Introduction to PDO Thread Lifts

Thread Lifts are a non-surgical facelift using fine sutures to lift and volumize the face and neck without the down time and invasiveness of a surgical facelift. In the Thread Lift small anchoring sutures are inserted in specifically determined areas of the face and are then used to elevate and lift the sagging areas providing immediate results.

As we age we lose facial volume through bone resorption, muscle atrophy, fat loss and redistribution resulting in noticeable changes in the overlying skin with sagging, loss of skin tone and contour irregularities. Combined with the gradual loss of collagen and elastin, the skin becomes looser and begins to sag which further contributes to a tired and aging face.

Thread Lifts can target these changes by providing structural support and lift through the biodegradable sutures which are long lasting with a slow breakdown rate in the skin.

Thread Lifts do not involve the solid fixation of these tissues to a more elevated position and thus, it should not be expected for threads to deliver the same results as long lasting surgery.

How is thread lift different to surgery?

At Ultimate Aesthetics, we are constantly looking for less invasive ways of obtaining a cosmetic benefit. Although surgeries for brow lifts and cheek lifts have become less invasive, they are still significant procedures.

Frequently Asked Questions

Thread lifts are a relatively new form of non-surgical face lift. If your face has loosening or sagging skin and you want a tighter, fresher more youthful look, this treatment may be suitable. There are no cuts or incisions, just injections.

Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are a special medical grade thread that is thinner than hair, made of protein. Research has confirmed that PDO relaxes tendons and muscles, whilst a foreign body reaction improves the blood flow to the area stimulating neocollagenesis (the production of new collagen in the skin). It also stimulates elastin and hyaluronic acid, both substances are key to maintaining firm, youthful looking skin.

Results are immediate and typically last for 12-24 months. In addition the results will continue to improve in the months following the procedure.

PDO threads have over a decade long safety track record in surgery and wound closure. They have also been used for about 6 years in orthopaedic surgery (frozen shoulder, tennis elbow and cosmetic skin rejuvenation. PDO threads gained FDA approval in 2004.

Topical anaesthetic cream may or may not be applied following which threads are introduced into the skin through a fine needle – into either the skin itself, the muscle, or the subcutaneous fat. The treatment results in an immediate improvement in appearance but the results will improve over ensuing days and weeks as the PDO stimulates neocollagenesis, increasing the amount of collagen in the skin. The appearance of the skin improves in terms of overall texture, becoming thicker, tighter and firmer as fine lines and wrinkles are reduced.

This is a very versatile treatment which can be used in any part of the face and neck to treat sagging brows, naso-labial lines, vertical and horizontal forehead wrinkles, drooping cheeks, marionette lines, sagging jawline, plus wrinkles and folds on the chin and neck.

Thread-lift treatments result in an instant and natural looking improvement in the appearance of the skin. A process of natural protein synthesis then begins after about 10-14 days. Over the subsequent weeks results will continue to improve, peaking at around 6 months and lasting for up to 2 years as your own body produces collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Making this form of non surgical facelift a very long lasting treatment. The thread itself is completely biodegradable and dissolves within 12 weeks, after which new collagen has formed around the thread to continue to support results, maintaining a smooth and supple texture of the skin.
