PDO Threads: The cosmetic revolution you’ve been waiting for
It comes as no surprise that most people wish they could slow the tell-tale signs of time, and reduce the lines of age on their skin. Before it felt as though procedures had to get surgically invasive before making a real immediate difference, however, these days it only needs to take 15-30 minutes, which is super easy and stress-free.
This is where PDO threads come in. Among other things, PDO threads are a part of the cosmetic revolution, changing the face of treatments across the world with their subtle, yet transformational effects. But before we get into how incredible this treatment is, let’s start with what they are.
What are PDO threads?
‘PDO’ literally stands for Polydioxanone which may not sound familiar, but it has been around for decades and has been used as a safe component of surgical procedures globally. However, it’s only more recently that its aesthetic advantages are being more widely explored.
They are primarily used as a highly effective restorer of a more youthful appearance. In some cases, depending on the method of treatment, it’s the non-invasive alternative to a face-lift!
Why are PDO threads necessary?
In the golden age of body positivity, there’s no better time to love the skin you’re in. However, over time our bodies begin to lose their natural elasticity provided through a combination of collagen and hyaluronic acid; our most important components for structure and water retention within our skin.
While there are many treatments available that may counteract the outer effects of ageing, such as injectable fillers and laser treatments, PDO threads provide a more substantial and longer-lasting outcome. While the former may improve the much needed youthful volume, texture smoothing and tone-improving treatments, PDO threads provide the solution to rejuvenate the structure of your younger self.
What PDO thread treatments are available?
Here at BLU Clinics, we provide two kinds of PDO thread treatments, both of which have their own benefits depending on your desired outcome.
PDO Rejuvenation Threads help to replace the collagen lost over time. This then results in a fuller, more youthful look, tightening your skin and rejuvenating your whole look over time. This treatment involves the use of mono threads, spiral threads and multi-threads to treat around your jawline, chin and midsection of your face.
The other treatment involves the use of PDO COG threads. These barbed threads have an immediate effect, lifting and tightening your face immediately. This provides the results of a facelift without any of the fuss but has outstanding results.
How long does the treatment take?
While this may vary slightly between patient and procedure but it should normally last from 15 minutes up to an hour. You will be taken through all the before and aftercare by our experts during your consultation, so you know exactly what to expect before your treatment.
The procedures are simple and won’t be a major part of your day – in fact, you should be able to return to your daily activities straight after. The recovery time is very quick due to the minimally invasive nature of the procedure.
How long does the treatment last?
One of the key things with most aesthetic treatments is that their longevity changes from person to person. While these may be taken on a case-by-case basis, there are general guidelines that can be provided, but it’s important to remember that this is subject to your body’s internal changes as to how long treatment can last.
The effects of the treatment can last anywhere from one year to three. However, you may wish to discuss this further, as you may wish to book in before the effects wear off to continue your collagen-boosting ‘face-lifting’ process.
PDO Thread treatments are the youth boost everyone’s been looking for. They produce instant results and long-lasting effects for minimum time and disruption to your day. You couldn’t look more amazing in less than an hour any other way.
There is no better alternative to a face-lift than PDO Thread treatments and what better way to look and feel more revitalised than to replace the exact thing your face is losing: collagen. It’s a no-brainer.
