Tighten, lift and smooth tired sagging facial features!

Rejuvenating PDO Threads are the newest, most exciting skin tightening treatment to hit our shores in years. Kept secret in Korea for what seems like an eternity, this whole new approach to skin tightening is perfect for those wanting a minimally invasive natural result. As we age, we lose facial volume through bone loss, muscle loss, fat loss and redistribution, resulting in noticeable changes in the overlying skin with sagging, loss of skin tone and contour irregularities. Combined with the gradual loss of collagen and elastin, the skin develops wrinkles, becomes looser and begins to sag which further contributes to a tired and ageing face. Rejuvenating PDO Threads can be used to tighten, rejuvenate, volumize mild hollowing without the need for dermal filler and prevent the skin from future sagging.

PDO Threads have been shown to have incredible benefits for the following indications: Skin tightening and lifting, Filling creases including nasolabial folds and accordion lines, Improving skin thickness and quality, Outlining the lips for a natural enhancement without the need for lip filler, Creating an intensive collagen stimulation to rejuvenate the skin, Lifting jowls/cheeks/brows and marionette lines. They can also be used for loose problem areas on any part of the body.

PDO threads are made of a fine synthetic material called Polydioxanone (PDO) with a long history of safe and reliable use in medicine and surgery such as in sutures to close wounds. The PDO threads are either single threads or multiple threads twisted together and loaded into a fine needle and are carefully inserted into the subcutaneous layer of the skin to create an intensive collagen stimulation process. These dissolvable threads act as a scaffold for your bodies own natural collagen fiber production. The threads slowly dissolve over 2-3 months, leaving behind a mesh network of collagen fibers that are responsible for visible skin tightening and rejuvenation that lasts out to 6-12 months. The more PDO in the thread, the greater the collagen stimulation, so certain threads are better suited to certain areas.

Unlike traditional thread lifts, where there are very few suitable candidates, Rejuvenating PDO threads are suitable for most skin types and concerns, provided there are realistic expectations about the treatment outcomes.  Occasionally, facial volumization with dermal fillers is required prior to or on the same day as the PDO threads in order to obtain optimal results. 

Rejuvenating PDO threads can be used anywhere on the Face and Neck including: Forehead, Cheeks, Brows, Under eye, Nasolabial folds, Jawline and jowls, Neck. Threads can also be used anywhere on the body requiring skin tightening. Favorite areas include the abdomen, arms and above the knees.

The cost varies on the number of threads required for an optimal result and the indication for treatment. A full quote will be provided on consultation. The below are guides only. Our practitioners utilize the FDA cleared smooth and twisted PDO threads from VSoft.

PDO threads are made up of a material called polydioxanone. This is an absorbable, flexible material that is as thin as a few hairs. This type of material has been used in Cardiac and Pediatric surgery for at least 50 years with an excellent safety profile.

When inserted into the subcutaneous tissues of the skin, it creates an intensive collagen stimulation that produces visible and long lasting tightening of the skin.


After receiving a topical anaesthetic, PDO Threads will be inserted using a micro-needle or cannula. The treatment is a highly customized procedure and your practintioner will work closely with you in order to achieve optimal results.

You will begin to see results in 6 weeks which continue to improve over the next 2 to 6 months as new collagen is produced. Although the PDO Threads will slowly dissolve, you will continue to see results for up to 12 months.

Mono Threads help to create new collagen that supports your face and creates a tightening effect that lasts 6–12 months after your treatment.

The results vary depending on lifestyle factors such as smoking, alcohol, exercise, etc. It may be recommended to have another PDO Thread treatment six months after the initial treatment to maintain the tightening effects.

The time of your treatment will vary based on many factors—such as the size of your treatment area — but typically takes between 45 and 60 minutes.

Mono Thread treatments may produce swelling and bruising in the area that has been treated, which will subside after a few days.


You may not be a good candidate if you are pregnant or breast feeding, have an active infection in the area to be treated, or have an allergy to lidocaine. Your aesthetic nurse injector will thoroughly review your health history and contraindications with you prior to treatment.


Avoid Alcohol and smoking. Schedule procedure at least one week prior to a special occasion or event. Avoid taking anti-inflammatory medication (consult Doctor prior, if necessary). Avoid treatment if you have active infections in the treatment area


Mild bruising and swelling is to be expected and will resolve in a few days. Ice may be applied to soothe area of treatment. Most clients find they can return to work the following day without any concern, however, we advise to avoid any important events for up to 2 weeks to allow any bruising or swelling to subside. Discomfort may last longer in some individuals and those who have multiple threads placed at once. We advise a soft diet and limiting the degree of mouth opening until these feelings of discomfort have subsided. Avoid exaggerated facial movements like chewing or yawning for two weeks. No dental surgery for four weeks. It is important not to touch your face or manipulate the threads at all.  Do not apply oil-based moisturizer or makeup for the next 24 hours. When applying makeup over the next five days, do so gently in the treated area. As PDO threads are “heat sensitive” we do not recommend any heat-based treatments such as radiofrequency for 6-8 weeks. Aftercare is advised including avoidance of facial procedures, heavy exercise and sleeping on your sides or stomach. Sleep on your back and elevate your head for the first three nights. Full aftercare instructions will be provided following the treatment in order to minimize potential side effects and maximize the results in your individual case. A review appointment may be scheduled for 8  weeks post-treatment at which further treatment (either more threads or an alternative treatment such as dermal fillers) may be required to achieve the desired outcome.
