Mono-threads are designed to initiate the formation of new collagen which improves skin firmness and elasticity. This treatment for non-surgical lifts is cutting edge and one of the most-recently approved technologies by the FDA.
Mono-threads are smooth threads that are pre-threaded onto a small needle and are placed into the dermal layer of the skin. They are made from PDO (polydiaxanone) which has been used in surgery for over thirty years.
Once inserted into the skin, the threads activate the production of collagen to gradually tighten and rejuvenate the skin. This provides the skin with a tighter feel and appearance and more of a youthful look. Typically, around 10-30 mono threads are used to treat an area.
Mono-threads are versatile and can be used in areas of the face where sagging and skin quality is compromised, and in the neck and decolletage area also. They dissolve over a 3-4 month period and results can last up to 12 months.
