Intraline Spiral Threads are polydioxanone (PDO) threads that feature a filament that is wrapped around the needle or cannula. These threads can be inserted into the skin as part of a thread lift procedure, which is a non-invasive way of instantly tightening the skin. These threads are manufactured by Intraline, a British company that specializes in aesthetics and produces products like dermal fillers along with its line of threads. Intraline Spiral Threads are CE-marked and are available in foil packs of 20 (10 packs of two threads).
Intraline Spiral Threads are similar to Intraline Mono Threads in terms of size, usage, and form factor, but Intraline Spiral Threads are able to promote a higher degree of skin rejuvenation and collagen growth than Intraline Mono Threads because the former features a filament wrapped around a needle or cannula.
Intraline Spiral Threads are used to tighten and lift sagging skin. These threads are useful for treating several issues related to skin sagging that include but are not limited to wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and smile lines. Once inserted into the skin, the threads immediately tighten and lift the skin and begin to stimulate the production of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin.
When inserted into the subcutaneous layer of the skin, these threads tighten the skin by acting as an integrated support network. They also stimulate the production of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin; the collagen further tightens the skin, the hyaluronic acid hydrates it, and the elastin provides improved elasticity to make skin look more youthful. Between the structural support provided by the threads themselves and the increased production of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin, Intraline Spiral Threads thoroughly rejuvenate the skin and help stall the aging process.
Intraline Spiral Threads should only be inserted by a medical professional that has been trained on how to insert Intraline’s PDO threads.
Intraline Spiral Threads provide immediate tightening and lifting effects once they are inserted. However, the results that Intraline Spiral Threads provide upon insertion continue to improve for six to eight months after the insertion procedure because the threads stimulate the production of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. Overall, the results that come about with the use of Intraline Spiral Threads can last for up to two years. However, the exact duration of these results is dependent on a patient’s lifestyle, age, and a number of other factors.
Intraline Spiral Threads are safe. They have been extensively tested for safety, and the PDO that these threads are made of is CE-certified. The PDO used in Intraline Spiral Threads does not produce skin reactions, allergic reactions, or side effects. In fact, PDO is such a safe material that it is often used during heart surgery. Because of this, patients can feel comfortable about their safety if they decide to undergo treatment with Intraline Spiral Threads.
Intraline Spiral Threads are made of polydioxanone, which is a polymer. Polydioxanone is made through the polymerization of p-dioxanone.
