Cheek, eye, jowl, and neck fat all diminish with age. As we age, the elastic fibres in our skin shrink, resulting in a loss of facial elasticity. The “facial structure” becomes less stable as a result of the two processes, leading to sagging of the skin and wrinkles.
To do a thread lift, surgical threads are used to raise the area of sagging skin manually. Threads can be used to rejuvenate the face by tightening and lifting sagging areas and counteract the effects of ageing.
PDO (Mint Threads) and PLLA (Silhouette Soft Threads) are the two common types of thread materials, and both are used by Dr. Sheila depending on your treatment goals and assessment of your facial tissues.
PDO Threads are made from Polydioxanone, an absorbable polymer that is both flexible and durable and has already been used successfully in surgical sutures. In addition to stimulating collagen growth, the Polydioxanone substance safely and naturally degrades in the body, producing a tightening effect within the skin for up to a year following treatment. Dr. Sheila uses Mint PDO threads.
Over time, the PDO thread will be totally absorbed by the body, having served as a support structure for your face and encouraging the creation of collagen and hyaluronic acid.
Threads come in a variety of sizes, from very short to extremely long. The collagen-stimulating and strengthening effects of PDO threads are their most common uses. These can be organised in vector lines to generate lifting, or they can be buried to create a lipolysis effect.
Lifting threads have tiny little hooks that holds the skin after being inserted, providing a more noticeable upward force against gravity.
Both PDO Mint Thread Lift and MINT mono threads are provided by Dr. Sheila.
PDO thread lifts are increasing in popularity due to the many advantages of the treatment, including:
Additionally, collagen stimulation and neovascularization may help patients see improvements in skin texture, fine wrinkles, and suppleness, leading to a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Following a full consultation and bespoke plan, Mint PDO threads range from £1600-£3999

Threads are known for their long-lasting results. The effects should continue for at least a year, and when they start to fade, you can get another treatment to keep your skin looking young.
PDO threads are suitable for most facial areas, including
PDO Threads in a non invasive procedure which mean that the treatment is relatively painless as a local anaesthetic is used to completely numb the area.
Most thread lift patients do indeed combine it with additional procedures to maximise their results, such as Ultherapy to tighten the skin beforehand and dermal filler injections to plump up the skin afterward. After your thread lift procedure, you can return for these additional services at your follow-up appointment. Dr Sheila will carry out a full consultation and advise you on the best plan for you skin.
