Why Choose MINT™ PDO Threads?

PDO threads are brilliant for repositioning and revitalizing overall skin tissue, as well as providing a natural subtle lift.

Here at the clinic, we offer PDO Mono Threads that contain smooth sutures that help rejuvenate your skin by stimulating collagen production. 

Not only do MINT™ PDO Threads improve the appearance of sagging skin, but PDO (polydioxanone) can also help promote the stimulation of collagen and neovascularization, which helps to improve skin elasticity, texture, fine lines, and volume for a lasting rejuvenation.

 

 

PDO Threads (Baker Street)

What happens during a MINT PDO thread lift?

Your treatment will begin with a bespoke consultation, this is a chance to discuss any concerns and aspired results. After the consultation with our senior cosmetic doctors, the procedure is performed here in our Baker Street clinic. It is relatively quick and easy with no cutting or incisions involved. Local anaesthetic is all that is required for patients to remain comfortable throughout.

The threads integrate into the skin’s tissue and are inserted into the skin via a cannula and are pulled to produce a lifting effect.

There is minimal downtime involved with a MINT thread lift. Many of our patients find they can resume their everyday activities shortly after treatment.

Treatment FAQs

What is a PDO thread?

PDO is a thread made of Polydioxanone — a clinically proven material already used in surgical sutures. It’s a choice of material for a thread facelift as it naturally and safely breaks down and dissolves in the body.

What age should I have a thread lift/ am I suitable?

Suitable from age 30 onwards where you have sagging on the face/neck that you wish to improve. The average age of a client to have a thread lift at Dr Leah Clinics in 2020 was age 49.

Also, if you have a hooked nose you may be suitable for nose threads within the clinic. This will all be down to the bespoke consultation you will receive prior to treatment.

You must also be in overall good health and have realistic expectations of the treatment. Facelift threading is best suited for those who want to enhance their appearance without resorting to cosmetic surgery.

Does a thread lift hurt?

No – before the thread lift procedure begins, your Dr Leah clinician will inject a local anaesthetic to numb the treatment area and prevent pain.

What is the difference between Silhouette Soft Thread Lift and PDO Thread Lift?

They are different treatments and they produce different results.

PDO threads tend to be easier to insert, cheaper in price and produce a different type of collagen to Silhouette Soft. They tend to give more plumping/rejuvenation than lift. Silhouette Soft threads produce less plumping than PDO threads but give a better lift.

A bespoke consultation is performed prior to determining the correct thread lift treatment for you

Should I have PDO threads or Silhouette Soft Threads?

If you require plumping / volumisation as well as a subtle lift, then PDO is the best option. If you do not require additional volume but require a reasonable lift, then Silhouette Soft is the best option. If you are unsure which type of thread lift is best, then your Dr Leah Clinics doctor will be able to advise which is best for you at your consultation.

Can I combine my thread lift treatments?

Yes, the majority of thread lift patients combine the treatment with other treatments such as Ultherapy to tighten the skin prior to lifting, or small amounts of dermal filler after thread lift to enhance the result. These treatments are offered at a discounted rate at your follow up appointment after thread lift treatment.

At Dr Leah Clinics, you’re in safe hands
