PDO Threads

Appointment time: 15-45 minutes

Recovery time: slight swelling, maybe bruising (smooth threads), can return to work/driving straight away

Pain: slight sting but numbing cream can be used


How long do PDO threads last?

Smooth PDO threads last about 6-12 months, whereas cog threads last 3-6 months.


What areas can I have treated?

Threads can be used pretty much anywhere on the body, although the main area is the face.


How do I prepare for treatment?

Our practitioner will go through all specific pre-care and after-care in detail during your consultation, but it is advised to stop taking blood thinning medication such as ibuprofen and aspirin at least 3-4 days before your appointment. Please arrive at your appointment with no makeup on.


How do PDO threads work?

There are 2 different types of PDO threads - smooth and cog. Smooth threads work by carefully inserting a small needle underneath the skin's surface, which when removed, leave behind a very thin thread. The thread will trigger the skin's healing process, therefore increasing collagen and elastin production. Cog threads are slightly different. They are used to lift sagging skin and facial features.
