PDO Thread Lift  -  a gentle face-lift that lasts

A  PDO Thread Lift  is, we feel, the best anti-aging treatment offered at Karen Lockett Clinics. The initial 'face-lift' effect, results in an immediate more refreshed & youthful appearance; this, combined with the fact that the body then continues with the anti-aging process, post treatment, means a PDO Thread Lift treatment really is one of the most effective beauty treatments for anti-aging and facial rejuvenation .

PDO Thread Lift treatment is essentially a non surgical face-lift and neck-lift procedure, using specialised threads to lift and tighten the skin. The threads, as well as having brought about a facial lift, then go on to stimulate new collagen production, smoothing lines & wrinkles, tightening pores and creating volume.

How do PDO Thread Lifts Work?

PDO thread lift technology is based on using our natural skin tension lines to bring about an effect similar to a surgical facelift. PDO threads can also be used to limit the strength of certain facial muscles. Once a PDO thread is put into place, it produces an immediate result and improvement in appearance.

What is a Thread Lift Treatment - Illustration

PDO Beauty Lift Threads trigger the skins rejuvenation process producing new collagen: lifting and tightening the skin, smoothing wrinkles, tightening up pores and producing volume, giving a more youthful appearance to the skin.

A treatment will take between 30 minutes to two hours, and leaves no scaring. Any swelling and bruising will settle and disappear within an approximate time frame of three days to two weeks.

What are PDO Threads?

Polydioxanone (PDO) has been used in medicine for over 20 years, mainly for dissolvable sutures used in surgery.

Non-surgical face-lift treatments that use special threads to 'lift', have been carried out for several years. Over these years many different kind of thread lift products appeared onto the market, such as: Silhouette, Aptos, Happy Lift and others. The latest product used in such treatments is called a PDO thread. In contrast to the previously used threads, PDO threads do not have hooks or tapers that raise the tissue. The lifting effect is achieved both by the special thread weave, and the substance Polydioxanone (PDO), from which the threads are made.

PDO threads have properties that stimulate the synthesis of collagen and elastin, thus providing lift and improved skin quality to the area treated. The result is not only an immediate more youthful appearance, but also the added benefit of stimulating the body's own anti-aging process.

Are PDO Thread Lifts Safe?

Most people over the age of 25 are suitable for the procedure, if the signs of ageing have become apparent. Ageing causes the skin tissue to thin as the collagen and elastin fibres break down, resulting in sagging skin, deep creases, folds, lines and wrinkles.

How Long will a PDO Thread Lift Treatment Result Last?

A result is expected to last between 2-3 years - this will be dependant on a patient’s age, the quality of their skin, and the extent of correction that was required at the time of treatment.
