The face is the most visible part of our body, and hence, the symptoms of ageing are most apparent on your face. You will start to look different and as a result, this can affect your confidence and can make you shy away from social situations. A facelift may be a perfect solution for your aged and tired-looking face. Consider getting a PDO thread lift Melbourne at this point.

The medical cosmetic industry is advancing at a meritorious rate as more and more people are opting for cosmetic solutions for their beauty and wellness problems.

Skinclub PDO Thread Lifts Procedure

A thread lift treatment is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in 2022. A thread lift is essentially the non-surgical version of a facelift. In this treatment, temporary sutures are made on your face using PDO threads to give your face a subtle and natural-looking lift. The results are easily distinguishable, but not as sharp as facelift surgery. The results from a thread lift procedure are much more precise and natural.

A thread lift has the power to reverse the effects of ageing on your facial skin. Facelift surgery does the same thing only in an invasive surgical method. A thread lift is much safer and risk-free. Instead of surgically removing the saggy and loose part of your facial skin, like in facelift surgery, a thread lift tightens up the loose skin with sutures. The loose skin is not cut out but suspended and held firmly with the help of dissolvable threads. Hence, your skin looks firm and tight and the effects of ageing are not visible there.

Three types of threads are commonly used for thread lift Melbourne procedures –

PLA threads – 

These threads are FDA-approved components used in a silhouette soft thread lift. PLA threads are also effective for not only lifting and tightening sagging facial skin but also for adding volume and plumpness to your face. 

PLA threads are made from a biocompatible polymer derived from lactic acid that has been used in many applications such as orthopaedic pins and sutures.

PCA threads –

These threads came out much after PDO threads. PCA threads are synthetically made bio-absorbable, monofilament suspension threads. They work by regenerating collagen over a longer time than PDO and PLA threads. 

They leave behind a collagen structure that provides support for the skin, tightens the skin and prevents it from sagging. Due to the fibrotic reaction caused by the threads, the lifting and stretching action will continue even after the threads have been resorbed. 

PDO threads – 

PDO threads are the most commonly and widely used threads for thread lifts in Melbourne. They were invented the oldest. These threads are made of a protein polymer called Polydioxanone. These threads relax your tendons and improve blood circulation, boosting collagen production in your skin. This gives you a more youthful look. 

The protein in PDO threads is broken down and dissolves in your skin with time. 

PDO thread lifts in Melbourne are not permanent. PDO threads dissolve in your skin in time. The threads are made of a protein which is completely biodegradable. Hence, if you wish to maintain the facelift results and the youthful glow from the produced collagen in your skin, you should get maintenance thread lifts when the results of the first thread lift wear off. 

The effects of PDO thread lift treatment can last anywhere from 18 months up to 2 years depending on your lifestyle, and your own body’s collagen production levels, elastin and hyaluronic acid production, which are essential to maintain the elasticity and brightness of the skin. Hence, a PDO facelift can be a very long-lasting treatment.

Yes. A PDO thread lift Melbourne will work excellently to provide anti-ageing effects to your skin as well as boost your collagen production. Plus, the results will also not look artificial and extra on your face. You will get a natural and subtle look. 

PDO thread lift is also non-surgical and non-invasive and does not involve making painful incisions on your face. The threads are safe for your face, with almost minimal downtime for recovery.

Also, the thread lift cost is much more efficient as compared to a surgical facelift. The results are long-lasting as well. 

So, all in all, the pros outweigh the cons a lot. You can see that a PDO thread lift treatment in Melbourne is very much worth it.

Botox and PDO thread lifts are very different procedures. Yes, they are both used to get a more youthful-looking face and skin. They can both work on reversing the effects of ageing on your face. 

But botox injections can be used to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and expression lines on your face. Botox works by temporarily relaxing a muscle in the injected area to give you a smoother look. Botox can not boost the production of collagen in your skin.

PDO thread lifts on the other hand will not work as a temporary muscle relaxant on the facial area. Unlike Botox, which can improve one specific area at a time, PDO threads can be used on the whole face to reduce the appearance of wrinkles as well as produce collagen to give your skin hydration and glow. 

If you want to address many cosmetic problems and want the effects to last a long time, a PDO thread lift in Melbourne will be a better fit for you, while a botox may help you if you want a smoother appearance in just some targeted areas like your forehead or your jawline. 

A PDO thread lift procedure is one of the most minimally invasive cosmetic treatments. It does not require any incisions to be made on your facial skin. A PDO thread lift, however, makes micro-punctures on the surface of your skin using fine needles in order to insert and place the PDO  threads in position. 

It does not hurt very much. The feeling can be compared to that of a sting from a bee. This is why our doctors at the Melbourne clinic will be preparing your facial skin by applying a topical anaesthetic numbing cream, to blunt the sensation of the needles being inserted.

 The only downside of getting a PDO thread lift is that the treatment is not permanent. While this can be seen as a pro point because if you do not like the results at some point, you do not have to worry about reversing it with another surgical procedure. 

On the other hand, if you love the results, you have to live with the fact that this is not permanent and will only last up to 2 years maximum. If you wish to get the same results, you have to keep getting maintenance treatments every 2 years or so. 

