HOW WE TREAT
What Are Threads
Polydioxane (PDO) Threads are a medical grade thread, thinner than hair, that is inserted beneath the skin to trigger the body’s foreign body reaction, resulting in neocollagenesis (new collagen production). The stimulation of new collagen in the treated area causes the skin to firm and tighten producing lift and volume.
Threads can be used to treat:
- Upper and lower cheeks
- Forehead and brows
- Neck and jawline
- Nose to mouth lines
- Marionette Lines
The Injectors at Cosmetic Sculpting Clinic are highly trained in the use of Threads and use only the highest quality products available.
What To Expect?
- The treatment will take approximately 30-60 minutes (consultation time included).
- A specially compounded numbing agent will be applied to minimise any discomfort.
- The PDO Threads are inserted using a micro-needle or canula.
- You will experience swelling and bruising following the treatment, which may last up to 2 weeks.
- Results will be seen after the swelling subsides and will last between 6-12 months depending on your personal circumstances.

How many injections will I need?
Requirements will vary based on a number of factors, however, most patients see best results after 4-6 sessions spaced approximately 4 weeks apart.
How long does PRP take?
Depending on the number of injections required or the nature of the treatment, you can expect to take around 30-90 minutes for a procedure.
