Threads are recommended for treating laxity both as a preventive strategy and as a restorative solution. There are two different types of resorbable threads: bio-revitalizing and traction.
What is it?
Bio-revitalizing threads are made of a biocompatible substance that stimulates the natural production of collagen. The threads are placed at strategic points on the face, redesigning its shape.
How does it work?
With bio-revitalizing threads, the lifting effect is achieved by tissue response and not by mechanical action. They are inserted into the face without the use of anaesthetic and produce an immediate lifting effect, which is perfected in 20 days. Thanks to the natural stimulation of collagen, the lifting effect can last for up to 24 months. The traction threads are implanted in the skin through cannulae and local anaesthetic is used for this procedure. The bidirectional pins with which they are equipped, enable the threads to grip the skin and pull it in. They are particularly suitable for malar or mid-face lifting and for treating the jaw, neck and eyebrow area.
Recovery time and mode
The treatment does not require recovery time; any slight redness disappears within a few minutes. Normal activities can be resumed immediately, with the exception of saunas, sunbathing and strenuous sporting activities.
Results are immediately visible and natural. No filling is involved, only stretching and lifting of the tissues. For this type of treatment, an aesthetic doctor with a thorough knowledge of the human anatomy and a natural aesthetic approach is indispensable, so that the technique can be performed correctly.

“The effectiveness of the threads is variable and depends on where they are placed. They typically last between six months and a year.”
