What is the MEDiTHREAD Lift?

The MEDiTHREAD Lift procedure uses absorbable surgical Polydioxanone (PDO) sutures placed into the skin under the dermis. It is used to both lift and to stimulate collagen production. PDO thread is completely dissolvable and disappears in 4-6 months leaving increased collagen behind. The MediThread lift procedure can result in an increased firmness and elasticity of the skin. While lifting may be visible immediately in lifted areas, skin improvement in some areas may take up to 3 weeks or longer for the results to be fully noticeable. The aesthetic results can last from 9 to 12 months.
