PLLA
RaiseMeUp Mesh Lifting with Barb

RaiseMeUp’s Poly-L-lactide Acid (PLLA) provides long-lasting results (up to 24 months), with a gradual diminishing of the improvement over time. The long-lasting results come from the monofilament 3D mesh construction, which promotes collagen growth, resulting in powerful tissue fixation.

RaiseMeUp is formed from PLLA, a biodegradable material with good bioresorbability and biocompatibility. In addition to being used in threads, PLLA is used in other medical applications including sutures, infusion equipment, and implants.

Procedure / Application

The PLLA 3D Mesh procedure is performed through a set of small punctures above the hairline, without the need for incisions or the use of any special devices.

A Sector

PLLA mesh can be applied as shown in Sector A for: neck wrinkles and a saggy neck/neckline, for marionette lines, to promote plumper cheeks, and to reduce sagging of the face line.

B Sector

PLLA mesh can be applied as shown in Sector B for: wrinkles at the corners or around the eyes (crow’s feet and laugh lines), for the nasolabial fold, and for wrinkles around the lips (smile lines).

Barbed / Non-Barbed Sections

RaiseMeUp Mesh has two sections: a 100mm long barbed / mesh section and a 200mm long non-barbed / mesh-only section.

The 100mm barbed section includes a 100mm long, 0.3mm diameter PLLA thread with barbs. The 0.1mm diameter PLLA mesh is woven around the barbs. The barbed section is inserted into the dermis with the non-barbed section for fixing the PLLA mesh in place and tying it off.

3D Mesh Illustration

The combination of the barbed thread and 3D mesh pulls the tissue and fixes it place as the soft tissue grows between the 3D mesh and the barb.

Three-dimensional mesh supports the tissue, resulting in a wider, natural lifting effect, especially in comparison to single threads or planar mesh.

RaiseMeUp Procedure Kit

RaiseMeUp is provided in a set that consists of the disposable surgical instruments for the procedure (one trocar and one cannula) and four 3D mesh.
