Tension Threads

Get smooth skin and a defined face without having to do a surgical lift through surgery. By implanting fully absorbable and biocompatible tension threads, facial sagging is reduced without modifying the expression of the face or its natural features, thus recovering the structure of a young face.

The tension threads are threads of a biocompatible and fully absorbable material that tightens the desired areas and recovers a younger face structure. They are made with PDO (Polydioxanone), a material of high biocompatibility and completely absorbable, the same threads that are used as sutures for heart surgery.

In addition to improving our external appearance, the tension threads make our body recover the natural production of collagen through its stimulating effect by reabsorbing the threads, in this way we achieve that the improvement of facial tension lasts longer.

Tensor effect and lifting effect without surgery.

The session lasts for 1 hour.

The result is immediately visible and the lifting effect can last between 10 and 12 months.

The discomfort is slight at the time of inserting the threads.

How is the treatment?

The treatment consists of introducing the tension threads at the points where we want to decrease the flaccidity. If the patient needs it, topical anesthesia can be applied to reduce discomfort at the time of treatment. Once introduced, the function of tensioning threads is to increase collagen production, creating a lifting effect that is achieved by starting the absorption process of the threads themselves.

In the specific case of spiculated tensioning threads, the tension effect is instantaneous, since due to its spiculated shape it retains the skin achieving a tension effect at the same time of implantation. In this case we use local anesthesia so that the patient does not feel any type of discomfort.

Areas to be treated

The tension threads are mainly used to firm the face and regain the shape of the facial oval, and also to regain tension in the cheeks.

In the specific case of Happy lift spiculated threads we use them above all in the lower jaw area, leaving the chin and jaw part much more defined.

Biodegradable and biocompatible material made from a synthetic polymer. It is an excellent enhancer of endogenous collagen production.

Polycaprolactone PCL

Polycaprolactone is a powerful collagen inducer. Known for its absorption and biodegradation capacity, in addition to its high resistance and flexibility. It can remain stable for up to two years before its complete reabsorption.
