Threads (Neck)

There are many types of PDO threads but to simplify matters the first group are the basic threads which are quick and easy to place and have minimal discomfort. The effects occur 6-8 weeks after placement. The Advanced 4D thread have barbs that grip the skin for the added effect of an immediate pull.

4D PDO or PCL threads provide a minimally invasive thread lift. It is a delicate procedure to gently lift sagging facial skin to produce a smoother, more youthful appearance. If gravity has started to take its toll on your face, a PDO thread lift may be a less invasive alternative to a face lift to rejuvenate the face without the risks and downtime associated with surgery. This thread-lift procedure involves very fine barbs on a suture being inserted via a needle prick and then placed under the skin to lift and support sagging areas. It will not offer the same results as a full face lift but is a good option for a more subtle rejuvenation.

FAQ

It has a dual function requirement: 1. Lift and 2. Regeneration
The lifting effect is immediate and discreet as it is the result of compressing and elevating tissue at the time of adjusting the suture.
After inserting the suture, the doctor applies slight pressure on the treated area. In this way, the doctor reshapes the surface of the skin and makes it visibly smoother.
The regenerative effect is gradual and natural: Polydioxanone, the principal component of 4D PDO threads is a polymer known in the medical field for many years. Once the suture is applied, the Polydioxanone acts on the deeper layers of the skin and helps increase the volume of saggy areas, restoring shapeliness to the face gradually and perfectly naturally.

No, they are biodegradable and designed to be absorbed over time.

It is recommended for men and women of 30 and over who are trying to combat effectively the signs of ageing, who do not want any surgical intervention, but are looking for a natural result.
The treatment is suitable for all skin types – testing for allergic reactions proved negative in clinical studies. Nevertheless, the use of 4D PDO threads is not recommended if you are allergic or sensitive to biomaterials.

During your consultation we will consult we will examine you to look for severe ptosis or a great deal of excess skin, as this may be too excessive to benefit from this technique.

Do not take any aspirin for 2 weeks prior to the procedure
Avoid Vitamin E supplements for 30 days prior to the procedure

The procedure takes around 30-45 minutes.
After a small local anaesthetic, we insert the suture under the skin to a depth of about three to five millimetres. No incision is required, as the suture is inserted using a fine needle. It is held in place with absorbable barbs oriented in a multi-directions.
Once the suture has been applied, slight compression of the tissue is placed to reshape it by hand and to obtain the desired lifting effect. The non-inserted ends of the suture are cut off. One or more sutures may be applied, depending on the individual and treated area.
4D PDO Threads may be used as a single treatment or in combination with fillers and anti-wrinkle injections.

After the treatment, as with any cosmetic treatment, some slight swelling, redness or bruising may sometimes be observed, but with a few days these disappear.
There may be some wrinkling of the skin that disappears very quickly.

    I just had a consultation with Dr Edwin …
  • Dr Edwin Anthony and Sister Gill were amazing from start to finish. They both made me feel comfortable and thoroughly explained the vaser Lipo procedure. I took my time to think about what they had advised and the expected results I would see and I wasn’t disappointed when I decided to have the treatment. Results were fantastic and the after care was great – I’m currently into my 4th week after the operation and still feel great. I feel more confident in myself and have maintained the MLD sessions to help with the drainage and bruising. Would highly recommend EA clinic to anyone wanting a procedure.

    Vaser Lipo / Contouring – Amazing Results!
  • I saw Gill at the end of October and she suggested I tried the VI derm range, which I was reluctant at first because nothing has worked on the sun damage and discolouration on my face. Within two weeks I had noticed an improvement, then at my review Gill suggested a VI peel, which I did not want as I have had a TCA peel before and the pain was awful with no improvement to my skin. Today I have just had my VI peel and I must say there was no pain at all. Gill was amazing and I cannot wait to see the results
