This new technology is likely to replace the mini face lift as the next generation in face lifting.

PDO Thread Lift

Elysium is proud to introduce the latest in thread lift technology – Cog PDO threads for a mini thread face lift.

How it works

As a person ages, the fat content and skin elasticity in the face reduces. Previously face lifts were performed to tighten the skin giving a more youthful appearance. Now this can be avoided by using barbed threads to pull up the skin in a similar way.

The area is numbed with local anaesthesia, and a barbed thread is placed via a cannula under the skin. This is pulled tight to lift the skin.

The lifting occurs from 2 technologies. Cogs on the threads enable the skin to be pulled tighter in a similar way to a face lift. The PDO slowly dissolves and stimulates collagen production resulting in a collagen thread or tube that prolongs the duration of the lift. Lifts will generally last 1 to 1.5 years.

Cosmetic PhilosophyCosmetic Philosophy

Cosmetic Philosophy

Our cosmetic philosophy is to create a natural looking younger version of yourself. We aim to enhance existing features, replace areas of loss and rewind the changes of time. If any cosmetic enhancement is immediately discernible or obviously unnatural then we regard the job as being poorly performed. The onlooker should always be wondering whether the look is natural or enhanced. Our aim is to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of all the cosmetic procedures and techniques available. This includes procedures I do not use but may be appropriate to your circumstances. These will be presented to you showing the expected benefit and a cost comparison with other procedures and treatments
