Facelift with tensor wires

As the years pass, the skin loses its elasticity, which leads to a reduction in volume, sagging and the appearance of wrinkles. Several techniques exist to rejuvenate the skin and provide a facelift while preserving a natural appearance. PDO threads are a minimally invasive way to achieve a facelift. This technique was developed in Europe in the 1990s and has been greatly improved since then. Initially non-absorbable, PDO threads have now evolved into an absorbable Polydioxanone technology, which allows for the stimulation and production of collagen from the tissue that is in contact with the threads. This method is less expensive than surgery, and especially less invasive than surgery. It allows for the treatment of patients who do not necessarily have enough sagging to undergo surgery. It can also be used to treat patients who would be surgical candidates, but who do not wish to undergo such an operation.

Polydioxanone (PDO) tensor sutures have a double benefit; they provide instant mechanical traction on the tissue and then allow for a gradual stimulation of collagen production. This promotes skin rejuvenation, a restoration of natural volume, an improvement in skin radiance and a reduction in wrinkles. It is important to understand that the threads will have a long-term impact on the skin. It is the improvement in the quality of the tissue that will persist over time and allow you to obtain a permanent result. The threads are completely resorbable over a period of 12 months.

The first results appear immediately after the installation of the PDO threads. However, the results will become more pronounced with time, as a reaction stimulating the quality of the skin will be triggered as soon as the tightening threads are installed. The results will therefore be more visible after a few months. This allows for a gradual settlement of results.

PDO threads are very interesting tools for lifting the eyebrows, reducing jowls, reducing dark circles, reducing perioral wrinkles and improving the oval of the face. It is even possible to perform a nose lift with adapted threads. Threads can also be used on the body, such as on the knees, buttocks or arms… We will be happy to guide you during your consultation.

As aging is a process that cannot be stopped, it is certain that the benefits obtained will ultimately be caught up in the natural cycle of life. The medical and aesthetic care we offer is a natural way to accompany your aging process.
