Thread Face Lift
PDO (Polydioxanone) is a clinically proven bio-compatible material that is widely used in medical suturing for over 30 years.
PDO thread lift is a technique used to lift and tighten sagging skin tissues, redefine facial contours and stimulate collagen production. Tiny bio-compatible, fully absorbable threads are inserted into the skin to create support for the tissue and lift in the jowls, mid face and brows. The lifting effect can last up to 2 to 3 years and reaches a peak at 6 months when collagen has formed around the threads.
PDO threads can strengthen the contour of the face, improve its shape, lift sagging skin in the cheeks, jowls, neck and produce a brow lift. It can also rejuvenate the skin and improve its quality by stimulating the collagen production, enhancing the skin tone and tightening pores. Both mono (mono filament) and cog (barbed) threads can be used depending on patient’s need.
Silhouette Soft is the latest advance in facial aesthetics aimed at reversing the ageing process. The threads are made of Polylactic Acid (PLA) that has been used in medical suturing for many years.
Silhouette Soft comes in the form of bi-directional, bio-compatible and completely bio-degradable thread cones. Once the sutures are inserted in the skin, not only does it give the targeted area an immediate and discreet lift, but the PLA will be acting on deeper skin layers and stimulating collagen production, giving long lasting, natural results. It is a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure with minimal down time and maximum results.
The cost of procedure will depend on how many sutures will need to be made each side of the face. The procedure is virtually painless as local anesthetic will be injected into the treatment areas to completely numb the skin.
