Younger patients, with beginning of laxity and minimal sagging will
highly benefit of a thread lift. Minimally invasive procedure, with short downtime,
a suspension absorbable thread will be inserted under the skin. The effect is both a mechanical lift and a physiological increase of the quality and thickness of the skin. Biocompatible PDO (polydioxanone: Koreean, Aptos) or PLA (poly lactic acid: Silhouette soft) will be chosen depending on the quality of the skin and the degree of suspension needed. While it is not a substitute for a surgical face lift, it will provide 12 to 24 month of correction and skin quality improvement.
The latest trends are putting the PDO threads to use in volumizing the lips and in treating the vertical lines.
