PDO Mono Rejuvenating threads are used to improve the condition of the skin.
PDO Threads treat superficial imperfections such as textural irregularities and fine lines, as well as improve facial contour when combined with other modalities.
As we age, we lose facial volume through bone resorption, muscle atrophy, fat loss and redistribution, resulting in noticeable changes in the overlying skin with sagging, loss of skin tone and contour irregularities.
Combined with the gradual loss of collagen and elastin, the skin develops wrinkles, becomes looser and begins to sag which further contributes to a tired and ageing face.
PDO Mono Rejuvenating Threads are not a traditional ‘thread lift’.
PDO Mono threads work to target the changes of ageing by providing support and stimulating collagen in the skin over a period of time, with a slow breakdown rate and long-lasting results.
The components of our range of PDO Mono rejuvenating threads actively work to stimulate collagen production which, over time, works to increase the volume and restore the shape of the face in a natural way.
PDO Mono Rejuvenating threads are made of a fine synthetic material called Polydioxanone (PDO) with a long history of safe and reliable use in medicine and surgery such as in sutures to close wounds. This material will dissolve over time and is completely eliminated from the body.
Mono Rejuvenating threads
These threads (called Mono threads) work to rejuvenate the skin by tightening and reconditioning. They can work to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and skin texture by stimulating collagen.
Mono threads are fine and thin lengths of PDO and do not have barbs or cogs which can cause underlying damage to the skin. They are loaded into a fine needle and inserted into the skin. These Mono threads are either single threads or multiple threads twisted together. The more PDO in the thread, the greater the collagen stimulation, so certain threads are better suited to certain areas.
Mono Rejuvenating PDO threads can be used to smooth, support and rejuvenate numerous areas. Treatment indications include:
- Eyebrow rejuvenation and temples
- Frown and forehead lines
- Under eyes and tear trough
- Cheek contour and accordion lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Lip lines and lip contour
- Jawline and necklines
- Generalised skin tightening and reconditioning across the entire face
Please note Dr Kate no longer offers “lifting” thread lifts and prefers the use of PDO Mono Rejuvenation threads combined with dermal fillers for full-face rejuvenation.
Those with moderate to severe skin laxity, sagging or similar concerns may be referred to a plastic surgeon to explore surgical options in addition to energy-based treatment.
