PDO threads are designed to counter the effects of aging by promoting collagen production and providing support to the skin over an extended period of time. These threads have a slow breakdown rate, allowing for long-lasting results. By stimulating collagen production, PDO threads help to improve skin elasticity, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and enhance overall skin appearance. With their ability to provide support and encourage collagen production, PDO threads offer a safe and effective way to rejuvenate the skin and combat the signs of aging.
Before the Treatment
Prior to any treatment at COCO Skin Clinic you will receive a consultation with your treatment provider to determine if this is the right treatment for you. During this time, you will be able to ask questions and have any concerns addressed.
During the Treatment
A topical numbing cream is typically applied to the treatment areas to ensure patient comfort during the procedure. The numbing cream helps to minimize any discomfort associated with the insertion of the threads and makes the treatment experience more tolerable for the patient. A series of threads are then gently placed under the skin using a very fine needle, which is then removed.
After the Treatment
Post-treatment discomfort, swelling, redness, bruising, and discolouration may occur. These are common and normal side effects and typically resolve in a few days. Strict adherence to aftercare will help to minimise these side effects. Most people can return to work immediately however like with all injectable treatments, it is advisable to schedule social events for two weeks later.
