Eleventh Heaven stands out as one of the pioneering clinics in Brisbane offering cutting-edge collagen-boosting treatments through innovative threads.

These threads, known by various names such as Mint® Threads, PDO Mono, short threads, floating threads, and HIKO Korean threads, represent a popular trend in Korean cosmetics.

This revolutionary approach focuses on stimulating collagen production to address aging concerns effectively.

The result is a subtle, natural enhancement that appeals to those seeking non-volumizing solutions without the use of Volume & Contouring or invasive procedures.

Eleventh Heaven utilises PDO Mono threads for collagen enhancement, with PDO standing for polydioxanone monofilaments commonly used in surgical sutures.

These thread lifts work by kickstarting collagen synthesis upon insertion into the skin, gradually improving skin tightness and rejuvenation.

The outcome is visibly firmer and more youthful-looking skin, providing individuals with a rejuvenated appearance without the need for extensive procedures or Volume & Contouring.

What exactly is a PDO Thread Lift?

PDO Thread lift involves inserting numerous short threads into a specific area with the main goal of gently tightening the skin through mechanical tension provided by the threads.

Additionally, there is a secondary benefit that occurs a few months later as the threads are gradually replaced by collagen fibers.

Who is eligible for treatment using PDO Mono threads?

Individuals who are at least 18 years old, particularly those who already have sufficient volume or desire skin tightening and improved skin quality.

Are there any reasons why treatment may not be suitable?

Yes, treatment cannot be performed if you are currently pregnant, planning to breastfeed, have had recent infections, or have undergone collagen stimulatory treatments other than PDO threads.

What areas can be treated with PDO Thread Lifts?

PDO thread lifts are a sought-after cosmetic treatment that effectively lifts and tightens loose skin in various facial regions.

These minimally invasive procedures involve inserting biodegradable threads under the skin to prompt collagen production, enhancing skin elasticity and firmness.

Common treatment areas include:

  • Cheeks
  • Jawline
  • Jowls
  • and neck.

By acting as a supportive structure, these threads create a subtle yet visible lifting effect without the need for surgery.

Ideal for individuals with mild to moderate signs of aging, PDO thread lifts offer results lasting 1-2 years based on factors like skin health and lifestyle choices.

How long do PDO Thread Lifts take?

The procedure typically takes around 45-60 minutes, including the application of topical anesthesia to minimise discomfort. During the treatment, dissolvable threads made of PDO (polydioxanone) are inserted under the skin to stimulate collagen production.

Collagen is a protein that helps maintain skin elasticity and firmness. As the threads dissolve over time, they promote natural collagen synthesis, leading to long-lasting results. The lifting effect from a PDO thread lift can improve facial contours, reduce sagging skin, and enhance overall facial rejuvenation.

Results are usually noticeable right away and continue to improve over the following weeks as collagen production increases in the treated areas.

Is there any Downtime to PDO Thread Lifts?

PDO thread lifts are a popular cosmetic procedure known for their minimal pain, often performed with topical anesthesia. After the treatment, there may be some downtime of approximately 48 hours, as swelling and bruising can occur. However, these effects can generally be easily concealed with medical-grade makeup.

How many treatments will I need to have?

The procedure is designed to promote collagen production in the skin, leading to tighter and firmer skin over time. For optimal results, it is recommended to undergo PDO thread lift treatments once or twice a year. This regular maintenance helps maintain the lifted appearance and ensures long-lasting benefits for your skin.

Are PDO Thread Lifts worth it?

In conclusion, PDO thread lifts offer a convenient solution for individuals looking to alter their appearance without undergoing invasive surgery.

Despite the short downtime and potential side effects, such as swelling and bruising, these can be easily managed with proper care.

The collagen-boosting benefits of this procedure contribute to long-lasting results and improved skin texture. To learn more about the different types of thread lift treatments offered at Eleventh Heaven, book a consultation today!
