The Miracu thread lift uses absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) threads to lift the skin around the face. At MELORA Health & Enhancement, Dr. Goldfarb implants these threads underneath the surface of your skin to lift and tighten the dermal tissue. The sutures serve two purposes: to lift the skin tissue and stimulate new collagen.
Collagen is an essential protein in your connective tissues. This protein keeps your skin firm and tight in your youth. However, as you age, your collagen levels begin to deplete, leaving your skin thinner, drier, and more likely to wrinkle. By encouraging new collagen growth, Miracu PDO threads continue to enhance your skin tone long after they dissolve.
Miracu offers several different types of PDO threads, depending on the area you want to treat and the severity of your skin laxity:
Cog threads contain small barbs that firmly latch into the skin. These tiny barbs also create micro-wounds in the skin to stimulate collagen production. Cog threads are often used to lift skin around the midface and jawline.
Mono threads are smooth and commonly used to provide a subtle lift, particularly around the scalp.
Screw threads are intertwined to lift and tighten the skin while adding enhanced volume and support to the treatment area.
Your doctor uses a local anesthetic to numb your skin before treatment, so you should experience no pain during the procedure. It is normal to feel a mild tugging sensation as your doctor inserts the threads. The entire procedure takes just 30-60 minutes, depending on how many areas you treat, so you should be able to resume your normal activities after treatment.
Your skin will likely look noticeably firmer and tighter after you leave MELORA Health & Enhancement. However, peak results typically appear within six months of treatment, when your collagen levels begin to replenish.
