PLLA INSTANT THREAD LIFT
Non-Invasive Face Lifting Treatment
The procedure is suitable for anyone from 25 to 75 years old who wants to attain a more supple and sculptured visage. Visible aesthetic benefits from instant face lift treatment last for a period of up to 2 years.
PLLA threads are a relatively new option for thread lifting – a procedure which works to physically lift the facial structure and tissues into a higher and more youthful position.
PLLA stands for poly-L-lactic acid, a substance which has been used for many years in Sculptra, an injectable facial rejuvenation treatment which works to stimulate collagen for a younger look.
Now PLLA is available in a thread format, which is used in a very different way.
Compared to injectable treatments, thread lifting is a procedure which directly addresses the structure of the face through an immediate lifting effect, accompanied by a longer term regeneration of collagen and natural volume.
Threads are carefully positioned beneath the skin, and then manipulated to tighten and lift the tissues. This is a gentle, non-invasive procedure which provides some of the benefits of a facelift – tighter, firmer skin with better definition to the facial features – but with much more subtle and natural-looking results.
The lifting effect is the result of the practitioner manipulating the skin tissue after inserting the sutures. After inserting the suture, the doctor applies slight pressure on the treated areas, reshaping and re-contouring the face making it look visibly toned and lifted. Results are immediate.
