PDO Thread Lift Birmingham

TREATMENT OVERVIEW

Polydioxanone (PDO threads) are special medical grade threads made of protein. A thread lift is less expensive than a traditional facelift and has a much lower downtime. There are two types of PDO threads available on the face and body to support and lift the skin.

 

MONO PDO THREADS

This type of thread is not for lifting or treating sagginess. However, it is designed to perform revitalisation and collagen stimulation to improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Once PDO mono threads are inserted into the skin, they activate collagen synthesis to tighten and rejuvenate the skin. Wrinkles and fine lines are gradually improved. The results are seen for four months after initial treatments and can last for a few years.

 

COG PDO THREADS

The most recent development in thread lifting is COG threads. As opposed to MONO threads, this type has a much stronger lifting effect because of its structure and shape. It induces a higher ironic inflammatory reaction by attaching itself to tissues of the skin holding it in place.  It causes higher collagen production and fibroblast conversion during the wound healing process. It is one of the best cosmetic, skin tightening and lifting procedures. This type of thread is used for fox eye and brow lifting techniques but also cheeks and jawline.

TREATMENT INFORMATION

Look no further than Starbrows for PDO Thread Lift in Birmingham. You will have a full consultation with our highly skilled team, and we will take you through each stage of your treatment. We will discuss your goals and help to manage expectations. The treatment takes typically 60 minutes+. Local anaesthetic gets injected into the treated area to soothe any discomfort that may appear during the treatment. The length and type of threads are chosen accordingly to the desired result. Fine thread is affixed to a cannula needle (21G – 30G). The needle is inserted into the subcutaneous layer of the skin. When it’s taken out, the thread remains in the skin. This treatment triggers the natural regenerative process and mechanical stimulation of wound healing and tissue contraction. The thread gets dissolved over time, and new collagen fibres rain in the area. Book your PDO Thread Lift in Birmingham now!
