Use of barbed threads in semi-invasive procedure for rejuvenation of the inferior orbital zone

The work below is about the treatment to improve the appearance in the inferior orbital area. As the skin age, the orbital area loses its elasticity. The lack of elasticity brings to the loss of the previous support of the tissues, generating, flattening and depression in this area. For this zone, there have been two fundamental treatments: Surgical by Blepharoplasty and Infiltrative using hyaluronic acid gel. For many years the approach to this region was exclusively by surgical procedure by the intervention of inferior blepharoplasty. The biggest disadvantage of this procedure is in the possible complications inherent in all surgical acts. With the advent of Infiltrative technique with hyaluronic acid gel, the rejuvenation of this area is no longer the exclusive competence of plastic surgeons and ophthalmologists. The correction by injection is practiced with the same substances used on other parts of the face, the suggested techniques are however not sufficiently encoded and so sometimes, unfortunately, the accidental injection of filler into blood vessels can cause very serious complications. The procedure that I intend to show is the treatment of an inferior orbital area with Threads. The Threads used to allow to implant several wires in PDO with a diameter ranging from (6.0 - 7.0 USB) that run outside the cannula needle. So there will a volumetric action for the production of collagen plus a redensifying action for mechanical stimulus, increasing the production of fibrous proteins. The insertion of these threads into the thin layer of the dermis of this delicate region has a tension effect on the skin that gives an indirect effect with a reduction of the typical effect of the tired face.
