What are PDO Threads?

Mono threads are smooth on the surface and are used to address specific areas of the face and body where you would like to improve skin elasticity, skin texture and tightening. Matrix mono threads come in a wide range of sizes to address all parts of the face and body.

Mono threads have become another method of tightening and thickening skin. Mono threads differ from thread lifts which use long barbed threads to lift skin, however, they can still provide an improvement of fine lines and wrinkles by gradually stimulating natural collagen production.

Smoothing Wrinkles

Matrix Mono Threads are a type of single PDO filament. These threads are smooth and made without barbs which are minimally invasive. Many times, Matrix Mono Threads are inserted into the skin in a mesh-like pattern to achieve maximum tightening effects.

After entering the skin, the threads activate collagen synthesis for a gradual skin tightening and skin rejuvenation effect. While Matrix Mono Threads tighten the skin, they do not significantly lift it.

These skin tightening treatments can be used to rejuvenate collagen treating neck sagginess, forehead lines, and facial wrinkles. The threads can also add volume to the cheeks and an average ofl0 to 30 Matrix Mono Threads is typically used for each individual treatment area.

Double Screw PDO Threads

Matrix Screw Threads have 7-2 intertwined threads which provide volume to the treated area. For patients who only desire skin tightening and rejuvenation.

Product Facts

How do they differ from barbed threads?

PDO threads differ from thread lifts, which use long barbed threads to lift tissues. Instead, mono threads provide an improvement of fine lines and wrinkles by gradually stimulating natural collagen production.

There are two different types of Matrix Threads:

  1. Matrix Mono Threads. Matrix Mono Threads are a type of single PDO filament which are smooth and made without barbs. They are inserted into the skin in a mesh-like pattern, producing a tightening effect. While Matrix Mono Threads tighten the skin, they provide no lifting effect.
  2. Matrix Double Screw Threads. Matrix Screw Threads feature a double thread screw, consisting of 1-2 intertwined threads, which provide volume to the area being treated.

They are used by patients who only desire skin tightening and rejuvenation.

What happens during a PDO thread treatment

Topical anaesthetic is applied to the treatment area. The PDO Threads are inserted using a micro-needle or a cannula. There is no incision and subsequently, no stitches required.

Treatments sessions typically take between 30 to 60 minutes. The procedure must also be provided by a medical professional who has been fully trained.

What areas can PDO threads be used to treat?

The threads can be used to treat the following areas:

  • Upper and lower cheek
  • Forehead and brows
  • Neck and jawline
  • Nose to mouth lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Arms
  • Buttocks
  • Abdomen

I had my first ever cosmetic appointment with Nurse Jo 29/09 and I am so happy with the service. My results are still settling but I could see the difference within a week (really happy). I was really nervous but Nurse Jo provided so much information and options, I felt like I was being listened to. Thank you so much Nurse Jo!! Really appreciated the experience & support.

I went to Jo feeling nervous and uncertain of what I wanted after being sent away by another clinic who had no idea! She immediately knew what to do to transform me. No messing around, careful, honest and kind. I’ve woken up a new woman so grateful to have been led by a lady with experience and skill.

I booked an appointment for lip fillers and masseter Botox. My lips were severely asymmetrical so I went to Nurse Jo to have them corrected and could not be happier with the results. I would highly recommend Hamilton Skin Clinic and without a doubt attest to Nurse Jo being the top cosmetic injector in Brisbane. Could not be more grateful!

Couldn’t recommend more! Jo is an exceptional Nurse. She has such an in depth knowledge of what she does and as someone who is new to cosmetic treatments, has always made me feel comfortable and empowered me to make informed decisions by taking the time to explain how everything works. Jo tailors what she does to suit my face and offers alternative approaches to achieving the outcome that I’m wanting. I’ve never felt pressured by her to adjust or get a treatment I wasn’t comfortable with and the results that she creates always exceed my expectations. If you’re looking somewhere to get your next cosmetic treatment that offers friendly and approachable customer service, expertise and will yield amazing results, then look no further than Hamilton Skin Clinic.

As a total novice I was terrified of looking.obviously done up. I was convinced subtlety couldn't really be achieved. I was so nervous about the results of my lip filler looking obvious against my soft features, but Jo worked genuine wonders. The result was believable, soft and subtle, a far cry from the protruding, stretched out lips I was desperate to avoid. I didn't think filler would be for me so I am particularly surprised by how confident I now feel, totally unafraid to see the people I know and love. Thank you, Jo!

What Are Wrinkle Reduction Injections?

Neuromodulators or neurotoxins – the substance used in wrinkle reduction injections – are most well-known for “freezing” wrinkles and lines. They are best used for temporary treatment to smooth wrinkles that form as a result of facial movements like frowning, squinting, and smiling.

Wrinkle reduction injections work by blocking the release of acetylcholine, a chemical that signals muscles to move. They temporarily paralyse those specific muscles that contract, creating common frown lines, crow’s feet, and horizontal lines. 

While there is no real downtime associated with this treatment,  the team at Hamilton Skin Clinic feel it is important to note that you may encounter some slight bruising and swelling directly after treatment on occassions. This can easily be masked by make-up.

There are no long-term side effects of having wrinkle injections, meaning patients can resume their usual activities straight away, and can also fly post-treatment.

The results can last between four to six months depending on your metabolism speed, lifestyle and  many other factors. Expect to see the fantastic results within two to three days following just one treatment, but really kicking in by the second week post-treatment. 

Are Wrinkle Reduction Relaxants or Volumisers Right For Me?

The simple rule? Lines of expression need wrinkle reduction injections. Lines at rest need volumiser. While wrinkle reduction injections are a great choice for hitting those “crease points” where muscles contract, volumisers are best for deep lines that are present even when facial muscles are not contracting.

Hamilton Skin Clinic’s Wrinkle Reduction Injections can product long-term results with benefits including:

  • Reducing wrinkles, creating a younger-looking appearance
  • Non-surgical treatment with little to no downtime
  • Smoothes skin texture
    Effective in treating excessive sweating and migraines
