As we age, our skin starts to produce less collagen, resulting in a loss of structure and elasticity. If you’re looking for a minimally invasive treatment that addresses these concerns, then we highly recommend our latest treatment, PDO Mono threads! Mono threads are an innovative approach to give you firm and rejuvenated skin using your skin’s natural ability to synthesise collagen
. Keep reading to discover why this treatment could be the perfect anti-ageing treatment for you.
What Are PDO Mono Threads?
PDO Mono threads
are a cosmetic injectable treatment designed to rejuvenate and firm the skin. They are short, biodegradable filaments coated in an absorbable polymer called polydioxanone
, about 30mm in length and wrapped around very fine needles. This absorbable material has been used in cardiac and paediatric surgeries for over 50 years. Multiple needles (or threads) are inserted painlessly under the skin, triggering the fibroblasts to boost collagen production. When removing the needles, the threads are left behind to be absorbed by the body to stimulate this collagen and elastin to firm and smooth the targeted area. The stimulation of natural collagen produces a tightening and anti-ageing effect on the skin. The results? An incredible youthful, lifted appearance that lasts 6 to 12 months after the treatment.
PDO mono threads are often confused with a ‘thread lift’, which is a different non-surgical technique that provides results akin to a facelift by pulling threads through the face until the skin is taut.
What are the Benefits of a PDO Mono Threads Treatment?
There are so many amazing benefits that make PDO mono threads a must-try for anyone looking for anti-ageing treatments.
Lifts, Tightens and Rejuvenates
The treatment stimulates collagen in the subcutaneous layer of skin that provide lasting anti-ageing benefits. You will immediately notice that sagging, fine lines and wrinkles are drastically improved. The firming effect restores youth to your skin without going under a scalpel.
Addresses Several Areas
The treatment can benefit areas including the cheeks, the lower part of the face, jaw and jowls. You can target specific areas of concern or treat multiple areas in one session.
PDO mono threads are less invasive than facelift surgery and provide incredibly natural results that last between 6 to 12 months. You can safely continue using skincare products 24 hours after the treatment as normal and you can also combine this treatment with other cosmetic injectables
such as dermal filler
Results Improve After 6-8 Weeks
While the results from PDO mono threads typically last up to 12 months, you will see further improvements after two to three months as your body produces new, healthy collagen.
What Can I expect During the Treatment?
Before commencing any treatment at CBB BLVD, we provide our clients with a comprehensive consultation to see if mono threads are right for them. All cosmetic injectable treatments, including our threads treatment, are performed by our registered nurse, Liam. A topical anaesthetic will first be applied to numb the treatment site to ensure minimal discomfort. Then, the polymer threads are inserted into the skin using cannulas. Depending on the areas to be treated and the number of threads you have opted for, treatment time can take up to 60 minutes.
Is There Aftercare or Downtime?
After your treatment, you may experience some swelling, bruising and tenderness that resolves in a few days. There is little downtime or aftercare required, however, avoid wearing makeup, oil-based moisturiser and sunscreen for the first 24 hours post-treatment. Light makeup can be worn a day after the treatment. We also recommend avoiding workout out 24-48 hours post-treatment, saunas or heat treatments for up to 3 weeks and facials or facial massages for 5 days.
Who Is This Suitable For?
This treatment is suitable for anyone wishing to prevent or reduce sagging, wrinkles and fine lines. PDO mono threads are also ideal for those looking to plump and firm their skin. This treatment is not suitable for those with bleeding disorders, some auto-immune diseases and uncontrolled diabetes.
