Objectives of resorbable tensor threads
Treatment with absorbable tensor threads is a non-invasive medical facelift technique that corrects sagging skin in the middle third of the face and improves the oval of the face and neck, with immediate, natural results.
Tensor or suspension threads, made from polydioxanone (a material that is biocompatible with the human body), cling to deep tissues thanks to small resorbable cones.
The resorption of the threads leads to a natural production of collagen, which prolongs the tightening effect, giving the face a new firmness for a non-surgical facelift.
Today, it’s the only non-invasive technique that immediately delivers a satisfying lifting effect, re-tensioning the skin on the face – without giving it extra volume if it doesn’t need it.
Tensor threads can also be used to reposition and restore volumes, improving facial aesthetics for a more rested, rejuvenated result.
The effects of tensor threads are immediate and last about a year.
Who are absorbable tensor threads intended for?
Treatment with absorbable tensor threads is intended for women and men with the beginnings of sagging skin on the face and neck and/or loss of volume in the cheekbones.
Tensor threads are therefore indicated for patients who are not yet good candidates for facelifts, as early as their forties, or for people who wish to rejuvenate their face without undergoing surgery.

It should be noted that in the case of too much sagging, tensor threads will no longer be able to sufficiently tighten the oval of the face, and a surgical facelift will then become essential to rejuvenate the face and correct skin sagging.
The areas of the face that can be treated with absorbable tensor threads are:
- The oval of the face, tensor threads will reshape the mandibular line.
- Cheekbones and cheeks will regain their fullness.
- Moderately relaxed neck and jowls.
- Eyebrows, whose drooping gives a sad, tired look.
An initial consultation with your specialist is essential to find out if this treatment is suitable for your particular situation.

Procedure for an absorbable tensor thread session
A precise, personalized diagnosis is first established with your aesthetic doctor before the session, and a suitable procedure will be chosen according to the patient’s objectives.
It is important to avoid exposure to the sun, to be in good health and to be free of local skin infections on the day of surgery. Your doctor will explain the pre- and post-treatment recommendations at your first consultation.
Details of the procedure
The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and does not require hospitalization. An injection at the entry points of the tensor threads provides complete analgesia.
The sutures are inserted through a micro-incision in the skin that does not require stitches. The procedure lasts an hour on average, and varies according to the number of threads required.
The patient can return home right after the session.
You can resume your activities immediately after the placement of absorbable tensioning sutures.
In most cases, you can return to work the very next day.
However, for 6 to 8 hours after the session, you should remain calm and avoid any violent exercise. It’s also recommended not to mobilize the face (sports, facials, massages), or laugh excessively.
Some bruising may be visible for about ten days. In the first few days, temporary irregularities may be observed due to the inhomogeneous distribution of the edema, which disappears within a few days. There may also be a small dimple, which will disappear after a week.
For a week, avoid any intense sports, sun exposure in the event of haematomas, and facial massages.
The lifting effect is immediately visible, as the skin is tightened and lifted thanks to the tensor effect of the threads on the tissues.
The final result takes ten to fifteen days.
Even if the thread is reabsorbed within a few months, the effect generally lasts up to a year, as the skin reacts by producing collagen along the thread’s path.
The goal of this treatment is to bring about an improvement and not to achieve perfection. If your expectations remain realistic, the obtained result should give you utmost satisfaction.
During your initial consultation, our doctors will tell you what the final effect will be.
