Conducted by the experts at Cutis, the PDO Thread Lift lifts your facial contours while tightening skin and stimulating new collagen production. What’s new in this procedure is the use of a blunt- tipped cannula – an ultra- thin tube with a rounded tip – which does not damage blood vessels and hence reduces any risk of bruising or swelling.

Over time, the threads are completely absorbed and the growth of new collagen fibres is stimulated, prolonging the effects of skin tightening and firming.
