We can say that they start asking about cosmetologist’s filament techniques when injections and the hardware procedures have already passed the stage, and the result seems not to be very pleasing, but I still do not want to go to the plastic surgeon for a face lift.
In fact, the range of application of meso threads is quite wide, with their help it is possible not only to correct age-related changes, but also preventive maintenance. Thread lifting is also used in protocols to maintain the result of a surgical tightening.
What is mezzanine
A mezzanine looks like a fishing line, not thicker than a human hair, with a conductor – a needle or cannula (the same metal tube without a piercing tip is used in cosmetology when there is a high risk of damage to blood vessels or nerves during the manipulation). Thanks to the conductor, the doctor introduces the thread to the required depth at the required angle and controls its placement in the tissues – because the biorevitalization effect or tightening requires different conditions. Like the threads.
The meso threads have different lengths, thicknesses and reliefs: they can be smooth or have notches. The material from which they are made may also be different. Threads made of polydioxanone (PDO), polycaprolactone and polylactic acid dissolve over time, and threads made of silicone and polypropylene will remain with you forever. Most often meso threads are placed in the reinforcement technique – several threads are inserted tightly one to another under a certain vector, as if flashing the skin.
Smooth meso threads
Smooth threads trigger rejuvenation processes, improve microcirculation and skin quality. Indications for their use will be wrinkles around the eyes, purse-string wrinkles (around the mouth), shallow nasolabial folds and wrinkles of the “puppet”, the first signs of a “floating” face contour, as well as general flabbiness of the skin of the face, neck, décolleté zone. With the help of these threads even make a clear contour and adjust the shape of the lips.
Threads are also used to work on the body. They solve the problem of sagging skin of the abdomen, inner thighs, skin above the knees. Their introduction improves blood circulation and metabolism in the target area and thus helps to combat local fatty deposits.
When placed more superficially, meso threads stimulate collagen production, make the skin more dense and supple, it feels like a lifting effect. If the goal is biorevitalization, doctors usually advise filament from polylactic acid.
In this case, the thread is twisted around the needle. It is believed that this position provides the formation of a denser and stronger collagen frame. Lifting effect spiral meso threads give immediately, plus they eventually revitalize the skin. Spiral meso threads are used for lifting eyebrows, reinforcing and lifting the middle and lower third of the face, to correct the chin area.
These threads have micro-hooks that, clinging to the fabric, tighten and fix them. Notched threads help achieve more clear oval face. Moreover, the greater the degree of tissue prolapse, the thicker and longer the threads are needed.
Contraindications for thread lifting almost the same as for injection procedures:
- individual intolerance to the substance of which the threads are made;
- infectious diseases;
- autoimmune diseases;
- type I-II diabetes mellitus;
- malignant neoplasms;
- exacerbation of chronic diseases;
- propensity for education keloids;
- pregnancy and lactation;
- bleeding disorder, as well as taking medications that can affect it;
- the presence of non-absorbable implants in the area of thread insertion.
In order to get the best effect, cosmetologists usually prescribe procedures that improve the quality of the skin – biorevitalization, peelings, laser techniques, before staging. Then, if necessary, botulinum therapy or filler introduction. Only then put the thread. In general, the training program for thread lifting is individual and depends on the needs of the patient’s skin and the severity of age-related changes. After thread lifting, any other facial manipulations, whether injections or hardware procedures, should be carried out no earlier than a month later.
