Traction threads return the face to a younger, refreshed look. Like wireless bio-revitalizing, traction threads can be considered a viable alternative to traditional facelift surgery. Traction threads are also applied on an outpatient basis and without resorting to anesthesia. This does not mean that anyone can get them. On the contrary: it is good to remember that even though medical aesthetics are increasingly less invasive, they still require a consultation with a medical professional.

What are traction threads, and how do they work?

Traction threads are made from polydioxanone, a monofilament absorbable by the human body. Because of this composition, traction threads are not permanent: the average body takes 6 to 8 months to absorb them. The treatment results are visible right away, and the complete healing time is 15 days, a brief period compared to that taken by the body to recover from a surgical facelift. 

The number of threads needed to obtain a good result depends on the patient and the size of the wires themselves. Generally, a doctor will insert from 2 to 10 traction threads.  

Where are traction threads used?

Used most of the times to confer to face an appearance younger, the wires of traction can also be used for the remodeling of various areas of the body:

  • Neck 
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  •  Buttocks

The duration of the procedure depends on the size of the area to be treated, and the result is always guaranteed. Contact Starks today for more information.
