PDO Thread Face Lifts

As we age, our skin naturally begins to weaken due to a loss in elastic tissue (elastin), which results in loose skin around the mouth, jowl, cheek and neck area. Thread face lifts are designed to help restore your facial structure by lifting and tightening the skin to reduce the visible signs of ageing without surgery.

The thread face lift is a quick and simple procedure involving the introduction of Polydioxanone (PDO) threads via a thin tube beneath the skin attaching the threads to surrounding tissue. These threads anchor the tissue to lift the face almost instantly, and downtime is minimal.

This non-surgical face lift treatment will also help to tighten the skin and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which are important in restoring the plumpness of the skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Here at Transform, we can create a personalised treatment plan to help you achieve the look you want.
