PDO Thread Lift Melbourne

As our face ages, we lose collagen and elastin in our skin. This results in a loss of volume and elasticity in the face and neck causing the face to droop or sag over time, making the face look older and tired. At Appearance Clinic Dr Diana performs a specialist non-surgical treatment called a thread lift. A thread lift is designed to lift or elevate the skin, achieving a natural, tighter and younger-looking appearance.

If you’re looking for a way to restore your face to a younger look in a more natural way than face lift surgery, or you are not at the stage of face lift surgery, this procedure could be right for you.

What is a thread lift?

A thread lift is a popular procedure for men and women, which is essentially a safe and convenient non-surgical alternative to a face lift or neck lift, without the significant cost and downtime of surgery. PDO threads are placed under the skin to reposition the skin at a higher or lifted level to give your face and/or neck a refreshed, rejuvenated look of younger, tighter looking skin.

One of the major benefits of a thread lift over face lift surgery is that a thread lift is designed to complement the natural contours of the face, leaving a more natural, refreshed look. This is opposed to surgery which aims to reshape or distort the facial features, often resulting in a different look. If you are looking for a more natural-looking outcome that still looks like your face, a thread lift is potentially for you.

PDO Mono Threads

PDO Mono threads, also known as short threads are superficial treatments used by Dr Diana to target fine lines and skin texture improvement. Mono threads have no associated lift, and are used similar to other collagen stimulating products, to tighten and smooth skin.

Key information on PDO mono threads:

  • Mono treads are shorter threads, usually 25mm to 60mm long
  • Multiple threads are placed tightly over an area that has lost volume, but may be less amenable to other therapies eg fine wrinkles under the eyes, deep nasolabial folds, smile lines.
  • The threads commonly used in Australia and TGA approved are made of a material called PDO – this is dissolved over some months by your body, stimulating the production of collagen in the process.
  • These may be used along any areas that traditionally were difficult or tricky to treat eg under eyes, along smile lines, along neck lines, along stretch marks on the body

PDO Lifting Threads (long threads)

PDO lifting threads are also know as long threads and are used by Dr Diana to lift and reposition sagging tissue. The threads also stimulate the patient’s own collagen production as they dissolve in the months post treatment. This treatment is often referred to as a non-surgical face lift procedure.

Key information on PDO lifting threads:

  • Dr Diana uses PDO lifting threads which are TGA approved in Australia.
  • The PDO long threads are similar to mono threads above in terms of longevity.
  • The major benefit of long or lifting threads is to lift and reposition sagging tissue back to the position they used to sit years before. As the PDO threads dissolve under the skin in the coming months they stimulate the body’s production of collagen in the treated areas.

What other treatments can you combine with a thread lift?

This is a very popular treatment for men also. After all, everyone’s skin sags as we get older. The reason this is such a popular procedure for men is because of the natural results we achieve with a thread lift. Whether you’re a man or a woman, if you are looking for a way to restore your face to a younger look in a natural way, this procedure could potentially be right for you.
Results usually last for 18 months or longer depending on a number of factors. In your consultation we will be able to give you a more accurate assessment and discuss potential results.
The overwhelming feedback is that friends and colleagues comment on the refreshed look and ask if it’s due to getting more sleep. A thread lift by Dr Diana at Appearance Clinic in Melbourne will make your face and neck look younger and more refreshed, but in a natural way where your skin is tightened and follows your facial features.

Although this is a minimally invasive procedure, there will be some downtime, swelling and possibly bruising that usually lasts 24 to 48 hours. You won’t have any bandages or scars to heal, most patients return to daily routines straight away.
There is no scarring associated with thread lifting.
Typically, your thread lift procedure is completed within an hour and you can return home within a few hours.
