Non-surgical HanBang facelift - PDO Lifting Threads

An equally effective alternative to surgical lifting?


Extremely effective lifting effects – introduced into the natural skin tension lines, the threads produce an immediate effect similar to that of a surgical facelift;

Supple, resilient and elastic skin – the thread stimulates the production of new collagen and reduces the laxity of body tissues;

Smoothing of facial contours, more naturally than with botulinum toxin – the procedure retains natural facial expressions and, if needed, delicately numbs the facial muscles;

Permanent effects up to 2 years – visibly younger and brighter skin, smoothed out wrinkles thanks to the synthesis of natural proteins, which lasts for up to 8 months after the treatment;

No traces of the procedure – the thread, placed on a thin and sterile guide, leaves no scars or incisions;

An extremely safe and painless procedure – performed under local anaesthesia, the procedure lasts for 30-60 minutes. The threads are completely dissolvable and hence cause no scars or adhesions.

About the procedure


Revitalisation – First Lift – a straight, thin thread used for improving the texture, density and elasticity of delicate skin. It is used for removing fine wrinkles, shadows around the eyes and “smoker's wrinkles”, and finds application in mesotherapy. It can be used on the face, neck, neckline, upper arms, buttocks and abdomen.

Delicate lifting and regeneration effects – First Lift Screw – a twisted thread used for stronger stimulation of thicker skin. It provides slight lifting effects and is ideal for use on the forehead and cheeks to lift facial contours and smooth out nasolabial furrows.

Lifting and stimulation – First Lift Barb 4D – a unique PDO thread with a specially developed system of microscopic hooks, densely spaced in two directions (“four dimensions”, hence the name of the threads). Once implanted under the skin, the hooks open up, raising the drooping tissues and thus providing a strong lifting effect. The thread dissolves in the body within 210 days, intensely stimulating the production of new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, thereby increasing the suppleness and firmness of the skin. First Lift Barb 4D is suitable for lifting the forehead, eyebrows, cheeks and jawline.

First Lift is a procedure dedicated to patients over 30 years of age.

Dissolvable PDO Lifting Threads – Non-surgical HanBang facelift

The PDO Lifting Threads stimulate the production of new collagen and improve skin suppleness, elasticity and flexibility, thereby linking the natural hyaluronic acid. After the application of the PDO threads, the skin also becomes better moisturised.

The PDO threads may be applied almost all over the body. The application process is practically non-invasive and painless. It takes from 30 minutes to 1 hour and leaves no scars or incisions. Minor bruises may appear immediately after the HanBang lifting procedure. However, they subside within a few days.

Non-surgical PDO lifting (HanBang Facelift)

The technique of inserting the PDO threads is based on the natural skin tension lines, which additionally produces an effect similar to that of a surgical facelift. After the introduction of the PDO threads into the skin, its appearance is immediately improved.

However, the actual process of new collagen formation begins after 10-14 days, and it is only after 4 weeks that the real effects of the therapy become visible. New collagen is formed as long as the threads are present in the body (up to 240 days), thereby gradually improving the appearance. The aesthetic effects usually last for up to 24 months.

A lasting effect of the PDO Threads

The PDO threads give a long-lasting filling effect and constitute an ideal alternative to other fillers. They are most commonly used for filling the nasolabial furrows and wrinkles on the neck and forehead. One of the most important advantages of the PDO lifting threads is that they can be used practically everywhere in the body, not merely on the face, but also to improve skin structure on the elbows, knees, abdomen, buttocks, neckline or breasts.

By using lifting threads, we strengthen the saggy tissues. Due to the short dissolution time of the threads, there is no risk of thickening or scarring as in the case of fibres with large diameters and threads with long-term biodegradability (over a year). The aesthetic effect after the application of the PDO threads is very natural.

HanBang facelift without a trace

The PDO lifting thread is placed on a safe, sterile and very thin guide (the so-called cannula), which is used to insert the thread into specific areas on the facial skin. In the case of breasts, buttocks, abdomen and legs, a fine needle is most commonly used for this purpose.

The procedure usually takes 30–60 minutes and starts by applying a local anaesthetic (in the form of a cream). Patients can resume their daily activities immediately after the treatment.

PDO Threads – strengthening the tissues

The dissolvable PDO lifting threads are a revolutionary solution amongst the non-invasive methods of skin rejuvenation available on the aesthetic medicine market. PDO (polydioxanone) is a strong synthetic fibre consisting of one or two solid twisted fibres that dissolve in the tissue after some time.

The system of PDO lifting threads was developed 5 years ago in South Korea, where it was observed that the presence of the PDO threads in a tissue, combined with acupuncture, strengthened the body's muscles and tendons. Initially, the PDO threads were mainly used for stitching the skin and subcutaneous layers in plastic surgery, gastroenterology, urology, gynaecology and ophthalmology.

Non-surgical HanBang facelift – the highest level of safety

After 3 years, the method was also used in aesthetic medicine. Currently, the HanBang method is used, amongst others, in Japan, Brazil, Russia and the USA as well as in Western European countries.

The product has a CE safety certificate and can be used across the European Union. It is one of the safest and most effective lifting procedures.
