Plastic surgery offers a variety of anti-aging procedures, thread technology is just one of them. The use of threads for a facelift is preferred by those who do not dare to complete plastic surgery. The success of the procedure depends on a combination of factors: the experience of the specialist, the age of the person, the depth of the problem, the characteristics of the body, the quality of the materials used.

Types of threads for a facelift are conditionally divided into groups: absorbable, non-absorbable, combined. The former are made from unstable materials, they disappear from the skin within six months or more. During this time, a kind of frame is formed around it, supporting the contour for another two years.

  • Material that is not subject to self-destruction remains in the thickness of the face much longer, perhaps for a lifetime. It is used for intensive lifting of the neck, décolleté and other areas.

Combination threads partially remain in the thickness of the skin. They are also not visible visually, but they are held by the so-called cone.

According to the structure and methods of fastening, there are smooth, notched, screw, braided, liquid (bionity) threads. Today, specialists use a wide range of threads from various materials, from global manufacturers and domestic ones.

For patients over 40, materials that do not dissolve on their own are recommended. In people over 50, age-related changes are even more pronounced; gold or Aptos threads are suitable for them. With the correct implementation of all stages and high-quality threads, after two weeks, swelling, redness and other traces disappear, and the face becomes noticeably younger and fresher.

Facelift with mesothreads

Mesothreads are processed fibers, they are produced from a substance of high elasticity, compatible with the human body. When they break down, they form carbon dioxide and water and are excreted without harm to health. Such qualities make mesothreads useful for improving skin elasticity. The procedure is available to patients of both sexes - if there are no medical contraindications.

  • With a facelift with mesothreads, a beautiful oval is supported by a framework of connective tissue. The innovative technique has another name - tradelifting.

They write that a technique based on the effect of reflexology was invented by oriental specialists and that, in addition to the visible result, it helps to find an invisible, but no less important state - spiritual harmony. Therefore, many consider it a real breakthrough in aesthetic medicine.

The quantity and quality of threads for a facelift is determined at the stage of examination and preparation. Be sure to take into account the individual characteristics of the skin and the specifics of the problem.

  • The linear version of mesothreads solves the problems of 35-year-olds, that is, it eliminates fine wrinkles.
  • Spiral biofilaments are more suitable for 40-year-olds to eliminate the fat layer on the chin, improve the condition of the eyebrows, nasolabial folds, and décolleté.
  • Powerful mesothreads with notches reliably tighten the middle part of the face.

Lifting with threads is carried out by a professional, holder of a certificate for the right to carry out such actions. He must control not only his movements, but the whole process. The mesothread does not cause severe discomfort to the patient, does not deform the surrounding tissues, and reliably takes root in the thickness of the dermis.

Resorption of the material occurs after one and a half to two years. All this time, the face looks rejuvenated, the oval is clear. If desired, the contour can be corrected again after two years.

Aptos threads for facelift

The type of Aptos threads for facelift has gone through an evolutionary path and has improved compared to the original version. At first, these were notched products made from non-absorbable polypropylene. Today, in addition to threads for a facelift of various purposes, the Aptos brand produces double-edged needles that help to correct any area of the face.

Modern threads are fixed not due to notches, as before, but on bone elements, which is a more progressive and lengthy technique. The collection of Aptos threads is as follows:

  • springs - to lift the corners of the mouth, eliminate wrinkles;
  • "hammock" - for correction in the chin area;
  • made of caprolac;
  • for the buttocks and chest.

The advantages of products are that you can choose effective ones for each zone. But there is also a reverse side of the coin, not so attractive. Threads should be introduced very accurately, namely in the subcutaneous fat layer. Too superficial implantation is fraught with deformation, and too deep implantation is ineffective.

The fact that the threads grow firmly is good for a lift. However, if they, for some reason, need to be eliminated, then the patient and doctors face a serious problem. It is also no secret that notches reduce the strength of the filament material, which can lead to its breakage.

