What is a “Thread Lift” procedure?
Until recently, the only way to correct unwanted drooping skin around the face was with a surgical procedure. Face lifts carry the risk of facial nerve paralysis or palsy. Sub-dermal threads are becoming the preferred non-surgical facelift treatment. Threads offer a visible lift to the skin to correct jowls or drooping cheeks and skin laxity in the neck region as well. The procedure is relatively easy. First, the area of concern is numbed with a local anesthetic. Next, a thread is inserted into the dermal layer of the skin to the area of concern. The thread is then pulled back gently to create a lift and correct unwanted laxity in the skin. The effects can be remarkable with only a few threads.
Threads incite the body to create a “healing reaction” around the thread which stimulates new collagen deposition and further tightens the skin adjacent to the thread. Eventually, the threads will be absorbed by the body but not after lifting and tightening the skin. Because thread lift procedures are much easier than traditional face lifts, they are more affordable.
There is little down time compared with traditional plastic surgery procedures. Most people return to work the next day without any signs of the procedure. Threads are made from biodegradable materials and will be absorbed by the body in 4 to 6 months typically. The results can last for one to three years because of the collagen stimulation in the skin.
