Forehead & Frown Lines

Collagen is what keeps our skin youthful looking through our 20s, but once our collagen levels start to decrease, skin begins to lose volume and elasticity. This is what causes forehead wrinkles. A PDO thread lift will elevate the forehead in strategic areas to smooth out wrinkles and make you look younger. Thread lifts can be used instead of Botox, or in combination with this treatment. Your practitioner will guide you as to the best options for your individual skin, depending on how and where in the face you are ageing.

About PDO thread lifts

This nonsurgical alternative to a permanent facelift involves threads being administered into deep skin layers of your face in targeted areas to rejuvenate your appearance. Sagging areas will be lifted giving you results similar to a surgical procedure, but without any scarring. A PDO thread lift will:

Elevate the skin mechanically

Speed up cell regeneration through increased collagen levels, and improve the texture of your skin, and skin elasticity.

Fat tissue will contract, giving your skin a younger tighter look.

The PDO threads will be absorbed by your facial tissue approximately 6 months after the treatment. However, although the threads themselves will have disappeared, the results of the thread lift will be visible for 12-18 months. This is due to the effect of the increase in collagen production that the threads stimulate.

Frequently Asked Questions

Both of these treatments can be used to correct forehead and frown lines, but thread lifts offer the added benefit of increasing collagen levels, to improve the quality and freshness of your skin. Our practitioner will be able to advise you on which treatment should offer you the best results.

The threads will be placed according to where lift is needed. Everyone ages slightly differently and the thread location will be picked to suit your individual treatment.

Anaesthetic is used during a PDO thread lift to ensure that the treatment isn’t painful.

Following a forehead lift, your face will look rejuvenated. Your forehead will have tighter skin and be free from wrinkles, giving you rested, more youthful appearance.
