Lifting Threads

Lifting threads are a revolution on the beauty market, allowing for a minimally invasive face lifting. PDO threads are used in facial firming and modeling treatments, allowing you to restore youthful appearance – without the need to perform an invasive facelift with a scalpel. Lifting threads allow to lift the cheeks, rejuvenate a flabby neck, model the “fuzzy” line of the jaw. Our clinic uses various types of PDO threads, both lifting and skin revitalizing threads, as well as the newest Aptos lifting threads. PDO threads are made of polydioxanone – a synthetic fiber that stimulates the synthesis of collagen and elastin fibers. Depending on the length of PDO threads and their structure, it is possible to obtain various effects – from skin rejuvenation, through advanced face lifting, to firming and modeling selected areas of the body. The threads are soluble and self-absorbing after a few months, while the lifting effect is noticeable for much longer. Due to the minimal invasiveness, the procedure does not require convalescence. The first effects can be seen immediately after the treatment, the final effect can be seen after a few weeks and lasts up to two years.

Skin revitalization and smoothing wrinkles with PDO threads

Short and straight PDO threads are distinguished by their small length and a structure devoid of any modifications. Thanks to this, such threads can be used to rejuvenate selected areas of the face – smoothing wrinkles and furrows, improving skin density and firming it. Our clinic successfully performs less invasive methods for this purpose, such as smoothing wrinkles with fillers or lasers. Therefore, we consider PDO threads with hooks, i.e. lifting threads, to be particularly recommendable.

Face lifting with threads

PDO threads equipped with hooks are perfect for advanced facial rejuvenation and improving its oval. Thanks to the presence of hooks, it is possible to physically tuck the skin and subcutaneous tissue. The hooks anchor into the deep layers of the skin and lift it up. The second aspect of the PDO thread is to stimulate the activity of fibroblasts. The threads introduced under the skin stimulate the adjacent tissues, initiating skin regeneration processes. This results in an increase in the synthesis of collagen and elastin, which significantly improves the quality of the skin, thickens it and firms it. Such synergy of action allows for spectacular effects. Ultimately – the treatment with PDO threads allows for comprehensive rejuvenation of the entire face. It is about reducing deep wrinkles and furrows, as well as flabby and wrinkled skin, and restoring the correct oval of the entire face. The effect of rejuvenating and lifting the face is also provided by screw threads, i.e. single threads twisted in a spiral on the needle. Inserting such a thread under the skin is a bit like screwing a screw, which allows for a spectacular effect of lifting the skin.

Aptos Threads – the most advanced skin lifting and revitalization

Aptos lifting threads are an advanced technology that allows to lift the face without a scalpel. Aptos soluble threads are made of polylactic acid, which is a fully biocompatible and biodegradable compound. Polylactic acid stimulates the synthesis of hyaluronic acid, responsible for revitalizing and moisturizing the skin. The thread also includes polycaprolactone. Aptos threads have a number of solutions that allow for even more effective and lasting lifting:

  • multi-directional tabs
  • bi-directional tabs
  • microvessels on a spiral plan
  • small threads arranged in a spring
  • a long thread that connects to two needles
  • threads with a loop
  • small threads dedicated to areas of the face with increased facial expressions (e.g. around the eyes).

Thanks to such advanced solutions, it is possible to obtain a significant force lifting the skin and restoring its proper position. In addition, the effect of a strong stimulation of the synthesis of collagen fibers is obtained, which ultimately allows to obtain a stable and strong scaffold for the skin and subcutaneous tissue.

When is it worth deciding on such a procedure?

Indications for the treatment with lifting threads are primarily the loss of the face oval associated with the passage of time and loss of skin firmness. Threads allow to reduce such aesthetic defects as:

  • drooping cheeks
  • double chin
  • nasolabial furrows
  • puppet furrows
  • cheek-zygomatic furrows
  • drooping eyebrows
  • sagging skin below the lower eyelids
  • sagging skin in the jaw area.

Thanks to the use of PDO threads, advanced V-lifting is possible, i.e. restoring the appearance of an inverted triangle, with a narrow chin and a wider front part. Lifting threads also allow for firming and rejuvenating the neck and cleavage area.

What does the procedure look like?

The PDO threads treatment is preceded by a consultation with a doctor who assesses the appearance of the face and decides which type of lifting threads will work best. After an individual consultation, the procedure can be performed. After the skin is anesthetized with the cream and the injection sites are marked on the skin, the doctor uses a thin needle to insert PDO threads. Injections are made using the natural lines of skin tension. The procedure lasts from 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the number of lifting threads introduced.

Does the procedure hurt?

The use of local anesthesia abolishes the pain sensation; on the other hand, after the treatment, cold compresses relieve pain.

Post-treatment proceedings

Immediately after inserting the lifting threads under the skin, a temporary reddening of the skin and swelling may appear. Proper skin care is necessary after the treatment with PDO threads. It is inadvisable to use cosmetics that may irritate the skin. For the first few days after the treatment, it is advisable to sleep on your back, avoid excessive facial expressions, face massage or any cosmetic procedures. It is advisable to avoid sun exposure.

Are lifting threads safe?

The insertion of PDO threads requires only small skin punctures, so the procedure is minimally invasive and very safe. The threads used in our clinic are certified products of the highest quality, and the treatment is performed by a qualified aesthetic medicine doctor. The threads are safe for the body, do not cause allergies, and their spontaneous degradation takes place within a few months. Lifting threads do not leave scars, and the treatment can be repeated if necessary. Thanks to the skillful introduction of the threads under the skin, they are not noticeable or perceptible under the surface of the skin and allow for a very natural, impeccable aesthetic effect.

  • inflammation or allergies on the skin of the face
  • autoimmune diseases
  • epilepsy
  • use of anticoagulants and blood clotting disorders
