Objectives: the objective of this paper is to share my experience with new kind of threads. The new Mesh scaffolding threads are much newer in market and have much stronger pull.
Introduction: In last 2-3 years, I have been using mesh threads both ion combination with cone threads as part of dual plane thread lift, and as stand alone thread lift. It has been a good experience with these threads and due to the newer technology of threads, they are far stronger and longer lasting.
Materials / method: for last 2-3 years, I am using mesh scaffolding PDO, threads. It is made of an inner core of 18 gauge cogs PDO threads, covered with a thin layer of mesh scaffolding. The threads are passed just like another threads through a cannula. The thread is reinserted in a different direction to have a better grip and stronger pull. The mesh scaffolding has minimum of 1 mm holes for the ingrowth of tissue. in this the first one or two threads for jowls are placed in a vertical plane to have better pull and migration of jowl/neck skin.
Results: The results can be compared with another thread lifting material. However, the mesh scaffolding gives an added advantage of more type I collagen formation, due to the tissue generation through the mesh. This lead to more rejuvenation of the overlying skin and longer lasting results than non-mesh threads.
Conclusion: The results are as good as any other threads, except that the vertical pull technique will move the jowl / neck skin up. the diameter of the mesh scaffolding is much bigger than the non-mesh threads, so the longer lasting results and much better and stronger pull.
