PDO Threads Coventry
WHAT IS A PDO THREAD LIFT?
PDO threads are a lifting thread made of Polydioxanone. They are used for treatments to restore volume or fullness to the face and they work by reducing or eliminating lines, wrinkles, folds in the skin, as well as skin tightening – just like a face lift.
The effect is seen immediately after treatment, but it is also progressive and gets better with time as the collagen builds up around the dissolving threads and fibroblasts are stimulated.
They are most effective when used with other complimentary aesthetic treatments such as Botox, peels, dermal fillers and PRP. The treatment is straightforward, effective and painless.
They help to restore our skin to its former youthful appearance, as the threads are placed into areas where it needs to be lifted and plumped up to make it firmer. They come in different lengths with varying degrees of threads attached, and in general, the thicker and heavier the thread, the deeper it is injected into the skin to help plump out fine to deep lines and wrinkles, such as Naso-labial folds (nose to mouth lines), contouring chin or cheeks and to augment lips.
Skin starts to sag and wrinkle naturally with age, as underlying fat and collagen diminishes. Placement of the PDO threads build collagen creating a scaffold, making it firmer thus smoothing out fine and deep lines and wrinkles and lifting the flaccid skin.
Mono / Screw Threads
PDO mono threads are biodegradable filaments coated in PDO (polydioxanone). They are inserted under the skin into the dermis to stimulate collagen and elastin production, firming and smoothing fine lines, wrinkles and crepey skin on the face, neck & body.

Cog thread treatment areas will include the foxy eyes, eye lift, cheeks & jawline. The barbed threads improve the facial appearance by immediately lifting and tightening. In the coming months, they will also encourage the production of new collagen in the skin to add volume and rejuvenate the skin.
The difference between mono & cog threads
Mono threads are great for clients with early signs of ageing that want to enhance their collagen production in specific areas along with a slight lifting effect.
Cog threads are for creating a more dramatic lifting effect which is ideal for hooded eyes and heavier signs of ageing of the face such as deep-set nasal folds, marionette lines & sagging facial contours.
