NON SURGICAL THREAD LIFTING
PDO (Polydioxanone) Thread
therapy is a technique used to lift and tighten sagging skin tissues, redefine facial contours and induce collagen production. Micro bio-compatible absorbable threads are inserted into the subcutaneous layer of the skin which are adjusted to create an adjustable support framework for the tissue in the treatment area, be it the jowls, mid face or brows. The resultant rejuvenating collagen synthesis creates a lifting effect which can last 2 -3 years and reaches a peak at 6 months when collagen has formed around the threads.
Threads therapy originated from the traditional thread-lift philosophy in western medicine as well as “threads-embedding therapy” in oriental acupuncture therapy to control and improve tissue stimulation and muscle contraction.
The product used for PDO Threads is a fine needle (21G-30G) affixed to the absorbable thread. A cannula is inserted into the subcutaneous layer of the skin, and when it is taken out, the threads remain implanted in the skin. Insertion of dozens of needles to the deeper layer of skin with absorbable threads activates their natural regenerative process and mechanical stimulation of wound healing and tissue contraction.
The most recent development in thread lifting has been the introduction of cog threads. A move away from the traditional monofilaments to barbed threads, this new shape induces higher chronic inflammatory reaction causing a higher rate of fibroblast conversion during the wound healing process. As a result, clients achieve longer lasting and more visible effects after one treatment.
Facial Contouring with V SOFT
V SOFT LIFT is a minor non-invasive treatment with thin threads that lift the skin, increase elasticity. The threads are completely biodegradable.
PDO Threads can very effectively strengthen the contour of the face, reduce roundness, lift sagging skin in the cheeks, jowls, neck and also produce an excellent eye brow lift.
What are the threads?
V SOFT LIFT are small, thin patented threads absorbed gradually by the skin tissue. Parts or whole of the face can be treated in order to achieve lift, replenishment and revitalisation. The cheeks, jawline, mouth corners, eyebrows, frown and neck all respond well to the treatment. Often the only other option is surgery. The procedure takes between thirty and sixty minutes. It is a bit more involved than a filler treatment but with more advanced results. Immediately after treatment you may choose to return to your normal daily activities, albeit with a little help from make-up and concealer. You should notice several immediate positive effects, such as lift and repositioning of the tissues. After four weeks you will appreciate an improved, smoother and fuller complexion with restoration of the youthful balance of the face, enhances skin tone, tightening pores.
What is the Procedure?
The procedure takes around 60 minutes, depending on what treatment you will require. The treatment is performed with a topical local anaesthetic similar to that used for minor surgery. Many thin threads attached to needles are inserted into the dermis in a meshwork pattern, feeling somewhat like a filler treatment. The threads are placed at specific sites for the desired lift and the needles removed. You will be able to fully resume your everyday routine and social commitments within a couple of days.
How does a PDO Threads treatment work?
The threads provide lift and reproduces youthful facial features including thicker skin. The results are immediately visible after the procedure although the full results take around two months to develop with a pick at six months and long lasting results.
What is the advantage of a V SOFT LIFT treatment?
VSOFT LIFT addresses some problems associated with facial ageing that are only otherwise dealt with by invasive surgery, in particular sagging aspects of the low face, neck and jaw line. V SOFT LIFT thus offers anti-ageing solutions for those not wishing to undergo surgery. Although the results cannot be compared to surgery the treatment is more affordable and tolerable. The treatment can be combined with other treatments eg fillers and toxin and can be performed over a period of time rather than all at once.
How long does a V SOFT LIFT?
The effect lasts one to two years, depending on age, lifestyle and skin condition. Results generally last longer in people who take care of their skin and general health by avoiding the sun, attention to a healthy diet and not smoking.
Is there a risk of complications or side effects?
Side effects are minimal except for possible swelling and bruising. Immediately after the treatment you may return to your normal daily activities. The material is of monofilament polydioxanone (PDO), a biocompatible suture material that holds the tissues and stimulates collagen formation.

Yes, it really does work. My face feels firmer without any telltale signs that I’ve had anything ‘done’. In fact the results are so subtle that when I look in the mirror I can’t really see a massive difference but my face feels so much firmer to touch, my makeup doesn’t collect in the lines between my nose and mouth because the line is no longer as prominent and I can’t grab any skin around my jowly-bits anymore. My skin feels noticeably thicker and plumper. And this is all thanks to a revolutionary new technique that has actually forced my skin to produce more of it’s own collagen.“
