Skin needling stimulates the body’s natural healing capabilities providing rejuvenation of the skin. Used in conjunction with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), facial needling encourages cell rejuvenation at a fundamental level, reducing signs of ageing, tightening skin, helping to correct acne scarring and pigmentation, and reversing sun damage.
Anti-wrinkle injections help to prevent dynamic wrinkles from becoming static wrinkles. Administered by a medical practitioner, these injections temporarily block the signal between muscle and nerve to smooth the skin for rejuvenated, younger-looking features.
As we age, our skin loses its youthful appearance, and signs of aging become more obvious. Sagging skin and volume loss are just two aging indicators. Over time these changes can significantly alter the shape of the face.
PDO Threads are biodegradable, polydioxanone (PDO) sutures, which dissolve in the body over time.
Once inserted, the polydioxanone suture will be absorbed by the body over time, approximately around 6 to 7 months. Results typically last 12 months.
By stimulating the body’s natural immune response, PDO Threads stimulate the production of collagen, resulting in restored skin elasticity and skin cell regeneration. This can help to improve the appearance of fine lines, skin laxity and jowling.
Using a non-incision method, the Threads procedure is minimally invasive and generally has minimal downtime.
The procedure works by inserting very fine threads under the skin through a tiny hole made with a small needle. The threads grip under the surface of the skin enabling us to lift up the sagging skin. The threads are then secured to hold the lifted position of the skin.
markings will be made in pencil to ensure symmetry;
the skin will be thoroughly cleaned to reduce risk of infection;
local anaesthetic will be injected or applied topically at key locations on the face;
the threads will be inserted under the skin through a small hole made with a needle, and then pulled into position;
Mono Threads are a type of PDO filament which can be inserted into the sub dermal level in a mesh-like pattern, to help increase skin tightness. 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 – 6 months.PDO Mono Threads are ‘short’, smooth threads without barbs. Typically around 5 – 50 PDO Mono Threads are used to treat a single area.
During a facial lifting procedure (e.g., mid-face lift), your Practitioner may use Cog Threads. Cog Threads are thicker lengths of PDO material that are loaded onto a cannula which is then inserted into the skin. These threads have little cogs (or barbs) on them that lift up the sagging skin of the cheek, jowl or brow when the thread is pulled upwards. As they are stronger than PDO Mono Threads, cogs can achieve more lifting and contouring. The results are immediate. This type of treatment is the most effective non-surgical treatment for face lifting.
Thread lifts only have mild discomfort when performed correctly. The use of strong local anaesthetic ensures a comfortable procedure. You can expect less downtime and pain in comparison to a surgical facelift.
Often threads are supplemented with Dermal Fillers to add extra volume to sagging skin. Threads are just one tool in the toolbox to address peri-oral sagging (nasolabial folds and marionette lines) and the formation of jowls. By subtly re-inflating these areas of volume loss with filler we can support sagging tissue and achieve some degree of a lift. This is where PDO Threads have their role. The threads serve to move soft tissue (sagging skin) to a more elevated position. While the lift itself might be minimal, in conjunction with the fullness achieved with Dermal Fillers, we can achieve a definite, discrete improvement of facial contours.
Filler also allows for less downward tension on the threads, and therefore better settling of the threads and longevity.
