As we age we lose collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid all which contribute to skin laxity, loss of volume and crepey skin. Threads have been used for many years to lift and tighten skin.
At AMIS MedSpa, we use high quality threads made of different materials like PDO, PLLA and HA. They are used interchangeably and depending on each patients’ needs and aesthetic goals. PDO or polydiaxone are mostly used for lifting fat pads, lift sagging skin and volume by creating collagen. PLLA threads are made of poly-L-lactic acid which, just like the dermal filler Sculptra, promotes accelerated collagen production. These are used in areas where there are very fine lines, thin skin and/or crepey skin. Lastly, we have HA threads which are based on Hyaluronic acid, theri purpose is to volumize and plump the area.
