PDO/COG Thread Lift

1 hr
From £200

A thread lift is a procedure that uses dissolvable suture tighten and lift your skin. It's a less invasive procedure than a facelift and can often be performed in under 45 minutes without needing expensive and painful surgery!

 

This treatment has become increasingly popular since the fox eye trend came onto the scene.

PDO threads are excellent for defining the jawline as well as lifting and tightening sagging skin of the jowls. 
 

Before Procedure

You will come in for a consultation with Lorena who will discuss whether you qualify for the treatment. Anaesthetic will then be injected around the treatment area to avoid any discomfort. 

During Procedure

Discomfort should be minimal and the treatment is vitrually pain free due to the anaesthetic. 

Entry points will be made with small injections to insert the threads underneath the skin, muscle or subcutaneous fat. The threads will then be tightened to suspend the skin in its new position. The threads are biodegradable and will dissolve in around 12 weeks, but by that point new collagen cells will have built around the thread to support the restructure and maintain the results.

 

The time the treatment takes is dependent on the number of threads inserted.

You’ll be able to leave the clinic as soon as your PDO thread treatment has been completed. You may experience mild discomfort or swelling after the procedure, so we recommend taking over the counter painkillers, if needed, to ease any discomfort. You may want to take the rest of the day off work as you may have some swelling, although this may not always be the case.

After Procedure

We advise that you avoid wearing make up for the first 12 hours after your procedure and that you sleep sitting upwards for the first 5 nights after treatment to avoid rolling onto your face. We also advise you to avoid extreme facial expressions and any facial treatments for 2 weeks post-treatment to allow the threads to settle into the skin correctly. You should also avoid extreme temperatures, as they may cause irritation.
