MEDITHREAD'S technique of naturally sculpting uses the tension lines of the skin, causing an effect similar to surgical facelifts or body lifts. MEDITHREAD PDO sutures have specialized strengths and shapes to allow for anchoring, filling, or reshaping of various areas of the face or body. The threads dissolve over a 28 day time-frame, leaving a bed of newly established collagen in the area of treatment..
THE PROCEDURE; All patients are numbed with 1% Lidocaine with epi for any anchor thread, to ensure comfort. This procedure does not require anesthesia, leads to minimal soreness and swelling during the recovery, and bruising is patient-dependent. Each suture is placed with a cannula, to ensure safe and proper placement. Most clients are able to report to work the very next day.
