Gold Reinforcement (facial rejuvenation)|
What is Gold reinforcement?
Gold reinforcement is a procedure involving the implantation of gold threads under the skin. For this purpose special threads are used. Two types of the threads are used: the first type is made of pure 24 carat gold, less than 0.1 mm (0.004 inches) in diameter, and the second type of those is made of polyglycol acid.
Areas other than the face and neck can be reinforced with gold as well. Specialists have received good results implanting gold threads in such areas as skin with post-natal "stretch-marks" and on the breast and stomach, flattening and "tightening" the surrounding skin. The gold reinforcement method has also been shown to be effective in the treatment of cellulite.
The gold thread, interwoven with polyglycol, is placed under the skin with the use of a special device that does not pierce but slides the tissues apart. This device does not penetrate deeply (3-5 mm (0.2 inches)), and this prevents the damage to large vessels and nerves. The specialist creates an invisible web of golden threads under the skin.
Before Gold reinforcement
After Gold reinforcement
In 2-6 weeks, elastic collagen tissue is formed around each gold thread, and this serves as a good matrix for the skin. The polyglycol thread dissolves without a trace in 60 days after the implantation.
Why is gold used?
First of all, gold is bio-inert and is not rejected by the body. Secondly, it leads to the intensification of microcirculation (capillary blood circulation) in adjacent tissues, thus increasing the cells' supply of oxygen and nutrients. The results in considerable improvement in skin tonus, normalization of sebaceous and sweat glands activity, diminishing of wrinkles, improvement of the complexion, disappearance of cuperosis (visible expanded capillary net).
Gold reinforcement is an outpatient procedure that is usually performed under a local anesthesia. General anesthesia is an option as well; the proper type of anesthesia for the Gold Reinforcement procedure will be decided by your surgeon. Following this procedure, the patient rests for 2.5 hours in comfortable surroundings and then undergoes further cosmetological examination.
The effect of rejuvenation from gold thread implantation is visible in 2 months and achieves its maximum in half a year. Its duration varies from 8 to 12 years depending on the individual body type, age, initial state of the skin and patient's way of life.
