PDO Thread and Face Lift in Norwich

PDO Thread Face and Neck Lift in Norwich.

WHAT IS A PDO THREAD LIFT?

This is a non-invasive procedure which is an alternative to a surgical face lift.

Temporary surgical sutures are gently inserted under the skin to produce a subtle but visible lift in the face.

The threads are used to 'suspend' the skin by pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face.

PDO Threads are dissolving threads that are injected/inserted into the face to create instant lifting results, and long term collagen regrowth. PDO threads dissolve fully in the skin in around 3 months, but still continue to product collagen within the skin.
As well as the results being instant, they are also EXTREMELY natural which I feel is important to a lot of clients who want to look better, but do not want everyone to know they have had work done.
 
Virtually pain free with very little downtime, PDO threads are fast becoming the ultimate in an alternative to expensive facial surgery...

'Full Face Thread & Filler Lift Package' - £499
PDO thread face lift in Norwich, Norfolk
Packages & Prices
In some cases, a little filler may be needed to support the skin due to bone loss. This is an important foundation to and precursor to PDO threads as we need to build structure in order for the threads to work sufficiently.
Below are 3 packages I have put together to suit a range of clients and their needs:

Package 1; Soft & Subtle - £250

For younger clients who are just looking for a gentle lift and a subtle rejuvenation, aged 30+.
 

Package 1 Includes:

Up to 4 cog lifting threads and up to 20 mono threads to stimulate collagen and elastin production.

Package 2; Refresh & Rejuvenate - £350

This  package is ideal for those clients who are clients 45/50+ who are looking for a little rejuvenation, lift & improved skin quality.

If your goals are more towards something a little more than a subtle refresh, then I would recommend booking the 'Non-Surgical Face Lift' package below; as the amount of lifting cogs and threads are unlimited.

Package 2 Includes:

Up to 2mls of filler to help build structure before threads are placed.

Up to 6 cogs for lift and pull and up to 40 mono threads to stimulate collagen and elastin production and to create the scaffolding for the cog threads.

Package 3;  The 'Non-Surgical Face Lift' - £499:
This is the full monty of thread lifts and a full face refresh ideal for clients 45/50+ looking for a more obvious (yet natural) rejuvenation.

Package 3 Includes:
Up to 3mls of filler to help build structure before threads are placed.
As many moulding cogs (high tensile strength) that are needed each side of the face for lift and as many mono threads as needed per side for skin rejuvenation.
Neck Lift - £300:
Always a forgotten part of the body, yet the one part that literally gives your age away as we concentrate so highly on the face itself!

As many mono threads as needed will be applied to cover the full neck area for a full rejuvenation and tightening effect of the skin.

Did you know...that combining this treatment with a 'Nefertiti Neck Lift' with toxin, yields simply AMAZING results!
This treatment is £350 and needs to be repeated every 4-6 months, but the thread neck lift will be something you would need to repeat once every 18-24 months.

Different Types of PDO Threads

Mono Threads

Cog Threads

Screw Threads

Mono threads are a type of single PDO filament. These threads are smooth and are minimally invasive.

Once in the skin, the threads activate collagen synthesis for a gradual skin tightening and skin rejuvenation effect.

Cog threads are similar to mono threads but contain barbs that attach and 'hook' to the underside of the skin. These are used to create the lift in the skin - similar to a face lift, but less dramatic.

If you’re looking to give areas of your face more volume, screw threads are an excellent option. 

To create a V-shape face, screw threads help to reverse sunken areas and give the face a non-surgical facelift.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a PDO Thread face lift?


A PDO Thread face lift is a procedure which uses dissolvable threads to lift, elongate and create collagen in the skin on the face.




How does a PDO Thread face lift work?


A PDO Thread face lift works by pulling up the skin on the face by the use of PDO threads. These threads have either cog or barbs to hold the skin positioned once they are in place - depending on your desired outcome.




How is a PDO Thread lift performed?


A PDO Thread face lift is a relatively quick procedure performed in around 30-40mins. You will first be marked out to ensure symmetry of result. Local anaesthetic is then provided to the treatment area to improve the comfort of the procedure. Threads are then expertly placed to complete the procedure.




Can a PDO thread lift be achieved with anti-wrinkle (botox) injections?


No. The lift provided by anti-wrinkle (botox) injections cannot reliably ever produce these results as the muscles do not lift or pull the skin in the way we want too. Also, we dont have a 'jowl' muscle so there is no way for anti-wrinkle injections to solve a sagging jowl/jaw issue, or even neck.




Can a PDO thread face lift be achieved with filler?


Yes and No. Fillers fill and PDO threads lift. Together, working in synergy, the two can have an extremely powerful effect, but if the skin is more lax on say a more mature client, then filler will have little to no effect and this is where I may suggest enhancing and complimenting your thread-lift with a touch of well placed dermal filler; if I think a sprinkle here and there can improve the longevity of results.




Is a PDO thread face lift procedure safe?


Yes! This is a safe procedure using dissolving biocompatible surgical threads. These threads are composed of the same types of material used in a general operation. The most common risks of a PDO Thread face lift includes swelling and bruising that are short lived. This will be discussed during your consultation as they relate to you.




Will I have a scar?


No - not at all. The very nature of this procedure means that there are no incisions and no scars. Scar tissue forms when the skin is damaged and it cannot repair itself properly. Nothing like this occurs with the procedure so any incision marks will heal beautifully within around 7-10 days.




Is the treatment painful?


You may be provided with a local anaesthetic injection, which stings but is short lived. After this, the procedure is relatively painless. You will just feel pressure, or pushing or pulling. It can feel a little strange, but is perfectly normal. I do try to avoid using local anaesthetic injections however, as theycause a lot of swelling in the area which can make judging symmetry a litte harder.




What is the downtime?


A PDO Thread face lift will heal in around 7-10 days (can be up to 2 weeks) as swelling and bruising settles and subsides. Most of my clients experience very little in the way of bruising or swelling. It all comes down to the individual however. You may feel a little tightness in the face where the threads have been inserted as you turn your head, wash your face, eat/drink and talk etc, but this is all normal and part of the process. You will be given an aftercare card before you leave the clinic.




How long will the results last?


PDO threads last between 12-24 months depending on your lifestyle and activity level. The threads tend to dissolve in around 3-4 months, but the effects last much longer than this. For longer lasting results a repeat procedure is advisable. It is important to note that although PDO thread lifts are amazing, they are not surgery. As long as you have realistic expectations with this, then you will be very pleased with the results and outcome!




Will my skin be more saggy after the threads dissolve?


No. In fact, your skin will likely be more firm, as threads stimulate collagen which is what makes the skin less prone to sagging or wrinkles! Your facial skin will start to gradually drop back to its natural state over the course of 6-12 months, but you will not be left with saggy skin as the threads will have stimulated collagen during those months. You would then just book a little top up as and when to maintain.
