Lip Lift/Lip Wrinkles

Wrinkles and lines around the upper lips and lip-borders are best removed using a PDO thread solution. This is because fillers may prove to be less effective in this area. Often the wrinkles around the lips are small and numerous, making mechanical elevation of them using polydioxanone threads a good solution. The threads will stretch the skin, tighten it and remove the creases. The results of this procedure will last for 12-18 months, giving your face a more youthful look and rejuvenated lips. The increased collagen production the treatment delivers, means that you’ll notice your appearance continually improving for months afterwards, before your new look plateaus. You’ll then maintain your younger appearance until it’s time for a top-up procedure.

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.
