PDO Mono Thread

Another effective method of non-surgical facial tightening is PDO Mono Threads which can be used for advanced collagen induction, resulting in thickening and tightening of the face, neck, around the eyes, and on the body.

How Do Mono Threads Work?

PDO (Polydioxanone) Mono Threads are thin, dissolvable sutures which are placed below the skin’s surface. Many small, hollow needles containing the threads are inserted into the dermis, where the threads are deposited so that they can work their magic. Once these threads are detected by the body, the collagen-production cascade is initiated, and new collagen fibres are formed around the threads. These mono threads slowly dissolve over a period of 3-4 months, leaving nothing but newly-formed collagen structures and thicker, stronger, tighter, more resilient skin.

Is The Procedure Painful?

PDO Mono Threads require many threads to be inserted into the area, which means many injection sites. There therefore may be some discomfort depending on the size and location of the treatment area. This discomfort is reduced through the application of a topical numbing agent prior to treatment.

Is There Downtime?

Consistent with other injectable treatments, there are risks of bruising and swelling. Some experience puffiness following PDO Mono Threads. It is likely you will experience some tenderness at the site for 7-10 days following, which is very normal and will subside. There is also a small risk of infection if post-treatment care is not carefully followed. This includes avoiding heat for 48 hours post-treatment, avoiding touching the area, and skipping intense exercise that could inflame the tissue or cause sweat which accumulates bacteria.

When Will I See Results?

The primary outcome of threads is collagen formation, and this process takes several months. This means that skin tightening can be seen after 2-3 months. The results are also cumulative – several treatments are generally recommended, so your complete results should be seen at least 3 months following your final treatment.
