One aspect that deters people from cosmetic treatments is the time that is required both for the treatment itself and for recovery time. We are proud to offer the PDO thread facelift which not only gives the effect of a facelift without scars, scalpels or general anaesthesia, it can be done in just half an hour and requires little recovery time afterwards.
The PDO thread facelift utilises small cogs attached to dissolvable threads; these are inserted into the skin to lift sagging skin and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. It can be used all around the face including the eyes and jaw line, and can even be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the neck. As well as the immediate lifted effect of the threads, it also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin so the skin continues to heal itself and regain its bounce. PDO is short for Polydioxanone and it is a very strong filament fibre consisting of several threads twisted together and has been used in plastic surgery for over 30 years. These threads dissolve into the body’s tissue over 6-8 months but the effects last up to two years.
As the treatment is non-invasive and doesn’t require a general anaesthetic, you can pop into our Knightsbridge clinic to have your treatment and then go about your day. It’s so quick and convenient that it’s been dubbed the “lunch hour facelift”. Contact us today to find out how you can get started on your way to younger looking skin.
