PDO mono threads are a popular non-surgical method for tightening, firming and rejuvenating the skin.
A single treatment activates collagen production to refresh sagging, thinning or aged skin in order to create a youthful, restored appearance.
A PDO mono threads treatment rejuvenates skin appearance by accelerating and improving the integrity of collagen and elastin production.
The secret to this innovative treatment is the fine dissolvable mono threads that are inserted into the skin. Collagen and connective tissue production is stimulated around the threads, creating support and increasing density to improve skin firmness. Collagen and elastin production happens gradually, giving you subtle and natural results.
This treatment is suitable for concerns including wrinkles, fine lines and thinning skin, where lifting is not necessarily required.
For optimal results, we only use medical-grade, TGA-approved threads. Results will be apparent straight away and then continue to improve over 8–12 weeks as collagen and elastin production is stimulated. Results can last up to 12 months.
How a PDO mono threads treatment works
As elastin and collagen production slows down, the skin loses its volume and structure. This is what leads to signs of ageing, including fine lines, sagging and crepey skin, and wrinkles.
We treat the area of concern by inserting fine needles into the skin that contain filaments of polydioxanone (PDO) – a medical-grade material that stimulates collagen and elastin production.
The super fine threads remain in the skin once the needles are removed, and slowly dissolve with time. The threads are positioned in a way that scaffolds the tissue, creating a gradual thickening and tightening effect that rejuvenates your appearance. As collagen and elastin starts to reproduce, results improve over 8–12 weeks.
PDO mono threads can be placed in the face and body, and the number of threads required will depend on which areas are targeted.
We use the MINT PDO mono threads because they are TGA approved and backed by 6+ years of clinical studies for efficacy and safety. The quality of this brand stems from the patented way its threads are moulded, creating superior tensile and tissue fixation strength.
PDO mono threads stimulate collagen gradually, which achieves subtle and natural results. Results build up over 8–12 weeks, with the full effect peaking after 6 months.
No. The PDO mono threads will dissolve over a 3-month period, however the effects may last for up to a year.
Application of a numbing cream helps to alleviate discomfort.
This will depend upon how many areas are being treated. Allow up to 60 minutes for your treatment.
There is no downtime, however bruising is to be expected. You may also experience some mild tenderness in the treatment area, which can be alleviated with paracetamol.
PDO mono threads improve skin structure to tighten and rejuvenate skin. This reduces the appearance of fine lines and improves skin texture, making you look younger and refreshed.
A face and neck thread lift is better suited for lifting tissue, as opposed to improving skin structure.
