First you need to understand how PDO threads work. A typical treatment involves placement of the desired number of threads. Various entry points are considered depending on the individual face shape and requirements. Local anaesthetic may be injected to make the procedure as pain free as possible. The threads are introduced with a needle or a blunt ended cannula which is removed once the threads have been positioned.
Threads which are used to reposition the skin will have the ends protruding after insertion and they are trimmed to below the level of the skin once the desired lift has been achieved. Smooth threads are anchored to lift and stimulate collagen.
Thread lifting is safe, but not entirely risk free, the practitioner will discuss all the risks and benefits with you at consultation and again prior to treatment.
This treatment is most suitable for those between the ages of 35 and 65 with moderate' sagging' or skin laxity. Surgery options or combined treatments will be recommended to some patients to ensure expectations can be met.
If, having had treatment, you are at all concerned about symptoms you were not expecting or not happy with, please contact the practitioner for advice.
