What to expect:
What to expect during the procedure is a complete consultation where we will review your health and medical history to ensure you are a suitable candidate to receive this treatment. After diagnosing the condition, our medical team will determine the type, number and position of Threads to place in the areas of concern and that will be required to achieve the desired results.
After disinfecting and anaesthetising the treatment areas, the PDO Threads are placed under the skin using a disposable cannula or micro-needle, which should be completely painless.
Treatment time varies depending on the condition being treated but generally is between 30 – 60 minutes, after which you will be able to resume your every day activities. If the lifting threads are used then results will be apparent immediately after the procedure. With all Thread types however, collagen production takes time and results will continue to improve over the following 2-3 months, lasting up to 2 years depending on the nature of the treatment provided. The Thread itself will dissolve completely after about 6 months.
Are there Potential side effects?Immediately after treatment, the area will still be numb for several hours and you should not eat, drink or manipulate the area until you regain sensation. The treatment area may be red swollen and bleed briefly and there may be some bruising.
After the anaesthetic wears off, there may be some transient pain and discomfort, especially a tight pulling feeling if you have had a lifting procedure. These feelings usually ease within a week and can be controlled with paracetamol.
Thankfully, PDO Threads have been shown to be very reliable and safe, yet all medical and dental procedures have the potential to cause unwanted side effects/complications. While problems are rare, the most common issues come from the injection process rather that the threads and can include redness, swelling, itching, bruising, bleeding and skin infection.
Cost of Treatment will vary, facial thread lift procedure is very dependant on each individual patient, the number of areas to be treated and the number of threads required.
