24 hours, but it should subside within a few days. Cold packs can help to reduce swelling.
  • Bruising may take a few days to appear; arnica can aid in the removal of bruising. It is best to avoid aspirin and alcohol for the first 12 to 48 hours after treatment.
  • As the swelling subsides, the tenderness should subside as well.

Potential PDO thread lift complications?

Facelift surgeries have a much higher risk of complications than PDO thread lifts. When performed by a trained professional, there is less risk of scarring, severe bruising, or bleeding.
In 15 to 20% of procedures, minor complications arise, but they are usually easily correctable.

Complications that could arise include:
● Discomfort
● Pain
● Minor bruising
● Scarring
● Threads being snapped
● accumulation of blood (hematoma)
● Bleeding
● Hairloss
● Inflammation

Additional Procedures May Be Required: In some cases, a single PDO lift procedure may not be sufficient to achieve optimal results, and additional procedures may be required. While we expect maximum results, we cannot guarantee or warranty any possible results. We will instruct the patient to follow all safety precautions and post-treatment instructions, and provide a written copy.

Thread lifting is safe, but not entirely risk-free. Dr.Matla will discuss all the risks and benefits with you at your consultation and again prior to treatment.
