PDO Threading is a Medical cosmetic technique done by Dr le Grange which is used to lift and tighten sagging skin in the cheeks, jowls, and neck, strengthen the contour of the face and reduce roundness.
The threads are introduced into the area and form a support structure for the tissue of the face due to collagen synthesis
There is an immediate result, but the lifting effect is at its peak 6 months later when collagen has formed around the threads.
Who is a good candidate for PDO Thread Lifting?
The best candidates for PDO Thread Lifting are men and women who are beginning to experience sagging of the mid and lower face, visible jowls and loose skin on the neck.
How does the procedure work?
Local anaesthetic is injected into the treatment area. The PDO thread is then introduced using a cannula or micro-needle into the required area, and when the needle is taken out the thread remains implanted in the skin. There is then tightening and skin rejuvenation from the natural wound healing process
The procedure will take around about 30-60 minutes, depending on what treatment you will require. You should be able to fully resume your everyday routine and social commitments immediately, although at times there may be minimal bruising.
What are the threads made of?
The threads are made of a material called PDO – or Polydioxanone, a clinically proven bio-compatible and bio degradable material that is widely used in medical suturing
Can it be combined with other treatments?
PDO Thread Lifting is a tailor made treatment which is adjusted to your requirements. It can be used alone or in combination with other treatments to deliver optimal results eg, dermal fillers, BOTOX injections, micro-needling (dermapen), peels, etc
How long until we see results?
There is an immediate improvement seen after the treatment, 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 a further lift and tightening to the skin. The PDO threads gradually dissolve over 6 months but the resulting lift remains. Results can last between 2-3 years
