There is no required recovery time except in the case of bruises that disappear within 3-5 days.
It is a minimally invasive treatment, a bloodless one that aims at non-surgical tightening and of facial/neck and body skin. The results are extremely satisfying and impressive even in some cases, especially in combination with other non-surgical regenerative treatments. The threads are made of polydiaxone or polylactic acid, completely safe absorbable materials. They are divided into two major categories: simple threads (PDO) and lifting threads (Pull Cog).
These are fully absorbable and are inserted under the skin with the help of a small scarless needle. A tiny filament mesh is inserted in the case of PDOs, which is positioned in the area almost painlessly to defeat skin drop through the collagenesis they initially cause but also through the fibrosis they create after absorption in 2-3 months time. The production of collagen and elastin and the angiogenesis they cause continue for 1, 5 to 2 years. In the case of the Pull Cogs there are small cones along the thread causing immediate lifting effects on loose skin.
The therapy lasts less than an hour.
The treatment is performed using local anesthesia in the office and therefore the patient is not required to remain in the post treatment setting and can return immediately to his or her work and daily activities.
The effect lasts for at least two years, but treatment can be repeated before the two years have elapsed, if one wants to place more threads in other or in the same areas.
This treatment may not be applied to pregnant or breastfeeding mothers, people with autoimmune diseases, people with skin, inflammation .
There are no serious complications except the possible appearance of bruising and edema in some cases. Very rarely, the thread can be broken, which is immediately and effectively corrected by the doctor.
