Facelifting without surgery? Thread facelift can provide up to -5 years!
Thread lifting is an alternative way of facial correction when mesotherapy, biorevitalization and other gentle rejuvenation techniques do not work anymore, but you still do not want to think about plastic surgery.
Non operational lifting
Thread lifting is the insertion into the deep layers of skin of cosmetic threads that tighten the sagging areas. They are pulled through the puncture with the help of a special cannula.
The advantage of the technique is the naturalness of the changes. The tissues return to their natural place, so the facial features remain the same. Traces of the intervention are not visible – punctures are made in the temporal part of the head, hidden by hair. The procedure takes not more than an hour and recovery takes an average of two weeks.
Types of threads
They are absorbable or non-absorbable, for example:
The first type is 3D mesothreads and they are the thinnest. They dissolve after six months, leaving behind collagenous frame. The method of their installment is the least traumatic, but requires a doctor of high professionalism.
The last three types are locking threads, which differ in the degree of tension.
“Silhouette lift” – has the most rigid fixation due to directional cones along the entire length. It is injected with a special cannula which can penetrate to the desired depth without injuring the vessels and preventing hematomas.
“Happy lift” and “Aptos” have directional notches along the entire length, it is how the tissues are attached. Their different configuration allows to solve problems in different parts of the face. For the correction of nasolabial folds so-called springs are used, for the tightening of the second chin – hammocks. In addition to mechanical lifting, the procedure gives the effect of rejuvenation due to the composition. For example, the L-lactic acid contained there stimulates collagen production, activates revitalization, and does not cause autoimmune reactions.
Mint Lift – premium absorbable meson threads for ultra-powerful lifting. The manufacturer is a well-known and one of the leading biotechnology companies HansBiomed (Seoul, Korea).
Threads are approved for use by state regulatory institutions around the world: FDA (CSUSA), CFDA (China), Ministry of Health of Ukraine, etc. According to Aesthetic Everything, Mint Lift is recognized as the #1 choice in the US in 2020.
The uniqueness of the threads in the spiral cast structure (the teeth on the thread are part of the cast structure). Mint Lift is produced using a special patented ebbing technology. And its teeth are arranged in a 360 ⁰C spiral. Thanks to this:
• Thread breakage is minimized (unlike all other threads, including APTOS, whose serrations increase the risk of breakage).
• Effective fixation to fabrics is ensured (in other threads, in particular APTOS, fixation to fabrics is ensured by serifs, which is less effective).
• According to research, the anchor force (fixation) provides a tension force 4 times stronger compared to analogues, which, in addition to reliability and strength, increases the manifestation of the lifting effect by 4 times.
Mint Lift, like any meson thread, is inserted into the surface layer of tissues – between the skin and adipose tissue. However, unlike traditional meson threads, Mint Lift provides a powerful face lift. While traditional meson threads mainly improve the structure of the skin, reducing its laxity.
“Ligature lifting” – lifting due to the installation of 1-2 ligature threads. These types of threads differ in the long-term result. Effect of absorbable filaments – 2-3 years, non-absorbable filaments – 5 years and more. Also, ligature threads do not contour unlike mesothreads. However, only a plastic surgeon deals with the installation of ligature threads.
After the procedure, hematomas, swelling, unpleasant or painful feelings at the fixation site are possible, but as they heal, they go away. To avoid adverse reactions, it is recommended to avoid active facial expressions within a few days after the introduction of the threads, not to go to the solarium, bath, sauna for two weeks, avoid thermal procedures for the face for a month, and physiotherapy for two months.
|Effect duration||2-5 years depends on thread type||9-12 months||1-2 years depends on thread type|
|Safety||These threads are made from traditional surgical suture material, they are 100% safe||There is a patented technology of spinning, for which there is a thread with teeth, which are chiselled to tissue, with a single twisted structure, smaller risk development, 4 times better effect||There are notches, which are less harmless, shards cause a high risk of uncontrolled fibrosis|
|For whom?||35-50 years old, all types of face||30-45 years? skinny face||35-50 years old, all types of face|
|Type of procedure||Mini-surgery under local anesthesia with obstructive anterior obstruction and minor rehabilitation (possible bruises)||Aesthetic procedure (importantly no rehabilitation in the eyes)||Aesthetic procedure with rehabilitation (possible bruises)|
How longlasting is the effect
The result is gradually dissapearing, but this process takes years. How many years or decades it will take depends on the type of thread used, the doctor’s recommendations and the level of his professionalism. Contact the ANACOSMA clinic professionals to ensure that the procedure is less traumatic and the result lasts as long as possible.
Consultation and mini-operation can be carried out by both a plastic surgeon and a dermatologist-cosmetologist doctor. So, ligature lifting (facelift by ligature threads) is performed by a plastic surgeon. But the installation of the mesothread (golden thread) is carried out by a cosmetologist. The doctor will tell you all the information you are interested in, about the result of the procedure and how it goes.
Ligature lifting requires the passage of basic medical tests, since this is a mini-operation. They can be taken directly at ANACOSMА.
Day of face lifting can be appointed immediately after consultation with the doctor. You will be operated in a convenient day for you, taking into account the schedule of the doctor and the clinic.
The mini-operation itself is carried out without cuts. Through the punctures, the doctor introduces special threads (ligature or mesothread). Threads are installed vertically, which allows counteracting gravitational omission of muscles and skin. The lifting can be performed in the neck, lower and upper parts of the face, forehead, and corners of the eyes. If desired, a minimally invasive operation (almost without surgery) is performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia and most often lasts only up to one hour.
A few months after the procedure, the threads dissolve, creating a reliable skeleton of the skin. The effect of the braces is visible almost immediately. The effectiveness and duration of this method depends on factors such as the age and condition of the skin, the lifestyle of the patient.
Lifting with mesothreads (thredlifting) does not require a hospital stay. However swelling, small bruises and loss of sensitivity may appear within a week after the procedure.
Facelifting by ligature threads assumes a deeper placement of threads by a plastic surgeon, therefore after the operation it is necessary to stay in the hospital for 1-2 days. Edema due to surgery will disappear after 7-10 days. Stitches are removed after 5 days or even earlier. For three weeks flights, visits to saunas, gyms are not recommended. Also in the case of ligature lifting for the best effect, it is recommended to undergo rehabilitation procedures (physiotherapy and cosmetology). They essentially consolidate the achieved result and allow returning to the usual way of life in a short time.
The effectiveness of the procedure and the durability of the facial filament lifting depend on the type of threads:
