PDO - Threadlift

WHAT IS PDO threads?

PDO threads have rapidly become a popular minimally invasive alternative to surgical facelift procedures and have given rise to the emerging cat eye, V-line, and snatched jawline trends.

With its innovative patented technology in which the barbs are press-molded and configured in a 360-degree helical pattern, MINT™ PDO offers the most robust threads on the market. 

This revolutionary technology allows instant yet profound results while minimising pain & trauma – allowing patients to benefit from a shorter recovery time and providing an alternative for those who may not be ready for surgery or request a non-surgical option. 

PDO Threads can be used to lift and contour the face. MINT is a highly effective and safe method of repositioning sagging tissues and stimulating collagen that improves skin texture, fine lines, wrinkles, and elasticity for a firmer and tighter look.

In 30 – 45 mins, achieve contouring for a younger appearance without surgery and minimal downtime.

It provides a longer-lasting result than treatments such as dermal filler and anti-wrinkle injections. The procedure fills the gap between invasive surgery and injectables 

How do PDO threads work?

We just mentioned that cosmetic treatments today work with the body, and a PDO thread lift in particular stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. Once the treatment threads are in place, the body recognizes them as “foreign agents.” This isn’t bad; it is, in fact, a central component of treatment. It also reflects the body’s natural and constant efforts to protect itself from invaders.

In response to the threads, the body ramps up targeted production of collagen and elastin to heal what it perceives to be damage to the skin. These two proteins are elemental in supporting the skin, providing its firm and smooth texture, lifted appearance, and natural glow. In short, a PDO thread lift transforms and corrects your appearance on multiple levels.

The Threads Themselves

Of course, the threads themselves also deliver benefits. Made of medical-grade polydioxanone (PDO) that dissolves within the body, each thread is thinner than a strand of hair. Research confirms the technique of inserting these threads into areas of skin laxity relaxes tendons and muscles; in turn, the skin smooths out for a youthful appearance free of wrinkles and fine lines.

What areas can be treated?


CoolSculpting is generally viewed as a safer, non-invasive type of fat reduction surgery than traditional procedures, such as liposuction.
Most people do not feel anything during the procedure, aside from a tugging sensation where the skin is between the device’s two cooling panels.
As the procedure does not involve any cutting, tissue manipulation, or anaesthesia, most people do not need any recovery time and can immediately resume normal activities.
The only noticeable side effects of the procedure tend to be minor and occur only around the area of treatment. Most minor side effects reduce or go away within a few days to weeks after the procedure. It is normal, however, to experience numbness or loss of sensation in the treatment area for around a month.

Common immediate side effects of CoolSculpting include:
• redness
• firmness
• pinching sensation
• minor swelling
• tenderness
• bruising
• stinging
• tingling
• numbness
• skin sensitivity
• mild to moderate pain
• muscle cramping

A person may continue to experience these side effects for a few weeks after the procedure. Other common side effects that a person may experience in the first few weeks after CoolSculpting include:

• itchiness, especially a few days after the procedure
• diarrhoea, as dead fat cells are removed from the body
• a feeling of fullness in the throat after treatments involving the neck or chin region

When will I see results?

You may start to see changes as quickly as 3 weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after 12 weeks. Your body is still flushing fat cells and will continue doing so for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

This depends on your personal goals and treatment plan, which will be discussed during your consultation before the treatment. You can get your Fat freezing liposuction in Liverpool and London.
