THREADLIFT Q & A
Who is a good candidate for thread face lift?
The best candidates are men and women who are beginning to experience the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead, drooping of the brow, sagging of the mid and lower face, visible jowls and loose skin on the neck.
Which areas are the most effectively treated with thread?
For the face, these would be lifting of the eye brows, naso-labial folds, marionette lines, cheeks, jaw line and double chins.
What are PDO Threads made of?
These threads are 100% Polydioxanone which is a clinically proven bio-compatible and bio-absorbable material that is already widely used medical suturing.
Can PDO threads be used alongside other aesthetic procedure?
PDO Threads Therapy can be used alone or can be combined with other treatments to deliver optimal results e.g.: Fillers, Anti-wrinkle injections, Sculptra, PRP, Micro-needling, Peels, Radiofrequency and Fractional Laser Treatments.
When do you see results with PDO threads?
There can be an immediate improvement seen after treatments with a visible lift in the areas treated. This will improve over a period of 2-6 months as new collagen grows between the threads and gives further lift and tightening to the skin. The PDO Threads gradually dissolve over about 6 months, but the resulting lift remains.
How long do the results usually last for?
This varies depending on the patient’s age at the time of treatment, the quality of the skin, degree of sagging and the number of threads used. However, studies have shown that results can last up to 15 months.
Are there any side effects with PDO Threads?
PDO Thread lifting is a very safe procedure and complications are extremely rare. Minor complications may include temporary swelling and bruising. Patients may feel slight tightness or a pulling sensation following the treatment but this subsides over a few weeks.
