EuroThreads are FDA-approved, resorbable surgical sutures that are strategically placed underneath the skin to tighten, smooth and contour the face and neck. The treatment is minimally invasive and produces immediate results that continue to improve over time. Often called a thread or "lunchtime lift,”, it’s an excellent option for patients with mild-tomoderate skin laxity that are unable or unwilling to undergo a surgical facelift with general anesthesia, increased risks, and a longer recovery!
Eurothreads are dissolvable threads that are placed under the skin to achieve lifting of the cheeks, the jowls and the neckbands. These threads are comprised of polydioxanone (PDO), the same material that has been used for surgical procedures for 30 years. Eurothreads promote skin rejuvenation on two fronts: first, providing a physical mechanism for skin lifting, and second, stimulating the natural production of collagen to thicken and smooth the skin, reduce wrinkles, fine lines and other imperfections! (collagen stimulation continues for about 8 months after the procedure)
This varies among individuals, but the EuroThread Lift generally requires some downtime. Swelling, soreness, and minor bruising is common following the procedure.
EuroThreads have demonstrated benefits in all areas of the face and neck. The most dramatic improvement typically is achieved in the lower third of the face and neck by lifting sagging cheeks and jowls to create smoother, more youthful-looking contours. This area has traditionally been considered to be a difficult area to lift and volumize with just dermal filler injections, therefore, Eurothreads have emerged as a particularly exciting treatment option.
The duration of the EuroThread Lift varies, depending on the areas to be treated. The procedure can take as little as 15 minutes, while more complex procedures may take up to an hour or longer.
