Effects of facial modeling through hyaluronic threads

The use of hyaluronic threads is an innovative method that allows you to shape the contour of the face and improve the appearance of the area around the cheeks and chin. Threads allow to fill areas that have lost their firmness and freshness. Thanks to the improvement in the binding of water molecules in the skin, this treatment allows to obtain the immediate effect of firming and moisturizing the skin, as well as improving the volume or smoothing out wrinkles and furrows.

What does face modelling treatment look like?

The treatment is preceded by a thorough medical examination. Aesthetic medicine specialist verifies the indications and possible contraindications to the procedure and decides about all elements of the therapy. The treatment starts with the use of anesthesia – usually in the form of anesthetic cream, and in some cases dental anesthesia. The main part of the procedure is performed using specially adapted needles – microcannula, which thanks to their rounded ends minimize the feeling of pain, and at the same time reduce the risk of bruising around the punctures. The main advantage of the “soft” facelift is the minimum number of punctures in the area requiring treatment. Cannulas are inserted into punctures made previously with a microneedle, and during their removal, the injected preparation with hyaluronic acid in the form of linear threads.

Treatment time

The treatment lasts from 30 to 90 minutes.

The period of convalescence after treatment

The low invasiveness of the procedure means that the patient does not require a long period of convalescence. Sometimes a slight local irritation may occur, but they generally disappear within 4 hours after the procedure. Sometimes, a slight swelling occurs for 2 days after the treatment. The use of special microcannulae eliminates the risk of bruising on the skin.

The duration of the effects

The maintenance of the obtained results depends on the used preparation as well as on the lifestyle of the patient. Most often it is a period of 9 to 12 months. In the best cases, the preparation lasts up to 18 months.
