PDO Mono Threads

Available at all Absolute Cosmetic locations, PDO Mono threads are a non-invasive treatment method which helps to produce and increase collagen production within the skin. In addition to an effective collagen boost, mono threads stimulate a skin tightening and remodelling effect in the areas treated. Results are long-lasting rejuvenation of the skin, delaying the natural ageing process by 9-12 months.

What are Mono threads?

Mono threads are a minimally invasive non-surgical thread and absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) suture. They have a 30 year long safety track record for use in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgery and for wound disclosure. The brand we use at Absolute Cosmetic is Australian TGA approved and backed by clinical studies for efficacy and safety.

How do Mono threads work?

Polydioxanone (PDO) Mono threads are individually inserted to create a vectorial mesh underneath the skin. This mesh acts as a support system for the skin tissue. The insertion of the mono thread provides immediate tightening, whilst stimulating our natural collagen production.

  • The embedded threads gradually reabsorb over 3-4 months through hydrolisis.
  • Mono threads produce and increase collagen around the inserted thread. While effects are immediate, maximum tension and results are achieved 2-3 months post treatment.

What can I expect at my appointment?

A topical numbing agent (cream or a nerve block) will be administered by your practitioner, at least 30-minutes before your treatment. While numbing is not essential, this option is recommended to ensure minimal discomfort.

Depending on the number of threads you have opted for, and the area/s to be treated, total treatment time can take anywhere from 15-40 minutes.

 

 

 

When will I see results and how long will they last?

While the tightening effect is immediate following insertion of threads, on average most patients will notice results 6-8 weeks post-treatment.

Results will vary with all treatments, including Mono Threads. On average results for this treatment will last on average 9-12 months.

Post Treatment Care

  • Bruising creams can be taken to help reduce the amount of bruising you may experience. Talk to your practitioner about the options available to you.
  • To reduce swelling and inflammation, ice can be applied for a few hours following your treatment.
  • Paracetamol can be taken if needed.
  • Avoid sudden movements, opening your mouth too wide, laughing excessively, or other stimulation of the facial muscles, for the nest few days.
  • The area should not be massaged for the next month (included facials).
  • The treated area can be washed gently after 5 hours following treatment.
  • Avoid saunas and other heat devices near the face following treatment.
  • Oxygenetix Foundation is formulated for use post-procedure. This foundation can be used following treatment, if applied gently, to conceal redness and to aid healing.
  • Avoid heavy make-up for at least 3 days post procedure – We suggest avoiding any make-up for a minimum of 3 days.
