Thread Lifting at Prèface Cosmetic
Dr Hollenbach has been performing thread lifting at Prèface Cosmetic in excess of ten years. He has gone through a journey using different types of absorbable threads, using Promoitalia threads and now onto using Aptos Threads (PCL threads) which are the most widely used across the whole world, due to their significant advantages over threads used in other clinics. The differences will be detailed later in this segment.
Dr Hollenbach is still involved in using Promoitalia Threads specifically for chins using iNeedle threading often in combination with procedures such as laser lipofilling.
He has also developed techniques learnt in the days of Promoitalia Threads using free-floating, absorbable cheek crosslinking threads, which are done in combination with lipofilling to achieve a cheek platform full of newly laid collagen which can then be further lifted using more traditional anchoring thread techniques after a period of 6-12 months. This may be more suitable in older clients in whom normally thread lifting is not possible.
