Look younger - without surgery
The aging processes of our skin can lead to sagging cheeks and slackening of the facial contours. Small wrinkles around the eyes, but also more pronounced wrinkles around the mouth, slowly become visible. A popular method of treating these signs of aging is thread lifting - without a scalpel or surgery. This method leads to a tightening and volume build-up of the skin without prolonged downtime, with a natural preservation of facial expressions.
Sequence of a thread lifting treatment:
Using a fine hollow needle, a thread is placed under the skin and the needle is immediately withdrawn. Depending on the treatment area and treatment goal, a different number of threads with different shapes are used - smooth, spiral or provided with fine hooks. They consist of polydioxanone or polylactic acid. These materials dissolve on their own in the skin after approx. 3-6 months. The bio-stimulation of the threads leads to a significant increase in collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin.
The threads, which were not yet broken down at the beginning, result in an immediately visible tightening which, after the threads have broken down, turns into a lasting rejuvenating effect. After 1-2 years, the volume-building and firming process gradually decreases, so the treatment can be repeated if necessary. Apart from the fine prick of the needle, the treatment is almost painless. If necessary, the area to be treated can also be prepared with a light anesthetic cream or anesthetic injection. For larger interventions with polylactic acid threads, a light anesthetic / twilight sleep is usually necessary.
Important before every use:
No pain relievers containing acetylsalicylic acid such as aspirin, ASA, thomapyrin or blood-thinning medication should be taken prior to treatment.
Possible side effects of thread lifting treatment:
The rate of side effects is relatively low. Side effects can be small bruises in the area of the puncture site or a slight reddening of the skin. A feeling of tension or the feeling of the thread under the skin in the first few days after the treatment is possible. After a few days you are usually fully socially acceptable again.
Possible risks of a thread lifting treatment:
An individual and detailed consultation should take place in advance with the practitioner. A thread lift is generally not recommended during pregnancy and breastfeeding, as well as in the case of acute inflammation. Excessive alcohol consumption, nicotine, sun and frequent visits to the tanning bed have a negative impact on the result. To prevent infection at the puncture sites or shifting of the material after the treatment, you should avoid intensive sporting activity, saunas, steam baths, strong UV radiation, extreme cold and facial massages for 5-7 days. A strong facial activity should also be avoided in order to prevent the thread from slipping. For this reason, you should sleep on your back for the days after the treatment. Use a fresh towel and, if necessary, clean your makeup brush before using it again. Smaller bruises can be concealed with make-up so that you don't have to expect long downtimes. By applying a concentrate containing hyaluronic acid after the treatment, the feeling of tension can be counteracted and the feeling of the skin can be optimized.
The thread lifting can be combined with all other aesthetic treatments such as injections with hyaluronic acid, botox or mesotherapy.
