One nifty treatment providing immediate plumping effects and overall skin rejuvenation.
Give me the lowdown
If you’re looking for immediate plumping effects and overall skin rejuvenation in one nifty treatment, you can’t go past the power of PDO Mono Threads! Mono Threads are smooth, flexible and durable threads made from an absorbable material that helps stimulate the production of collagen, creating a tightening effect over time. After injecting local anaesthetic, the smooth mono threads are placed under the skin in a mesh-like pattern to stimulate production of collagen and elastin, leading to thicker, firmer skin and improvements in sagging and crepey looking skin. The treatment is quick (less than 45 minutes) and relatively painless, however you may feel a little discomfort for a few seconds as the needles enter the skin and some tenderness in the first few hours after your treatment. Results will reach full effect around 6 weeks post treatment! In the weeks and months following your treatment, the PDO Mono threads are fully absorbed by the body as your natural collagen production takes its place, meaning you don’t need to remove them. Pretty cool, huh?

How many treatments will I need?
Results can be seen after just one treatment, however more noticeable improvements will occur when you treat more than one area. This can be done over subsequent treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
How long will results last?
PDO Mono Thread results generally last around 9-12 months depending on the individual and factors like age, lifestyle, budget and location of the threads.
Is there any downtime?
There’s very minimal downtime for this procedure. Depending on your treatment and the amount of threads used, you can expect common side effects like swelling and bruising, however these will subside anywhere between a few days to a week post-treatment. If you have an important event coming up, we recommend you book your treatment a few weeks in advance.
Handy to know
One of the great things about PDO Mono Threads is that they increase collagen production but keep your natural movement, giving you a natural and youthful look.
SC Pro Tip
For maximum results, PDO Mono threads are best performed alongside other collagen stimulating treatments like Diamond Polar Skin Tightening, Collagen Biostimulators and/or Collagen Biomodulators.
