This treatment is used to tighten loose and/or sagging skin, especially effective in shaping the neck and jawline. Which are generally areas more challenging to treat effectively with Botox or fillers. Polydioxanone (PDO) is used for biomedical applications. It is fully absorbed by hydrolysis within 4 to 6 months & doesn't create any scar tissue. The skin gently begins to repair itself around the suture and stimulates fibrin, elastin and collagen production.
The barbed threads are used to tighten and shape the skin around the lower part of your face. They physically lift the skin in these areas and initial results are visible immediately. The results are that of a facelift without the complications of undergoing surgery.
On average a person receives 4 - 8 threads per face.
These threads can be used virtually anywhere on the face or body. They are thinner than hair and are inserted below the skin to elicit a mild response from the body to restore fibrin, elastin, and collagen resulting in a smoother, plumper appearance. They are used most often where wrinkles and laxity are present, such as, forehead lines, crow's feet, vertical lip lines, marionette lines, and neck.
The number of these needed for treatment varies greatly depending on area of desired affect.
The twist PDO threads are loaded on a small needle in a twist coil formation which are inserted in areas of the face and body that need more of a filling effect. They stimulate new collagen formation and increase volume. They are used at improving frown lines, tear troughs, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and lips. The number of these needed for treatment varies greatly depending on area of desired affect.
Thread pricing - per treatment location $800 - $1250 (Smooth $25 each)
