Dr. Jason Emer’s experience as one of the most innovative cosmetic surgeons in Beverly Hills has fueled his passion for building an ingredient-conscious, effective and versatile portfolio of skincare products, regimens and procedures.
Miracu® Forte Fix PDO thread lifts are a great cosmetic treatment option for patients seeking to revitalize the appearance of sagging tissue and mild skin laxity. Board-certified cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Jason Emer is a Miracu® PDO thread partner who is exceptionally skilled and experienced with the complete Miracu® product line and considered a top provider of Forte Fix, in Beverly Hills.
Forte Fix threads are a new type of PDO thread made by Miracu to offer superior lifting and rejuvenating effects. Made with polydioxanone (PDO), the same biocompatible polymer used to make absorbable medical sutures, Forte Fix threads are strong and durable while still being as thin as a strand of hair.
Both men and women can benefit from Forte Fix PDO thread lifts. It is necessary that candidates are in good health and are willing to follow all pre- and post-procedures instructions Dr. Emer gives them.
Based on the information Dr. Emer gathers while performing a physical examination of the treatment area, reviewing your medical history, and asking you about the cosmetic improvements you would like to achieve, he can determine if Forte Fix threads are an ideal option for you.
Depending on his findings, Dr. Emer may recommend a thread lift with another type of Miracu® PDO thread, such as Elasty Meshfill or Forte Basic. He may also use multiple PDO thread types.
In cases of severe signs of aging, such as when patients have loose, hanging skin, a more aggressive intervention may be more suitable. In these instances, we will recommend natural-looking enhancement with surgical procedures like facelifts, brow lifts, and eyelid lifts.
A local anesthetic will be used to prevent discomfort as the Forte Fix PDO threads are placed under your skin. Once he is assured of your comfort and has marked the treatment site, as needed, to map out the optimal injection locations, Dr. Emer will use an ultrafine needle to insert the first Forte Fix thread.
When the thread is properly placed and anchored, the needle is removed. Then, Dr. Emer will repeat the process at the next insertion site until all necessary Forte Fix threads are in place.
Initial improvements in tissue elevation are often visible right away. Ongoing contouring refinements can be anticipated in the two to three weeks following your Forte Fix procedure.
Firmer, more resilient, and healthier-looking skin will become evident as the body increases its production of collagen. However, it will take several weeks to see the full impact of the collagen-boosting effects of Forte Fix.
Over time, PDO threads dissolve and are absorbed by the body, so retreatment will be necessary to maintain your more youthful look. Dr. Emer can provide expert guidance regarding the appropriate retreatment schedule for your needs.
Patients who choose Dr. Emer for a Forte Fix thread lift benefit both from his advanced thread placement technique, as well as his unmatched ability to create personalized, combination treatment solutions to exceed his patients’ expectations. To achieve the most comprehensive and dramatic rejuvenation possible, Dr. Emer frequently combines Forte Fix threads with complementary treatments like:
Miracu® Elasty Line, Elasty Meshfill, and/or Forte Basic PDO threads
Dr. Emer customizes every Forte Fix PDO thread lift to address the unique anatomy and cosmetic concerns of the patient, so the cost varies. The exact price associated with your treatment will be calculated during your initial consultation and reviewed with you at that time.