Facelift with golden threads

When they talk about a facelift with gold threads, they do not mean pure gold, but in combination with polyglycol. It is wound on a synthetic conductor like the thinnest shell. Gold is taken of the highest standard, pulling it into a thread thinner than a hair. By analogy with the strengthening of buildings with metal fittings, the procedure is called reinforcement.

The main advantage of the noble metal is that facelift threads with this component are hypoallergenic and have been tested by centuries of experience. After all, gold was used to make threads long before modern materials appeared. For the purpose of rejuvenation, they are recommended for 30-40-year-old patients.

  • At the preparatory stage, the specialist examines the face, determines exactly where intervention is required, puts marks.

After anesthesia, a special needle pierces the skin in those places where implantation will then follow. The threads should form a mesh. For one manipulation they spend up to 3m. The application of a healing antiseptic cream completes the procedure.

The precious metal frame activates the production of collagen and connective tissue around each thread, which helps to strengthen the skin and smooth out wrinkles. Up to a month, unnatural skin tone, bruises and other imperfections should disappear, and the residual result is visible after two months.

The disadvantages of gold threads include the fact that with each jump in air temperature, the face noticeably changes color, and in the future it becomes impossible for a person with gold reinforcement to receive hardware cosmetic services.

Liquid threads for facelift

What does "liquid facelift" mean? How can a liquid substance pull something up and generally keep its shape?

In fact, liquid threads for a facelift are called biothreads made from a material almost identical to human tissues. Due to their subsequent resorption, reinforcing collagen scaffolds are formed in the skin thickness, which was required to be obtained.

  • This version of threads for facelift is an innovative cosmetology development. Unlike solid threads, the material is a special biogel consisting of zinc chloride and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid.

It is launched into the dermis, where, when the above components interact, an insoluble salt is formed, which is a catalyst for the formation of elastic fibers. As a result, there is a thickening of the epidermis and smoothing of wrinkles on its surface. The gel lasts longer than other threads, respectively, and the effect too: up to several years.

A facelift using this technique is performed with special needles on an outpatient basis, after preliminary consultations and examinations. It is practically painless and safe. But there is a caveat: the procedure must be performed in a course, repeating twice a month for several months in a row. A more accurate scheme is calculated by a specialist in each case.

Liquid threads for facelift with zinc

Active women care about their health and appearance and are ready to try new beauty technologies. Liquid threads for facelift with zinc are for women who are interested in modern solutions in the field of cosmetology. In favor of techniques using threads is the fact that age-related defects are eliminated without a scalpel.

The liquid material is a gel structurally composed of zinc chloride and an important ingredient with anti-aging properties - hyaluronic acid. Able to perform two tasks: correct and tighten.

  • Facelift threads contain less zinc and are called lifters. It is injected into the skin of the face according to a pre-planned scheme. For other parts of the body, a skin protector is used.

When injected, the gel fills microvoids. The skin reacts to it as to a foreign body and tries to isolate it from other tissues. Simply put, hyaluronic acid promotes regeneration, while zinc protects tissues from damage. Then the skin contracts, straightening the folds. Over time, both components are safely excreted from the body.

Threads with zinc correct shallow age wrinkles, after one course the effect lasts for several years. Repeated manipulation is permissible after a certain time. At the same time, the color is evened out, the skin is fresh and moisturized.

Threads with notches for a facelift

Today, dozens of models of threads for facelift have been developed. This allows for individual solutions for patients with different problems and requests. With the help of thread technology, wrinkles are smoothed, jowls are corrected, the oval is leveled, and the skin is tightened at all points of the front of the head.

Aesthetic surgeons use linear, woven, spiral, notched threads for facelift. The latter are the most popular, because they are universal and provide a high quality of the procedure. They are used for flaccid skin, drooping eyebrows, deepening of folds in all problem areas of the face, in the presence of crow's feet, wrinkles around the lips, age rings on the neck.

Limitations also exist, they are the same as for other thread technologies. You should clarify whether your problems are contraindications for threads during the first consultation at the clinic. In their absence and the correct actions of specialists, a positive effect is guaranteed.

