‘Miracu Threads’ – The Non-Surgical Facelift
The ‘Miracu Threadlift’ treatment is a pain-free, non-surgical facelift that leaves no swelling and requires no down-time. This Revolutionary treatment has been used extensively for skin tightening and lifting in Europe and the East for many years, and is only recently available in the US.
During the procedure, multi-strand threads are injected deep beneath the surface of the skin using thin acupuncture-like needles. Once placed, these threads act as a scaffold, lifting loose and sagging skin. It also stimulates the production of collagen, while providing a framework for the collagen to attach to, thereby creating the same effect as a surgical facelift.
As the threads are dissolvable, they will last for 4 – 6 months, but because your collagen production is constantly being stimulated, the lifting and smoothing effect of the treatment lasts for 2 – 3 years. In addition, the Miracu Threading relaxes your facial muscles, which means you get a similar effect to anti-wrinkle injections.
Swelling and redness are very rare side effects. Bruising is possible albeit very rare. This is usually a zero downtime procedure. It can also be done at the same time as Botox and fillers, if needed.
The PDO (polydioxanone) substance the threads are made of is a material increasingly used in general surgery, vascular and cardiac surgery for various sutures. Thus, these threads are listed as a class IV medical device which is absolutely safe, fully absorbent and hypoallergenic. The sutures are also heavy metal free, non allergenic, doesn’t trigger immunogenicity mechanisms, has no significant side effects, and inflammatory reaction is very low.
The cost of the treatment is dependent on the number of threads inserted, which will in turn depend on the area being treated, and the severity of the lift needed. Patients can opt to treat one area at a time, making customized procedures more affordable.
