KOREAN PDO THREADS

The natural aging process does not mean we have to give up beauty and a youthful appearance.

The aging process, which begins to appear around the age of 30, reverses the “triangle of beauty”. This appears inverted on the face during adolescence and in our 20s but inevitably reverses overtime. Along with sagging of the tissues, deep furrows and wrinkles begin appearing, indicating an inner change in the supporting structure of the skin.

Thread lifting is your key to a small step back in time. It is a minimally invasive technique with only a short recovery time that can shave off your age without you having to undergo major surgery and visible scars.

Thread Lifting:

This is a recent, innovative technique of face rejuvenation, which offers the benefit of a non-surgical intervention and therefore, it only requires a short period of recuperation. The material consists of biodegradable threads that have been used in surgery. During this procedure, threads are inserted into the deeper connective tissues. They attach themselves in the subcutaneous tissue and if positioned properly they create tension into the desired direction. This creates a mild stretch of the subcutaneous tissue and the skin, which firmed up after a few days by the natural increase in connective tissue. (fibrosing)

Local anaesthesia is used for the treatment and the threads are absorbed after a certain time depending on the material. Additional threads can be placed at any time.

Therefore, there is a method available, which allows lifting the skin and tightening the hypodermis significantly with minimal effort for some time nearly risk-free.

Compared to conventional face lifting, thread lifting offers patients benefits:
