PDO Thread and Face Lift in Norwich

PDO Thread Face and Neck Lift in Norwich.


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.   
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...
To keep things simple and transparent, the prices have been split into a few categories depending on what threads and how many will be used on the day.
PDO Threads are priced similarly to my filler prices, so if we need to add any filler in conjunction with the threads for a better outcome, there won't be any huge price differences.

1 Treatment Area - £199:
This will be literally that. One area; cheeks or jaw or jowl or nose etc.
However, you are likely to find that one area may not be sufficient as the jowl can lifted if the cheeks are lifted.
So if we use cog/barbed (these create the lift/pull) threads to pull up the cheeks, the jaw/jowl will have a little lift to it also.
Then, if we did the jaw alongside that for example, you would get an even greater result.
2 Treatment Areas- £299:
As above, it is almost certain you will need more than one area as each action creates a ripple effect.
3 Treatment Areas- £399:
This could be, jawline/jowl, cheeks and eyes/brows for example.
Half Face Lift - £350:
This would be a couple of areas that work in synergy with each other as the example above. So cheeks and jaw. Or, the neck and jowl/jaw area. Or, the forehead, brows and temple.
Full Face Lift - £450:
This is the full monty of lifts! We'll lift whatever can be lifted and threaded!
Any area that can and needs a thread of any kind will be treated.
Neck Lift - £300:
Always a forgotten part of the body, yet the one part that literally gives your age away! 
PDO threads can be so useful here and yield great results!

Different Types of PDO Threads

Mono 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

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.

Screw Threads

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 PDT 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.
