PDO Mono Threads is an innovative treatment that stimulates collagen production and fights the signs of ageing for firmer, more youthful looking skin.

PDO Mono Threads are small polydioxanone (PDO) threads that are injected under one’s skin, typically in the facial area, to create a face-lift like result. 

The PDO threads, which are extremely thin and strong, are injected under the skin and into the tissue in the targeted area, which is usually either one’s face or neck. 

The threads are designed to trigger natural collagen production in the injected area, which tightens one’s skin and eliminates wrinkles or sagging skin.

PDO Mono Threads provide a safe and effective way to improve facial contours without surgery. Using high-strength absorbable threads, they create a collagen-stimulating micro-structure to enhance skin elasticity, improve firmness, and reduce wrinkles. Results are typically visible after a few weeks.

What are mono threads?

What a lot of people don’t know is that there are a number of different types of PDO threads. PDO stands for polydioxanone, which basically means that the thread is a medical grade thread that your body eventually metabolizes as it’s composed of a protein. And it’s super super thin—thinner than a hair.

The three main types of PDO threads are mono, cog and screw threads. So when we talk about the thread lift in terms of addressing skin laxity, we’re most likely going to use a cog thread which has tiny barbs on it that serves to lift the tissue just below the surface of the skin in the target area.

Mono threads, on the other hand, don’t have barbs. They’re smooth threads that are used more for their collagen producing and volumizing capabilities. Mono threads can also effectively lift and tighten the skin, but they’re used more as a revitalizing skin treatment that works to thicken the skin and improve on textural irregularities of the skin.

What Are The Benefits Of Pdo Mono Threads?

There are a lot of benefits to PDO mono threads. They can tighten and thicken the skin, improve skin texture, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. When the sutures dissolve, they stimulate your skin, improving natural collagen production. As collagen is one of the vital parts of keeping your skin healthy, this increased production level can have positive long term effects. But that’s not all.

Discomfort aftercare

Post procedure once the anesthesia has worn off, patients may experience some discomfort, that is normal.

It is also possible of the following reactions:

  • Small edema

  • Bruising

  • Asymmetry

  • Unevenness

  • Skin tightening

To ease the discomfort during the first two days, it is recommended to apply cold compress 3-4 times a day for 15 minutes in the area that was treated, and take arnica if needed.

The healing process depends largely on skin care during the recovery period, which should necessarily be treated with antiseptic solutions.

During the healing period, you should also not:

  • Have hot/solid food and hot drinks during the first three days

  • For two weeks any physical exertion and avoid excessive heat such as saunas/steam rooms etc

  • Large facial expressions if treatment was carried out on the face.

Who Are the Best Candidates for Mono thread?

If your age ranges between 25 and 55 years and you are looking to improve your skin texture and fine lines, you are a good candidate for mono thread treatments. PDO mono threads are not suitable for patients who have:

  • Autoimmune disease

  • Bleeding disorders

  • Uncontrolled diabetes

  • Expectant mothers

  • Illnesses and infections

  • Keloid scarring

How long does the procedure take?

One of the most incredible benefits is that treatment takes only 15 to 30 minutes. Expected treatment time varies on a case-to-case basis, but most of our clients are treated in under 20 minutes. 

After that, you are free to go back to your daily routine. Unlike a traditional facelift, there is no downtime or recovery associated with this treatment. Please allow 20 minutes before procedure for topical anesthetic to be applied.

So, is the process painful?

Patients may experience minimal pain during this procedure which can be numbed with local anaesthetic, and some tenderness may be experienced after the first few hours but this is a lot less than what a more complex surgical face-lifting procedure would cause.

This a more convenient, quick and safer treatment to many surgical procedures whilst still delivering the best results.
