Introducing absorbable PDO Threads

Absorbable thread lifts are a safe, convenient option for anti-aging and tightening. While not a substitute for traditional cosmetic surgery, threads offer a more conservative approach with less downtime. Designed to be less invasive, the threads can improve skin laxity in multiple areas of the body, such as cheeks, jawline, abdomen and even knees with less risk and downtime than the conventional surgical approach. The threads are specially studied to resist enzymatic attack and stimulate the skin in an optimal and homogeneous way. Threads come in a variety of smooth and barbed forms, in different lengths, that work at various levels of the tissue. 

Thread Lift treatment:

  • Minimally invasive
  • Mild discomfort with minimal pain level
  • No downtime to 5-7 days down time depending on the type and number, and location of the threads (patient advised to refrain from heavy physical activity in that duration, but may return to work/daily activity as planned).
  • Can be performed on ALL skin types

In which areas of the body can threading be performed?

Threading can be performed along the cheeks, jawline, eyes, forehead, upper lip, above the knees, abdomen, arms or anywhere one might experience skin laxity and sagging.

What are some potential side effects of threading?

Side effects can be temporary bruising, swelling, redness, pain, tenderness, itching and induration. These occurrences are temporary and rarely last greater than 2 weeks.

Patients review a detailed consent form in which possible side effects are reviewed.
