The procedure of a filament lift, or filament lifting, firmly took its position in the list of rejuvenating procedures that a woman dreams of, and this is understandable. The filament lift does not injure the tissues and does not leave scars and scars, because under the skin the threads are inserted through the microprojections using special thin needles, does not require rehabilitation in the hospital, is performed for an hour and under local anesthesia.
Of course, the thread for the filament lifting is chosen and appointed by the cosmetologist, but it is also important for the patient to understand why the specialist stops on this or that product. Let's consider, what threads are presented today in the cosmetology market and in what their advantage.
Types of threads for filament lifting
All threads for braces are divided into two main groups: absorbable and non-absorbable. The former are permanently preserved in tissues (for example, gold or platinum threads, Spring Thread threads), the latter - after 1-1,5 years biodegradable (for example, caprolactone filaments).
On the Russian market there are several manufacturers of absorbable threads: Dermafil Happy Lift (Dermafil Happy Lift), Silhouette Soft (Silhouette Soft), etc.
The most common material from which resorbable threads are made, including Dermafil Happy Lift is caprolactone. He was used by surgeons for many years during operations and proved his absolute safety. However, unlike the surgical, caprolactone for the filament lifting has a longer period of resolution: from 8 months to 2 years, it all depends on the thickness of the thread and the individual characteristics of the patient. It is noteworthy that even after resorption of caprolactone filaments the effect of lifting does not disappear: being in tissues, the filaments stimulate active synthesis of collagen, which forms a framework and compacts tissues, the skin returns smoothness and elasticity.
Another criterion is the configuration of cosmetic threads. Here you can identify smooth threads and textured, along the entire length of which there are special protrusions (notches, cones, etc.). Inserts are needed to ensure that the thread is firmly attached to the tissues and not shifted over time, thereby maximizing the lifting effect. So, for example, along the entire length of the Happy End threads, the incisions are arranged by the "herringbone". Due to this thread is very firmly fixed in the tissues, any possibility of their displacement is excluded and the effect of lifting and revitalization increases. Due to such properties, cosmeticians and plastic surgeons call thread with notches a real alternative to surgical lifting.
Not many people know, but the threads for braces do not only deal with the problem of omission of the facial tissues, but also a wide range of other aesthetic problems, not only the face, but also the body. Depending on the caliber, length, density and direction and location of the incisions, they solve the following problems:
- Fuzzy face oval.
- Omission of the cheekbone part, cheeks, edge of the eyebrows.
- Double chin.
- Pronounced nasolabial folds.
- Deep wrinkles (pussy, wrinkles, "bar codes").
- Flabby, atonic, age skin.
Some manufacturers also produce highly specialized threads. The Nose thread is designed for non-surgical nasal remodeling, the Boca thread for correcting the shape of the lips, and Vaginal Narrower is a thread to eliminate weakness of the pelvic floor muscles, is indicated to women after delivery.
Now you know about the peculiarities of threads for a filament lifting and what a thread lift is. Remember: it is necessary to take responsibility for choosing a doctor and how to correct it. Which he recommends.
