What Is A PDO Face Lift?
It is a lifting technique using special sutures called polydioxanone, commonly known as PDO. Our highly skilled doctors form a matrix of the sutures that act as a support for the underlying tissues. Special Cogged sutures can be used to lift and reposition soft tissues, that have sagged to a more youthful position.
If you are concerned about facial ageing but are scared, or apprehensive about taking the step to a surgical facelift there may be an alternative non-surgical procedure that can address a sagging jawline and drooping cheeks- the PDO Face Life. It can give you a significant immediate lift, and as the sutures dissolve they stimulate your own natural production of elastin and collagen, giving your tissues a youthful firmness, and your skin a rejuvenated glow and structure, reducing lines and wrinkles. The results can last from 18 months to more than two years.
How This Works ?
This is a relatively simple treatment, and achieved within one treatment session using a topical local anaesthetic and takes from 30-45 minutes.
Fine needles, or cannulas that contain PDO sutures are inserted under the skin, when the needles, or cannulas are removed the tiny sutures stay under the skin. There can be some discomfort, bleeding, bruising, swelling, tissue dimpling and bunching; downtime can last for 5 days, and up to two weeks, gentle daily activities can be resumed straight away. Many different areas of the face can be treated at the same time.
The procedure gives a natural soft face lift, and can help you loose up to ten years.
The treatment costs from £999 – £3000 and lasts from about 18 months, up to 3 – 4 years.
