Double chin rejuvenation with tension threads is a non-surgical procedure performed to tighten and lift sagging skin in the double chin area and improve its appearance. A double chin, also known as a double chin, is a common problem that can appear as we age.
How is a double chin rejuvenation performed with tension threads?
Below, we explain the general steps followed in this procedure:
- Local anesthesia: Before starting the procedure, local anesthesia is applied to the jowl area to reduce any discomfort or pain.
- Insertion of the tension threads: the next step is the insertion of the tension threads through small incisions in the skin of the jowl. The threads are made of biocompatible material and are inserted under the skin using a special needle. The threads have small hooks that anchor into the skin and are used to lift and tighten it.
- Adjusting the threads: Once the threads have been inserted, they are adjusted to achieve the desired result. This may involve pulling the threads in different directions to tighten the skin or tying them to ensure they stay in place.
- Closing the incisions: After the threads are adjusted, the incisions are closed with stitches or skin adhesives.
- Recovery: After the procedure, the patient may experience some discomfort in the jowl area, but these symptoms usually disappear within a few days. The person can return to normal activity in a short period of time, although it is recommended to avoid any vigorous physical activity for a few days.
Why do double chins appear?
There are several factors that can contribute to its appearance, including:
- Loss of skin elasticity: With aging, the skin loses its natural elasticity, which can cause the skin under the chin to loosen and droop.
- Fat accumulation: Fat accumulation in the jowl area can also be a factor. Over time, the body may begin to store fat in this area, which can cause the skin to stretch and cause a double chin.
- Genetics: Genetics can also play an important role in the appearance of a double chin. If your family has a history of developing a double chin, you are more likely to develop it too.
- Loss of muscle tone: Weakening of the jaw and neck muscles can also cause a double chin. Over time, these muscles can lose their tone and firmness, which can cause the skin under the chin to become loose.
- Posture: Poor posture, such as frequently hunching your shoulders or leaning your head forward, can also cause a double chin. This can affect muscle tone and skin elasticity in the neck and jaw area.
- Weight gain: Weight gain can cause fat to accumulate in the neck and jaw area, which can cause a double chin.
