Endotine® Brow Lift

Endotine is a bioabsorbable implant that elevates browlift procedures with its unique multipoint fixation technology. Small tines allow for optimal control and precision in tissue repositioning, resulting in more natural-looking results. With greater holding strength than other brow lift methods, Endotine ensures that results last for years after a single surgical session.1,2,3,4

Endotine: The Bioabsorbable Fixation Device

Endotine is an improvement over non-dissolving sutures, which remain implanted long after they are needed.7 It is composed of a polylactic acid and polyglycolic acid polymer which has a proven track record of performance and reliability. Endotine typically takes 30-60 days to completely attach to its new position on the skin. During this time, the Endotine implant gradually dissolves until it is completely absorbed by the body.3,8
