Thread lift is a minimally invasive cosmetic enhancement technique that lifts sagging skin on the face and neck using surgical suture threads. The procedure addresses sign of aging caused by gravity, by restoring the sharper jaw line and V-line of the patient’s youth. With no incisions, patients experience no scarring, and it is a FDA-approved biodegradable material that dissolves completely.
It is a convenient, safe, relatively comfortable, less invasive alternative to traditional facelifts. This innovative facelift procedure can be performed in just one or two hours. It provides modest and subtle changes rather than dramatic results.
Thread lift is non-surgical, safe, relatively comfortable procedure with minimal downtime treatment. The threads are guided along designated contour lines and inserted through small incisions made, the barb-covered threads tighten and lift sagging skin for a more youthful-looking appearance.
During a thread lift, thin threads are inserted into the face through tiny incisions made in the targeted area. These threads attach to the skin tissue and are then pulled back to lift and smooth the face. Almost immediately, treated areas will be raised slightly, eliminating sagging and giving patients a rejuvenated appearance.
There will be some level of discomfort, swelling and bruising around the area after the procedure. This will gradually subside. Patients can also expect to be back to normal activities 2 to 3 days later.
Optimal results could be achieved in 1 to 2 months. Results can last for 1 to 2 years depending on the condition.