During the first four months, it grows, in view of the strengthening of the frame, due to the growth of connective tissue at the first stage of the process. The effect lasts for 4 years, by which time the final dissolution of the threads occurs. After this period, the same manipulation can be repeated.

Absorbable threads for facelift

A component of absorbable threads for facelift is lactic acid. The substance supports cell regeneration and skin rejuvenation. The element is introduced into the surface layer, where it begins to decompose and, after a certain time, is completely eliminated from the body. The new tissues formed under the influence of the facelift threads stimulate the production of collagen, which is what was required to achieve in order to eliminate the signs of aging.

The thinnest of this category are 3d mesothreads. They are introduced through special cannulas with a blunt end, pushing the structural elements of the skin apart. Thanks to them, tissues are injured to a minimum - provided that the cosmetologist filigree owns the technique of carrying out such manipulations.

The Aptos series also includes highly effective biodegradable threads that keep the result up to 4 years.

Caprolac materials disintegrate after about a year. This is a harmless process, without negative consequences for the actual rejuvenation.

  • The category of resorbable materials is offered to women under the age of 40, when unwanted changes have not yet passed the “point of no return”.

The threads are introduced into the surface layers with the help of special guide needles, under local anesthesia. The effect is especially noticeable in cases where there are many facial wrinkles on the face. With clearly defined folds on the face of a mature woman, this procedure is ineffective.

Implantation of threads is really manual work, in the high sense of the word, and mistakes are very expensive for the client - both literally and figuratively. Do not be too lazy to find a highly qualified specialist!

Tornado threads for facelift

Twisted tornado threads for facelift are braided products with a diameter of 7mm. They are created by twisting linear material. Tornado can be injected in areas with dense skin (muscles, deep and middle layers), as well as for enhanced tightening. The double strands are highly supportive and stimulate natural collagen production.

  • Procedures using threads for a facelift are called threadlifting. It is carried out at various points of the body and several variants of the Tornado are used for procedures.

Special multifilaments, made from 20 simple monofilaments, are effective in combating nasolabial problems, inverted cheeks, sunken eyes. They give volume, and also go well with other popular procedures: Botox injections, contouring with hyaluronic acid. Multifilaments gradually dissolve and disappear from the thickness of the skin.

Products that look like double springs or cogs are especially useful for correcting the nasolabial and ocular areas. They "remember" the shape, so after squeezing or stretching they return to their previous position. Due to this property, fading skin, corners of the lips and all the most problematic places are reliably tightened.

Spiral threads for facelift

Spirals are called threads that can stretch and shrink due to a specific shape. Although cosmetology has recently used spiral threads for facelift, they have already gained wide popularity and positive reviews. And there are reasons for this. Thus, threads for a facelift of a spiral shape have the following advantages:

  • efficiency;
  • security;
  • without age restrictions;
  • lack of damage and scars;
  • used alone and in combination with other varieties;
  • compatibility with other cosmetic procedures;
  • the ability to use for many indications (eyebrows, T-zone, labio-chin folds).

Spiral threads eliminate sagging skin and decollete defects after 40 years. They are considered painless and reliable. Their length is 50 or 60 mm. Such quality as elasticity allows products to easily return to their original position after stretching.

The amount of consumable material is calculated by the beautician. Products are introduced with a thin flexible needle that does not tear the tissue, but only pushes them apart. Due to this, there is less pain and minimal postoperative traces. The actions of the surgeon first correspond to the principle "where the needle goes, there the thread goes." The needle returns back without spirals: they remain in the final location, under the skin. A frame is created that can provide correction and support for problem areas.

Threads Cog (kogi) for facelift

In a rich assortment of threads for a facelift, it is difficult for a person who is ignorant in this area to understand. Trends are set by oriental cosmetologists - developers of the most exotic products and innovative solutions. In particular, Korean brands confidently hold the palm.

  • Correction with cog threads (kogi) for a facelift is also their development. Practicality, safety, efficiency are important characteristics of this type of thread.

The innovation is that they are not smooth, but with notches directed so that the fixation is as reliable as possible. They are not rejected, because the body does not perceive them as a foreign body. They enter the thickness through punctures with special needles. In addition to the thinnest needle, the threads are equipped with cannula tubes.

