PDO/PLLA Threads


What are threads?

PDO polydioxanone.:

                    Sutures are completely safe and are routinely used in surgery, even in cardiothoracic surgery (such as

                    open-heart surgery). It’s one of the safest materials that can be implanted in the body.

PLLA: Poly-L Lactic Acid:

                   “Selective Inflammatory Response” Skin is very good at repairing itself, and by inserting                                                       Threads, we created a self-healing response that’s supported by your own collagen!

Types of threads

  • Mesh uses smooth threads and serves as a tightening mesh to build collagen. Results appear naturally, without any drastic change!
  • Liftis utilized to produce a more dramatic and immediate result. The threads have  “cogs”, which provide a grip underneath the skin. This thread produces instant skin repositioning. Your skin will then build new collagen which secures the lift.
