About BioSun® Threads for A Non-Surgical FaceLift

BioSun® Threads are used in this unique facial rejuvenation treatment that elevates sagging facial skin without the need for surgery, scars, or general anesthesia. It is a simple, in-clinic treatment used to re-contour your face by elevating the deeper layers of the skin. The PDO Thread Lift treatment lifts and tightens sagging skin tissue, using threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO). PDO threads are made of strong filament fiber, consisting of a few twisted fiber threads, which naturally dissolves after 6-8 months.

The threads integrate into the deeper layers of the skin. Original thread lifts involved invasive procedures with undissolvable products and consequently became associated with undesirable side effects such as infections and thread breakage. However, the thread lift treatment has radically improved over the last decade. BioSun® Thread Lift treatments are non-invasive, temporary, and use high quality products. The PDO thread lift is amongst the most popular today. The BioSun threads are made in South Korea, and are one of the most commonly performed skin lifting procedures globally.

Learn How Thread Lifts Work

PDO threads are made of a material that is often used for surgical sutures. PDO threads are biocompatible and generally have stronger lifting capabilities compared to Silhouette Soft and alternative threads. PDO threads’ strong lifting capabilities are often used to lift heavier skin to provide a longer, sustainable lift. PDO threads are also known to generate healthier looking skin compared to other threads available on the market.

PDO thread lifts are minimally invasive procedures which have three effects on the skin:

  1. Instant Skin Lifting
  2. Cellular Renewal
  3. Skin Tightening
 

After numbing and infusion of anesthesia, the PDO threads are inserted via sharp or blunt tip needles (called cannulas) into different layers of the skin. Once inserted, the threads anchor the skin and lift it upwards. The excess threads are then removed.

Depending on the areas treated, the procedure takes on average around 15-30 minutes. There may be some discomfort during the procedure, but because of the advances in technology, patients are experiencing less and less pain. The advantage of a thread lift is that it offers a combination of quick recovery, affordability, durability, and great results. The procedure is suitable for most people above 25 years of age, when the effects of aging become apparent.

How Long Does a Thread Lift Last?

When you compare thread lifts to other injectable cosmetic treatments, thread lifts stand out for their long-lasting results. PDO threads are made of strong filament fiber, consisting of a few twisted fiber threads, which naturally dissolves after 6-8 months.

Do Thread Lifts Hurt?

It’s a minimally invasive treatment and considered relatively painless, however, there is the possibility of swelling, tenderness and bruising afterwards. Injectable anesthetic and numbing cream will be applied to make sure you’re comfortable during your treatment. The PDO threads are inserted under the skin by Dr. Villar using cannulas. Once inserted into the appropriate layer of skin, they act as anchors as the skin is lifted upwards. 

FAQ's About Thread Lifts

Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are a special medical grade thread that is thinner than hair, made of protein. Research has confirmed that PDO relaxes tendons and muscles, whilst a foreign body reaction improves the blood flow to the area stimulating neocollagenesis (the production of new collagen in the skin). 

The treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to complete, and the patient can quickly go back to their normal activities. During your FREE Consultation, we will identify the areas of your body that have skin laxity or creasing and areas that would benefit from a lifting treatment. 

It’s important to understand that while no lifting technique can produce permanent results a thread lift will generally last from one to three years. 

There are different benefits to each treatment. Thread lifts always lift, but they can’t restore volume in the same way that filler can. They can lift sagging skin and reduce lines and wrinkles, but they can’t soften and plump up the skin the same way filler can. If you are looking to restore lost volume, you may want to discuss Dermal Fillers with your Medical Consultant.

Each Thread Lift treatment will be different based on the areas you want to treat. Book with a medical consultant today to get a more accurate view of the cost!

If you have a special event or vacation coming up, please keep in mind that you may want to schedule your treatment at least 1 week in advance. It is recommended to discontinue the use of Aspirin, Motrin, Gingko Boba, Garlic, Flax Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, or any other essential fatty acids at least 3 days to 1 week before and after treatment to minimize bruising or swelling. Please try avoid alcohol for 7 days prior to the procedure. Please do not smoke 2 days prior to treatment and the 2 weeks following your treatment.

We offer Thread Lift treatments at our clinics in Toronto, Oakville, Mississauga, London, Kitchener, Ajax, Richmond Hill, Stoney Creek (Hamilton), Milton, Burlington, and St. Catharines.

Results should be apparent right after the threads are put into place, but you may notice more in the days and weeks right after they are inserted, as swelling and bruising starts to subside. 

Although thread lift is considered minimally invasive, some sutures and cuts are required. There is still a risk of complications such as bruising or thread breakage.

After numbing and infusion of anesthesia, the PDO threads are inserted via sharp or blunt tip needles (called cannulas) into different layers of the skin. Once inserted, the threads anchor the skin and lift it upwards. The excess threads are then removed.
