  • Absorbable sutures, which dissolve under the skin after a while, leaving a frame from the skin cells that prolongs the effect obtained;
  • Non-absorbable sutures, which are used to eliminate the serious age-related manifestations, as they are permanently located under the skin;
  • Combined sutures, which have absorbable and non-absorbable elements, thus preserving the long-term effect of the sutures use.
