The science behind PDO Mono Threads How do PDO Mono Threads work?

PDO Mono Threads are made from an absorbable material called Polydioxanone. This material has been used in surgical operations for over 50 years with an excellent safety profile.

PDO Mono threads are carefully inserted into the subcutaneous layer of the skin to create an intensive collagen stimulation process. These dissolvable threads act as a scaffold for your bodies own natural collagen fibre production. The threads slowly dissolve over 6 months, leaving behind a mesh network of collagen fibres that are responsible for visible skin tightening and rejuvenation that lasts out to 12-24 months.

The Benefits of PDO Mono Threads

PDO Mono Threads have been shown to have incredible benefits for the following indications:

  • Skin tightening and lifting
  • Filling creases including nasolabial folds and accordion lines
  • Improving skin thickness and quality
  • Outlining the lips for a natural enhancement without the need for lip filler
  • Creating an intensive collagen stimulation to rejuvenate the skin
  • Lifting jowls/cheeks/brows and marionette lines

They can also be used for loose problem areas on any part of the body.

How many PDO Mono Threads do I need?

PDO threads can be used to treat a multitude of face and body problem areas. Each area will require a different amount of threads as a baseline, with more severe problem areas requiring a greater number of threads. As a general guide the number of threads required for each area includes:

  • Smokers lines – 20 threads
  • Under eye region – 20-30 threads
  • Nasolabial folds – 20-30 threads
  • Cheeks/accordial/smile lines – 40-60 threads
  • Lower cheeks – 30-60 threads
  • Jawline/chin – 30 – 60 threads
  • Full neck – 50-100 threads
  • Temples to volumise 10-15 threads per side
  • Forehead – 30-50 threads

This is a rough guide and may not be suitable for all patients. Some may elect with their cosmetic professional to have less or more than the guides listed above.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does PDO Mono Thread-lifting take?

PDO Mono thread lifting takes between 10-30 minutes depending on the number of threads placed.

How is the PDO Mono Thread lift performed?

Your PDO Mono Threadlift procedure starts with a comprehensive consultation with one of our expert cosmetic clinicians. Following this you will have numbing cream applied for the appropriate time frame, then your skin will be cleansed prior to insertion of your threads. Following your cosmetic clinician will expertly place the threads to treat your problem areas. A topical antiseptic cream is then applied and you will be directed to ice the area for 10 minutes every 2 hours on the day of treatment.

Are PDO Mono Threads painful?

The pain associated with PDO mono threads is minimal. With topical numbing cream and the option of happy gas, the procedure can be essentially painless.

What are the risks of a PDO Mono Threadlift?

The most common risks include:

  • Swelling- can last 1-2 days and is almost always mild
  • Bruising – if it occurs lasts 3-5 days and can be helped with our dermatology grade lasers and LED lights

Rare risks

  • Infection – Antiseptic cream is applied immediately after treatment to reduce this risk

The absolute best in Sydney. I would not go anywhere else to get anything done. Everyone I have encountered at this clinic has been so extremely warm and professional and put in so much time and effort to truly achieve your desired outcome. Can’t recommend this place enough, do not waste your money elsewhere.
