What Are Mono Threads?

Mono threads, also known as monofilament threads, are a type of absorbable suture used in aesthetic procedures to lift and tighten the skin. These threads are made from a biocompatible material such as polydioxanone (PDO), which has been widely used in medical sutures for many years. Here’s an overview of their use and benefits:

What Exactly Are Mono Threads?

Mono threads are single-strand threads that are smooth and do not have barbs or cones along their length. Unlike other types of threads used in aesthetic procedures, monofilament threads are primarily designed for skin tightening and collagen stimulation rather than providing mechanical lift.

How Are Mono Threads Used?

During the procedure, the threads are strategically inserted into the skin using a thin needle or cannula. The threads create a mesh-like network under the skin, promoting collagen production and tissue tightening. Over time, as the threads dissolve, the collagen fibers remain, contributing to a firmer and more lifted appearance.

Benefits of Mono Threads:

  1. Non-Surgical Skin Tightening:
    • They offer a non-surgical alternative for individuals looking to improve skin laxity without undergoing traditional facelift surgery.
  2. Stimulates Collagen Production:
    • The threads stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential proteins for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness.
  3. Natural-Looking Results:
    • Mono threads provide subtle and natural-looking results. The skin gradually improves over several weeks as collagen production increases.
  4. Minimal Downtime:
    • The procedure typically involves minimal downtime, and patients can usually resume their normal activities shortly after treatment.
  5. Versatility:
    • Mono threads can be used on various areas of the face and body, including the jawline, neck, and décolletage.
  6. Improves Fine Lines and Wrinkles:
    • In addition to tightening the skin, mono threads can help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  7. Gradual and Long-Lasting Results:
    • While results may not be as immediate as those from surgical procedures, this treatment provides gradual improvements with long-lasting effects.


  • Individual Responses Vary:
    • The effectiveness can vary from person to person, and individual responses depend on factors such as skin condition and age.
  • Consultation is Essential:
    • Before undergoing any aesthetic procedure involving mono threads, it’s crucial to have a thorough consultation with a qualified and experienced practitioner to determine if the treatment is suitable for your specific needs.
