What is a Thread Lift?

A Thread Lift is a non-surgical treatment , which uses a fine specialised thread to pull your skin tighter to lift and smooth the skin on your face, neck or jowls. This revolutionary treatment offers you the results of a surgical facelift without the pain, recovery time or risks associated with surgery.

How does it work?

During the procedure, the ‘threads’ are inserted under the surface of the skin into the sub-dermis.

These tiny threads, which have tiny barbs,  anchor to the skin, keeping it in place as the threads are lifted, to create a smoother and tighter appearance.

Made from PDO (Polydioxanone), the threads also stimulate a collagen production response over time to add further firmness.

Lifting and tightening your face gives the skin back its strength and elasticity and provides you with a noticeably younger-looking appearance.

Why Choose A Thread Lift?

A Thread Lift isn’t just any thread lift. PDO Cog Threads, with barbs are the only Thread Lift that provides an immediate physical lifting effect, as well as a biological lift by stimulating the natural production of new collagen.

Our threads are made from a special substance called PDO (polydioxanone). This substance has been used in the medical field for many years in suture thread, orthopedics, plastic surgery, drug delivery, cardiovascular applications, and tissue engineering.  It’s highly compatible with the body making negative reactions or allergy unlikely.

Polydioxanone helps to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production processes, giving the skin back its strength and elasticity.

The Thread biodegrade over time a period of 12-18 months, when a new treatment may be needed.

This unique combination of mechanical lifting and cellular regeneration is what makes the PDO Thread Lift so powerful, giving people immediately noticeable results and long-lasting regeneration.
