Miracu Polydioxanone threads, better known as Miracu PDO threads, are super-fine, medical-grade sutures that have been approved by the FDA for use in a fairly new type of cosmetic surgery procedure called a ‘thread lift’.
A thread lift works as its name suggests – by using threads that are passed under the surface of the skin to lift and tighten the facial tissues. The process to place these threads is minimally-invasive, with just a special needle being used to insert them just below the skin. The Miracu needle has the same outer diameter as a conventional need, but a larger inner diameter that makes it more flexible. This is advantageous since this flexibility means that there is less trauma to the facial tissues, resulting in less pain and bruising than you might otherwise experience. There is no real downtime and patients can get back to their usual activities pretty much right away.
One of the many benefits of Miracu PDO threads is that they do not need to be removed at a later date. Instead, they gradually break down and are safely absorbed by the body after around six months following treatment. A Miracu thread lift produces lifting and firming effects that typically last around 12 months before further treatment is needed to maintain them.
Dr. Ziad Sara was the first to introduce threads to Lexington and he uses the latest technology in this field. He is also an inventor of new threading techniques recognized by leading companies in threading like Viola threads. Please call 859-554-0519 for free consultation.
