The latest trend for thread-lifting is the usage of Polydiaxone (PDO) and Polylactic acid (PLA) threads that are absorbed after several months.
During this time the threads stimulate and induce collagen production over the course of about 8 months, with the effect lasting typically 2 years.
There are few different threads on the market:
Mono-threads are smooth threads without barbs. Multiple threads are placed into the face, neck and forehead in a mesh-like fashion for skin tightening effect.
Skin tightening is due to collagen formation along the threads.10-20 mono-threads are usually inserted in neck, forehead and under eyes.
In order to sustain a lift, the threads are attached to anchoring points-in the scalp or face.
Screw-threads have a great volumising effect of sunken areas
3. TORNADO THREADS
Tornado threads are used where a greater volume is required as in nasolabial lines .
Cog threads are mono-threads with barbs to hook to underneath of the skin.
The cog-threads do not need anchoring points. These threads are used for general lifting of the sagging tissues.
THE THREADS are placed into the deep dermal layer under local anaesthetic.
The number of threads used varies from one to three per area for barbed threads, and from ten to fifty per area for mono-threads.
The immediate result is a firmer tissue, then two to four weeks later the dermal component starts being produced. The maximum tightening effect is achieved several months later, once new collagen has been produced around the threads, which in meantime have been absorbed.
