What Are Tension Threads?

Tension threads are medical-grade, fully biocompatible threads composed of natural polymers like polydioxanone. They are strategically positioned under the skin with the help of a cannula. These notched threads cling deep within the skin, allowing the practitioner to reposition tissues. You can, therefore, achieve a lifting effect without having to deal with the downtime and complexities of invasive surgery. The PDO smooth threads break down naturally and are absorbed into the skin after 2 to 3 years.

Aftercare With Tension Threads

PDO threads are categorized as a nonsurgical, noninvasive aesthetic procedure and, therefore, demand a minimal recovery period. It is an outpatient procedure, so you can resume your activities almost immediately. However, for best results, there are certain recovery and aftercare guidelines you must adhere to. 

  • Avoid touching or massaging the treated area for the first 48 hours
  • Avoid direct exposure to the sun
  • Do not do intense exercise for at least 48 hours after your collagen thread procedure.
  • Try to limit excessive facial expressions at least 1 week after treatment, as it may compromise the positioning of the threads.
  • Apply cold compresses to the treated area to limit inflammation, bruising, or discomfort.

FAQs Facial Tightening Threads

1. How is The Tension Thread Procedure Carried Out?

Tension threads are a noninvasive procedure that does not demand any incisions or marks. Before the treatment, your specialist will administer local anesthesia to eliminate any discomfort you might feel. The procedure is quick, taking just around 30 minutes to complete. Small needle-like cannulas are used to insert the collagen threads into the skin to reposition the skin as needed and give the face a natural-looking lift while remaining completely undetectable. They further help stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.

2. How Long Do The Effects of Tension Threads Last?

The results obtained from tensioning wires are not permanent but long-lasting, typically offering a natural lift that lasts 1 to 3 years. However, the longevity of your results further depends on several factors, including the quality of your skin and the procedure’s combination with other treatments.
