From the age of 40 a slight sagging of the skin may appear on the arms. The placement of thread tensioners can correct this unsightly discomfort and prevent the advancement of flaccidity due to its anchoring action. These yarns of different lengths are composed of PDO (Polidoxanone), a bioabsorbable and biocompatible material. The intervention is completely painless and is performed on an outpatient basis, in about 30 minutes after which the patient can make life completely normal without suffering any discomfort.

The flaccidity of the skin begins to show itself from the 40 years, and in the arms usually it is very visible 

Positioning technique

To place the Japanese tension yarns, the first step is to delimit the area where the treatment will be applied starting from a drawing of grid lines similar to a network.

The thread is placed under the skin. It is introduced through a light puncture and then the cannula used is removed. In this way the thread is tensioned without an anchoring being necessary.The magic threads can not be seen and can not be felt.

After placing the threads the area where the treatment has been applied is mechanically tensed and the skin is redensified. This allows to delay the fall of the tissues and makes the skin remain more firm and static.

The elastin and collagen levels are increased in the tissues around the area where the wire mesh has been placed.

These threads do not produce any kind of allergy or rejection, so it is not necessary to perform an allergy test.

The treatment with threads for arms can be done in a single session or in more, depending on the case. The number of sessions required will be determined by the number of threads that need to be placed for the treatment. To know how many are necessary you have to consult with the specialist. The important thing is not to exceed three sessions and that these are always distances in more than a month.

The placement of tension threads is recommended for people aged 40 years and older who suffer from sagging arms. The results of the treatment are maintained for approximately 12 months.
