Matrix PDO Threads

AVAILABLE AT:  MY REJUVENATE, BODY SCULPTING CLINICS & GLADESVILLE.

Mono Threads have become another method of tightening & thickening of skin. Thread come in a variety of sizes & textures for customised treatments. Aly uses TGA approved PDO mono & double screw threads, made from a material called Polydioxanone, which is an absorbable polymer that is flexible & durable, without barbs. These threads are inserted into the sub dermal layer, in a mesh-like pattern, to promote the natural production of new collagen, creating a gradual & natural skin thickening, skin tightening & rejuvenation effect. 

 

PDO threads are primarily treat skin quality & are often used in combinations with other cosmetic injectable treatments, which needs tightening or as a preventative procedure. They are minimally invasive & can also be used multiple times. The threads become a support structure for your face & body, allowing natural collagen production to increase. Overtime, the threads are completely absorbed by the body. Results may be seen in 6 weeks & will continue to improve over the next 2 to 6 months. While the threads slowly dissolve over the next 6-8months, their effects may continue to last up to 12 months.

Please keep in mind Matrix PDO threads are not designed for lifting or treating saggy skin, these concerns require barbed threads. Matrix PDO Threads are a skin rejuvenating treatment, once inserted into the skin, the threads gradually stimulate natural collagen production to provide thickening & tightening of the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles.
