Facial Thread Lift - Complexions


1What is a Thread Lift?
An innovative treatment that lifts tissue and promotes collagen production. Ideal for those not ready to undergo the recovery or expense of a surgical facelift. The greatest benefit is that patients can see a noticeable difference in their appearance with only a short, non-invasive procedure that does not require general anesthesia. You can achieve a more youthful look without scarring and without any downtime, as the entire procedure is done with local anesthetic. Your results can also continue to improve with time as the skin produces more collagen to heal itself.
2How does it Work?

The FDA cleared biocompatible polydioxanone (PDO) threads are inserted underneath the skin, where they encourage collagen synthesis. This creates gradual improvements in the results over time in a natural way. These threads act in a similar manner to a scaffold for the skin. They allow it to hold together against the effects of gravity. PDO thread facelift technique develops tauter and smoother skin while creating a subtle lift in precise facial regions.

PLLA is a substance that has been used for over 30 years in surgical suture material. PLLA was first approved for Aesthetic indications in 2009 with Sculptra Aesthetic. Now available in thread form the provider can directly address the structures of the face and body for an immediate lifting effect and regeneration of collagen and natural appearing volume.
