Top FAQS Threadlift for Jowls
What is a PDO thread lift?
A PDO thread lift is a cosmetic procedure that uses Polydioxanone (PDO) threads to tighten, lift and restructure the face. PDO threads have been used for decades. Medical practitioners used these threads as sutures during surgery. That is because PDO threads can be absorbed by your body over time. It is also called a non-surgical facelift, so you don’t have
to go under the knife to lift and tighten your skin.
It is a fast growing cosmetic technology all over the world. We have been performing these procedures for many years at The Manse
How does a PDO thread lift work?
PDO threads are anchored and inserted by our trained and qualified cosmetic injectors into the sub-dermal skin layers using tiny needles, instantly lifting, tightening, pulling back and resuspending areas that are sagging. After being placed, they will be absorbed by the deep beneath the dermal layers of your skin. This gives the skin a lifted, rejuvenated and boosted
What makes someone a good candidate for a PDO thread lift?
The ideal candidates for a PDO thread lift are at a stable and healthy weight and are concerned with mild to moderate skin sagging and wrinkles around the jowls.
The age of those having the procedure typically ranges from early 30’s to mid 50’s. You may not be the best candidate for a PDO thread lift if you have thin or excessively sagging skin around your jowls.
However, there are other treatments available in our clinic can address your concerns.
You are welcome to make a booking with one of our qualified cosmetic injectors to have a face-to face consultation to
discuss the options.
Are there different PDO options?
There are two different types that you can consider to use in your treatment.
One is called mono threads and another type is called screw threads. PDO mono threads are smooth, singular threads which are inserted into the skin in a mesh-like pattern to provide a type of scaffolding for the skin. As they gradually dissolve, they have the potential to induce
collagen production, re-define facial contour and tighten sagging jaw skin.
The procedure with mono threads does not involve a dramatic lift but rather a gradual skin tightening effect and cellular renewal, thanks to collagen stimulation.
Unlike mono threads, PDO screw threads have a spiral structure that allows for a more visible, immediate skin lift. As with the mono threads, screw threads also stimulate collagen production, offering a twofold benefit of immediate skin tightening and long-term skin rejuvenation. PDO screw threads are typically used in the areas where we need to add volume.
Can a PDO thread lift get rid of my jowls?
A PDO thread lift works extremely well for firming and lifting the skin the jowl area, which in turn enhances the definition of the jawline. Apart from the direct lifting effect, a POD thread lift also stimulates collagen production in the treated area. This helps the skin to become thicker and firmer.
It is an outstanding treatment for patients who have mild to moderate sagging the jowl area, or for those looking to prevent further sagging.
How long does a PDO threads lift take?
The PDO thread lift procedure takes between 30-60 minutes. However, when you include the time it takes for preparation and observation after the procedure, you should allow at least 2 hours.
Is a PDO thread lift painful?
A PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure, and it is less painful than traditional facelift surgery. Throughout the entire PDO thread treatment process, our cosmetic injectors will apply a numbing cream to the area where the thread will be placed to ensure you do not experience any significant discomfort, keeping your comfort in mind.
Are there any side effects associated with a PDO thread lift?
The numbers of threads placed in the skin will be determined by your anatomy. Compared to facelift surgery, a PDO thread lift procedure is well tolerated and has a lower risk of complications. However it is a medical procedure and has a number of risks associated.
- accumulation of blood (hematoma)
- visible sutures / threads protruding from the skin (especially in patients with thin skin)
- snapping of threads
- extrusion of the thread
Additionally, the potential to have a scar is low, The chance of an allergic reaction is extremely low as the threads are made from synthetic biological material.
When will I see my final PDO thread lift result?
You will see an immediate contour effect and improvement to skin laxity following a PDO thread lift treatment. Results will continue to improve over the next 8-12 weeks as the body produces more collagen and elastin. Within 6-8 months, you will experience your final results. Your face should look more firm, plump, smooth and younger-looking.
Results do vary from person to person, but most patients enjoy results that last for 12 months or longer.
How much does a PDO thread lift cost?
The cost of the PDO thread lift will depend on the number of treatment areas and threads
used. As a customized procedure, your price will be provided during your consultation.
