Over time, the tissues of the face and body are loosened. The installation of resorbable threads allows to realize in the doctor's office a quick facelift, without scars or social eviction.
There are three different types of absorbable threads :
– Polylactic acid threads. This material is biocompatible with the human body, absorbable, and has been used for a long time in cardiovascular and ophthalmic medicine. The threads contain cones ( 8, 12 or 16 cones ) which exercise a tensile effect.
– Polydioxanone barbed threads. This material has long been used in cardiovascular surgery, where the barbs exert a tensile effect.
– Polydioxanone mesothreads. Rather than catching on the skin, the tensile effect is obtained via collagen stimulation.
These threads have received CE certification and FDA accreditation ( USA ).
