PDO Facial Thread Lift Treatments

There are several types of resorbable or non-absorbable tensor threads. The goal is to allow rejuvenation without surgery in patients who are not yet candidates for a real surgical facelift. These are patients between 30 and 45 years old or patients who have already had a facelift and need improvement without surgical revision.

We should not hope for a real facelift as one might imagine, but a real tightening effect on the sagging areas of the face, neck but also the body.


PDO Thread Lift:

These are absorbable polylactic acid threads (sutures) which are of variable size (3 to 6 cm) having “notches” which cling to the skin and allow to have an immediate effect.

The definitive action comes from the induction of the production of collagen by the PDO which is done in a few weeks and will give the definitive effect.

The installation technique is very simple and does not require hospitalization.

INTERVENTION: less than 1 hour, under local anesthesia
FINAL RESULT: 2-4 weeks
AREAS: face, neck, arms, décolleté, all relaxed areas


Technique that immediately gives the “lift” effect by restoring the contours of the face and reducing skin ptosis.

The simple, quick and effective application of tension threads gives a scar-free rejuvenation result and slows down the aging process. The threads re-tension the sagging or sagging areas and thus form a long-term mesh of fatty tissue.

The rehabilitation period is short, after a few days you can resume your professional and daily life.

INTERVENTION: less than 1 hour, under local anesthesia
REPETITION / DURABILITY: Total absorption in 12 months
FINAL RESULT: immediate
AREAS: the face


SILHOUETTE SOFT®: The lift effect is discreet and immediate because it is the result of the compression and elevation of the tissues when the suture is adjusted.

These are threads that really have a tightening effect because they have small cones that attach to the skin and allow immediate tensioning.

The installation technique is more complex than for the other threads making this almost surgical gesture.

Indeed, after inserting it with a micro-needle, the doctor will apply light pressure to the treated area. By this action, it will reshape the surface of the skin and make it visibly smoother.

The regenerating effect is gradual and natural.

FINAL RESULT: immediate
AREAS: the face

Composition :

The regenerating effect is progressive and natural: Poly-l-lactic acid (PLA), the main component of SILHOUETTE SOFT® is a polymer known in the medical field for many years (sutures, orthopedic pins, screws, nails for bone fractures… are made from PLA). It is because this polymer is particularly biocompatible with humans, but also fully biodegradable, that such applications have been developed. Once the suture is in place, the polylactic acid will act on the deep layers of the skin and help restore the contour of the face in a progressive and perfectly natural way.
