PDO Thread lift treatment is a 30 - 90 minute procedure. It's a revolutionary treatment for lifting and contouring the skin without the need for surgery. Considered the non-surgical lunchtime facelift - PDO threads offer a safe, non invasive and natural to achieve profound skin tightening results with PDO threads.
PDO thread lifts are safe and effective, showing immediate tightening and contouring as well as lasting results. This lifting procedure is minimally invasive, producing only slight discomfort. As a result, it requires next to no downtime, unlike surgical lifting methods. The versatility of PDO threads makes them ideal to help you achieve bespoke results.
A PDO thread lift lasts for 9 to 12 months— and even up to 18 months. The initial threads dissolve after 6 months, but the collagen they generate stays in your skin for 3-6 months longer.
A mini thread lift’s cost depends on the individual needs. We recommend to book a obligation-free doctor led consultation face-face or telehealth to discuss a treatment plan to discuss rejuvenation options.

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.
