PDO Thread Lifts, a non-surgical method to lift sagging facial features such as lift cheeks, tighten jawline, smooth neck wrinkles, reduce crow’s feet, eye bags & reduce double chins
A thread-lift is a minimally invasive medical aesthetic procedure using dissolving PDO (polydioxanone) threads – which have been used safely in heart surgery for many years. The threads are expertly introduced into the skin to smooth and lift sagging facial features. The threads dissolve completely over six months but they stimulate collagen and elastin within the skin to provide firmer, smoother, wrinkle-free facial features with results lasting for over two years. Thread lifts can stimulate the natural breakdown of fatty deposits under the chin as well as lifting and re-defining your chin and jawline.

What is a PDO Thread Lift?
A thorough medical consultation is required before treatment to assess your suitability for the procedure and to plan treatment – this will include pre-treatment skin preparation treatments and a prescribed home skincare routine to encourage an overall improvement in your skin quality.
On the day of treatment your skin is cleansed and sanitised. Pain relief with local anaesthetic is provided.
The threads are carefully and precisely introduced into the skin to provide the correct directional “lift” to the facial features and skin.
Over the next few weeks the threads completely dissolve. Skin quality and thickness improves. We often see an increase in skin radiance after a thread lift. New collagen is stimulated by the controlled injury of introducing the thread and the stimulation created by the polylactic acid incorporated into the thread. The threads create a temporary, dissolving scaffold to direct the formation of new collagen and skin tissue through the layers of your skin.
We can use a variety of threads of different lengths such as simple mono threads, twist threads, cog and “screw” threads which provide differing degrees of lift and smoothing. A free, face to face consultation is necessary to discuss your objectives and for our Nurse to evaluate the best combination of thread types for you. An accurate quotation of fees can then be provided.
Results can be seen immediately with on-going improvements over the next twelve weeks.
Our Dermalux and Healite LED phototherapy treatment is recommended after treatment to support collagen stimulation, reduce inflammation and bruising – should it occur.
There is minimal, if any visible recovery time. Occasionally there can be bruising. Over the next few weeks you can experience occasional mild “electric shock” sensations as the new skin is stimulated. Neck and double chin results are almost immediate. Lower or full facelift results can take upto three months to fully manifest themselves
Prices from £200 to £2500 for full face and neck treatment – specific information will be provided following the consultation.
