A PDO thread procedure involves using various lengths of thin sterile needles to embed PDO dissolving threads under the skin.
These threads are placed under the skin in the dermis layer, where
they act as a framework to lift and reposition the tissues. The material from which these threads are made, Polydioxanone, has been used in medical treatments for many years and as a result is a very safe substance that keeps the skin in its new tightened state for 4-6 months.
The PDO threading treatment is well tolerated by patients, and there is no need for local anaesthesia. The treatment is becoming popular worldwide thanks to its ease of administration and lifting results it can offer patients.

Will there be any bruising/ swelling?
There will be very minimal bruising and swelling, but as with all aesthetic treatments this can vary on an individual basis. If any bruising continues to persist after 48 hours consult your GP.
Which areas of my face can be treated?
Silhouette soft is most effective in the mid face to lift tissue, the lower jaw to redefine contours. The treatment is also used to reduce jowling in the neck, and for brow lifting.
Does this treatment hurt?
As with all Aesthetic procedures there is some discomfort, however we administer a numbing agent to the entry and exit points to minimise discomfort.
Estimated full recovery time is 7 days. You will feel sensitive for 48 hours post treatment.
Be sure to avoid any dental work, contact sports (including running/ high intensity activity) in the week following treatment. Avoid facials, sunbeds, and apply minimal makeup for a week after treatment. Sleeping on your back is recommended in the days after the procedure. If you experience any pain after your face or neck lift, consult your doctor and take pain relief treatments as they recommend.
