PDO Mono Threads

Mono threads treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that uses fine, dissolvable threads to lift and tighten sagging skin without surgery. These threads stimulate collagen production, promoting natural skin tightening and rejuvenation, leaving you with a gracefully refined and sculpted appearance, with diminished fine lines and wrinkles. 

At Clinica Lase, our skilled clinicians carefully position mono threads to achieve the desired lifting effect, resulting in a smoother, more youthful complexion with reduced lines and wrinkles. Contact us today to book a consultation at our Melbourne or Ballarat clinic.

Common Questions About PDO Mono Threads

A mono thread is a temporary cosmetic enhancement designed to tighten and uplift the skin. This procedure is often considered as a non-surgical alternative to traditional cosmetic surgeries.

Mono threads are crafted from a substance called polydioxanone, an absorbable polymer that’s both flexible and durable. These threads encourage collagen production, resulting in a firming effect lasting between 6-12 months post procedure. Mono threads act as a structure of your face, encouraging natural collagen production to take place. Over time, the body will fully absorb the PDO.

Before PDO mono threads, it’s crucial to follow all pre-care advice from the clinic.  Recommendations typically include: 

  • Avoid alcohol and smoking.
  • Plan your procedure at least one week before any significant events.
  • Avoid taking any anti-inflammatory medications (consult your doctor if necessary).
  • Avoid treatment if there are active infections in the area to be treated.

During mono threads treatment, a topical anesthetic is first applied. Matrix PDO threads are then inserted using a microneedle. Please note that this treatment is a customised procedure and your physician will work closely with you to achieve optimal results.

Even with the topical anaesthetic, you might feel slight discomfort during mono threads treatments. Post-treatment, it’s also common to notice a bit of tenderness in the treated areas for a few days.

You can expect some bruising and swelling after mono threads treatment, which will go down within a few days. The treated areas may remain tender for about 1-2 weeks. Applying ice can help soothe the treatment areas. 

It’s recommended to follow the below guidance for mono threads aftercare:

  • Avoid applying oil based moisturiser or make up for 24 hours.
  • Sleep on your back and keep your head elevated for the first 3 nights. 
  • Avoid facial treatments or massages for 3 weeks post treatment.
  • Avoid using saunas for 3 weeks.
  • Avoid Lasers, IPL, or RF treatments in the treated area for 12 weeks after your procedure.

Some individuals might notice bruising in the treated areas. 

Outcomes are typically assessed and visible by 12 weeks. 

After getting mono threads, you should avoid making exaggerated facial expressions such as chewing, talking, or yawning for three weeks. Normal facial movements are fine. 

Please refrain from strenuous sports for 3 weeks. 

Scheduling a follow up treatment every 12 months is advisable for maintaining your results. 

Visible results begin at 5 weeks and continue to improve over the following 6 months as new collagen forms. Although PDO threads gradually dissolve, effects can last up to 12 months. 

For an accurate cost estimate, it’s essential to book a consultation with your cosmetic physician.
