The Suture Secret Part 2

 Duration, results and complications of the treatment.

Modern cosmetic medicine is constantly introducing new and sophisticated non-invasive treatments to address the impact of aging on our bodies. The new secret behind tight and firm skin is the use of absorbable sutures.

In women, the problem areas that are typically treated are the arms, abdomen, inner thighs, buttocks and knees. The new, safe and non-invasive method for tightening the body with impressive results is all down to the secret of using these specially designed sutures.

SilhouetteTM Soft sutures are a trustworthy brand of sutures used for such treatments. They are manufactured from a copolymer of polylactic and glycolic acid that are widely used in medicine. To boot, they’re also known for their high biodegradability and biocompatibility.

Duration and results

The session is performed at a clinic without anesthesia and the duration time depends on the extent of the problem and the treatment area (which can vary from 30 to 60 minutes). The method is painless, bloodless, without incisions, scars or the need for hospitalization. You may resume to your daily activities immediately, with the only recommendation being that of avoiding strenuous exercise for the first couple of days. The appearance of the skin improves on a daily basis and for up to three months after the treatment, and the results last for about a year and a half.

Contraindications – Complications

Among the contraindications are: the possibility of being pregnant, coagulopathy or taking anticoagulants. The treatment may leave you with a couple of small bruises or mild swelling, but those can be treated with arnica cream. Furthermore, you should be back to normal in just a couple of days.

Additional Treatments

The PDO threads treatment can be combined with laser lipolysis and firming known as the i-Lipo treatment, the Velashape method to correct cellulite or injectable mesotherapy for lipolysis, so as to yield better results. Fifteen days after the application of the sutures you may undergo any other tightening or firming treatment of you choice.
