WHAT IS THREAD LIFTING?
At SKINLIFE, thread Lifting is a minimally invasive face lifting procedure using Health Canada approved self anchoring polydioxanone (PDO) threads such as Quill knotless suture. PDO thread is dissolvable suture material that has been used in soft tissue surgery including pediatric cardiovascular tissue and ophthalmic surgery for many years. The PDO thread is gradually replaced by our body’s natural collagen fibers as it gets slowly dissolved away completely in about six to ten months after the procedure.
HOW THREAD LIFTING WORKS
Thread Lifting is a relatively simple, minimally invasive procedure. Thread Lifting at SKINLIFE does not require any cutting or suturing as the PDO thread is slid into a desired position through a specially designed, thin stainless metal tube with a blunt end. In essence, it is comparable to facial injections, but done instead with dissolvable threads. Unlike previous thread lifting, the threads used for Thread Lifting at SKINLIFE is self-anchoring on the entire length of the thread, evenly distributing its anti-gravity force naturally.
