Collagen Boost PDO Smooth Threads

Collagen Boost threads are fine collagen threads which are inserted within the layers of the skin, that stimulate and accelerate your own collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid providing instant results that improve over time, with no downtime. The treatment is ideal for anyone looking to improve the quality, tone, and texture of their skin. 

The treatment involves the placement of smooth, absorbable threads underneath the skin. The threads contain polydioxanone (PDO) which is a biodegradable polymer that is slowly absorbed by your body over time. It takes between 60 - 90 minutes (plus 45 minutes of numbing cream prep), however the treatment can be completed in as little as 45 minutes (plus numbing time), and requires 1-2 days of downtime once completed. 

The threads dissolve over time, creating collagen in the treated area, resulting in a firmer, plumper and more youthful complexion.

Collagen Boost can be performed in most areas of the face, jaw and chin, and also as a full face treatment. Results are visible immediately and last for up to 12 months as the threads naturally dissolve and are broken down by your body. Annual treatments are recommended for optimum results.
