PDO Threads and Silhouette Threads
PDO Therapy (otherwise known as a Thread Lift) is an aesthetics treatment founded on the philosophy that the natural skin-wounding process can help mature skin to restore and renew itself back to its former glory.
Much like in acupuncture, during a Thread Lift we use a fine needle to delicately pierce the skin, leaving a small, absorbable thread behind in its wake. Multiple threads are used within one treatment, and in addition to the immediate lift they provide, over time the surrounding skin will increase its level of collagen production, providing results that continue to reap rewards long after the procedure.
As a material, polydioxanone (PDO) is already widely used in medical suturing, meaning that its efficacy and safety has long been proven.
Who is the ideal candidate? Thread Lift patients tend to be in their mid-thirties onwards as one of the biggest concerns it treats is skin sagging and loss of volume. The treatment would suit anyone who worries about injecting a chemical into their face, or looking too 'done', as the material used is completely biodegradable, and the main benefit is derived from the skin's natural healing mechanisms. In addition to improving the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles, a Thread Lift can lessen the impact of hollow cheeks, jowls and sagging skin, making it the perfect choice for patients entering their fourth or fifth decades.
Why choose this treatment?
The Thread Lift is a perfect blend of natural methods and scientific breakthrough, and will suit anyone looking for a gentler alternative to a face lift. The treatment is done within the hour, and recovery time can be as little as 24, meaning that the client can go back to work the very next day, looking refreshed, rejuvenated, and subtly younger. By activating the skin's natural healing functions, PDO Therapy encourages collagen production within the skin, a process that maintains the skin's youthful elasticity and volume. The threads tend to become fully absorbed into the skin after 11 months, but the effects of the treatment can last for up to two years.
The product used is a fine needle affixed to an absorbable thread which is inserted into the subcutaneous layer of the skin, where it remains implanted into the skin and starting the natural regenerative process and mechanical stimulation of wound healing and tissue contraction.
