PDO Thread Lift

PDO Thread Lift

The latest in non-surgical face lift technologies has arrived at B.A.O. Beauty Clinic. By using PDO Lifting threads we can support the tissues, alleviating the effects of skin laxity and undesirable wrinkles. This treatment has the added benefit of collagen stimulation and revitalizes the tissues in the treatment area. There are two types of threads used at B.A.O. Lifting threads and Smooth threads.

PDO Lifting (Cog) Threads:
These threads are used for lifting and anchoring areas of sagging and aging skin. These threads have barbs that latch into your skin like small fishhooks, to provide support and lift parts of your face.

PDO Smooth Threads:
These threads, either mono or screw, are used in areas that need rejuvenation by stimulating collagen production or areas of volume loss to restore sunken areas of the face.

If you goal of treatment is skin rejuvenation or skin tightening then we will be recommending Smooth or Screw threads.

If your goal of treatment is moderate facelift, we will be recommending lifting or Cog threads.

If your goal is treatment is significant facelift, we will be recommending facelift surgery.