Having settled inside the skin, the cogs soon gradually disintegrate. At the same time, useful substances are released that increase the amount of collagen and elastin. These processes have an excellent effect on the condition of the skin, and after the complete disintegration of the threads, a connecting frame remains that maintains its shape for a long time.

The final decay products of mesothreads are water and CO2, which are excreted naturally and do not harm the body. Therefore, as soon as the result ceases to satisfy the patient, he can repeat the facelift again.

Korean threads for facelift

Korean threads are widely used in clinics for facelift. The Omega, COG, VERSATILE, Beaute lift series offer several product models. They differ in material, shape, caliber, length. What kind of threads are needed for a facelift in a particular case, it is up to the specialist who advises and examines the client. His choice is based on the age, status of the patient, the severity of the problem, the depth of implementation, the method of fixation. The effect is built on the formation of an intradermal framework from materials that are biologically compatible with the body.

  • Korean products are useful for 30–45-year-old patients, when wilting is already noticeable, but still amenable to correction with thread technologies.

The threads are inserted with ultra-fine injection needles, under light anesthesia; several pieces are used in each correction zone. Thread support is designed for 1-2 years, then it requires repetition.

  • If there are wrinkles of various locations on the face, furrows and folds in problem areas, the chin and the edges of the eyebrows sag, and the eyes “radiate” not with brilliance, but with mimic wrinkles, then Korean threads will perfectly cope with them.

The effect is visible immediately and continues to grow up to six months. This is due to the formation of new collagen at the site of introduction of the threads. And by the time the amount of Korean threads comes to naught, a strong frame reliably supports soft tissues.

Darwin threads for facelift

The characteristic of threads for a facelift is the thickness, length and material from which they are made. Thinner products deliver less pain, injury and undesirable consequences in the form of swelling, bruising, bruising, and so on. A lot of materials are used, for example, Darwin threads for facelift are made of polycaprolactone. This is an absorbable variety of products from the Italian manufacturer Ergon, created using a special innovative technology. It is one of the three most popular mesothreads.

  • The structure of the Darwin threads is a triple plexus, they are transparent and smooth, built into a needle made of a special medical alloy - durable and flexible.

In professional slang, products are called 3D caprolactone. This polymer, being embedded in the thickness of the skin, exhibits the property of restructuring, triggers collagenization of the fibers. As a result, the contour becomes clearer, the face is fresher, the relief is evened out.

Professionals note the following qualities of threads:

  1. The ability to use for the correction of hypersensitive and areas with high mimic tension.
  2. Wide age range.
  3. Smooth dissolving process.
  4. Persistent effect.
  5. Suitable for complex rejuvenation.
  6. Minimum complications.
  7. Short recovery.

Facelift 3d with mesothreads

The 3d facelift procedure with mesothreads is a rejuvenating technology that combines the results of several previously known procedures:

  • Botox injections;
  • filling voids in the thickness of the skin;
  • laser;
  • oxygen saturation with cosmetic preparations.

Facelift threads in this category are bio-implants made from a material different from other varieties. The main advantage of their implementation is speed, as well as the absence of negative consequences on the skin.

In appearance, 3d mesothreads are prickly, with microscopic spikes. During the operation, a specialist with jewelry precision makes tiny incisions in a problem area and introduces threads here, which first cling to skin cells with “thorns”, and then the doctor smooths them out with special tools. For incisions, needles no thicker than a hair are used, leaving almost no marks.

Manipulation is very effective, but still not a panacea. The effect is observed with small mimic changes: in the eyes, lips, on the cheeks. It lasts, at best, up to a year, until the material resolves. For durability, you have to repeat the procedure annually. With deep folds and the presence of pigmentation, you should not expect noticeable rejuvenation.

4d threads for facelift

Maximum tissue tension is provided by 4d facelift threads - fourth generation products with hooks directed in all directions. Once in the thickness of the dermis, they tighten it with their presence, and at the same time stimulate the growth of strengthening fibers and cell regeneration. Like other facelift threads with similar properties, they dissolve, leaving a dense frame inside and a renewed skin surface.

