PDO Thread Therapy is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation technique that transforms the appearance of loose or sagging skin and helps to restore facial structure by reconfiguring contours. The process involves inserting absorbable cosmetic thread under the skin’s surface, lifting facial contours and promoting the production of collagen, which are eventually reabsorbed by the body having kick-started facial rejuvenation. PDO Thread Therapy controls and improves tissue stimulation as well as muscle contraction and can be applied to any areas of the face that require rejuvenation, such as lower and upper cheeks, foreheads (brow lifting), neck, jawline, marionette lines and naso-labial folds.
Following the same principles, this treatment can also be used to improve loose skin on the arms, thighs and even abdomen.
Performed under local anaesthetic to minimise discomfort, the procedure varies in length of time dependent upon the amount of threads required to achieve the patient’s desired look. The average treatment lasts between 45 and 60 minutes. A slightly more invasive treatment than injections or fillers, patients are usually able to return to daily routines and work a couple of days following their treatment.
Most patients see an immediate improvement to treated areas following PDO Threat Therapy treatments, with results continuing to improve 2 to 6 months following the treatment as new collagen is produced. Results last considerably longer than other age-defying treatments, lasting up to 2 to 3 years.
At GC Aesthetic, the price of PDO Thread Therapy starts at £450.
