It is a firming treatment for mild or moderate sagging of the face fundamentally, although other areas can be treated (neck, abdomen, arms). Its great advantage is that it is a minimally invasive treatment, with minimal discomfort and with a lifting effect. There are several types of threads, both in their shape and in their composition (the vast majority are resorbable).There are smooth ones (with which a mesh is built on the face) and they are what are called "monofilament" and their composition is usually PDO (Polydioxanone) The implantation is done with topical anesthesia (cream) To achieve a good result, the number of threads should be between 50 to 100 threads in total.
The spiculated or traction threads are implanted under local anesthesia and at an outpatient level, through microcannulas that carry the thread. This has some spicules (spicular threads) that go around the entire thread section (3D) or with small cones that are going to pull the tissues at the subdermal level and produce their "stretching or lifting". Its composition can be PDO (Polidoxanone), the most used are polylactic acid, polyglycolic acid, etc. These threads, apart from their tensor effect, induce the formation of type 1 and 3 collagen, which contributes to a better appearance of the skin. It has an immediate effect on the spiculated threads, and the results are similar to a "lifting" effect, lasting approximately 18 months.
All threads have the relevant health authorizations.
