PDO Threads Face Lift in Norwich
PDO Threads 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 3-4 months, but still continue to produce 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.
PDO threads are fast becoming the ultimate in an alternative to expensive facial surgery...

Will I Be A Good Candidate For PDO Threads?
Assessing correctly who is and isn't a good candidate for thread lifts is the most important part of the consultation for me.
However, before you go ahead and book a consultation, below are my 4 main criteria I use to ensure the outcome is going to be in line with your goals and that you will be a good candidate for the procedure:
1. Age: The ideal candidate will be between 30-55yrs and have mild to moderate skin laxity. Threads will not work if you have a lot of loose skin, saggy skin, heavy jowl pockets or thin skin.
You would first need to tighten the skin with bio-stimulation and/or a full face of mono threads (Glassy Skin Treatment £400).
2. Realistic expectations: If your expecting a lot of skin to be pulled back or the outcome to be extreme, then surgery (face lift) would be a better option for you.
If you are however looking for a subtle refresh that is noticeable (for you), yet natural looking and makes you look more tight, fresh and awake, then you will be a good candidate.
3. Heaviness/fullness around the face: Non-surgical PDO face/neck lifts work by pulling and repositioning the fat pads - NOT the skin as most people think.
If you have a fuller, more rounded face or weight on your face (mainly on the jawline/neck), then you will not be a good candidate as you will not get a good sustainable lift.
4. Someone comfortable with having procedures on their face: Although a PDO threads lift is classed as 'non-surgical', it is still a procedure to be taken seriously (no matter where you go) as it is classed as 'non-surgical', but 'semi-invasive' face lift - essentially, it is one step down from a full surgical face lift going under the knife!
There is downtime on this procedure and although we try to make you as comfortable as possible during the procedure, post-procedure, you can expect bruising, swelling, tightness from the pulling of the threads and being a little uncomfortable for a few weeks afterwards.
Different Types of PDO 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?
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.
Can a PDO thread face lift be achieved with filler?
Is a PDO thread face lift procedure safe?
Will I have a scar?
Is the treatment painful?
You will be provided with a local anaesthetic (lidocaine) injections.
What is the downtime?
How long will the results last?
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!
