Our Mono Matrix Threads are designed to perform a revitalisation skin treatment. This procedure is advised for skin tightening, skin thickening and to improve skin texture thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Mono threads can be used for: Mid-face, Accordion lines, Eyebrow, Oral commissures, Nasal-labial folds, Jawline and under-chin region along with some parts of the body.
Downtime 3-5 days as bruising may occur
Treatment Time 30 - 60 minutes
A thread lift will provide a lifted, more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. This procedure creates long lasting results through boosting collagen and elastin in the deeper layers of the skin. Procedure time is short with results being most noticeable at 8-12weeks, lasting for 1 - 2 years.
WHAT TO EXPECT
After numbing is applied, the threads are placed carefully under the skin to create a subtle natural pull that makes the skin appear lifted and more youthful. The threads are left in place, creating a gentle lift that continues to improve as they settle into the skin over the coming weeks. You may feel pressure and the threads may sting for a few moments.

HOW IT WORKS
Mono Matrix Threads have become another method of tightening and thickening your skin. Mono Threads differ from thread lifts which use long barbed threads to lift tissues, however they can still provide an improvement of fine lines and wrinkles by gradually stimulating natural collagen production.
Mono Threads are made from a material called Polydioxanone which is an absorbable polymer that is flexible and durable. Matrix PDO Threads induce production of collagen, creating a tightening effect. The threads become a support structure for your face, allowing natural collagen production to take place, over time the PDO will be fully absorbed by the body.
It can be used across the following areas of concern:
• Horizontal and vertical forehead wrinkles - mono
• Forehead lifting- long

Avoid heat based treatments in the treated area for 12 weeks such as lasers on areas treated.
Excessive movement or exercise in the area of the treatment is discouraged.
