Non Surgical approach to tight the skin laxity.


Facial Lifting with No Surgery

  • Threads are resorbable surgical sutures compose of biodegradable polymers.
  • It is a minimally invasive treatment and produces instant results.

PDO (Polydioxanone) sutures are used in biomedical applications, they are fully absorbed by the body via hydrolysis within 4 to 6 months and does not create any scar tissue.

This Foreign body into de dermis stimulates collagen synthesis and skin structure created can hold up to 15 months.

The Thread will start a process of inflammatory reaction that will allow the natural healing of the dermis. producing collagen and elastin for tissue repair.

The tensile threads of PDO (polydioxanone) are used for skin rejuvenation and in the treatment of facial and body sagging by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin and at the same time tightening the sagging areas.

There are different types of PDO tension threads, among the most commonly used are spiculated threads (cog threads) that allow skin tension, monofilament threads responsible for stimulating collagen and elastin efficiently and torn threads (screw threads) that in addition to tightening allow to produce a filling effect in the area where they are placed
