Bloodless face lifting and immediate body tightening


Face and body PDO threads, a treatment known as “non-injectional lifting”, a semi-invasive and almost bloodless method that aims to the skin laxity treatment and collagen rehab.

Threads are vascular-surgical absorbable stitches that are applied under the skin, in specific depth and with specific dimension each time. Depending on the area that they will be applied, threads “pull” the loosed skin so that it can become more vital while at the same time threads lead to collagen & elastin production.

Threads are biodegradable so after their application, the human system absorbs them in 8-12 months period. Their power though, remains more since their application causes “damages” in the skin. Human system starts healing and this has as a result the production of collagen around these areas.

Threads treatment has started in the 90s, the last few years materials evolved and this led to a significant creation of new thread types for the market in order to achieve the best treatment plan with the longest duration possible.

Suitable treatment for patients that avoid scalpel
Lifting treatment with threads is suitable for patients that want to avoid surgical facelift process, or their body cannot accept total anesthesia. The treatment has less recovery time than surgical facelift, while is less painful with less money. Incisions are not required while the patient can return to his/her everyday life even the next day! The treatment is being combined with hyaluronic acid and hydroxyapatite fillers in order to achieve the best lifting possible.

Safe treatment with promptly results
Threads follow strictly the European specifications of safety (CE) while they are used many years in the medical field in surgical operations for tissue splicing. Their placement is being applied with the use of concave needles which are filled with the threads, an anesthetic cream must be applied locally before the operation. Every needle has a sterilized floss, serrated or not, with the insertion or the exit of it, the floss stays in the predetermined position.

The needles are 25 up to 100 millimeters (10 centimeters) and they are used depended on the area.

The threads are being inserted under the skin with a use of a specific technique.

Specialization of the technical threads insertion is a factor that plays a major role in the achievement of a successful and natural result. Dr. Dolly Fatsea, as a leader of ECAMS, authorized in thread treatment while trains doctors from all around the world in D-Lift technique.

Thread types
Depending on the interested area, the dermatologist or the plastic surgeon choose the correct thread type in order to have a successful result.

Tornado threads suitable for deeper wrinkles, less thread number from 60 to 80 mm, these threads are preferable for collagen activation.

Double screw threads suitable for younger patients. 30-100mm suitable for face and for collagen production within the sensitization of fibroblasts.

Cone threads & double cone

Threads with polydioxanone PDO Dual technology and caprolactone cone PCLA threads are being applied with specific protocol. Dual threads, either PDO double cone either caprolactone PCLA single cone, have been added recently into the market and they accomplish the best result with the longer duration.

Threads are being applied after detailed measurements of the face with peak accuracy.

Collagen production activation
Tightening and revitalization of the skin
