lifting and contouring
with a Thread Lift
With a Thread Lift, you can lift and contour facial contours.
PDO threads are made from soluble PDO (polydioxanone), a material that has been used for many years in medicine, especially in surgery. PDO threads are also used in cardiac and vascular surgery because their inclusion strengthens tissue and is a natural collagen stimulant. Ultimately, this is why they are so useful for the lifting effect: Collagen is the main element for fresh, voluminous and firm skin.
PDO relaxes muscles and tendons while stimulating the production of new collagen in the skin. PDO also stimulates the production of elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin, which are essential for a youthful appearance of the skin. PDO threads are effective in facial tightening and wrinkle removal through self-stimulation of the cells.
Non-Surgical Face Lifting
A typical treatment involves placement of the desired number of threads to treat face and neck. The threads are introduced with a needle, which is removed once the threads have been positioned. Recovery from a thread lift is quite easy. Thread lifts can be performed under local, rather than general anaesthesia, meaning that thread lift patients can drive themselves home and look after themselves immediately after having their procedure. While some patients will experience a little bit of soreness, redness and swelling after having a thread lift and therefore wish to take the rest of the day off, most can return to work immediately. Strong pain medication is seldom needed after having a thread lift, making it easier for patients to return to their normal routine. This procedure is therefore ideal for people who have children at home or those who have busy, demanding careers.Thread lifts are low risk, thanks to how non-invasive they are. There is virtually no risk of scarring, severe bruising, bleeding or other complications after having a thread lift. In rare cases, patients may experience irritation, infection or their sutures becoming visible under their skin. If this occurs, however, the sutures can simply be removed and the patient’s face will return to its prior state.

Before & After
Frequently Asked Questions
Which areas can be treated with a Thread Lift?
The sutures help in improving the smoothness of drooping jowls, lower jaw, neck and raising the eyebrows as well as contour the nose.
How long do the results last of a Thread Lift?
PDO threads stay in place for about four to six months, after which they slowly dissolve. However, patients can expect the results of their PDO threads to remain visible for up to two years after treatment. This long-lasting effect results from the continued improvement in skin condition that occurs as a result of collagen infusion.
What are the post-treatment instructions after a Thread Lift?
Swelling and bruising may occur after the procedure, which can be prevented with the use of ice packs. Touching and tapping the treated areas is restricted for at least a week.
