What is a Non-Surgical Thread Face Lift?
A non-Surgical Thread Face Lift incorporates a variety of absorbable sutures designed to lift loose and sagging skin of the upper, mid and lower face and neck. In addition, it includes the introduction of sutures to stimulate collagen production in an effort to soften the appearance of sunken temples, crow’s feet, under eye contour defects, smile lines, smoker’s lines, and marionette lines. The results are natural in appearance.
What is the difference between PDO and PLLA Absorbable Sutures?
PDO (polydioxanone) and PLLA (Poly-Lactic-Acid) are both biodegradable and absorbable materials. PDO Sutures dissolve in 6-8 months with results lasting upwards of 12 months. PLLA Sutures dissolve in 18 months with results lasting upwards of 2 years. Both threads stimulate collagen production. Dr. Escobedo recommends re-evaluation and possible booster sessions every six to nine months if necessary.
