What is an Incisionless Mini Facelift?
This innovative facelift is performed using hypodermic needles preloaded with an absorbable suture.
PDO Surgical Sutures are absorbable
1. Preloaded Needle is inserted into the skin
2. PDO thread stays beneath the skin when removing the needle
How does it work?
1. Controlled Healing
It’s “controlled healing” happening underneath the skin!
2. Mesh or Lift:
There are two types of procedures with PDO Threads:
Best Procedure for Neck & Jawline
Although PDO Threads can be inserted almost anywhere, one area where they are especially effective is the neck and jawline. The lower third of the face is challenging to treat effectively with botulinum toxin or injectable fillers, which are most effective in the upper and middle third of the face, respectively.
Restoring the V-Shape
A beautiful and healthy face has a “V-shape.” With the aging of tissues and the action of gravity, this “V-shape” diminishes or inverts.
The idea behind the Nu-Mesh and the Nu-Lift technique is to either create a scaffolding in order to support the tissues and keep them in the “V-shape” or, where necessary, to delicately lift the tissues and reposition the skin to recreate the “V-shape” where it’s been lost.
