What are Matrix PDO Threads?
Matrix PDO Threads are a method of tightening and thickening skin. They are a are smooth thread made from Polydioxanone and are inserted under your skin in a mesh-like pattern to promote the creation of new collagen. The threads activate collagen production which results in a gradual skin thickening, skin tightening and rejuvenation effect. The threads become a support structure that allows collagen production to increase.
They are minimally invasive and can also be used multiple times.
Results may be seen in 6 weeks and will continue to improve over 2 to 6 months. While the threads slowly dissolve, their effects may last up to 12 months.
Which areas can be treated?
Many areas of the face, neck and body can be treated with Matrix PDO threads. Some of these areas include:
* Upper and lower cheeks
* Jawline and neck
* Forehead and brows
* Nose to mouth lines
* Marionette lines
How long until I see results of the Matrix mono threads?
You will begin to see results within 6 weeks of your treatment. These results will continue to improve over the next 2 to 6 months as new collagen is produced.
How long do the results last?
Matrix mono threads help to create new collagen that supports your face and creates a tightening effect that lasts 6 -12 months after your treatment. The results vary depending on lifestyle factors such as smoking, alcohol, exercise etc. It is recommended to have another Matrix mono thread treatment 6 months after the initial treatment to maintain the tightening effects.
Does the procedure hurt?
Topical anaesthetic will be applied before the Matrix mono thread treatment, so you experience minimal discomfort during the procedure. You may experience a firm feeling and some tenderness in the area that has been treated for a few days after the procedure.
How long does the Matrix mono thread treatment take?
The time of the treatment will vary based on factors, such as the size of the area being treated, but will typically take anywhere between 30 – 60 minutes.
What is the downtime for this procedure?
A Matrix mono thread treatment may produce swelling and bruising in the area that has been treated, which will subside.
