With the aging, the skin loses its qualities such as luminosity and vitality due to the lack of collagen and elastin production. This produces flaccidity, the skin falls off little by little and creates an appearance of tiredness and fatigue. We all want to recover the smooth and shiny skin that characterizes young faces so we will present a technique to achieve these goals, the thread lift.
The lifting without surgery, the thread lift.
On the internet there is a lot of information about magic lifting, lifting with threads, magic threads and suitable threads among others. The problem is that the type of thread is not specified, which confuses and creates false expectations around this treatment, being possible even criticism about all types threads without taking into account that there are several different. In addition, the technique used also influences the effectiveness that these will have.
What types of tension wires are there?
As we have explained there are several types of threads and techniques for the application of these. Both factors are equally important to achieve the desired results.
Depending on the skin of the patient and what you want to get some threads and / or techniques can be more appropriate than others.
Non-resorbable threads: They have been used for a long time as a surgical suture in heart interventions. Nowadays they are used looking for a permanent result, as for example in the buttock lift. These threads are made of polypropylene, which is a biocompatible material that is not reabsorbed.
Resorbable threads: They are used to activate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin and are normally placed creating a mesh, they are used to restore the skin smoothness and luminosity. They are made of polidoxanone, a biocompatible material which is completely reabsorbed by the body after a certain time.
Russian threads: This is a special suture of a biocompatible and resorbable material. The effects of the same endure after reabsorbing the threads. The technique used for these threads is to infiltrate them under the skin and knot them in the upper part of the ear holding the tension of the skin to create the lift without surgery.
