PDO Thread lifts are the latest and best innovation in facial treatments. Rippon Medical is committed to revolutionising the concept of anti-ageing in the UK by offering only the highest quality, reputable and evidence based treatment.
We are one of the first clinics in Cumbria to offer the innovative, non-surgical filament face lift “The PDO Thread-lift”.
The PDO Thread Lift is the next generation in facial rejuvenation, in which micro-filaments and resulting collagen create a supporting “tissue corset”. The collagen ‘corset’ produces tissue tightening and wrinkle smoothing while restoring youthful contours.
It works by stimulating the body’s own collagen. The threads especially designed PDO filament, a material that has been safely used in humans for many years, is both FDA and CE approved.
Our PDO Thread Lift can be used to enhance and improve the appearance of a loose neck, sagging cheeks and jowls and droopy eyebrows.
We can personalise your treatment to suit your exact needs thereby ensuring that you are totally happy with the results.
WHO IS A THREAD LIFT SUITABLE FOR?
A thread lift is suited to both men and women between the ages of 40 and 70. The procedure is most effective on skin that has minimal sagging and, offers the best results for cheeks, jowls, brows and the neck area. If you are looking for results that are more effective and long lasting than injectables and fillers, then a thread lift is the ideal choice.
If you are put off by traditional surgery or don’t want general anaesthetic, then a thread lift is great as it is minimally invasive and can be carried out under local anaesthetic.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF A THREAD LIFT?
The great thing about a thread lift is that it offers a quick recovery combined with excellent results.
This procedure requires a minimum amount of non-invasive surgery and leaves no scarring. Local anaesthetic is all that is needed and there is no hospital stay involved. Another good factor about the thread lift is that it is much more affordable than a regular face lift, and the results are long lasting.
A thread lift is a type of face lift that is often referred to as the ‘lunch hour lift’ due to its simplicity and the time it takes to carry out the procedure.
A tiny entry will be made by the ear then fine threads are advanced along pre-marked contours.
The threads are made from polydioxanone (PDO) – the same material used for medical stitches – which dissolve naturally in the body over time. Once the threads are in place, your body starts to produce new bundles of collagen around each thread and, this in turn creates a subtle yet effective lift. The results differ for each person, but are very natural, giving a rejuvenated and refreshed look. There is no scarring and recovery times are a lot less than those associated with traditional surgery.
