Treating puppet lines
Fortunately, puppet lines are fairly easy to handle, so you can quickly look more brisk and younger and you will immediately feel that way. Puppet lines are wrinkles that arise as a result of aging or because someone has lost a lot of weight in a small period.
During the aging process, the support of the tissue decreases and, as it were, ‘sagging’ occurs. At KNAP Institute we can treat the puppet lines with Fillers, with a Tixel treatment or with the Erbium laser treatment. Puppet lines are often corrected in combination with the nasal lip fold.
With a Filler treatment, the volume can be restored and the lines / folds can be softened. The results are instantly visible. In the Tixel treatment we work with a controlled ablation of the skin so that we are working both deep in the skin and on the skin surface at the same time. In the Erbium laser treatment, the laser radiates (invisible) channels in the skin. Because of these minor injuries, the skin will rebuild from the inside. Both treatments are quite intensive so that we can significantly reduce wrinkles and lines. The TIXEL treatment should always be repeated 4 times because you will evaporate 25% of the skin surface per treatment. In the Erbium laser, several treatments are usually required.
A volume-restoring treatment with fillers can be used for your lips, bags, mouth corners and cheeks. Fillers are injected by means of injections with regular needles and / or a cannula (hollow needle) on the areas to be treated. The inserted gel ensures that the skin gets more volume at the strategic locations. In addition, the skin retains more moisture and looks instant fuller.
The Tixel uses a new concept called Thermo-Mechanical Ablation. This means that a cup (1 cm2) with small titanium pins is shot against the skin very briefly. By means of a short contact time with the skin micro holes are made in the skin and heat is brought deep into the skin. A wound healing process is triggered by the small wounds.
