Tensile threads

A face, a neck with wrinkles or a relaxed neckline spoil the image, so in the plastic surgery clinic of Dr. Pedro Terán and Dr. Francesca Zavalloni in Burgos, we advise the most revolutionary technique appeared in recent years:

The new PDO tensor threads with different ways of naming them (tensor threads or dermal tensor threads, also called mini threads, magic threads or Japanese threads) allow us to tighten the entire angle of the neck and facial oval without surgery without side effects and on an outpatient basis.

Indications of the tensor threads:

The application of these dermal tensors is indicated for facial skin sagging . It is a new method of skin repositioning from the implantation of multiple Polydioxanone threads that generate fibrin, fibrinogen and collagen over about a year, creating a vector network that acts as a support for the tissues where it is applied.

* Areas and results

The tensor threads accelerate microcirculation in the treated area causing the regeneration of cells and an increase in collagen synthesis for a prolonged period of 6 - 8 months, the time it takes for the threads to be reabsorbed by the body, leaving the fibrosis created and the lifting effect.

In turn, it acts causing a greater oxygenation of the area, which provides greater luminosity to the skin, improves the appearance of small wrinkles, nasolabial folds, lip corners, marionette wrinkles or sagging skin of the double chin or double chin.

Depending on the technique, they will be implanted in the deep dermis with the use of needles of different lengths and thicknesses, adapted to each area and to the degree of need of each patient, producing the desired lifting effect.

The number of threads used will vary depending on the needs of each patient. For a normal patient we can more or less estimate between 12 and 15 threads per area.

* Application technique

If we wanted to perform a complete facial treatment, including neck, it could require between 40 and 100 threads in a single session, or we will space it in different sessions and thus be able to incorporate to our work and social life when leaving the consultation. You will not need a recovery time and you can immediately return to your daily life.

It is easily applied, with topical anesthesia or cryoanesthesia, without hospitalization. Its application is fast (15/20 minutes), safe and painless. They do not cause allergies or rejection, nor do they have any side effects. Occasionally they may cause a slight inflammation in the area that subsides within a few hours.
