Dr Edwards Aesthetics offer two types of thread treatment:
- Silhouette Soft® threads are suspension threads which are inserted under the skin and hold the newly tensioned skin in position with small cones which are attached to the threads. These threads will be gradually absorbed over time. This procedure gives a natural looking long lasting result.
- PDO (Polydioxanone) thread procedures involve inserting absorbable threads under the skin. Some of these threads are designed to lift and tighten sagging skin tissues immediately, other fine PDO threads act as a scaffold for the tissue, promoting natural collagen production.
Thread treatments are increasingly popular because the results can last up to 18 months. When the threads are eventually absorbed, new collagen is left in their place. Threads can be used in treating most areas of the face and neck.
