Mesothreads for the face: the pros and cons of a facelift

There is probably no woman who does not dream of keeping her skin young and blooming as long as possible. But time is inexorable, and along with biological aging, the skin of the face changes, becomes covered with mimic wrinkles, loses its freshness and fades. Local cosmetics in the form of creams and gels for facial skin hide defects for a short time. And you don’t really want to do radical facelifts with the help of surgical intervention.

Modern innovative methods of cosmetology in the correction of age-related defects offer women an equally effective method called mesothreads. Despite the fact that this is a new method in cosmetology, it has become no less popular in practice. What was the popularity of mesothreads? What are the advantages and disadvantages of the new method? Let’s consider this in more detail.

Mesothread features

Not so long ago, cosmetologists began to use thread lifting in facial skin rejuvenation, and already appeared – lifting with mesonites. Clinical studies on the use of the method were conducted by Korean cosmetologists. The first threads were developed for thin and sensitive skin. In Russia, the first procedures began to be carried out in 2012.

At its core, mesothreads are the thinnest fibers, which are injected subcutaneously perpendicular to the muscle fibers with the help of thin syringes. The procedure does not involve incisions or sutures. In the course of three months to a year, the threads completely dissolve. This “support” creates a kind of frame, relaxing the facial muscles, and smoothes them. For others, this method is perceived as a Botox injection. Thus, the effect of “support” of withered skin is created and its elasticity increases. With the introduction of threads, conditions are created that stimulate the formation of natural collagen.

The effect of the procedure is noticeable daily. After two months, a strong framework of connective tissue is formed around the thread. When the threads dissolve, this framework retains its properties for up to four years. Mesothreads are indicated for any age with certain problems. Simply, for young skin, fewer threads are needed than for a woman after 50 years. The procedure is painless, but at the slightest discomfort, anesthesia can be administered.


Types of threads

Three types of threads are used for the procedure:

  • from polydioxane. This is a material that is coated with polyglycic acid. It breaks down under the skin after six months. The tightening effect lasts up to four years. Popular to use;
  • from gold. The reinforced thread is injected subcutaneously. Maintains skin elasticity for up to a year. The material was first used in mesothreads and its use was justified by the fact that gold does not provoke allergic reactions. In practice, dermatitis and itching occurred in some patients. Rarely used;
  • from platinum. Platinum elements cover the polyglycol thread. After two months, the conductor dissolves and only platinum remains under the skin. Platinum enhances metabolic processes in tissues, creates a barrier to the formation of free radicals, promotes the flow of oxygen and nutrients. The effect lasts up to a year.

Mesothreads can be used on any parts of the face and neck, where there is excessive sagging of the skin in the form of folds. The threads are placed along the lines of wrinkles and folds or cover the mimic areas of the face.

Carrying out the procedure

Before the procedure, the face is cleaned and treated with an antiseptic. At the request of the client, cooling or anesthesia is used. For the procedure, a special thin needle is provided. A thin thread is attached to the sharp part of the needle. Moreover, different parts of the face are pierced with different needles. When piercing the upper layers of the epidermis, the thread remains in the skin and is fixed. Due to the fact that the needle is made of special steel, it can be controlled based on the characteristics of skin defects. The duration of the procedure is about forty minutes.

After that, special masks are used, which contribute to the adaptation of the implant threads to the skin of the face. Unlike other “pull up” methods, you will need more threads when using the mesonite method. To support the cheeks, up to thirty threads are needed, and for the neck and the entire surface of the face, they need about two hundred pieces. The cost of the procedure depends on the number of threads used, and not on the working area.


Side effects of the procedure

The use of mesonite is contraindicated in:

  • colds of viral etiology;
  • rashes on the skin, the presence of papillomas and warts;
  • oncological neoplasms;
  • heart failure;
  • hypertension;
  • pregnancy.

There are few prohibitions on the procedure, but before doing threadlifting with the help of threads, consult a therapist. Although cosmetologists are confident in the safety of the procedure, it all depends on the skills of the doctor. If the procedure is performed unprofessionally, then a defect may occur:

  • rolling into an accordion of the skin of the face. This occurs in a situation where the needle loses its precision and deviates. Such an unsuccessful introduction provokes the occurrence of this defect;
  • tubercles form at the injection site. They remain on the skin of the face for up to three months. These “extraordinary” situations arise due to the incompetence of the doctor.

Positive and negative effects of the procedure

The “gold” and “platinum” fever in the use of the method has long passed. These materials were replaced by a higher quality and durable material – polydioxanone. This composition is not new and has long been used as a suture material in surgery. Frame from these threads:

  • improves skin elasticity. The threads create a “hammock” effect, thereby firmly holding the shape of the face. Absorbable threads are replaced by similar organic fibers;
  • does not tighten the skin and does not attract excess moisture;
  • does not change the shape and features of the face;
  • promotes skin regeneration;
  • do not cause allergic reactions;
  • The new material is not rejected by skin cells, and is combined with other cosmetic procedures and does not require a rehabilitation period.


Due to the use of low-quality material on the skin may appear:

  • hematomas and swelling;
  • at the puncture site, pain and slight tingling are felt;
  • reinforced mesh does not dissolve on the skin for a long time.

As a rule, cosmetologists use high-quality material for mesothreads from Korean manufacturers. The use of other materials may lead to the above symptoms. Therefore, before conducting mesothreads, ask about the “origin” of the material.

In general, the procedure is painless and safe. The only condition for the procedure is professionalism. The doctor must not only have surgical skills, but also, be proficient in acupuncture, and be certified to perform…
