Cosmetic (PDO) Facial Contouring

Everyone is talking about the new Mini Thread Treatments, but what exactly are they? 

The treatment involves implanting multiple polydioxanone mini threads to create a vectorial network that acts as support for the tissue. It produces an immediate lifting effect, while also stimulating natural collagen production.

Here we answer some of the most frequently asked questions

Which threads should I ask my doctor for?

There are a variety of types of tensing threads: single filament, double, twisted, barbed, etc. Your doctor will decide on the most appropriate type based on your particular characteristics and aims. The simplest threads-single filament or smooth threads – produce a regenerative and firming effect that visibly improves skin quality and texture. Barbed or hooked threads have the most powerful lifting effect. We recommend using both types in different sessions.

Is the treatment painful?

Mini thread treatment Is virtually pain.free. Mini threads are loaded in very fine and extremely sharp needles, making implantation virtually painless. Only a topical anaesthetic is required, with no risk of any sort.

Are there any side effects?

Only slight inflammation which quickly goes away. You can continue wIth daily life immediately.

Are the results natural?

Mini thread treatment makes it possible to regenerate and firm the skin naturally, without changing your features or facial expression. You’re still you, just a younger-looking and more revitalised you. All with no need for surgery.

How many threads do I need?

The number of threads required will depend on the individual’s characteristics and the areas to be treated. Obtaining a regenerative effect that brightens skin and improves texture requires a large number of threads.

When are the results visible?

Results can be seen immediately. Mini thread treatment repositions sagging skin. providing a more youthful appearance. At this point the  regenerative action kicks in, increasing oxygen supply to the cells and stimulating collagen and elastin production. After a month or two. skin will be younger.firmer and brighter looking.

How long do the results last?

Depending on the individual patient’s metabolism and the type of thread used, reabsorption can take between 5 months and a year. Regenerative action will continue throughout this period and the effects will last for several months afterwards. In order to maintain the results, you can visit for periodic check.ups.
