PDO Threads & Cogs; The future of non surgical facelifts?

Threads and cogs are a revolutionary new(ish) technique which is actually fairly old(ish) in terms of its use in medicine.  Polydioxanone or PDO as it is more commonly referred to is a completely dissolvable material which has been used for both internal and external sutures for years.

Using very fine needles the PDO threads are inserted under the skin to give an immediate and miraculous lifting effect.  Not only that but it stimulates the body to produce natural collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid which continues to enhance the effects over a period of time post treatment.

The treatment is not entirely pain free as it involves injections, however, due to the application of anaesthetic cream the discomfort is kept to a minimum and most patients will attest to the minimality of their discomfiture.

With immediate results which last up to 2 years due to the further stimulation of the body’s natural resources (collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid), and minimal side effects, this treatment is the future of the non surgical face lift in our opinion.
