The constant advances in Aesthetic Medicine allow to perform increasingly less invasive techniques. Small interventions that without having to enter the operating room get more natural results.
The facial tension yarns are transparent filaments that can be fixed or resorbable and have small spicules that allow to elevate or correct facial flabby tissues. It consists of introducing under the skin , using a fine guide wire specially designed for this purpose, threads of material totally compatible with the human body, being anchored in the subcutaneous cellular tissue.
Once introduced, they are tractioned and a natural tension of the tissue is produced, obtaining a lifting effect. It can be used to lift sagging eyelids, correct asymmetric eyebrows, lift sagging tissues of the facial contour and cervical area, reposition sagging cheekbones and generally treat facial aging .
The way to place the tensioners will depend on the area to be treated and will vary from one person to another. Once the threads are placed, the body will generate new structures of collagen that will wrap the threads and help keep the tissue elevated.
This technique does not replace the classic facelift but allows a facial rejuvenation without losing the natural features of the face. It is a procedure that can be complemented with other rejuvenation techniques. Can be combined with botulinum toxin , volume fillers, peels or laser therapies. It does not contraindicate a future facial surgery either .
During the first days there may be slight inflammation and small irregularities that resolve spontaneously in a few days. Normally, the patient can be incorporated immediately into normal activities. The effect is maintained for a period of 2 to 4 years , although the duration may vary depending on the type of yarn, the age, the structure of the fabrics and the number of yarns used.
The technique in expert hands is simple, performed ambulatory with local anesthesia, does not leave scars, does not require admission and the results are immediate.
