PLLA threads for the neck
As we age the skin loses its elasticity and ‘bounce’. This is due to the depletion of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid within the skin. These are the building blocks of healthy and youthful skin and when reduced can lead to a dryness and dehydration as well as sagging areas of the lower face and neck.
At Dr MediSpa we understand that ageing can affect not only our looks but our sense of wellbeing. This is why we have an armoury of effective, clinically proven treatments to counteract the effects of ageing on the skin and restore confidence in our patients.
For areas such as the neck that may need a lift as the ageing process takes hold, we use PLLA threads which are inserted in to the skin to physically lift the skin for a more toned and tight appearance. PLLA stands for poly-L-lactic acid and this biodegradable material is bio-compatible within the body. This makes it a safe option for medical use. PLLA is not only used in threads, but in medical sutures, infusion equipment and implants.
