The “thread face lifting” method, which has become popular as “non-surgical face lift”; It is performed under local anesthesia in a period of 30 minutes to 1 hour. It is a procedure applied to correct the skin sagging that occurs in the face and neck area with the effect of gravity over time.
Even if it is a non-surgical method, it is important to provide surgical sterilization conditions and to be performed by a specialist doctor in order to prevent infection.
Thread applications in the face area started with the process called "spider web aesthetics". In this procedure, it is aimed to stimulate collagen production and to give the skin a more taut and fresh appearance by placing a dissolvable surgical suture (rope) under the skin with cannulas. After this experience, in order to provide a more lifting effect, these rope materials were produced in the form of awn ropes and the "rope hanging method" emerged.
The threads used are manufactured in permanent and temporary, that is, soluble form. The permanent threads are the so-called "French hangers" and they suspend the tissue with micro-sized silicone protrusions. Temporary, that is, melting threads, on the other hand, hang on to the tissue thanks to the serrations on them. These threads, by means of cannulas or needles, stretch the connective tissue called SMAS and the retaining ligaments under the skin and suspend the sagging skin structure.
The obvious effect starts immediately after the procedure, and the placed threads increase the collagen synthesis within a few weeks, increasing the skin quality and firmness over time. The duration of action of fusible threads varies depending on the material of manufacture and the differences in the metabolic rate of individuals and can be between 6 months and 2 years. Permanent suspension ropes show a longer term effect, such as 2-4 years.
Thread Face Lifting is a repeatable, reversible and fixable process. Immediately after the procedure, there may be swelling, redness, and suture lines due to edema and disappear spontaneously after a few days.
The " Thread Face Lifting method" gives effective results in patients who do not want to have surgery or who cannot have surgery, in patients with partial facial paralysis on one side of the face, in patients aged 30-60 years with wrinkles and sagging within certain limits, but who are not candidates for a full face lift.
For the first three weeks after the procedure, the mouth should not be opened too much, excessive facial expressions should not be made, one should not lie on his face, excessive sports and facial massage should not be done.
Only upward movements should be applied during the face wash process.
It should not be applied to patients with diabetes, coagulation disorders, skin infections, severe autoimmune diseases, children and pregnant women, and those who are allergic to biological materials used.
The prices of the Thread Face Lifting process vary according to the type of suspension material and the number of threads placed on the face.
