Non-surgical face tightening that's safe, effective and with minimal downtime.
PDO Threads provide us with a new and unique way to improve skin texture by thickening and tightening the skin with minimal associated downtime.
This treatment creates volume and support to give a subtle lift to the areas of the face and body that are starting to show visible signs of ageing, such as fine lines and skin laxity.
What are the benefits of threads?
The PDO Thread technique tightens the skin, improves sagging tissue and facial contour. All of this works together to give you enhanced skin texture, fewer fine lines and wrinkles, and improved collagen production.
• Skin rejuvenation as a result of collagen stimulation
• Skin tightening and lifting
• Revolumisation of facial volume loss due to ageing
Results may be seen in as little as 6 weeks and will continue to improve over 2 – 3 months. While the threads slowly dissolve, their effects may last between 12 – 18 months.
How do PDO Threads work?
Our Medical Team starts by applying a numbing cream to the treatment area to ensure client comfort. The threads are then precisely and gently placed under the skin using a cannula, into the sub dermal level.
After the threads are in place, they are gently pulled back to tighten sagging areas.
The threads work to activate collagen synthesis, which produces a gradual skin thickening, skin tightening and rejuvenation effect. They work by becoming a support structure for your skin, allowing natural collagen production to take place.
The thread material is made from PDO (polydioxanone), the same material used in surgery to close wounds and will gradually dissolve over time stimulating collagen and elastin production to achieve a complete anti-aging effect – tighter, firmer, youthful, and overall rejuvenated skin.
PDO Threads can be used to smooth, support and rejuvenate numerous areas.
Common treatment areas include:
• Eyebrow rejuvenation and temples
• Frown and forehead lines
• Under eyes and tear trough
• Cheek contour and accordion lines
• Nasolabial folds
• Marionette lines
• Lip lines and lip contour
• Jawline and necklines
• Generalised skin tightening and reconditioning across the entire face

Frequently Asked Questions
- +What are PDO Tightening Threads?
PDO threads are made up of a material called Polydioxanone, which is an absorbable polymer that is flexible and durable. The PDO threads work by triggering fibroblasts, which induce your own collagen production, creating a tightening effect that can last 12 – 18 months.
The PDO Threads are inserted into the sub dermal level, in a mesh-like pattern, to promote the creation of new collagen. The threads activate collagen synthesis which produces a gradual skin thickening, skin tightening and rejuvenation effect. The threads work by becoming a support structure for your skin, allowing natural collagen production to take place.
Over a 6-month period, the threads will be absorbed into the body.
PDO Tightening Threads come in two different textures, Mono and Double Screw:
Mono Threads – The Mono threads are a type of single PDO filament.
These threads are smooth and versatile, as they can be safely placed in most areas of the face and body.
Screw Threads – The Screw Threads have 1-2 intertwined threads, which provide double the volumising effect of a single mono thread. These threads are perfect for treating sunken or sagging areas that require more volume and lift.
- +What happens during the PDO Thread Treatment?
Topical anaesthetic is applied to the treatment area or a very small amount of Local anaesthetic is injected into the skin with a very fine needle to numb the area.
The PDO Threads are inserted using a micro-needle or a cannula. There is no incision and subsequently, no stitches required.
Treatments sessions typically take between 30 to 60 minutes. The procedure must also be provided by a medical professional who has been fully trained.
- +When will I see the results?
You will begin to see results in 6 weeks, which will continue to improve over the next 2 to 3 months as new collagen is produced. Although the threads will slowly dissolve, you will continue to see the treatment benefits for up to 12 – 18 months.
- +What areas can PDO Threads be used to treat?
The threads can be used to treat the following areas:
• Upper and lower cheeks
• Forehead and brows
• Neck and jawline
• Nose to mouth lines
• Marionette lines
- +Is the procedure painful?
Apart from the initial sting of the small local anaesthetic injection procedure the whole treatment area is numb so this treatment is essentially painless.
- +How much does it cost?
The cost of this treatment will vary based on the size of the treatment area.
Treatment prices start from $400. Your Ultimate Aesthetics Cosmetic Nurse will advise you of the exact cost to treat your area of concern during your free consultation.
