What is it?

The tensor threads are threads that are inserted under the skin can lift the eyebrows and cheeks, firm the neck and blur wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes. The threads are reabsorbable, so it is an excellent option to treat these signs of aging.


The benefits of the tensor threads are multiple:

  • The results are immediate and a facial rejuvenation effect is achieved that can last for years.
  • The effect achieved on the face is very natural, the threads are not visible and the facial expression is maintained.
  • With tensor threads, the natural production of collagen in the skin is stimulated, which contributes to the long-lasting effect of the treatment.
  • It can be applied as many times as necessary and can be complemented with other aesthetic treatments.

How and for what?

Tightening threads are inserted under the skin. To do this painlessly and safely, local anesthesia is applied and the threads are placed with a fine needle to achieve skin tightening. The effects of the tensor threads will be evident immediately and the definitive result is obtained when the collagen and new elastin are finished forming, between 1 and 2 months after the treatment.


The results are very natural and can last for years.

Post Treatment

To perform the treatment, no hospitalization or preparation for the treatment is required. The procedure does not require subsequent rest. The tensor threads are reabsorbed naturally in 6 to 8 months and do not cause allergies.
