One of the most popular treatments available, Matrix PDO Mono Threads treatments can help you achieve the results of a facelift without the cost, risk, or recovery time. Mono threads are injected non-invasively underneath the skin in a mesh-like pattern to support your facial structure, stimulating collagen production to effectively tighten and lift the skin.
The latest aesthetic rejuvenation treatment to arrive in Australia, PDO (polydioxanone) mono threads is designed to encourage your skin’s natural collagen production, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to achieve natural-looking results. Since being approved by the Therapeutic Goods Association (TGA), PDO mono threads have become one of the most popular non-invasive treatments able to accomplish similar results to a face or neck lift. It aims to improve your skin’s overall structure, which can deteriorate over time as your body struggles to produce higher amounts of collagen. This lack of collagen contributes to sagging skin developing around the neck and face and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. A PDO threads treatment will tighten and firm your skin as it promotes collagen and elastin production, rejuvenating and enhancing your appearance to a healthier, more youthful version of you.

Matrix PDO mono threads are made from polydioxanone, an absorbable polymer that’s flexible and durable. These threads are smooth and minimally invasive, unlike thread lifts which use a long barb thread to lift the tissue. A PDO mono thread treatment is designed as a support structure for your face to allow natural collagen production. It involves inserting Matrix mono threads into the sub-dermal layer of your skin in a mesh-like pattern to stimulate this collagen production. This creates a tightening effect that rejuvenates and adds volume to the skin as collagen production gradually increases. However, while the mono threads tighten, they do not significantly lift the skin.
Matrix PDO mono threads are a highly customisable treatment that can target your specific skin concerns without treating the whole area, depending on your desired outcomes. The treatment can tighten sagging skin in the upper and lower cheeks, neck, jawline, decolletage, arms, and abdomen. It can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that can appear around the forehead, nose, and mouth.
There are numerous benefits Matrix PDO mono threads can provide patients, including:
Improve Skin Laxity
Other benefits include:
If you may be experiencing the early signs of aging, especially in your facial and neck area, and would like a non-invasive, immediate treatment, then Matrix PDO mono threads may be a suitable option for you. However, more severe signs of aging, such as drooping excess skin, may require a traditional face or neck lift. This can be discussed in-depth at a consultation with our trained expert doctors and nurses.
A topical anaesthetic is applied to reduce discomfort before the procedure begins. Once administered, the PDO threads – each thinner than a single human hair – are inserted in a mesh-like pattern using a microneedle. No incisions or stitches are required for this treatment, hence why it is considered minimally invasive. It can be highly customised with your goals in mind, as your consultant will work with you to achieve optimal results.
Your procedure time will vary based on several factors, including the size of the treatment area, but mono thread sessions can typically take between 30-60 mins. It is recommended that you book your treatment roughly three to four weeks before an event or special occasion, as bruising and swelling will be present for a few days.
Your tightened and revitalised appearance created by PDO mono threads can last for 6-12 months as the threads are slowly absorbed, leaving an established matrix of new collagen in its place that will plump and rejuvenate your skin.

Bruising and swelling are expected but will resolve in the first few days after your treatment. There may also be mild tenderness in the treated areas for approximately 1-2 weeks. It is recommended that you sleep on your back and elevate your head for the first three nights. Ice can be applied to soothe areas of treatment if required.
Flawless Rejuvenation will conduct a post-treatment review after 12 weeks following your treatment to monitor your healing and ensure the best possible results are achieved.
To prepare for a PDO mono threads treatment, follow these guidelines:
You may notice some immediate tightening after a PDO mono thread treatment, but your skin won’t show the full results until approximately 12 weeks after treatment. These results will continue to improve over the next six months as your skin continues to produce new collagen and will last for up to 12 months.
The treatment starts at $600. We can discuss treatment areas, costs, and treatment plans on consultation.