  • The effect is long-lasting, but, unfortunately, not eternal: after two or three years, patients are forced to order a supporting procedure again.

Products of the 4th generation are indicated in cases where 3D threads can not cope with the problem - for the correction of the cervical area, chin, large overhanging jowls, deep folds in all areas of the face. They are more effective than others with significant flabbiness of the dermis. In general, there are many advantages in 4D threads:

  • speed of execution;
  • without anesthesia and severe trauma;
  • the effect is visible immediately, lasts a long time;
  • do not shine through;
  • brief rehabilitation at home.

Threads are made from polydioxanone, used in medicine for fixing surgical sutures. The substance is very durable, hyalergenic, non-toxic and gradually dissolves in the body. Provides reliable support for a significant mass of tissues - not only on the face, but also on the breasts, buttocks, thighs, and abdomen.

Collagen threads for facelift

Natural collagen forms a protein framework, the function of which is to provide skin tone. It is known that under a microscope it looks like numerous intertwining threads, and in surgery it is used as a suture material. Collagen is produced in the human body, and when there is a shortage, it is supplied from the outside - as part of cosmetic products, as well as through collagen injections.

  • With age, collagen in the body becomes less, and the application of surface products will not help the cause. And then it’s time to ask about the threads for a facelift. What it is? What is it made of and why?

Collagen threads for facelift are designed to strengthen the skin frame. Threads of this category are implanted into the skin of 30-60-year-olds, in the absence of any contraindications, with thin needles, under local anesthesia. Popular brands are Zyrderm, Zyplast, CosmoDerm, CosmoPlast.

Products have a double action: they not only strengthen themselves, but also stimulate the formation of a strengthening tissue around each thread. They are used to smooth out deep nasolabial folds, scars or post-acne, increase the volume of the cheekbones, cheeks, lips, and correct the oval.

Collagen material is not absorbed, but can be damaged and destroyed. Then a re-implementation is required. And in general, one manipulation does not solve the problem.

Spring threads for facelift

Various models of threads for facelift are used in certain areas, for example, smooth ones - on the forehead, cheekbones, chin. This is due to the fact that in different areas the skin has an unequal density and is subjected to unequal loads.

  • Thread-springs for facelift have high elasticity, so they are used in the most mobile and dense areas. Installed at the subdermal level for lifting the nasolabial folds, chin, eyebrows.

The material for the springs is a modern substance that has the ability to turn into carbon dioxide and water after six months. The production process involves heat treatment to achieve a "memory effect" and winding on a needle to obtain the shape of a spring. The needles are made from special steel.

  • After being introduced into the thickness of the product, they take their previous shape, pulling the skin and muscles to the required level.

I use springs at the age of 30–45 years to correct ptosis of the eyelids, corners of the lips, jowls, double chin. At a later age, the effect is less pronounced. The result is rejuvenation for 4–5 years, smoothing wrinkles, smoothing the oval, activating the production of natural collagen.

Threads are suitable for manipulations on other parts of the body. They are well combined with all hardware and injection procedures.

Spring thread threads for facelift

A new word in aesthetic surgery is considered Spring thread threads for facelift. They were developed in a French laboratory for the production of cosmeceutical products. The fundamental difference from previous products is the two-layer structure and the abundance of non-aggressive notches along the entire length. The material is polyester fiber with a silicone sheath.

French threads for a facelift give a quick and lasting effect in such areas:

  • forehead, eyebrows;
  • lower jaw;
  • cheekbones;
  • neck;
  • breast;
  • forearm;
  • buttocks;
  • stomach;
  • hips.

The advantages of Spring thread are that they have high elasticity, non-traumatic, adaptive ability to facial expressions and muscle movements, fast survival. The threads are mechanically strong, also due to the frequency of the teeth and their directionality in both directions.

The minimum duration of the result is from 3 to 4 years after the procedure, and with proper care they promise even more. Another plus is economy: only two or three products are required to correct individual areas. Whereas up to 15 threads are used for reinforcement with obsolete materials.

