4D PDO or PCL threads provide a minimally invasive thread lift. It is a delicate procedure to gently lift sagging facial skin to produce a smoother, more youthful appearance. If gravity has started to take its toll on your face, a PDO thread lift may be a less invasive alternative to a face lift to rejuvenate the face without the risks and downtime associated with surgery. This thread-lift procedure involves very fine barbs on a suture being inserted via a needle prick and then placed under the skin to lift and support sagging areas. It will not offer the same results as a full face lift but is a good option for a more subtle rejuvenation. -Quick -Relatively painless -Effective for PDO (12months) or PCL (24months) -Immediate change that improves over time -Non surgical THREADLIFT PROCEDURE The area to be treated is identified and marked. Anaesthetic cream is placed on the face 30-45 minutes before the treatment to make the experience as comfortable as possible. Then the face is cleaned. Basic PDO threads are placed gently under the skin. Each thread is placed parallel to the last one. Then the face is cleaned and the results inspected and once happy the patient is free to leave. 4D PDO threads are placed in a similar fashion but local anaesthesia is used and a small needle entry point is used before the threads can be pushed under the skin. Immediate gentle retraction is seen. THREADLIFT AFTERCARE We will usually check for evenness and to make sure there is no rippling effect of the skin. We advice that you do not massage it yourself. To reduce the swelling you can use some ice wrapped in a damp cloth. Arnica cream can help reduce any swelling or small bruising that you may have. For 4d PDO threads and above we will invite you to come for a 1 week and 6 week followup.
