Mono Threads

What are Mono Threads?

Mono threads offer a non-surgical alternative for improving skin texture. Unlike traditional skincare products that may not always deliver desired results, mono threads provide a more effective solution. These threads are made from absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) and are less invasive compared to other cosmetic treatments like Botox fillers or surgical facelifts.

How Do Mono Threads Work?

A certified medical provider inserts the mono threads below the subdermal layer of your skin in a mesh-like or cross-hatching pattern. This method stimulates collagen production, improving skin firmness and texture without the need for surgery.

The Role of Collagen and Elastin

As you age, your body’s ability to produce collagen and elastin diminishes. Elastin allows your skin to stretch, while collagen strengthens it. When PDO threads are inserted, they stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production. This new collagen smooths out wrinkles, rejuvenates the skin, and enhances volume in areas like the nasolabial folds.

Treatment Areas

Mono-thread treatments can be applied to various areas, including:

  • Upper and lower cheeks
  • Nose-to-mouth lines
  • Neck and jawlines
  • Arms, buttocks, and abdomen
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Glabellar lines

These treatments help improve skin firmness and elasticity, restoring a youthful appearance.

Ideal Candidates for Mono Threads

Candidates typically range between 25 and 55 years old and are looking to improve skin texture and fine lines. However, those with autoimmune diseases, bleeding disorders, uncontrolled diabetes, keloid scarring, expectant mothers, or current illnesses and infections should avoid this procedure.

Post-Procedure Care and Expectations

After a mono-thread treatment, it’s important to avoid excessive facial movement. Some swelling and bruising may occur but are generally less severe than with surgical facelifts. To promote healing and minimize infection risk, avoid strenuous activities, hot tubs, and saunas for about three weeks.

Enhancing Collagen Production Post-Procedure

Protecting your skin from sun exposure by applying sunscreen and maintaining daily moisturization can enhance collagen production. Results typically become visible after twelve weeks as your body gradually produces more collagen.
