We all know one of the biggest concerns when it comes to surgery is scarring, so when we hear about a way to possibly minimize the appearance of scars, we’re all about sharing it! The threads used for suspension lifts are now being studied for their effects on wound closure.
It has long been known that reducing tension on wounds during healing creates a less noticeable scar, and using Botox in this capacity has been getting a lot of buzz. Attention is also being focused on the use of Contour Threads to close wounds instead of traditional sutures. Some doctors are theorizing that the barbs on the threads prevent the wound from splitting without tension and eliminate the need for knots, possibly producing a more aesthetically pleasing scar.
