PDO (Polydioxanone) threads offer a minimally-invasive method of lifting and tightening the skin whilst sculpting the face in harmony with your facial structure and customisable to your treatment goals. Our expert practitioner will tailor a selection of medical-grade threads (or sutures) suited to your desired results, which are carefully inserted into the face or neck and then tightened in a pulling up motion. The presence of these dissolvable sutures in your skin triggers cells in your body called fibroblasts to produce more collagen, which gives skin its elasticity and thus produces immediate lifting and contouring effects. Popular areas of treatment include the forehead, eyes, cheeks and neck.
