DEFINISSE ANCORAGE THREADS / 10
A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO AESTHETIC MEDICINE
Relife has pioneered, through a process of thoughtful innovation, a new avenue in aesthetic medicine:
- In response to new aesthetic needs
- This solution is an effective tool at the service of doctors
- Which helps achieve aesthetic goals
Definisse Threads Absorbable Support Threads are a line of synthetic monofilament (L-polylactic acid and caprolactone, p (LA-CL)) lugged yarns indicated when tissue support is required.
The notches of Definisse absorbable support threads are designed to achieve an immediate lifting effect, as well as a delayed lifting effect by fibrosis all along the thread.
The notches arranged along the support threads act as anchor points to enhance and support the surrounding tissue.
After the support wires are applied, the notches open like mini umbrellas to form a support structure that enhances sagging skin.
Thanks to these notched threads, it is possible to form a “J-stitch”.
Definisse Threads absorbable support threads are made from a mixture of L-polylactic acid and caprolactone.
A tensile test, conducted on Definisse Threads absorbable support threads versus PLLA support threads and another type of commercially available PLLA-co-PCL support thread, found that Definisse Threads absorbable support threads are, approximately, twice stronger than other support wires tested.
Definisse Threads absorbable support threads show higher elasticity and lower plasticity than p (LA) support threads, as indicated by the percent maximum strain and percent recovery after application – load removal measurements .
The Definisse Threads support threads were more affected by wear (maximum force of -23% for 23cm threads and -14% for 12cm threads). The maximum force decreases by 10% for the PLLA yarns and by 9% for the other PLLA-co-PCL yarns tested.
MECHANICAL AND HISTOLOGICAL LIFTING
The combined technical characteristics of Definisse Threads absorbable support threads allow them to produce a lifting effect in two stages:
- An immediate lifting effect, obtained by the mechanical action of the support threads
- A delayed lifting effect, obtained by fibrosis along the support threads
