What are the tensioning threads?

They are reabsorbable threads composed of polylactic acid and polydioxanova, two materials that are totally safe and compatible with the body. They are placed in the dermis and we obtain a double mechanism of action:

An early effect of suspension or tightening generated by the mechanical effect of the thread.
A later effect that is due to the new production of collagen, elastin and tissue regeneration; improving the quality and elasticity of the skin.

When are they indicated?

They are usually recommended in patients with flaccidity or loss of skin elasticity and a moderate degree of facial or cervical sagging. The objective is to redefine the facial oval, recovering the firmness and smoothness of the skin. In addition, the threads can be placed to elevate the eyebrow tail, cheekbones and jawbone arch; with a reaffirming and tensor effect.

When do the tensioning threads begin to take effect?

The result is evident in a progressive way, normally from the 2nd or 3rd week; but due to its late effect it improves until 3-4 months. Its effect can be maintained for up to 1 year.

Care after the application of tensioning threads:

Apply local cold for the first few hours

Sleeping with your head raised the first few nights

Avoiding sports or exaggerated facial movements

Avoid using makeup for the first 24 hours
