PDO thread lift treatment can be suitable for men and women who have sagging around their cheeks, jawline and neck. It is a minimally invasive procedure, so it is often a good option for customers who are not ready for traditional face lift surgery.
The PDO thread lift treatment usually takes less than one hour under local anaesthetic, but this is dependent on the number of threads required.
No, you’ll be able to leave the clinic as soon as the treatment is completed.
From a small entry point close to the ear, fine threads are inserted along the contours of the face in the areas that you have discussed with your practitioner. The threads create a subtle lifting effect and can encourage collagen production. The effects typically last 12-18 months and the threads will dissolve naturally over time.
We want you to make a fully informed decision before you go ahead with treatment, so we offer a private consultation free of charge. At your consultation, you’ll meet with a cosmetic practitioner to discuss the facial treatment options available and whether PDO thread lift is the most suitable procedure for your needs. You’ll be able to ask questions about all aspects of the treatment, from the areas that can be treated to aftercare and the results you can expect. Your practitioner will be with you every step of the journey. They will give you a personal quotation of costs and information about finance options, the expected timescale and our treatment facilities.
At your consultation, you can book your treatment if you feel ready, but there’s no obligation to go ahead. Cosmetic treatment is a big step and you may want to take time to do more research and think about your decision. We’ll give you an information booklet, which provides comprehensive information on your procedure and aftercare. This is an important resource and we require customers to read the detailed information it contains. You’ll also find lots of helpful information here on our website – you can read about THG’s cosmetic treatment expertise and inspiring stories from some of our customers. Our clinic teams are available to discuss any concerns you may have. And when you feel ready, they can book you in for your procedure. We also have a 14-day ‘cooling off’ period in place, which means that if you change your mind about the procedure after booking within that period, you will not be charged.
On the day of your treatment, your clinic team will make your experience as comfortable as possible. PDO thread lift treatment involves making a small entry close to the ear, then inserting fine threads precisely along the contours in the areas you need treated. The threads are made from the same material as medical stitches and will dissolve naturally over time. The treatment is carried out under local anaesthetic and generally takes less than one hour.
All THG clinics are equipped to the highest standards of clinical care and customer comfort and we’ll be here to help you recuperate quickly. For PDO thread lift treatment, you’ll be able to leave our clinic as soon as the procedure is completed. Following your procedure, you may have some slight swelling and bruising but this usually settles within a week. The results often last around 18 months and can be enhanced by having additional threads inserted.
At THG, we’re here to support you after your procedure. Two weeks after your PDO thread lift treatment you’ll have a review with your practitioner and an adjustment or manipulation as necessary. You’ll have a further review after another two weeks if required. The effects of the procedure can last 12-18 months, after which another PDO thread lift treatment can be performed to maintain results.
