What are Intraline Mono Threads?
Intraline Mono Threads are polydioxanone (PDO) threads designed to provide bio-revitalization and facial rejuvenation. These threads are smooth monofilaments that promote collagen synthesis and produce a visible tightening and lifting effect in areas where they are placed.
Accessories or items included
- Package insert
- Threads (M2750 or M3038) packaged in foil packs of 20
What are the benefits of this product?
Intraline products are made from medical grade CE-certified PDO that is developed via a production process with strict quality control measures. Its well-designed needles and stoppers assure accurate insertion for optimal aesthetic results. These high-quality threads provide long-lasting results with a minimal probability of breakage.
How does this product work?
PDO threads like Intraline Mono Threads are used in a procedure known commonly as a thread lift. This procedure achieves the effects of a rhytidectomy in a minimally invasive approach. It entails the lifting of skin and encourages dermal remodeling to improve skin tone and texture. This technique involves the subcutaneous insertion of threads into the treatment area, which is then tightened. The threads mechanically lift and tighten sagging skin instantly. This correction is then further maintained and improved by the formation of new collagen that is deposited in the treated area.
What are the ingredients?
Intraline Mono Threads consist of single filament with no twist or barbs. These resorbable threads are made of polydioxanone, a material commonly used to make surgical and medical devices such as sutures.
The M2750 filaments have a gauge size of 27G, a length range of 50–70mm, and a USP of 5-0. The M3038 filaments have a gauge size of 30G, length range of 38–50mm, and a USP of 7-0.
How to inject/administer this product
Mono Threads are typically inserted subcutaneously to achieve a skin tightening and rejuvenating effect. A common technique for optimal collagen formation involves inserting 20 120 threads in a lattice-like configuration across the treatment area, for optimal collagen formation.
When should I use this product?
The procedure to insert these threads is a minimally-invasive session at the doctor’s office that usually takes no longer than 45 minutes to complete.
What areas can I treat with this product?
PDO monofilament threads are used mainly for the improvement of the condition of the skin through the promotion of dermal collagen synthesis and deposition. These threads are placed in strategic locations, such as the oral commissures or along the brows, to counteract the signs of aging in those areas.
How long do results last?
Results of a thread lift procedure are immediately apparent. The effects will continue to improve for six to eight months, with a total duration period of up to 18 months.
What is the expected recovery time for my patients?
Patients can expect to resume their daily activities right away, as there is no associated downtime for the minimally invasive procedure to insert these threads.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the most important tips for my patient's safety before I use this product on them?
Intraline threads are made of CE-marked PDO, and the insertion procedure itself is considered to be very safe and involve little risk of complications. Patients who are suitable candidate for treatment with Intraline Mono Threads are individuals in their late 30s to early 50s who have mild to moderate signs of skin laxity.
Not all patients are suited for thread lifting with Intraline Mono Threads: this product is contraindicated in patients that have auto-immune diseases, an existing infection, hepatitis B or C, an HIV infection, or have a history of keloid formation. Patients that are pregnant, breastfeeding, or on anti-coagulation therapy are also contraindicated from using Intraline Mono Threads.
What is unique to this product?
Threads like Intraline Mono Threads are used more frequently in bio-revitalizing procedures that aim to improve skin tone because the insertion procedure is performed without the need for surgery, invasive approaches, and subsequent downtime. Additionally, the results associated with the insertion of Intraline Mono Threads are evident immediately and only continue to improve post-insertion.
What are the most common side effects from using this product?
Common side effects from the insertion of Intraline Mono Threads are usually transient and resolve spontaneously within several days. Some patients may experience procedure-related reactions such as bruising, pain, swelling, and erythema. Rarely, thread migration or suture granuloma formation may occur; in these cases, the threads will need to be removed and replaced. Improper technique may result in post-operative skin folds or visible sutures.
Who can inject this product?
PDO threads like Intraline Mono Threads should only be inserted by an authorized medical professional who is trained in how to perform the procedure.
