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 five 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 the Non surgical face lift ?
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.
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 COGS that are used for the lifting element of the treatment have small barbs which allows for the mechanical lifting of the skin.
The PDO thread is inserted into the skin through a very fine needle, the cogs are inserted via a blunt cannula.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 due to the use of cogs, 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. 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 and the only procedure that offers an immediate physical lift. After about 10-14 days, the process of natural body protein synthesis begins and collagen production occurs. Collagen production takes between 10-16 weeks this is when the full results of the procedure are seen.
What’s are the common side effects?
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. Everyone swells the amount is patient depended but this usually resolves in 48-72 hours. Occasionaly there can be some slightly prolonged swelling in a small number of patients. All this will be discussed at your consultation.
What is the process for 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 a convenient appointment can then be made.
On the day of your treatment local anaesthetic is used to numb the area of insertion this takes effect in minutes. The procedure is then started, the treatment takes between 45-60 minutes depending where you are having treated. Due to the way we carry out the procedure patients describe it as a little uncomfortable but not painful. It is a very well tolerated treatment.
