Suture lifts are a non-surgical method to eliminate mild to moderate sagging in the face. Thread-like sutures with hooks are implanted in the face in order to lift the lax skin and achieve a fresher, smoother look. Various threads may be used; mainly absorbable or non-absorbable, depending on the individual’s needs. Most superior threads are made of Policaprolactone material which, being a Poly L-lactic acid derivative, stimulates the skin’s ability to produce collagen and elastin, for longer lasting results.
Silhouette Soft® and Aptos® sutures use a double action effect to restore smoother and more toned skin, but also a shapelier face. To meet this requirement, the suture material combines two effects: An immediate repositioning of the tissue and a gradual regeneration of collagen.
