PDO Mono Threads

How they work

PDO (polydioxanone) mono threads are made from a colourless, dissolvable polyester. When
injected into specific areas of the skin, the threads work to firm the skin and support the
underlying facial structures. Additionally, the injections stimulate fibroblasts in the skin, which
helps promote healthy collagen production.

Mono threads therefore create a more youthful facial contour, an increase in collagen, smoother skin texture, and a reduction in lines and
wrinkles. During the procedure, one of our experienced clinicians will administer a topical or local anaesthetic in order to give you maximum comfort. The exact position of your threads will be
decided during your consultation, based on your skin rejuvenation goals.

The entire process will take around 15 to 30 minutes. Common treatment areas include the forehead and brows, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, cheeks, as well as the neck and jawline. Once inserted, the threads begin to gradually
strengthen and tighten the skin. Then, they will begin to gradually dissolve over time, leaving you with a smooth, youthful skin texture.

About this treatment

Benefits of PDO Mono Threads

Due to the natural ageing process, collagen fibres in our skin deplete over time. This loss of collagen makes our skin become fragile and less flexible, contributing to facial creasing as well as other signs of ageing. Lines, wrinkles, and general skin laxity become more common as we get older, and as a result, many men and women seek PDO mono threads. The treatment infuses the skin with collagen and restores a firm, youthful look.

PDO mono threads are often regarded as a non-surgical facelift, providing the benefits of skin
firming and tightening without invasive incisions or stitches. The gentle injectable treatment stimulates healthy collagen production through powerful fibroblasts, therefore helping your skin to be firm, strong, and flexible.
Mono threads at The Skin Boutique’s CBD clinic offer the following skin rejuvenation benefits:

- Stimulation of collagen and elastin
- Skin firming and tightening
- Reduction of lines and wrinkles
- A naturally vibrant appearance
- Long-lasting, effective results
- Overall smoother, more youthful skin texture

Your private consultation

Prior to undergoing your treatment for PDO mono threads, we will need to consult with you in order to create a treatment plan. Treatment plans are based on your personal skin condition and needs, desired results, as well as your health. During your consultation, you will need to discuss your overall health and any medical conditions, as this will indicate whether you are a candidate.

It is generally suitable for men and women who are in good health and are seeking to address:

- Ageing skin
- Lines and wrinkles
- Skin laxity
- Poor facial support

If you are looking for an excellent non-surgical solution to facial ageing and skin laxity, with natural results, book your appointment at The Skin Boutique. We will guide you through the process and help you get the most out of your PDO mono threads.


You may expect some side effects after your procedure, such as mild bruising and swelling. However, these effects are a normal consequence of the injectable threads and should resolve
within a few days to a week. It is a good idea to sleep on your back for a couple of weeks and avoid putting pressure on your treated areas. Also, you should avoid excessive facial
movements in order to reduce the risk of accidentally dislodging the facial threads.

Mono threads are a low-risk treatment compared to more invasive procedures. The potential but uncommon risks of their procedure include:

- Ongoing pain and swelling
- Infection
- Bruising
- Scarring
- Dislodging or snapping of threads
- Inflammation

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is suitable for PDO mono threads?

Ideal candidates are between 25 and 65, are not pregnant or breastfeeding, and do not have
issues such as autoimmune disorders or a history of keloid scarring. If you wish to find out
whether you are suitable for this procedure, speaking to one of our friendly and experienced
clinicians will help clarify your options.

Do mono threads lift the skin?

The procedure is designed to smooth and tighten the skin, not to lift it. The threads promote
natural collagen production to enhance a smooth skin texture before eventually dissolving.
Although PDO threads can result in a slight lift, lifting is not the purpose of the treatment.

What are the results?

Following your treatment, you may see an immediate improvement. However, the best results will be seen after a few months, when the threads have had time to stimulate healthy collagen production and skin tightening. The threads will naturally dissolve, and you should then be left
with a noticeable improvement in skin firmness and texture.

How long will the results last?

The results of PDO thread lifting can last for about twelve months. Afterwards, follow-up
treatments will help you maintain a firm, healthy skin appearance.
