How it Works

Sometimes our skin needs a little pick-me-up, that’s why a Mono Thread treatment is ideal for rejuvenation!

Threads are placed under the skin via needle in the lower part of the face, neck, jaw and jowls once a topical numbing cream is applied for your comfort. Made from polydioxanone (PDO), the threads eventually dissolve while stimulating collagen and elastin production, creating a tightening effect.

Once the needle is removed the threads remain in place for up to six months and then slowly dissolve. They start dissolving at approximately 3 months but the collagen stimulation can last up to 12 months. This long-lasting effect is due to improvement of the skin condition due to the stimulation of collagen and elastin.

After treatment clients feel a refreshed and voluminous effect as the skin feels and appears tighter and firmer.

Consultation + Aftercare

What to expect:

Before starting your treatment, you will need a consultation with the Injecting Practitioner who will conduct an online consultation with the Prescribing Practitioner. From the consultation, an assessment of your treatment plan and prescription will be completed.

The procedure may take between 30-60 minutes, and the area is numbed for your comfort, with the amount of injections administered dependent on the amount of product and desired result from the treatment.

The area will feel tender to touch, it’s best to avoid touching the area for at least 2 hours post-treatment for the injection sites to heal. Swelling is to be expected in the treatment area for up to 2 days post-treatment; using a cool compress can be used to help with comfort.

Immediate aftercare:

  • Sleep elevated and on your back to help reduce swelling (use multiple pillows).
  • Bruising can occur after treatment and can last for up to 2 weeks, use Arnica tablets, cream or spray to reduce the signs, or Yellow LED light therapy.
  • Paracetamol can be used for pain relief, avoiding ibuprofen as swelling is part of the healing process.
  • Avoid exercise, hot showers, sauna, steam rooms and spas, prolonged sun exposure and excessive alcohol consumption for 48 hours post-treatment.
  • Book a review with your Cosmetic Nurse 2-4 weeks post-treatment

  • Injection into areas of infection or inflammation

During your consultation, your treating medical professional will assess your medical history and skin for suitability for treatment.

PDO Mono treatments are relatively risk-free, however around 10% of patients may experience unwanted side effects a few days after receiving the treatment which could include:

Bruising and discomfort around the injected area.

Headaches, nausea and in the worst cases experience flu-like symptoms.

Please refer to our price list for pricing on Mono Threads. Alternatively, call one of our trained technicians at any of our SILK locations for pricing.

An improvement may be observed immediately after treatment with a visible plumping effect in the treated areas. 14 days is recommended for full effect.

This will improve over a period of 2-6 months as new collagen is produced between the threads, thereby exerting further tightening to the skin.

Mono threads dissolve within approx. 200 days, however they induce new collagen by release of growth factors and fibroblast activation which can last for 6 months- 1 year depending on the patient’s condition.

Retreatment is recommended at approx. 6 months
