PDO Threads are a method for tightening and thickening your skin.
The threads are are made from a material called Polydioxanone (PDO) which is an absorbable polymer that is flexible and durable.
They are smooth and without barbs making them minimally invasive.
PDO Threads are inserted into the sub dermal level, in a mesh-like pattern, to promote the creation of new collagen. The threads activate collagen synthesis which produces a gradual skin thickening, skin tightening and rejuvenation effect.
Results may be seen in 6 weeks and will continue to improve over 2 to 6 months.
While the threads slowly dissolve, their effects may last up to 12 months.
Firstly, topical anaesthetic is applied to the treatment area.
The PDO Threads are then inserted using a micro-needle or a cannula. There is no incision and subsequently, no stitches are required.
As the area is numb, the treatment is almost painless. You may experience some tenderness in the days following the treatment.
Treatment sessions typically last around 45 minutes.
$14.00 per thread
Approximately 20 – 40 threads are used per area.
The actual number of threads required varies due to a number of factors such as the size of the area and the quality of the skin.
We recommend booking in for a consultation to discuss how many you may require.
