Sagging skin: a natural evolution

Skin aging is a natural and inevitable process. As a result of genetic and environmental factors, aging results in sagging and loss of skin tone, whether in the face or the body. To limit these effects, tensing threads are a revolution. Neither surgery nor general anesthesia is necessary: ​​a simple and non-invasive medical facelift.

The technique

The tensor thread technology (Silhouette Soft, Croma) is used to lift the face and body. These threads are made of a material called PDO (polydioxanone), which also consists of absorbable surgical suture threads.

There are different types:

  • smooth single threads for tissue induction and collagen synthesis. These will be positioned as a mesh, to maintain and tighten the treated area.
  • more sophisticated threads of variable shapes (spirals, notches, cones, etc.), which will adhere to the skin and allow the volumes of the face or body to be repositioned.

This technique is an actual medical facelift.

A sagging face will be plumped up, a relaxed neck will be redrawn, a wrinkled belly or arms will be lifted. Immediately after the treatment, you will be able to appreciate 20% of the result that will be complete after 1 to 3 months. Indeed, these wires are absorbable and don’t remain permanently in the insertion area. They dissolve in the following months and thus induce a strong synthesis of collagen in this same area. Your natural collagen will then replace the wires. The skin thus retains this completely authentic lifted appearance. For a lasting result, up to several years.

The session

Depending on the surface to be treated, a skin treatment session using tensor threads lasts between 30 minutes and 1 hour. Each session begins with a careful diagnostic examination of the skin and the areas to be worked by the doctor.


Once the diagnosis has been established, the treatment has been defined and consent has been given, the doctor’s assistant performs an antiseptic cleansing of the skin and the application of an anesthetic cream in order to make the treatment comfortable. The type of tensor wire (PDO, Silhouette Soft and Croma) will be chosen according to the indications and desired effects.

At the end of the tensing treatment, the assistant evenly applies a soothing mask with hyaluronic acid or arnica. Some bruising may appear but will subside in 1 week.
