The thread lift is becoming an increasingly popular treatment within the field of aesthetic medicine. The procedure can be performed using polydioxanone (PDO) threads to lift, tighten and rejuvenate areas of sagging skin, and minimize fatty tissue. This allows for the non-surgical redefinition of facial contours and enhancement of skin integrity. Thread lifting with PDO can also provide certain aspects of the much sought after surgical facelift in a clinic setting. PDO threads aim to promote targeted lipolysis of fatty areas and neocollagenesis in sagging skin, as well as lift the treated areas. However, it is important to note that the extent of these enhancements varies between individuals, and must be done under expert clinical Advice and guidance due to importance of managing patient expectations pre and post PDO thread lifting.

A PDO Thread Lift is a minimally invasive procedure. After numbing and infusion of local anesthesia, the PDO threads are inserted via sharp or blunt tip needles (called cannulas) into different layers of the skin. Once inserted, the threads anchor the skin and lift it upwards. The excess threads are then cut off.

Depending on the areas treated, the procedure takes 15-30 minutes. There is some discomfort during the procedure, but because of the improved techniques, my patients are experiencing less and less pain.
