The thread lifting procedure does not involve surgery. When performed correctly, a thread lift is minimally invasive, very safe and is an effective in-office procedure with little to no downtime.
ARE THERE DIFFERENT TYPES OF THREADS?
There are two main categories of PDO threads: non-barbed and barbed:
The “non-barbed” threads come in two main forms: smooth (mono-filament) and braided (twist, screw) and are used primarily for collagen and elastin production. They are primarily used to address fine lines and wrinkles.
Barbed (or cog) threads are thicker mono threads with barbs on the threads. These barbs hook and hold the tissue underneath the skin. When these barbed threads are inserted, the barbs open up like an umbrella to form an anchor or support structure that lifts and repositions the sagging tissue.
PDO threads come in a variety of lengths shapes and thicknesses. Knowing how to use them correctly and effectively comes with experience, skill and knowledge. Although procedures using PDO threads can seem simple, they require advanced skills to use them effectively and safely.
