Softlfing with tension threads

Les fils tenserus et le soft lifting

 The principle of the procedure of thread lifting is to introduce threads under the skin by a small incision under local anesthesia and to tighten the skin. It is mainly used for the oval of the face, reinforcement of the cheekbones, lifting of eyebrows and tighteninig of the neck; They can also be used for other parts of the body.

The tension threads can be resorbable or non-resorbable:

  • Non-resorbable threads resemble surgical threads and contain small bands to hang and hold the dermis.
  • The resorbable threads use resorbable polylactic acid cones or balls that will retain the skin and create an additional layer of new collagen (biostimulation of collagen), these tension threads are usually well tolerated (SILHOUETTE SOFT®).

Thread lifting: is it for you?

If you have an oval face that is damaged after a significant weight loss or simply after reaching 40 years, thread lifting is a perfect procedure for you. It can help to raise your eyebrows and temples, regain the cheeks and toghten your neck a little.


SOFT LIFTING OR LIFTING BY TENSION THREADS

How do you apply tensor wires for face facial rejuvenation or soft lifting?

Skin cleansing is essential and a gentle antiseptic and anesthetic cream are applied. We decide with the patient the orientation of the tension threads and we draw on the skin the orientation of these threads. We do three small points of local anesthesia and then little incisions through which the threads are inserted. Normally we needed two threads per cheek and two on each side of the neck.

Complications (with well positioned threads)

They are exceptional. One of them is visibility or even exteriorization of a non-resorbable thread that will be then removed. In fact it is important to accept to have a modest result in term of cutaneous retention. This is not a surgical face lift so there is no scar. It's ideal for reparing starting sagging oval of the face, for raising the cheecks or maitanance of the previous facelift.

The oval of the face is relieved and the slight rise of the cheeks creates the effect of facial rejuvenation.
Of course there are limits to the technique if the face is too loose, it is necessary to opt for a surgical facelift or the neck which alone will redistribute the volumes and rejuvenate the face for several years.
To do this, do not take aspirin or anticoagulant 10 to 15 days before treatment.

Duration of the threads
12 to 18 months. The resorbable threads have the advantage of being reabsorbed and it is possible to put some threads back every year.
