  • Do not expect immediate results - please read full information on realistic results on the PDO treatment page

  • Realistic results are a crucial element of PDO Thread therapy. Generally, post-treatment, you will have some immediate results.  With all thread types, however, collagen production takes time and results will continue to improve over the following 2-3 months, lasting up to 18 months depending on the nature of the treatment. The thread itself will dissolve entirely after approximately six months. 

  • Mono Threads take up 8-10 weeks to take effect.

  • Post treatment you will feel numb in the treated area due to the local anaesthetic used, this is completely normal and will wear off within 2 hours post treatment. 

  • Avoid rubbing or touching the treated area for 48 hours post treatment.

  • Avoid Makeup for 12 hours on the treated area.

  • Avoid Alcohol and smoking for 24 hours post treatment.

  • Avoid extreme heat or cool temperatures for one week post treatment. Spas, Saunas, Ice Baths etc.

  • Avoid exercise on the day of treatment.

  • Avoid AHAs, Retinol, Chemical Peels, Laser and Hydro/ Micro dermabrasion for 2 weeks post treatment. 

  • Apply cool compress to relive swelling if required. Please do not put ice directly on the treated area. 

  • While you may experience no side effects at all all, common side effects such as pain, redness, swelling, bruising, itching, firmness or discolouration at the treatment site for up to 7 days post treatment.

  • The treated area may feel lumpy for 4-6 weeks post treatment. This is completely normal. 

  • We highly recommend you return for a post treatment review at 4 weeks to ensure you have optimum results.

  • Please remember PDO threads are not cosmetic surgery, in rare cases we may recommend a second treatment for the best possible results. 

Should you experience excessive pain the the site, severe discolouration or just have a question or query please contact Nurse Leah on 0403 084 050 as soon as possible.  

We ask you attend your four week post treatment review to ensure you have the best possible outcome.

Should you not be able to attend your four week review in person, we ask to schedule a Zoom or FaceTime Review.
