How do rejuvenating PDO Threads work?

At The Lime Tree Clinic, we have a variety of threads at our disposal to help rejuvenate your skin and bring back the plumpness your skin is screaming for while helping to reduce fine lines and enhance skin texture. 

This article focuses on REJUVENATION PDO threads.

 The PDO Threads have many benefits: 

  • Boosts Collagen & Elastin: Helps to stimulate collagen production to help smooth and tighten the skin 
  • Shape & Symmetry: PDO Threads can be used to help shape and balance asymmetrical facial features 
  • Anti-aging: Helps to tighten, thicken and firm the skin, which in turn can help to reduce fine lines. 
  • Deep wrinkles: To plump up deep-seated wrinkles and static wrinkles resistant to antiwrinkle injections 
  • Eye area: To strengthen and support the eye area if they are looking tired and hollow 
  • Aged or sun-damaged skin: to restore firmness and thickness that radiates youthfulness 

How are PDO Threads different to Dermal Fillers?

PDO Threads and Dermal Fillers treat different aspects of the face and skin. Threads are a dissolvable material, which helps to stimulate natural collagen to the skin while also providing instant support via its lattice structure. Dermal Fillers are mouldable gels used to replace lost volume or to reshape the facial structure.


How many threads will I need?

The number of threads needed and the type required will depend on your own personal circumstances and the condition of your skin. For example, we will use only a few special threads for the nasolabial fold, 10 or more mono threads for a small area of concern such as under eyes, 20 or more threads for the cheeks, and up to 100-200 threads for a more comprehensive total face or body rejuvenation by Dr Robert Lau. 


How often should I have PDO threads done?

For most people, threads can be done every 6-12 months for ongoing collagen stimulation and improvement in the skin texture and elasticity. More intense treatment is recommended for areas that would benefit from significant improvement, and 3 sessions of treatments every 1-3 months is recommended

The face or other treatment areas are thoroughly cleansed and disinfected before our cosmetic practitioner inserts the PDO Threads. The angles, positioning and patterns of the thread lattice are carefully designed for your needs and inserted accordingly to get the best result for your problematic area.

Routine PDO Threads start from $300 for 10 threads. Larger areas may need more than 10 threads. There are also other types of threads available, each with specific indications and these are priced differently. The practitioner at The Lime Tree Clinic will tailor a rejuvenation plan with you that is suitable to your skin’s needs. 


PDO Threads aftercare

Immediately after the treatment, you may experience slight swelling or some bruising. This will resolve within 1 to 2 weeks. You will feel some mild firmness and slight tenderness in the areas that have been treated, and this will settle in 2-4 weeks. Most individuals will not require any pain relief after; however, paracetamol can be taken if necessary. The insertion sites must be kept clean and no strenuous exercise should be performed within a week. Sun exposure should be minimised. We will closely monitor your progress and are always excited to see your ongoing progress as the skin continues to improve.
