The thread lift is an effective cosmetic treatment used to lift and tighten sagging skin tissues through inducing collagen. Polydioxanone material makes threads. For a long time, the PDO threads have been in use in wound and surgery closure. PDO thread lift is a standard skin lifting procedure today. The threads are fine and absorbable, inserted deep in the skin to lift skin instantly, to help cellular renewal by collagen stimulation, and to tighten skin.
The PDO thread lift helps to reduce fine lines, skin texture and elasticity. The therapy treats the following body parts:
- Upper and lower cheeks
- Nasolabial fold
- Mouth corners (Marionette lines)
- Neck, Jawline
The PDO thread is introduced in the required area, and they form a support structure for the tissue due to collagen synthesis. Six months after the procedure, the lifting effect reaches its peak because of collagen forming around the threads. Cellular rejuvenation effects cause the lifted facial contours to remain for 3-6 more months. The cells are also stimulated to produce new blood vessels and collagen, at the same time fat tissue contract making the skin tighten and have a slimming effect.
Depending on the skin rejuvenation and lifting needs, our specialist at London Dental Smiles will help you have the best thread form the different threads available.
