This non-surgical procedure has been referred to as the ’20-minute facelift’, because of its immediate results, along with its minimal downtime. The procedure involves insertion of the Elionce™ thread into the skin or subcutaneous fat depending on the indication, via a very fine needle or specifically designed cannula.
The procedure is quick and simple to carry out and involves no cuts or incisions so there will be no lasting scarring. Injection of tiny amounts of local anaesthetic during thread placement ensures that the patient is comfortable and pain-free. The patient will see immediate results, which will improve during the following days and weeks as Elionce™ and the body start to work by producing collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
This will continue to reverse the effects of ageing and stimulate wrinkle reduction, skin tightening, lifting and improve the overall quality of the skin.
