What Are PDO Mono Threads?

PDO Mono Threads by Mondeal is TGA-approved and highly regarded for its safety and efficacy. With a promising track record and clinically proven results, this treatment offers a non-surgical, fast approach to anti-ageing.

PDO threads are smooth, microscopic threads that are inserted into precise areas of the skin to stimulate collagen and produce natural anti-ageing results. They are made from a dissolvable suture material (polydioxanone) that works to lift and support the facial skin and subcutaneous tissue. The threads create immediate tightening effects whilst encouraging your skin to produce more collagen. This means the results will continue improving after treatment while your body naturally absorbs the substance.

Due to our doctor’s and nurse’s expertise in collagen stimulator treatments, PDO Mono thread treatments at Ocean Cosmetics result in a naturally tighter and smoother skin appearance that leaves you feeling more youthful.

Benefits

PDO Mono threads cause minimal tissue trauma and delay the ageing process by at least nine months. The treatment is associated with minimal side effects and downtime, with results that create a more naturally youthful and revitalised appearance. A PDO Mono thread treatment:

  • Enhances skin elasticity and firmness
  • Brightens skin tone
  • Stimulates skin rejuvenation and vitality
  • Is clinically tested and proven treatment
  • Offers natural, lasting results
  • Improves the appearance of wrinkles and saggy skin

During your consultation with Dr Gina, she will guide you through the process and offer quality recommendations based on years of clinical experience, whilst taking your personal situation and needs into account.

The Procedure

On the day of your treatment, a doctor or nurse will administer a topical anaesthetic to ensure that you do not feel discomfort. After this, the treatment itself will take around 30 minutes, but this can depend on the extent of the procedure and how many areas need to be addressed. It also depends on how many threads you require.

Common treatment areas include:

  • Eyebrow tightening
  • Tear troughs
  • Refining the cheeks
  • Restore a sagging chin and jawline
  • Smoothing nasolabial folds
  • Tightening the neck

Our doctors and nurses skillfully approache the skin at a specific angle, administering the thread through the dermis and into the superficial sub-dermal layer. This is done in a careful pattern to create the desired lifting and rejuvenating effects. The process triggers collagen production which helps restore the skin to a firm, flexible state.

“This is an incredible treatment as the results can last up to 12 months. They make a great compliment to dermal fillers for complete facial rejuvenation.”

– Dr Gina Messiha Cosmetic Doctor MB BS FRACGP

Aftercare and Risks

After your treatment, the threads are naturally absorbed into your body after a period of three to four months. Some bruising and swelling can occur, but these symptoms should subside in about two weeks, leaving you with firmer, healthier skin. Your doctor or nurse will give you specific instructions on what to do after your treatment in order to reduce risks and get the best results. For instance, you may be advised to:

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is the treatment suitable for?

You will need to speak with Dr Gina before your procedure to make sure you are a good candidate. You may not be suitable if you have inflammation, active infections in areas to be treated, a tendency for keloid scarring, or if you are pregnant.

How can I reduce any risks?

You can reduce your risk of adverse effects by following Dr Gina’s aftercare instructions closely and getting adequate rest after treatment. It is important to avoid smoking after treatment, as smoking inhibits healing and increases risks.

How long does it take for the threads to absorb?

Your threads will be gradually absorbed during the three to four months after your treatment via natural systems in your body.

When will I see results?

You will be able to see initial improvement, as the threads will strengthen the tissue in the area. However, due to the slow increase in collagen, it can take several months to see the full results.

Will I need follow-up sessions?

Top-up Mint Mono thread treatments can be an option if you wish to maintain your results. Since results typically last around 12 months, Dr Gina may recommend follow-up treatments after a 12-month period.
