How do PDO Mono Threads Work?

A PDO Mono Threads treatment uses bio-absorbable threads, which are inserted into specific depths and areas of the skin in order to offer a facelifting effect. The PDO thread insertion provides an immediate visible tightening effect whilst stimulating the natural collagen production within the skin. This then stimulates skin rejuvenation, elasticity, brighter skin tone and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, nasolabial folds (smile lines) and saggy skin.

How long do they last?

The mono threads produce and increase collagen around the threads. Although the effects are immediately apparent, maximum tension is reached sometime later (between 2 to 3 months). The result is long-lasting rejuvenation of the skin, which delays the natural ageing process by at least 9 to 12 months.

This treatment is performed by our expert team of Registered Nurses who will create a personalised treatment plan tailored to your concerns to help you achieve a more rejuvenated, youthful appearance.

Do PDO Mono Threads hurt?

Is there any downtime after PDO Mono Threads?
