Having been trained by leading consultants and surgeons in the art of thread lifting, Jodie has been carrying out PDO thread lifts (aka Non-surgical Face Lift) for over two years and developed her own unique technique and combination treatment to get the best results for her patients.
Jodie has found the best results are achieved when you carry out the 10 point face lift with combined treatment of muscle relaxants and filler for volumising and medical grade skincare.
Which areas can be treated with PDO Threads?
The threads are extremely versatile and can be used all around the face and neck. They can treat vertical and horizontal wrinkles on the forehead, sagging brows, drooping cheeks, pronounced nasolabial (nose to mouth) and marionette (corner of mouth to chin) folds, sagging jawline & neck and folds & wrinkles on the chin.
They are also useful for areas on the body such as the abdomen, knees, breasts and back of arms.
How does the non surgical face lift work?
The threads used in the Thread Lift are made of soluble PDO (polydioxanone) which is a material that has been used in medicine for many years, mainly in surgery. However, research has shown that PDO relaxes muscles and tendons, and also stimulates the neocollagenesis process, which encourages the production of new collagen in the skin. PDO also stimulates the synthesis of elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin, both of which are vital for keeping the skin looking plump and youthful.
The PDO thread is inserted into the skin through a very fine needle. Depending on the area to be treated, the thread is introduced into either the skin itself, the subcutaneous fat, or the muscle. A lifted appearance can be seen immediately following the treatment, however, the results will improve in the following days and weeks as the PDO stimulates neocollagenesis, which in turn produces collagen. The overall texture of the skin is improved; it becomes thicker, tighter and firmer and fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed away.
Different thicknesses and types of thread are used for different areas of the face. Short, non-barbed threads can be used to treat fine lines on the face, as well as tightening and lifting areas such as the jaw line and neck. Thicker “cogs” or barbed threads can give a significant improvement to the mid and lower face. Sometimes we will use a combination of both non-barbed and barbed threads to give best results.
The threads are naturally absorbed by the body in six to eight months, however, the effect of the treatment can last for up to two years.
What results can I expect from the PDO Thread Lift?
The PDO threads will give the skin an immediate, natural improvement in appearance. After about 10-14 days, the process of natural body protein synthesis begins and continues over a period of two years, keeping the texture of the skin smooth and supple.
What’s are the common risk factors?
Bruising can happen. The degree of bruising varies not only depending on the area being treated, but also from patient to patient. However, you do need to be aware that considerable bruising could possibly occur, and plan your social calendar or work commitments around this.
What is the procedure of a non surgical face lift?
A full medical history is taken and full consultation given where you can discuss your concerns and treatment outcomes. Jodie will then talk you through the options. If you are suitable for treatment and wish to go ahead an appointment is made for the treatment.
On the day of your treatment topical numbing cream will be applied and this will take effect in 20-30 minutes. The procedure is then started. Local anaesthetic is used with the cogs to make the procedure almost pain free. Once the treatment has been completed a post treatment mask is applied for 20-40 minutes as this soothes the skin. You will then be given your aftercare products. The whole procedure takes around 60 minutes.
