What substances are used in the procedure of face reinforcement
The essence of reinforcement is to restore the natural

Once the face reinforcement was made with golden threads.
Now this procedure is performed using:
- hyaluronic biogel;
- polylactic acid;
- calcium hydroxyapatite;
- polycaprolactone-based yarns;
- 3D mesonithy.
Reinforcement based on biogels and bionites is called
bio-reinforcement. In the following, we will use the term
Hyaluronic Gel is a stabilized hyaluronic acid,
which promotes the synthesis of endogenous (self) collagen and
elastin. Getting into the dermis, hyaluronic gel fills sagging and
dips and also stimulates tissue regeneration and
strengthens the skin frame.
Polylactic acid refers to

According to many experts, bio-reinforcement with polylactic acid
has a more pronounced effect.

How does the bio-reinforcement procedure go?

Facial bio-reinforcement with suture material is:

- based on mesothreads.
Polycaprolactone-Based Filaments – Well Known in Medicine

Polycaprolactone is biocompatible with our body, so it’s
the reason there is no rejection or allergic reactions.
Due to these properties, preparations based on it are also popular and

In addition, a big advantage of polycaprolactone is its

Mesothreads are smooth biodegradable filaments based on
polydioxanone (PDO). Polydioxanone is a linear polymer that
when used well slides in tissues, has good

The use of polydioxanone is safe from the point

Mesothreads are often also called microniti, 3D threads, and the technique itself

Mesothreads are injected into the subcutaneous – fatty layer of the skin in the form of a grid.
The thinnest needles easily slide under the skin, minimally damaging

increasing its length, but there may be variations in thickness within

thickness depending on the patient’s age, skin thickness,

In what cases is a facial bio-reinforcement procedure shown?
Bio-reinforcement of the face is carried out in all cases of age
- with ptosis of the oval face:
- with ptosis of nasolabial folds;
- when lowering the corners of the mouth, eyes, eyebrows;
- with deep intense wrinkles;
- deformation of the contour of the chin and lower jaw.
In addition, this procedure is resorted to to increase
some parts of the face (cheeks, cheekbones, chin).
Contraindications to the procedure
Bio-reinforcement has its own contraindications. Not worth it
carry out the procedure in the following cases:
- autoimmune and oncological diseases;
- infectious and chronic diseases in the acute phase;
- allergic diseases;
- idiosyncrasy to actively acting
Only the absence of these contraindications gives success in
implementation of the procedure.
