Absorbable thread lifts offer a temporary solution to skin laxity and facial wrinkles caused by aging, without having to undergo a surgical procedure.
Unlike fillers, they work by lifting and pulling skin back to readjust fat rather than replacing lost volume. When placed correctly with aseptic technique, threads give the skin a lifted, smooth appearance.
A thread lift is a cosmetic procedure in which cogged or smooth threads are inserted just below the dermis, in order to rejuvenate and sculpt the skin to a desired facial shape, thus reversing signs of aging. Thread lifts offer a cheaper, less invasive alternative to a surgical facelift. However, the results are temporary, possibly lasting 2 years but still offering a significant result.
The threads are placed superficially under the skin with a needle or cannula, and pulled up to lift the skin. A secondary wound-healing process occurs after the procedure, stimulating new collagen to grow, which improves elasticity and texture of skin, as well as adding volume over time. Cogged threads grip the underlying tissues to lift skin up, while smooth threads act like struts and stimulate new collagen and rejuvenate skin. They often are used instead of filler in certain areas and have great results without the risk of swelling or bruising.
Threads can be made of Polydioxanone (PDO) threads, little thicker than a strand of PLLA stands for Poly-L-Lactic Acid, a substance which has been used for many years as a medical material for membrane (tissue regeneration), suture and surgical sealant and as injectable facial rejuvenation treatment called Sculptra which works to stimulate collagen for a younger look.
