Skin smoothing and tightening treatment
Smoothing and definition of the face
A revolutionary solution for sagging skin and loss of facial definition, with immediate results. Mini Threads is a non-surgical treatment that inserts mini polydioxanone (PDO) threads into the subcutaneous cellular tissue to create a mesh that tightens the skin.
These absorbable, bio-degradable threads form a vectoral network that supports the tissue, lifts the face and clearly defines the jawline. During the procedure, the skin creates a collagen fibre layer around the threads, resulting in a continuous, long-lasting tighting and smoothing effect.

An outpatient treatment only requiring topical local anaesthetic, virtually painless, relatively simple and quick (about 15-30 minutes). You can immediately resume your everyday activities.
The polydioxanone Mini Threads are inserted into the skin using small needles, resulting in a tighting effect that stops facial tissue from sagging and stimulates the production of collagen fibre. The results are immediate, but the best results will be seen after 2-3 months. The threads are re-absorbed into the skin within 6-8 months, during which time their continual presence stimulates collagen and elastin production. Their effect therefore lasts a long time, even after the threads have disappeared.
The Mini Threads treatment helps to treat excessively slack skin, wrinkles, lines and nasogenial folds, sagging cheeks and loss of definition in the jawline and oval. It rejuvenates the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production (more vitality, elasticity and radiance), regenerating and improving the general appearance of the face, which looks more relaxed. There are no side effects.
