Until recently, the only solution to getting rid of sagging skin was a face-lift surgery. This means cutting the skin in certain areas and then lifting the skin by hand so that it appears naturally around the bony structure of the face. This operation requires general anesthesia and a long recovery time. With the recent developments in non-surgical techniques, there has become a completely new treatment method, which is facelift with threads.. Here is a full explanation of this technique:
How does a thread lift work?
A thread lift procedure focuses on the tissues that cause the facial contours to sag. The doctor inserts absorbable, single-layer medical sutures made of polydioxanone (PDO) into the hypodermis of the skin and into areas that need some stimulation. The carefully designed threading system lifts the facial tissue, keeps it fixed, and improves capillary circulation.
Threads not only lift the face, but also stimulate collagen synthesis wherever the threads are inserted and surrounding areas, by activating the body’s own natural healing mechanism. In other words, turning back the clock when it comes to decreasing collagen production as a result of ageing.
One of the beautiful features of a thread lift is its ability to microscopically target specific areas of the face, to redefine the contours of the face with an unprecedented degree of control and perfection. The operation leaves no trace, as the incisions (about the size of a pinhead) and the electrode are not visible.
You will notice an immediate tightening in the contours of your face, wrinkles and lines will become very smooth, folds will disappear, and with the activation of blood vessels and the improvement of oxidation, your complexion will become radiant.
The results increase with time, as collagen production accelerates, your skin becomes tighter and more plump, while the sebum-dissolving properties of the threads reduce grease in some areas such as the chin. Moreover, this thread tightening does not stop at the end of the session, but rather continues its true role inside the skin for a much longer period of time.
