PDO THREAD LIFT
A PDO thread lift is designed to subtly lift facial skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles while also encouraging collagen production for more volume in the treated area.
The first of its kind, Profhilo® is a revolutionary hyaluronic acid moisturising treatment which is made with the patented NAHYCO® technology. This results in a unique, hyaluronic-acid-containing injectable gel that has a prolonged stimulating activity on the dermal cells. When injected into skin, Profhilo stimulates the skin cell receptors to counteract skin laxity and improve and restore the firmness of the skin.
THE MOST EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVE TO FACE LIFT SURGERY
Thread lifting is a procedure when your skin is lifted by inserting surgical threads underneath it and using them to give the skin the desired position.
The procedure is very safe, poses no downtime, and is an ideal alternative to facelift surgery. It is ideal for sagging skin, wrinkles, and lines.
PDO (polydioxanone) thread is a type of surgical thread that is entirely degradable. It will dissolve in your skin throughout the 6 months following your treatment (the results will last much longer: see below). It has been used in surgery for decades and poses no risks, which makes it the best choice for this procedure.
Not only does PDO thread therapy physically lift your skin, but it also enhances its tightness by triggering collagen production. This is why the results can last up to 18 months: much longer than the six months it takes the PDO threads to dissolve.
The procedure is performed under anaesthesia (cream) and leaves no marks on your skin. First, the doctor pierces the skin with a needle, then inserts the thread and positions it so as to lift the desired part. One area might need about 15 threads positioned in a basket-weave pattern.
In rare cases, the skin may get irritated, or the threads may be visible; if that happens, the threads can easily be removed on the spot.
