In our time, there are many methods that allow getting rid of the first signs of aging: wrinkles, reducing the elasticity of the skin, etc. When the first wrinkles were barely visible, a special cream-lifting can help, but to remove deep wrinkles this effect is not enough – the surgeon-cosmetologist needs intervention. What to do if the mask and creams do not help, and do not want to lie down on the operating table?
In such cases, beauticians can recommend alternative methods, in particular, the implantation of gold threads, helping to rejuvenate the skin, give it firmness, get rid of wrinkles.
This method of rejuvenation consists in introducing thin gold threads into the skin at the subdermal level (24 karat gold sample), sometimes combined with polyglycolic filament to increase the implant strength.
золо Gold threads are implanted either in the direction of wrinkles and deep folds and under them, or are applied in the form of a grid to correct larger areas with fine wrinkles and other defects. The effect of this operation lasts from 5 to 10 years.
On the implantation of gold threads, as well as other cosmetic procedures, there are many myths and misconceptions. Let’s try to figure out which of them correspond to reality.
This procedure has long been obsolete, in the modern world abandoned the methods of rejuvenation, which were used in the times of the pharaohs.
Indeed, archaeological excavations in Egypt’s tombs found thin gold threads in the area of the skull of mummies. But it is not known for certain exactly how these threads were used, scientists could not determine whether they were an ornament or an implant. In Europe (especially in Spain and France) and in the CIS countries, this technique appeared not so long ago – at the end of the last century, and enjoys quite a lot of popularity.
Implanted gold threads, I can do without lifting.
This is not quite true. After all, threads can help only at a certain stage – at a time when wrinkles are not yet very deep (the optimal age for the application of this method is 35-40 years). Through the introduction of gold threads, we force the body to grow a new connective tissue, more elastic and elastic than the one already available, to activate volumetric blood flow, as a result, the skin looks much better, but with strong sagging and deep wrinkles, this method is ineffective. It should be remembered that the effects of aging are not eliminated, but to prevent sagging and wrinkles, such a procedure is possible.
Gold-plated, not gold threads are used for this operation.
Mistaken opinion – gold threads, high sample – 999.9, and the percentage of impurities is minimal.
Golden threads can cause allergies.
No, because gold is one of the most hypoallergenic metals, it does not cause any chemical reactions in the body, and consequently, the cause of the allergy can not become.
The operation of implanting the threads is very painful and traumatic.
This is an erroneous opinion. When implanting gold threads, no incisions are made. Only skin punctures are made with an atraumatic needle with a special trihedral grinding that opens the skin in the form of three petals in the puncture zone. After passing the needle, the “petals” close, leaving no trace. In addition, the use of anesthesia guarantees a complete absence of pain.
It is enough for one operation to keep the effect for life.
Yes, threads will remain for life, but one operation is unlikely to be enough. The effect of implantation of gold threads can last from 4-5 to 10 years (depending on age, skin type, physique, etc.), after this time the procedure should be repeated, laying new threads in other directions. It should be noted that the more threads, the more noticeable the result and the longer the effect of implantation remains.
After implantation of gold threads, side effects are possible (facial asymmetry, metal rejection, severe inflammation).
This is not quite true. Inflammation can occur only if the operation was performed under non-sterile conditions. The effect of rejection, as is known, can only be on a foreign protein. Since gold is an inorganic material, the antigen-antibody reaction does not occur. Asymmetry of the face can occur only if the facial nerve is damaged (which is almost impossible with a needle used for implantation). Just some patients after the operation begin to meticulously study their appearance and the natural asymmetry present in each of us, they are mistaken for the consequences of implantation. Therefore, in order to avoid unpleasant incidents, patients are photographed before the procedure and fully explain the essence and consequences of implantation.
Filaments sometimes appear through the skin.
This is a misconception. After all, the thickness of the threads is only 0.1 mm. And since they are laid down to a depth of about 3 mm between the dermis (actually the skin) and the subcutaneous tissue, where the connective tissue is enveloped, there can be no question of the translucence effect.
Golden threads are the best way to get rid of wrinkles.
Indeed, the threads introduced along the lines of wrinkles stimulate the production of their own collagen and elastin, making the skin more elastic. But this method is not effective in all cases. For example, in the fight against “goose paws” it is better to use botox or dysport. To get rid of deep mimic wrinkles and folds use fillers (gels), grinding, dermabrasion. Fine wrinkles help to make less visible pilling.
The yarn is very fragile.
Yes, gold is a soft material, and gold threads break through lines of natural mimicry. It is this property that allows mimicry to remain alive and natural.
After the implantation of gold threads for a long time will have to comply with many prohibitions, refuse cosmetic procedures, etc.
Yes, some restrictions do exist. For example, during two to three months it is better to refrain from visiting the sauna or sauna (until swelling is over), the beach or the solarium (until the bruises go off, so as not to cause the appearance of pigmentation). Daily skin care (creams, masks) must necessarily take place, but from cosmetic procedures with the use of devices operating on direct currents, it is really better to refrain.
Golden threads can only be implanted in the skin of the face.
This is not true. Threads can be used in the décolleté area, the neck area, to correct the skin of the hands, legs, abdomen, buttocks, etc. But it should be remembered that neither to remove (or add) the volume of subcutaneous fat, nor to get rid of cellulite with gold threads will not succeed. Immediately after implantation, my skin will become elastic, wrinkles will disappear. This is not true. Only in 2-4 months the result will be noticeable, and it can be fully estimated only after six months.
