Many women look at themselves in the mirror and can’t help but pull their faces upward, wishing that this little sagging disappeared.
This progressively appears with time and age. And they wonder where that perfect oval from their youth has gone?
As time goes by, the face loses its firmness and begins to sag with a loss of facial contour, particularly in the neck area.
The face contour, the neck and the cleavage have been set aside by aesthetic medicine for a long time. But today, doctors have a more holistic approach to facial treatments.
If you wish for a nice and neat neck and a perfect facial contour, you should know that there are solutions that won’t necessarily involve surgery. This technique is called: absorbable and permanent thread lifts.
Resorbable and non-resorbable threads
After a complete analysis of your face, your doctor will advise you accordingly. The younger we are, the more effective the bio-stimulating effects of absorbable threads become, making them more appealing.
Discuss this with your doctor, and they’ll come up with a tailored to your needs. The results are immediate and last 18 months with resorbable threads, or 5 to 10 years with non-resorbable threads. Once the treatment is performed, avoid saunas, sports or high heat for a few days.
Resorbable tensor threads
They will retighten the skin and give a lifting effect, but they will also stimulate collagen production.
I will insert the threads one by one under the skin of the cheek with a cannula, so there will be only one entry point. The objective is to get through in one way and then in the other to create a mesh-like structure that supports and tightens the skin.
This technique can be performed at the practice and takes about 45 minutes.
There are no incisions, and the threads hold in place with their barbs. Once they are placed, the doctor makes a slight compression of the tissues in order to reshape the skin and attain the desired effect. The collagen and elastin production will be stimulated around the threads.
When foreign bodies are inserted beneath the skin, it reacts with a local inflammatory reaction which, when it heals, creates the desired tension effect.
Non-resorbable tensor threads
Regarding permanent tensor threads, the procedure lasts longer and there is no inflammation process. However, the permanent threads counteract gravity, lift the tissues up and block the aging process. The results will last up to 5 to 10 years.
