Non-surgical methods are becoming more popular day by day in the treatment of sagging in the face area over time. Among these methods, we apply rope applications quite frequently. The types of threads used are increasing and new application techniques are being developed. In this article, we will talk about the features of the “Lock Strap” method, which is one of the non-surgical thread lift methods.
Our expectation from non-surgical methods; The results are successful, that is, close to surgery, and the results are long-lasting. We see that this expectation can be met with the “LOCK HANGER” method, which is a method that has just started to be applied in our country in the treatment of mild and moderate sagging on the face.
The threads used are manufactured in France. The product has a CE certificate.
The sides of the “LOCK HANGER” method that are different from other methods;
– The threads used are permanent. Therefore, the application life is longer. (5-7 years)
– Threads can stretch by 20%. Therefore, it does not cause breakage in ropes or changes in mimics. Results are permanent.
– The threads hold onto the soft tissue in a strong and gentle manner. In this way, an effective hanging process is made.
Years after the application, the ropes can be stretched again and re-tightening can be done.
Application areas of “LOCK HANGER”;
– Nasolabial fold treatment
– Treatment of marionette lines
– Recovery of sagging in the jaw line
– Brow lift
– Creation of face oval
“LOCK HANGER” application does not require operating room conditions. It is applied in about 30 minutes. Since local anesthesia is applied during the procedure, it is a comfortable application for the patients. Thanks to the special elastic needles integrated into the threads, the risk of damaging the tissue is almost non-existent.
People who have the application return to their daily life within a few days. Antibiotic treatment is recommended for 1 week after the procedure. After the application, mild edema and a few needle entry sites are observed. These findings regress in 1 week and it is generally not understood that the procedure was performed when viewed from the outside. After the application, tension may be felt in the areas where the ropes are located during sudden movements and jaw movements. These findings usually disappear after the 2nd week.
It is not recommended to lie face down for 1 month after the procedure, to eat hard foods such as apple-skinned foods, to make exaggerated mimic movements, and to movements that require the jaw to be opened too much.
