What are PDO threads?

Poor skin quality and skin laxity are common signs of ageing that many individuals experience. In the past, our options were limited to injectable treatments or invasive surgical procedures. However, at Jade Cosmetic Clinic in Brisbane, we now offer Matrix PDO threads, a revolutionary and highly effective non-surgical solution for skin tightening and lifting.

Since their introduction in 2017, PDO threads have gained widespread popularity worldwide. Our clinic utilises the latest TGA-approved threads, which are expertly performed by our highly trained Registered Cosmetic Nurses.

PDO threads consist of Polydioxanone, an absorbable polymer that resembles a tiny surgical suture, thinner than a strand of hair. These flexible and durable threads do not require any cutting, sutures, or general anaesthesia. Moreover, they entail minimal downtime after treatment, allowing you to quickly resume your routine activities.

Experience the transformative benefits of Matrix PDO threads at Jade Cosmetic Clinic in Brisbane. Our team is dedicated to helping you achieve firmer and more youthful-looking skin without the need for surgery.

Before & After Photos

Below you can see some of the results that our previous patients have achieved after having PDO threads at Jade Cosmetic Clinic. 

Benefits of a PDO thread
lift procedure

PDO threads lift the skin, contract surrounding tissue & stimulate the production of collagen. The result is tighter skin, improved skin texture and fewer lines. The threads dissolve naturally on their own, however, the results are ongoing. The numerous benefits of PDO threads include:

  • Increased natural collagen production
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brightens skin tone
  • Redefines facial features
  • Tighten loose and sagging skin
  • Contoured and lifted look
  • Non-surgical alternative
  • Non-permanent and dissolvable
  • Minimal downtime

PDO thread treatment has become one of the most popular
skin treatments to lift and tighten skin.

Am I a good candidate for a PDO thread lift?

PDO threads are perfect for both men & women who already have an adequate facial volume with mild to moderate skin laxity. They are ideal for clients that don’t want extra “volume” but require skin tightening and lift.

Which areas can a PDO thread lift treat?

Matrix PDO threads offer us a new and unique way to improve skin texture, tighten the skin and create a subtle lift. Treatment possibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Neck and jawline
  • Marionette lines (corners of the mouth)
  • Nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines)
  • Upper and lower cheeks
  • Crows feet
  • Smile lines
  • Lip lines
  • Forehead and brows
  • Abdomen

How are PDO thread lifts carried out
at Jade Cosmetic Clinic in Brisbane?

If you chose to have your PDO threads with us in Brisbane, this is what you can expect:


At your initial consultation, one of our experienced Registered Cosmetic Nurses will carry out a full facial assessment to create a treatment plan best suited for you. They will discuss all the details of the treatment, including the costs and any possible complications and give you the opportunity to ask any questions or address any concerns you may have.


The procedure typically takes between 30 to 60 minutes but this will vary depending on the size of your treatment area. After a local anaesthetic and ice is applied to the area the threads are inserted into the skin in a mesh-like pattern, producing a tightening effect.


You will begin to see results in 6 weeks which will continue to improve over the next 2 to 6 months as new collagen is produced. Although the Matrix PDO threads will slowly dissolve, you’ll continue to see results for up to 12 months.

How much does a PDO Thread lift cost in Brisbane?

The total cost for PDO threads will vary, as the number of threads inserted is dependent on the size of the treatment area. An accurate cost will be provided to you upon consultation with one of our highly trained Registered Nurses. However, PDO thread prices start from:

  • 1-30 – $30 per thread
  • 31-50 – $20 per thread
  • 51-99 – $15 per thread
  • 100 and above – $13 per thread

PDO threads stimulate the natural production of collagen
which has a tightening and smoothing effect on the skin.

why choose us


Below you can find the questions we get most frequently asked about PDO thread treatments.

Yes, a PDO thread lift is very safe. Due to the fact that the treatment is minimally invasive, there is very little risk of scarring, bruising, bleeding or any other complications. There will likely be some degree of swelling, bruising and mild discomfort after treatment but this is completely normal.

Although the Matrix PDO threads will slowly dissolve, you’ll continue to see results for up to 12 months.

Pain is obviously subjective, however, most of our clients would consider it to be of minimal discomfort. Local anaesthetic cream and ice are used prior to treatment.

Depending on the area treated, it is expected there will be some degree of swelling, bruising and mild discomfort. For some people, this does not affect their daily routine, but others may want to schedule their appointment around their social and work commitments.

Yes, the effects of a thread lift can be reversed with other forms of treatment, however, a thread lift reversal is not recommended.

Due to the minimal downtime required, most patients are able to resume the majority of their daily activities immediately after treatment. However, we do recommend waiting at least a week before you undertake any strenuous physical activity or exercise.

Yes, PDO threads are often combined with dermal filler treatments to reverse and reduce the signs of ageing. The PDO threads smooth and tighten the skin and the dermal filler restores volume loss. 

Mono threads are smooth and without barbs and double screw threads come in the form of two threads intertwined together around the inserting needle.