The threads are suitable for people over 40 who are concerned about age-related changes, who have lost or gained weight dramatically, and do not plan weight fluctuations in the near future.

Omega threads for facelift

High-quality materials help to get a quick and lasting lifting effect. Many thread specialists prefer omega threads for a facelift. These are unique polydioxanone mesothreads equipped with multidirectional notches and a non-traumatic needle.

The needle with a sharp cut minimizes pain, and also allows you to use this model of threads for facelift for the correction of delicate areas - perioral, periorbital, décolleté.

Advantages of the Omega model:

  • Maximum effect with minimum trauma.
  • Side effects, subject to conditions, pass on their own.
  • The reinforcement effect is stored for 2 to 5 years, after which the procedure can be repeated.
  • Various modifications are used in conjunction with each other for enhanced fixation of individual zones.

Products are produced by Korean companies. Four types of thread products are offered. Which ones are necessary, the doctor decides - after examining the condition of the skin, the severity of the problem, the age and individual characteristics of the patient.

An important point is the detection of contraindications. The first one is too young. Thread technologies are not recommended for persons under the age of 25, either on the face or on other parts of the body.

Monofilament for facelift

The classic version of cosmetic threads for a facelift is smooth (linear, mono). In the skin, such mesothreads create a reliable frame and activate the formation of collagen. In addition to smooth, absorbable polydioxanone mesothreads come with notches (cloves), spiral (in the form of springs), woven into pigtails.

  • Facelift monofilaments constitute, as it were, the first generation of filament material, and springs and pigtails constitute the second. Each modification performs its tasks for face correction.

So, linear products are the simplest implant. Small diameter and length from 2.5 to 9 cm allow you to install it in any part of the face. They are especially useful for rejuvenating thin areas of the skin. Hanging eyelids, crow's feet, downturned corners of the mouth - these are the places. The best effect is at the age of 30 to 40 years.

  • The operation lasts up to an hour, depending on the area and tasks. The patient can go home immediately, as no further medical supervision is required. This is very convenient for people who feel uncomfortable outside the home.

Over time, the substance from which the threads are made breaks down and is removed from the body without consequences. The lifting effect lasts for about two years. In combination with other models of mesothreads, as well as hardware technologies, the result is prolonged. The thread technique is available for repetition when the result ceases to satisfy the patient.

Medical threads for facelift

The history of surgical suture material stretches from time immemorial. Ancient healers used "improvised means" to close wounds and injuries - hair, flaps, fibers, tendons. Modern materials are an order of magnitude higher. Thus, the classification of medical threads for a facelift takes into account not only strength, but a number of parameters: structure, flexibility, manipulation properties, presence or absence of coating, biocompatibility, wick effect.

  • According to biodestructive properties, materials are divided into absorbable (catgut, synthetic with different decay times), non-absorbable (polyesters, polyolefins, fluoropolymers, steel) and conditionally absorbable (silk, polyamides, polyurethanes).

Suture material is used not only by surgeons, but also by beauty industry specialists. So, cosmetic threads for a facelift did not appear out of nowhere, but were borrowed from the field of surgery. When they are implanted, wrinkles are removed, the cheeks are tightened, a general rejuvenation of the face occurs (the cheeks are called sagging cheeks, which deform the contour and give the person a sad or tired look).

  • Only specialists can understand all the intricacies of thread products.

After all, they are produced all over the world, using new synthetic materials and expanding the range. For patients wishing to navigate the topic, it is enough to know that cosmetic surgery uses many types of medical threads: both non-absorbable and absorbable with different decay times.

Kara threads for facelift

The range of cara facelift threads includes mono, double, spirals, braids, double braids, mono with gold plating, with notches. The products are produced by many representatives of the cosmetic industry, especially popular ones are Omega, EVE COG, Beaute` lift V Line, VERSATILE Uni. Which threads for a facelift the specialist prefers is his prerogative and responsibility. The task of the patient is to choose a clinic and a doctor worthy of trust.

