What are lifting Threads and how do they work?

Polydioxanone Absorbable Suture

Sutures (stitches) used for bringing tissue together

These sutures and syringe delivery systems are being used to smooth, lift and tighten by “suturing” the tissues internally.

What are the advantages of PDO suture fillers in aesthetic medicine?

Regeneration of the dermis

Stimulation of new collagen formation

Natural appearance

The generation of mature collagen and elastin fibers, results in skin that is thicker and more elastic

The formation of fibers in the subdermis creates a tensor effect of the skin.

What are the effects of the treatment?

Wrinkles start to smooth, face color improves, pores become smaller

Skin becomes elastic and improved in appearance

Tissue changes monthly due to new collagen formation around threads

Each person has his/her own speed of collagen synthesis.

How do these effects occur?

Texture optimization

Increased metabolism of the skin

Activation of the lymphatic circulation

Increased blood circulation in the surrounding tissues.

How long does it last?

Qualitative characteristics of the skin are improved for the next 4-6 months & lifting is noticeable

After the breakdown of the threads (4-6 months) there is the maximum production of collagen, achieving the desired effect for 12-24 months.

You are a candidate if you have:

  • Jowls, smile or marionette lines
  • Forehead lines but Botox type products cause eyelid drooping.
