These threads have multiple rough edges and “catch” under the skin “like Velcro” without any sutures. They are put in place with a fine needle that leaves no scars. The tissues thus “hooked” and put back in tension make it possible to restore the oval of the face, and to reduce ptosis in the cheeks or neck, for example. They also allow the cheekbones or eyebrows to rise, which can improve the dynamics of the gaze.
There are nylon and polypropylene threads, non-absorbable, very well tolerated. More recently, absorbable threads have appeared on the market which disintegrate in about 6 to 10 months.
Moderate slackening of the contours of the face, jowls, folds of bitterness … Threads are also great for treating sad eyes or tired looks caused by sagging cheekbones or eyebrows.
They see each other immediately. A few folds of the skin may appear as a result of re-tensioning. They usually go away in 2 to 3 weeks. The results last, in theory, a few years. It depends on the type of sutures and their quality of manufacture, the number of sutures implanted and the experience of the doctor. Life has been much improved with the use of longer, multiple threads.
The implantation of threads provides a natural and consistent result because all sagging areas can be treated at the same time.
From one hour for simple poses to over two hours for complex poses. This is precise work that should not be rushed. Placing a son is not very difficult, but placing him well is another story.