When deciding on a facelift, it is useful to know a few recommendations:

  • Absorbable threads are desirable to use up to 40 years. Later, non-absorbable ones will come up, which form a more reliable reinforcement and protect against subsequent sagging.
  • If non-absorbable models were used for the first time, then during repeated manipulation it is necessary to take threads from the same material in due time.
  • If there is a large fat layer, preliminary liposuction may be necessary.
  • If you need to tighten several anatomical zones, the session is divided into several separate manipulations.
  • The combination of filament with other methods, especially with severe age-related problems, can significantly improve the anti-aging result.

Dairy, polylactic threads for facelift

Dairy (polylactic) threads for facelift have increased efficiency, safety and duration. World popularity is associated precisely with this, as well as with the minimal risks and trauma inherent in technology. Unique facelift threads are inserted under the skin, made from a substance compatible with the human body - polylactic acid. The advantage is that the acid does not accumulate, but decomposes and is excreted without a trace.

Polydairy products have a double effect.

  • First, they get used to the thickness and tighten the soft tissues of the face; phase lasts about 9 months.
  • In the end, they act even after decay, because the cells located around them, under the influence of the material, activate the production of their own collagen.

The lift can last up to 5 years. The duration of the result depends on the presence of subcutaneous fat, age, severity of the problem, the number of threads, the quality of the procedure and subsequent care, additional care measures.

  • In particular, care must be taken even during sleep: sleep only on your back. During the day, do not strain the facial and chewing muscles.

If the threads were introduced into parts of the body, then physical activity should be stopped, and even better, “roll” in bed for the next few days.

Thread technology is universal, but primarily used to restore problem areas of the face. Removes wrinkles on the forehead, temples, cheekbones, neck, eliminates sagging, corrects the area of the eyebrows, upper eyelids, lips.

Improving skin tone on the inner thighs, upper limbs, abdomen, chest is also under the power of milk threads. The minimum age for manipulation with threads is 30 years.

Braid threads for facelift

In the skillful hands of a professional, facelift braids provide a double lift. The effect is explained simply: threads woven into a pigtail can withstand a greater load than a single linear thread. That is, they are able to tighten a large mass of skin, as well as stimulate the formation of collagen more strongly. Such threads are consumed less for the same area of the lift.

  • Pigtails are used in denser areas and along the oval of the face, where a particularly strong tightening effect is needed. Near the eyes, nose, lips, due to the doubled and more thickness, it is possible to better support the skin and eliminate its shortcomings.

Synthetic threads for a facelift, woven into a pigtail, are safe and guarantee a stable effect. They are made from polydioxanone, a material for surgical sutures used in surgery. Pigtails remove the second chin, tighten the lowered cheeks.

The material is subject to decay and is displayed in about 6-8 months. During this time, a seal is formed in the thickness that can support the skin for 1.5–2 years. At the same time, the synthesis of its own collagen is activated, due to which the skin becomes denser and able to keep its shape. The big advantage is that a toned face has a natural expression, without distortion or asymmetry.

Rose threads for facelift

Korean rose threads for facelift are part of the Beaute`lift V LINE series. These are thin absorbable spiked mesothreads made of polydioxanone with a fixed length of 14 cm.

  • On 4 cm there are spikes directed on one side, the next 5 cm of length are covered with spikes with the opposite direction, the remaining 5 cm are smooth.

The cannulas are made of the highest quality Japanese steel. Thanks to laser sharpening, the needles easily and painlessly glide through the tissues, leaving almost no marks or bruises.

The amount of filament material is determined by the doctor in the process of examination and preparation for manipulation. Rose facelift threads are used in the following cases:

  • with reduced tone, the presence of deep furrows in the corners of the mouth, nasolabial and nasolabial areas;
  • with sagging tissues on the upper and lower extremities;
  • in the presence of gravitational ptosis - omission of tissues of all areas of the face.

Mesothreads tighten and fix tissues, and after 6–8 months they dissolve. During this period, a subcutaneous skeleton is formed, which helps the contour to recover and look natural. The end result is rejuvenation, smoothness, elasticity of the skin. Preparation and rehabilitation measures are standard for all thread procedures.
