What are PDO threads?
Some of the most common effects of ageing are poor skin quality and laxity. Until recently, the only way to tighten and lift your skin was with cosmetic injectables or invasive surgery. Now with our Matrix PDO threads in Trinity Beach, you can counteract the early signs of ageing, by improving contouring and tightening the skin around the face and neck.
At Jade Cosmetic Clinic we only use the latest TGA-approved threads and all treatments are performed by our highly trained Registered Cosmetic Nurses. Read on to find out more about PDO threads and why they have become one of the most popular skin treatments in the cosmetic industry since their release in 2017.
PDO threads are made of Polydioxanone, a clinically proven material already used in surgical sutures. These tiny threads are flexible and durable and do not require any cutting, sutures or general anaesthetic. They are used for thread facelifts as they naturally and safely break down and dissolve in the body.
The benefits of PDO
PDO thread treatment helps improve your skin quality and laxity by gradually stimulating the natural production of collagen. The many benefits of PDO threads include:
- Increased production of collagen
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin rejuvenation
- Balance any asymmetrical facial features
- Tighten loose and sagging areas
- Give your face a contoured and lifted look
- Enhance your natural beauty
- No need for invasive surgery
- Non-permanent and dissolvable
- Minimal downtime
- Suitable for men and women
PDO threads naturally and safely break down and dissolve in
the body so there is no need for any cutting or sutures.
Is a PDO thread treatment right for me?
If you’re happy with your facial volume, have mild to moderate skin laxity and are looking for a way to lift and tighten your skin, then you may be a good candidate for a PDO thread lift. At your initial consultation, one of our Registered Cosmetic Nurses will explain in detail everything about the procedure, which will give you the opportunity to determine if it’s right for you.
Which areas can a PDO thread lift treat?
Matrix PDO threads can improve skin texture, tighten the skin and create a subtle lift in a number of different areas:
- Neck and jawline
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Upper and lower cheeks
- Crows feet
- Smile lines
- Lip lines
- Forehead and brows
How are PDO thread lifts carried out at
Jade Cosmetic Clinic in Trinity Beach?
If you chose to have your PDO threads with us in Trinity Beach, this is what you can expect:
At your initial consultation, one of our highly experienced Registered Cosmetic Nurses will first carry out a full facial assessment in order to suggest a treatment plan that is best suited for you. They will then discuss all aspects of the treatment (including any possible complications) and confirm the total cost of the procedure. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions or address any concerns you may have.
Firstly we will apply a local anaesthetic and ice to the treatment area in order to minimise any discomfort. The threads are then inserted into the skin in a mesh-like pattern, producing a tightening effect. The procedure typically takes between 30 to 60 minutes but this will vary depending on the size of the area that’s being treated.
After approximately 6 weeks you will begin to see the results of your treatment. However, the results will continue to improve over the next 2 to 6 months as new collagen is produced, further lifting and tightening your skin. Although the threads will slowly dissolve naturally, you’ll continue to see results for up to 12 months.
How much does a PDO thread lift cost in Trinity Beach?
The total cost for your thread lift will depend on the size of the treatment area and the number of threads used. You will be given accurate cost at your initial consultation, however, PDO threads start from:
- 1-30 – $30 per thread
- 31-50 – $20 per thread
- 51-99 – $15 per thread
- 100 and above – $13 per thread

If you require any further information please don’t hesitate to contact us today:
There are a number of advantages of having a thread lift over facelift surgery. A thread lift is less invasive, more cost-effective and has a much lower risk of complications than a surgical facelift. A thread lift also requires much less downtime than invasive surgery.
Pain is subjective, however, most of our clients would consider it to be of minimal discomfort. To make it as comfortable as possible for our clients we use a local anaesthetic cream and ice on the treatment area before we start the procedure.
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.
A PDO thread lift is regarded as a safe procedure as it is minimally invasive and therefore there is 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.
Yes, PDO threads can be combined with other procedures. They are sometimes combined with dermal fillers or anti-wrinkle injections, depending on the results you’re looking to achieve. You can discuss the possibility of combining treatments at your initial consultation.
There is only minimal downtime needed after a thread lift, however, we do recommend that you wait at least a week before you undertake any strenuous physical activity or exercise.
