Traction wires are a modern aesthetic medicine technique to achieve a lifting effect to the face and body without an invasive procedure. The procedure involves the insertion through cannulas of biocompatible wires that “pull” the skin and tissues and are applied primarily to areas such as the cheeks, neck, eyebrows, arms, thighs, and buttocks.
What are traction wires
Advancing age is the cause of the appearance of skin blemishes on the body and face. To address these conditions, modern aesthetic medicine offers several strategies, both concerning the body and the face.
One of the most popular techniques to have a lifting effect is that of traction wires.
The treatment involves the placement of small wires that involve lifting the skin and stimulating the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid.
The areas in which to have such a lifting effect can be either the face or the body. In this case, it is possible on the arms, legs, abdomen, and buttocks.
How the treatment works
The procedure for inserting traction wires is minimally invasive and can also be performed on an outpatient basis.
The doctor, after applying a small local anesthesia, proceeds with the insertion through cannulas of the wires into the areas that need a rejuvenating effect.
Due to the presence of micro-pins, the lifting effect occurs in both directions and is visible immediately after the procedure.
The treatment itself is not painful. Immediately after insertion, the appearance of small swellings can be evidenced, but these disappear within a few days.
The complete healing period is on the order of 2 weeks, but you can resume normal daily activities immediately after treatment.
Extreme sports and direct exposure to sunlight should be avoided for a few days.
Features of traction wires
Undergoing a treatment with traction wires allows one to maintain the naturalness of one’s curves while achieving a rejuvenating effect.
During the procedure, the physician typically inserts up to a maximum of 10 wires.
The inserted threads are often composed of polydiol-oxanone (PDO), a biocompatible material. This means that within a few months they are fully reabsorbed by our bodies without any problems.
Results of the procedure
One of the main advantages of using traction wires is the immediate visibility of results. This is true both in the case of facial treatment but also on the body.
The rejuvenating effect is further facilitated by the production of collagen and elastic fibers that act on the skin progressively a few days after insertion.
To achieve these results, however, it is important to go to a specialized medical center where the person who performs this treatment is qualified and highly trained.
Treatment side effects
Treatment using traction wires carries fewer risks than classical surgical procedures. Possible side effects include:
- Hematoma Formation
Generally, these effects are of limited duration and disappear within a few days.
In case they linger, it is recommended to consult your doctor.
