PDO thread lift
PDO thread lift treatment at Barstable Medical Clinic
A PDO thread lift is an innovative and effective cosmetic technique designed to lift and tighten sagging skin tissues and has become a very popular procedure as an alternative to a full surgical facelift.
Why choose PDO threadlift?
The PDO threadlift is a highly effective and safe method of repositioning sagging tissues, particularly jowls and jawlines.
At the same time it promotes the stimulation of collagen that improves skin texture, fine lines, wrinkles, and elasticity for a firmer and tighter look.
Bridging the gap between dermal fillers and a full surgical face lift, this is an effective option for patients with severe skin sagging and ageing who don’t want to go under the knife.
The whole procedure takes around 1 hour, achieving improved contouring for a younger appearance without surgery and with minimal downtime.