You can get longer-lasting threads like PLA and PCA but at one point you will have to go through those treatments as well. 

PDO thread lifts in Melbourne are relatively safe procedures. But as with all cosmetic treatments, it poses chances of some complications as well. But the good news is, none of the complications will permanently damage your skin, and can easily be remedied in a short time. 

Any complication is very rare. Following are the complications that can occur :

  • Visible marks on the sutures
  • Pain 
  • Minor redness or bruising
  • Infection from the threads
  • Snapping of the delicate PDO threads
  • Hematoma 
  • Some Inflammation
  • Dimpling 
  • An allergic reaction

These complications highly depend on the experience of your PDO thread lift doctor. PDO thread lifts Melbourne is performed by highly skilled experts at Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors who eliminate the possibility of almost all complications.

Yes. You can smile after the PDO thread lifts. 

However, your PDO thread lift specialist will advise you not to make any extreme facial expressions for the next 2 weeks following your treatment. You can smile but be careful not to laugh widely and loudly. 

Let the PDO threads settle down and start dissolving in your skin. There is a slight chance that with extreme push and pull from too many expressions, the clipping holding the PDO threads might snap.

Both dermal fillers and PDO threads boost the production of collagen in your skin. However, they do not work the same. 

A PDO thread lift will provide a lifting effect for all your facial features, starting from your eyebrows and forehead to your lower face and jawline. A PDO thread lift will not be adding any volume to any of your facial features. It is most effective in people wishing to smooth out the appearance of wrinkles and saggy skin. 

Dermal fillers, on the other hand, will make your facial features firm and tighten your skin, but it is mainly used for adding the desired volume in areas that have lost volume due to age or you can get it correct shape of your nose, lips or cheeks. 

You can get dermal filler injections after you have gotten a PDO thread lift to add more definition to your profile. Dermal filler injections also target small areas while a PDO thread lift targets your whole face.

After consultation with your PDO thread lift doctor and after the date of your treatment has been set, prepare yourself at least a week before. Stop taking any aspirin or anti-inflammatory medications. Any herbal medications you are currently on should also be stopped as these increase the chances of bleeding and bruising. 

Follow other steps and take any extra medications that your PDO thread lift specialist asks you to. Stop smoking completely at least 2 weeks beforehand.  

 The PCL, or polycaprolactone threads, will last the longest on your face. These threads take 12 months – 18 months to dissolve fully and will maintain the elasticity of your skin for more than 3 years.

The longevity of a thread lift procedure also depends on your lifestyle habits like smoking. Other than that the climate of your location and the rate of strain that falls on your face daily can also increase or decrease the effects of thread lifts by much.

A PDO thread lift will not cause blindness.

In very rare cases, the path of PDO threads can intersect with a facial nerve or a blood vessel. This can cause blurry vision. This should be brought to the attention of your PDO thread lift doctor immediately. It can be remedied before any long-term damage occurs to your face if brought to attention in a short time.

After getting a PDO thread lift Melbourne, there are some things you should avoid doing immediately. You should sleep on your back to provide better leverage for the PDO threads. Avoid sleeping on your sides and especially on your stomach. This can put gravitational pressure on the area. Do not get any kind of facial massages for at least 2-3 weeks after the procedure as well.

Do not wear makeup immediately. Wait for the mild soreness and redness (if any) to subside and let your facial skin adjust to the threads. Getting chemical peels or facials is also a big no-no. 

Keep your face away from direct sun rays. Wear strong sunscreen if necessary. Do not let your face expose too much too heat. Keep your face cool and cosy.

A facelift is a more traditional form of a PDO thread lift. By traditional, we mean that a facelift uses old surgical methods to do the job.

While facelift surgery is a permanent option, still most people are choosing to get thread lifts over facelift surgery. Facelift surgery will be much more traumatic on your skin due to its surgical and invasive nature. A traditional facelift has much more risks and a bigger recovery time and effects from anaesthesia. A facelift will also not give you natural-looking results. The effect will be too sharp and prominent compared to the subtlety of thread lifts. 

Thread lifts can boost the production of collagen and has minimal downtime with fewer risks. It is also a cost-effective procedure compared to facelift surgery. All in all, the cons of facelift surgery outweigh the pros.

No. The PDO threads used in a thread lift procedure can be beneficial for your skin since it boosts collagen production after dissolving in your skin. It poses risks of infection but if you follow the aftercare tips carefully, you will be able to see the difference in your skin from the youthful glow.

PDO threads are extremely durable and have almost minimal chances of snapping or breaking. They are used while operating on delicate organs like hearts as well.

But on the off chance that a PDO thread breaks before it dissolves, you will be able to feel it. The lifting effect at that thread point will reduce a little. This is a 0.1% occurrence and you can consult your PDO thread lift doctor for a remedy.

The total number of PDO threads you shall need will be determined by your PDO thread lift specialist upon consultation. This is be decided according to the shape and size of your facial features and the amount of loose and saggy skin you have. 

Ideally, you would need 3-4 PDO threads on each side of your face, 2-3 on your forehead area and 4-5 on your lower face and jawline area for full coverage and best effects.
