COSMETIC INJECTIONS

MONO MATRIX

THREADS

 ABOUT 

Our Mono Matrix Thread Lift is a procedure in which we use sutures to lift and tighten sagging areas of the skin. Similar to the sutures used in surgery during a facelift, they are placed under the skin without having to create an incision in the skin as is done in invasive surgery. This non-surgical lift helps with contouring of the lower face, double chin and jawline area, cheeks, smile lines and brow lifting. 

 

The threads are placed carefully under the skin to create a subtle natural pull that makes the skin look lifted and more youthful. The threads are left in place, creating a gentle lift that continues to improve as they settle into the skin over a 4-6 week period.

Downtime 3-5 days as bruising may occur

Treatment Time 30 - 60 minutes

 RESULTS 

A thread lift will provide a lifted, more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. This procedure creates long lasting results through boosting collagen and elastin in the deeper layers of the skin.

 WHAT TO EXPECT 

  • Prior to your first treatment, our doctor will consult with you to assess your suitability for Mono Matrix Threads and discuss any concerns or questions you may have.

  • After numbing is applied, the threads are placed carefully under the skin to create a subtle natural pull that makes the skin appear lifted and more youthful. The threads are left in place, creating a gentle lift that continues to improve as they settle into the skin over the coming weeks. You may feel pressure and the threads may sting for a few moments.

  • As the product takes effect you may notice a a change in muscle movement and a sensation of stiffness may occur.

 WHO IS NOT SUITABLE 

Anyone who is:

 

  • Is pregnant

  • Has cold sores, acne, or any other skin infection

  • Currently has a bacterial or fungal infection

  • Has a history of keloid or hypertrophic scarring or wound healing

  • Has areas of skin that are numb or lack sensation

 HOW IT WORKS 

Unlike a surgical facelift in which loose or sagging areas of the skin are removed, the threads procedure simply pulls these areas back with sutures under the skin. Additionally, the placement of the threads promotes new formation of collagen and elastin, further lifting, tightening and plumping the skin.

 TREATMENT PREPARATION 

Avoid blood-thinning medication such as aspirin, ibuprofen and fish oil, one week prior to treatment.

Advise your clinician if you:

  • Have an auto-immune disorder

  • Are regularly taking anti-coagulation therapy (i.e.: Warfarin,) Heparin

  • Have a severe metabolic or systemic disorder

  • Have active sunburn, eczema or psoriasis

  • Are currently taking aminoglycoside antibiotics

  • Are under 18 years of age (seven-day cooling-off period is required)

 POST TREATMENT CARE 

  • You may experience some swelling, mild bruising, redness, or mild tenderness after the procedure. The discomfort usually resolves within hours to days and can be controlled with ice packs, head elevation, and over-the-counter pain medication.

  • Excessive movement or exercise in the area of the treatment is discouraged.

  • Additionally, we suggest avoiding swimming, saunas and facials for at least 2-4 weeks post treatment.

 FOLLOW UP AND NEXT STEPS 

To ensure that you are happy and that optimal results are achieved, it is recommended that you attend a review appointment and assessment at two weeks to check muscle activity and aesthetic outcome.
