Tightening, the gentle way: Face Value

Trending procedures in cosmetic medicine are minimally invasive treatments that stimulate collagen production. One of the newest of these are mono threads; smooth, non-barbed threads that tighten the skin when lifting is not required.

Ideal for rejuvenating the skin without adding volume or ‘bulk’ to the treatment area, mono threads are a complement to volumising treatments such as dermal fillers. Inserted into the dermal layer of the skin, the threads activate collagen synthesis to gradually tighten and rejuvenate the skin. They provide support to the skin and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by improving skin texture.

The mono threads used at Face Value are made from polydioxanone, a durable, flexible, and absorbable polymer which have been used in surgery as absorbable stitches for decades. Multiple threads are inserted, often in a mesh-like pattern, stimulating the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid where they are placed. They are gradually absorbed and broken down by the body leaving skin feeling tighter and looking more youthful.

Typically, 10-30 threads that are pre-threaded onto a fine needle are used to treat an area. There is no downtime apart from the possibility of slight bruising.

Results are most noticeable after eight to twelve weeks and last around twelve months or longer. Suitable treatment areas include cheeks, lower face and jowls, around the mouth and perioral lines, crows feet, and they are great for neckline and skin laxity.
