Why are they special?

Characteristics & Benefits of Polycon:

✓ Short elasticity – permits semi-elastic movement of the sutured tissues. This is a very important quality because, unlike other threads, these do not cut the tissues while they move.
✓ Braided – offered in various thicknesses (Metric). Allows the selection of proper thickness for the respective face and body areas to be lifted.
Long-term Absorbable – the surgical threads are absorbed in the human body within two years, i.e. after the final fibrosis formation (that is maximum one year and a half).
✓ Anti-microbial – they possess an excellent anti-microbial effect with a broad action range.

The above described qualities of the threads are the reason they are used in the scarless Serdev Sutures® Lifts to suture mobile fascias to immobile periosteum, fascias, and tendon insertions, and provide excellent, durable results.
