They are threads formed by polylactic acid (PLA), a natural, biocompatible and fully absorbable component used for many years for various pharmaceutical and medical applications such as sutures, orthopaedic pins, screws and nails for bone fractures, among others.
It is a technological innovation that allows a simple way to provide treatment to redefine the face, recover its volume and reduce wrinkles with a treatment of 30 minutes and performed in a doctor’s office.The results last up to 18 months.
It combines two actions in a single treatment:
•A discreet and immediate lifting effect: once the suture is inserted, the doctor reshapes the treated area exerting a dual action: compression and elevation of tissues.
•A progressive and natural beneficial effect: as polylactic acid is absorbed, it acts in the deep layers of the skin, promoting the increase in volume in areas with sagging and returning to face its everyday look progressively and completely natural.
