PDO Thread Lift Treatment With Expert Cosmetic Doctors In Melbourne

This thread lift treatment became popular in Korea and has since recently started to spread to the rest of the world. Many people find it an excellent alternative for them over some surgical options for their cosmetic goals. Aesthetic Studio Clinic is always looking to offer cutting edge treatments to our patients so of course, we have it available to our patients. If you’re already familiar with thread lift treatments or not, you may find this new approach an interesting procedure that may be the right fit for you.

What is a PDO Thread Lift?

This procedure involves introducing a number of very fine threads in a target treatment area. The goal of doing this is not just to provide a lift from the threads themselves, but as the threads later and dissolve are replaced with collagen by the body that assists in providing a further lift after the threads are no longer there to provide the direct support. This results in lifting and tightening of the skin in a precisely targeted way, and the results can be very impressive.

How Long Does the Procedure Take?

This depends mostly on the number of threads that are going to be applied and the area being targeted, as well as the skill of the practitioner. A typical treatment will take 30-60 minutes for a full face of threads. So even with a decent amount of threads time cost is usually quite low.

What Kinds of People Are Most Suitable for This Type of Treatment?

Mostly anyone can benefit from this type of treatment. If you are looking at this as a preventative treatment to reduce facial sagging or if you are younger and just looking for a more lifted look. Either way, this can be a suitable option for you to consider to reach your aesthetic targets.

Is This Treatment Painful?

Most patients in regards to pain fairly well tolerate this treatment. To further reduce the pain a local aneasthetic can be applied or numbing cream to further reduce any discomfort. If you are concerned that you may struggle with this aspect as you have a low pain tolerance, speak to your practitioner about what can be done to help in this regard.

What Side Effects Are Commonly Associated with This Treatment?

  • Brow
  • Inner Thighs
  • Jawline
  • Mid Face
  • Lower Face
  • Inner Arm

Most Suitable Areas for PDO Threat Lift Treatments

Bruising and swelling are the most common, though other rare side effects can occur. When you have a consultation before the procedure be sure to listen carefully to the risks involved to make an informed decision for not just this kind of thread lift procedure but for any cosmetic procedures you are considering as everything has risks involved.

Depending on where threads are applied and other factors such as medications you take you may be at increased risk of specific side effects. Swelling generally will dissipate in around 48 hours, if bruising occurs which is less common it will usually resolve in around a week.

How Long Does a PDO Thread Lift Last?

This kind of treatment has a lasting time of between 12-24 months. Thanks to the threads in this type of thread lift not being anchored and being considered floating threads, it’s easier to top them up at any time. The small tension from each thread causes the lift, so there’s less of a feeling of tightness, instead far more of just the appearance of tightness.
