Threads, also known as magic threads, offer the possibility of rejuvenating the face, as a stretching effect so that the face regains its tension and freshness.
The tensioning threads are made of a biocompatible material, that is, they do not produce allergies (they are known to give stitches). This semi-invasive method lifts the flaccid skin of the face, in areas such as eyebrows, cheeks, jaw, and neck. Its ease of use and the short time the person remains inactive, have made it popular.
For people, silhouette tension threads, which are absorbable, can be an alternative to invasive procedures necessary to correct this type of problem. It is requested by those who want a stretch, but cannot afford or do not have the recovery time that requires a standard “facelift”. It can regularly be done in about an hour.
Ideal candidates for tensioning yarns include citizens with least signs of aging who require only a small elevation. In general, these are women between 30 and 45 years old. The procedure is indicated for them because they have begun to have a flaccid facial appearance or light bags under the eyes or in the neck, but not in a deep way.
The treatment does not apply to obese patients or those whose skin is too rough, because they will not show any improvement. Similarly, it is not recommended for those who have multiple allergic reactions to the skin or infections, cancer or systemic diseases such as diabetes.
The anesthesia is chosen according to the patient, the surgeon, and the procedure.
They are similar to suture threads, which are reabsorbed.
The spinal needle is inserted below the pre-tragal area (very close to the earlobe), in a curved direction to a point near the cheek. Then, the surgeon goes up again to stop below the smile line. As this needle advances, the doctor progresses sinuously, moving the tip from side to side. In addition, the depth of the needle is maintained at all times at the same sub-dermal level, sliding just above the layer of fat.
After the intervention, the patient will feel how the threads manage to tense their muscles in the area where they have been placed. Patients can resume their normal life without complications, but with the necessary care. It is normal to feel a little swollen or bruised, which a sign that you are recovering successfully is.
Of course, if you do not choose a professional who is properly qualified, your face could be left with some asymmetries. Therefore, my recommendation is to consult before giving yes to this type of procedure. As they say, cheap is expensive.
PDO Thread Face Lifting has been regarded by Plastic Surgeons as a significant advancement in Facial Rejuvenation and the Nonsurgical Facelift because of the extraordinary results achieved from the technology involved. The technique itself is ideal for the aesthetic practitioner (Physician, Nurse Practitioner, PA, check applicable state laws) because of the relative simplicity in learning the technique, the excellent safety profile, and the significant revenue associated with the technique itself.
What are PDO Threads?
PDO Stands for polydioxanone which is a suture similar to surgical stitches. These threads, when placed beneath the skin will stimulate collagen synthesis which will plump the skin like a dermal filler. In some ways, PDO threads are similar to certain dermal fillers in their desired effect. In addition, threads work by “grabbing” on to, and attaching to the skin, lifting loose skin in the direction the surgeon has precisely inserted the thread. “Thread lifting” has two main functions; to increase collagen synthesis, similar to a dermal filler, and to “lift” sagging skin by direct physical and mechanical means. The “mesh” of threads shapes the face by lifting and supporting sagging structures. These threads are absorbable in 6-8 months but will hold for an additional 8-12 months.
There are many different kinds of threads with different shapes, some with barbs, some that are smooth. During all levels of training, attendees will gain a thorough understanding of each of the different products and how to use them.
