The History of the PDO Threads and the Non-Dissolvable Threads for Face Lifting in Baltimore with Dr. Dean Kane

Do you want to have the effects of a facelift, but not ready for surgery?  EuroThreads might be the right non-surgical solution for you.


Dr. Dean and Lauri Kane Explain EuroThreads


Contour Thread Lift

The first set of threads approved by FDA was in 2004 and these were produced by Contour Threads. These were permanent sutures so they remained in the skin permanently and did not dissolve. Dr. Dean Kane’s had great success and very good  results using these threads to achieve a non-surgical facelift. However, the company lost favor when they allowed non-surgical physicians to place these threads without proper training. Due to complaints lounged at the company, Contour went out of business.

InstaLift Thread Lift

InstaLift Threads were the next set of threads that came to market and were approved June 2017 by the FDA. These were created to be dissolvable. They are coated with PLLA which is Sculptra that stimulates collagen and elastin to create firming and tightening. They are created with cones which when placed under the skin with a very thin needle it catches and pulls the skin laxity up leaving a firmer tighter affect. These sutures have been effective, however, they are limited in that they only come in 3 sizes and are strictly used for lifting facial skin laxity.

Injectable PDO and PLLA Threads by EuroThreads Baltimore with Dr. Dean Kane

The newest and most effective threads are called PDO EuroThreads also FDA approved in 2017.  What makes these threads so effective is the brilliant developer of these threads, Laurie Wall created a system of threads that are also dissolvable, but come in different forms, thickness and lengths. They also come in an injectable format so that no anesthesia is required to insert them. They are as easy to inject just like a filler injection.  Also instead of one type of suture fits all problems, Laurie Wall created an array of unique threads that perform multi-functions. On the chart below are examples of the diversity of how the PDO and PLLA Threads can be used:

Exciting Technology of PDO and PLLA EuroThreads

It is very exciting technology in which these PDO Threads and PLLA Threads create a scaffolding within the skin as you see by the cross hatching of the sutures. As the PDO and PLLA Threads dissolve they are stimulating your collage and elastin within your skin to give a greater structure and support to thin and lax tissues. These sutures are made to be smooth, twisted and barbed so that when they are used in combination you not only get a firming and tightening of the skin but a lifting as well. The PDO and PLLA Threads are used in both the face and body as described below.
