The Tringle of Youth – three typical features aesthetic medicine identifies for a younger-looking face. High cheekbones, full cheek volume and a well-defined jawline. As we get older, cheeks flatten, nasolabial folds become more noticeable, the jawline becomes less defined, and we lose this triangular shape. So can we defy time and gravity? In a word, yes! Dr Francois Talks thread-lifting.
A quick, limited pain procedure with minimal downtime, threads are a technological innovation offering men and women what no treatment has ever provided. With extensive training and experience in carrying out this minimally invasive 30-minute treatment, Dr Francois talks thread-lifting and explains the efficacy of this “lunchtime facelift”.
“Collagen and elastin are the vital proteins that make up the supporting structure of the skin and keep it looking firm and youthful. However, as you age, it takes a longer time for your body to produce them which contributes to sagging skin and wrinkles. Heavy nasolabial folds, deepened smile lines, jowling, sunken cheeks – all these features can make you appear older and more tired. And while prevention is the best way to maintain your skin’s firmness and elasticity, threads are the best way to defy time and gravity,” he explains.
Instant lift, enhanced contours, and long-lasting results are only part of the threading effect. More importantly, threads also lift and regenerate by boosting natural collagen production that rejuvenates from within.
- LIFTING occurs when the tissue is compressed, and the skin elevated at the time of implanting the thread. After inserting the thread, slight pressure is applied to the treated area and the surface of the skin is reshaped.
- The REGENERATING effect is gradual and helps increase the volume of sagging areas and restores shape to the face. By resorbing the implanted suture, the threads act on the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating the body’s healing response. This results in the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, a process that continues over time.
