What are smooth threads?

Smooth threads are slender, dissolvable strands typically composed of materials like PDO or PLLA that are used in cosmetic procedures. These threads, inserted through small incisions, aim to lift and tighten the skin nonsurgically. The procedures associated with smooth threads are referred to as thread lifts, which address mild to moderate facial sagging, providing subtle rejuvenation. Results are temporary and depend on factors such as thread type and individual response.

How do smooth threads work?

  • Smooth threads are inserted beneath the skin through minor incisions to provide support and an immediate lift for mild to moderate skin sagging.
  • Monofilament threads, usually made of polydioxanone (PDO), induce collagen production, a crucial protein for skin structure and firmness.
  • These threads promote ongoing collagen production, enhancing skin elasticity and tautness.
  • PDO and PLLA threads are designed to naturally break down in the body, stimulating collagen production even after their biodegradation.
  • The biodegradation process reinforces the skin’s structural support even after the smooth threads have dissolved.
  • Smooth threads, particularly those composed of polylactic-L-acid (PLLA), can lead to sustained improvements in skin texture and firmness due to increased collagen that persists beyond the presence of the threads.

What are the different types of smooth thread procedures?

A

Polydioxanone (PDO) Threads

Using Monofilament (Mesh/Smooth) Threads:
resembles flexible strands, promptly lifts sagging tissues, acting as a supportive scaffold. Over time, they stimulate collagen production, enhancing skin elasticity

A

Polylactic-L-Acid (PLLA) Threads

Using Monofilament (Mesh/Smooth) Threads:
smooth in texture, induces collagen production, providing an immediate lift and fostering ongoing synthesis for sustained results

Deciding which smooth thread procedure is best suited for you requires a consultation with a healthcare professional.
