Thread lift or non surgical lifting. This aesthetic medicine method makes it possible to tighten the distended tissues following skin sagging. This medical lift can be performed on different areas of the body to tone up and reshape an aging silhouette.
Causes: What is sagging skin?
Three main causes are identified to explain the sagging skin, with a loss of firmness and elasticity:
-Physiological causes, when the skin is naturally stretched, such as during pregnancy. If this stretching is significant on skin that loses its elasticity, sagging appears.
-Metabolic causes, in particular by accumulation of fatty tissue, which creates tension on the skin in terms of volume and weight. Even if the patient becomes thinner, the skin does not necessarily return to its natural state and the skin sags with a sluggish appearance.
-Causes acquired with the skin's aging process where the connective tissue loses its collagen fibers (firmness) and elasticity, causing sagging under the effect of the tissues weight.
How does a threads-lift work on the skin?
A facelift refers to a set of techniques to lift sagging tissue, repositioning sagging volumes to naturally reshape contours.
When excess skin needs to be resected, the only solution is often a surgical facelift. For less pronounced sagging, a lifting without surgery or medical lift provides a perfectly harmonious result.
Thread lift uses absorbable threads.
These threads, which are inserted under the skin, work in two ways.
There is an inductive effect (only present for smooth threads) with activation of the fibroblasts, to rebuild a quality dermis by neocollagenesis.
There is also a mechanical tensor effect with threads either notched or with cones, which "harpoon" the tissue: the simple traction on the thread then tightens the tissue. By the time the thread is resorbed, collagen synthesis has taken over and the thread is "replaced" by firm collagen fibers, restoring the skin's firmness and youthfulness.
For the body, your aesthetic doctor generally prefers a thread PDO polydioxanone absorbable and notched, such as V-Lift ® premium. The tolerance is perfect.
Non-surgical buttock lift with threads-lift
Threads lift are indicated if a moderate lifting effect is desired, but the area requires a large number of threads, which can limit the interest in terms of comfort and price. It appears that the reshaping effect often reduces the dimpled areas on buttock cellulite by smoothing them out.
Lifting of the thighs without surgery or of the arms with threads-lift
If the arm has a low fat load with limited skin fold sagging, the practitioner will re-tension it with a PDO absorbable thread, without brachioplasty.
If the arm is very fat-laden, a medical lift is often required in combination with arm liposuction. The pattern is similar for the inner thighs.
Non surgical breast contour lifting with threads lift
Threads lift (V-Lift premium) or mesofils (V-Lift Meso) offer a tensing effect to reshape the sagging areola. The practitioner does not touch the breast tissue, so it is safe.
Stretch mark reduction with threads-lift
The inducing effect of smooth PDO regenerates the dermis and corrects certain unsightly stretch marks on the belly.
Follow a body lift session with threads-lift
Your practitioner at the Clinique des Champs Élysées New York performs the procedure at a sterilized block. He selects the absorbable threads suitable for your case (diameter, structure, etc.).
For smooth thread (V-Lift Meso) application under the skin, he performs a needle meshing, with a single entry point.
For the more classic application of a notched thread (V-Lift Premium), he uses an entry point and an exit point, sliding the thread with a cannula to preserve the tissue: by simply pulling on both ends, the tensing effect is immediate and the skin is "notched".
The medical procedure is done under local anesthesia, on an outpatient basis and lasts about 30 to 60 minutes.
Body threads-lift results
The tensing effect can be seen as soon as the notched thread is pulled.
The inducing effect occurs later, it begins to be seen around one month and is optimal at three months. The skin is considerably rejuvenated, tighter, better curved, more toned, with volumes returned to their original position.
The result will last one to two years, provided that you do not gain weight.
