Instead of a scalpel, the procedure involves using thread cones made of polylactic acid (PLA) – a polymer which is human biocompatible and 100% biodegradable; the same thread in fact that has been used for years for years in reconstructive surgery. After injections of local anaesthetic to numb the areas, the thread is carefully and expertly drawn through the skin in the predetermined areas. Once in place, slight, even pressure is applied on the treated area to smooth and reshape the surface of the skin into the desired position.
