Matrix PDO Mono Threads

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.

How it works

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.

The Benefits

There are numerous benefits Matrix PDO mono threads can provide patients, including:

Improve Skin Laxity

Reduce Pigmentation

Other benefits include:

  • Better overall skin quality, including texture
  • Skin tightening and firmness to those hard-to-treat areas
  • Minimally invasive compared to face or neck lifts, and other thread treatments
  • Long-lasting results as mono threads are designed to trigger your body’s natural processes
  • Quick and immediate, the treatment takes 45-60 minutes and produces an immediately noticeable difference in your skin

Ideal candidates for Matrix PDO Mono Threads

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.

What to expect

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.

Things to consider

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.


What should I do before the procedure?

To prepare for a PDO mono threads treatment, follow these guidelines:

  • Avoid alcohol and smoking for up to one week before treatment
  • Avoid taking anti-inflammatory medication (consult with your doctor prior if necessary)
  • Ensure there are no active infections or inflammation present on your body
  • Consider getting any dental work done before treatment as you won’t be able to for at least two weeks post-treatment
  • Avoid vigorous exercise for at least three days beforehand
  • Do not visit saunas or use hot tubs for at least three days prior

When will I see the results?

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.

How much does PDO cost?

The treatment starts at $600. We can discuss treatment areas, costs, and treatment plans on consultation.

What should I avoid after my mono threads treatment?

To ensure lasting, optimum results, avoid doing the following after treatment:

  • Do not apply oil-based moisturisers or make-up for 24 hours
  • Do not have any facials, face massages, rub your face for three weeks as this could risk dislodging the threads
  • Avoid saunas for three weeks
  • Avoid laser, IPL or RF in the area treated for 12 weeks
  • Avoid smoking or drinking for at least a week to reduce the chance of bruising
  • Avoid vigorous contact sports for three weeks
