PDO Threads in Bayside, Melbourne

A PDO thread lift is an innovative treatment that involves the insertion of thread into the skin for a rejuvenated and lifted result. At Bay Medical Aesthetics, we use PDO threads in Bayside to help address a range of concerns on the face and body. Our doctor-led clinic uses two different types of quality Matrix PDO Threads to achieve the results you desire.

What Are Matrix PDO Threads?

Matrix PDO Threads are made from PDO, short for polydioxanone. This is a biodegradable polymer that has been used for internal sutures for more than 50 years, and for aesthetic purposes since 2011. PDO is safely absorbed into the body through a process known as hydrolysis, which takes approximately 180-200 days.

Matrix PDO Threads are available in two types: Mono Threads and Long COG Threads

  • Mono Threads – These threads have a smooth surface and are often used to improve skin elasticity, texture, and deep folds and grooves. They can be used for the face and body to tighten skin and promote collagen production.
  • Long COG Threads – These threads feature cogs that lift tissue to improve sagging skin. In addition to providing an immediate lift, Long COG Threads also stimulate collagen production for tighter skin in the area.

Common Areas Treated

At Bay Medical Aesthetics, our thread lift treatment in Melbourne can target a range of areas to help you look and feel your best. Common concerns we can treat with a PDO thread lift include:

  • Laugh lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Accordion lines
  • Buccal hollowing
  • Deep forehead and frown wrinkles
  • Crepey skin over the cheeks
  • Jawline
  • Neck lines (necklace lines), wrinkles and crepey skin
  • Décolletage wrinkles and crepey skin
  • Crepey skin on the abdomen (around the belly button)
  • Buttock dimples

How Do Matrix PDO Threads Work?

Our PDO thread lift in Melbourne works to lift the skin and stimulate collagen by contracting tissues and inwardly pulling the skin. For Mono Threads in particular, specific changes in the surrounding tissues can also achieve fat reduction and tissue contracture.

The skin tightening results of PDO Threads occur as a result of the following changes:

  • Stimulation of new fibrous connective tissue
  • Merging with existing fibrous connective tissue
  • Tissue contractions due to myofibroblast activity
  • Increased size of capillary vessels
  • Fat cell denaturation that reduces the thickness of fat layers

Frequently Asked Questions

A PDO thread lift is a cosmetic treatment that involves the insertion of threads beneath the skin, helping to stimulate collagen production and lift and rejuvenate the skin. Our Melbourne clinic can perform a thread lift that targets your specific concern, such as laugh lines, forehead wrinkles or neck lines.

If you’re looking for a treatment that tightens and thickens the skin and provides a subtle lift, a PDO thread lift could be right for you. PDO thread lifts are capable of targeting a range of areas on the face and body, making them worthwhile if you’re looking for an effective targeted treatment with minimal downtime.

Yes, PDO threads continue to lift even after the biodegradable threads begin to break down. This is due to the stimulation of collagen in the skin, which can continue to lift and tighten the skin for up to 12 months.

You can continue to move your face in a normal fashion after getting PDO thread lifts, and this includes smiling. However, it’s recommended that you avoid exaggerated facial movements when talking, chewing or yawning for 3 weeks after the treatment.

The results of PDO threads have been known to last 6-12 months. This can depend on lifestyle factors and the area being treated. Repeat treatment at our Bayside clinic may be necessary at the 6 month mark in order to maintain results.
