As time goes by, facial skin starts to sag, skin on the cheeks and cheekbones starts to droop and neck skin starts to slacken. Along with wrinkles that crease the skin, sagging skin is one of the main symptoms of natural aging.
Sagging skin is due to a loss of elasticity in the skin, which tends to slacken and loosen, and that changes the overall shape of the face. Over the years, the body begins to slow down its production of collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin fibers; this makes the skin lose its firmness and youthful appearance. Sagging skin makes the face look tired, aged and sad.
The facial areas affected by sagging skin are:
- Tails of the brows
- Upper eyelids
What are regenerating thread lifts?
Regenerating thread lifts have a real tightening and brightening effect on the face. These new threads have a dual action on the face:
- A natural lifting and tightening effect: in 45 minutes you will take a few years off your face. Using a local anesthetic, the doctor inserts the threads smoothly and painlessly with a needle in the area to be treated. The threads have mini bidirectional cones that hook onto tissues when the doctor pulls them. As a result, sagging skin will tighten immediately.
- A gradual volumizing effect: the threads contain polylactic acid, which spreads in the tissues once the threads are reabsorbed, thus making it possible to redefine the treated area and stimulate the production of collagen, which is key to maintaining healthy skin.
- Redefine the jawline
- Smooth the neck
- Lift the cheekbones
- Raise the tails of the brows
What happens at a session?
The session lasts between 45 minutes and 1 hour. The doctor inserts the threads using a cannula, then, by pulling on the threads, creates traction in the mini cones until they hook onto the skin tissue. By pulling the thread, the doctor will make it possible to pull on the hooked skin, thus smoothing the sagging area.
The regenerating thread lift helps to achieve noticeable results and preserve a person’s natural beauty. They do not give a drawn or rigid look and make it possible to redefine the face with effects that last several years. Their “anti-sagging skin” effect also helps to smooth wrinkles and creased skin.
Patients look instantly rejuvenated and are able to resume their activities after the session (sport and exercise are not recommended for at least 1 week). This type of procedure requires a local anesthetic, but leaves no scar and does not require time away from social activities. Some slight swelling may appear at the points where the threads enter and leave the skin, as well as some slight swelling in the treated area. These symptoms are entirely normal and will gradually disappear.
