BOOK YOUR THREAD LIFT NOW!
As we get older our skin tends to show signs of wear, such as sagging due to the loss of collagen. Many people opt for some form of surgery to help keep that youthful look, but there are procedures that are less invasive than going under the knife.
One such procedure is the thread lift, a minimally invasive treatment that doesn't involve surgery and can be done performed in about an hour.
What Is A Thread Lift?
Also referred to as a thread face-lift, this procedure is a less invasive alternative to the traditional face lift. It's a good option for those who are experiencing the early signs of aging, can be performed without anaesthesia, and is normally completed within one to two hours.
The procedure involves inserting thin threads into the face or neck through very tiny incisions. The threads help to pull back the skin, lifting it and giving it a smoother appearance. Results are immediate, with sagging being eliminated and giving the skin a more rejuvenated look.
A thread lift gives longer lasting results than dermal filler treatments and can even be used in a number of areas aside from the face, including the abdomen, neck, or forearms.
The Process of Thread Lift
The thread lift procedure begins with making a tiny notch behind the ear or hairline. A hollow need is then inserted into the skin. The needle has very fine threads with even finer filaments that can attach themselves to the tissue under the skin.
As the needle is withdrawn, these filaments get deposited into the sagging areas. The threads are then tightened to lift sagging skin giving it a smooth and natural look.
There are three different types of thread lifting procedures that can be done; beauty threads, non-surgical thread lifts, and surgical thread lifts.
All of these procedures will help stimulate collagen production.
Surgical Thread Lift
With a surgical thread lift, there are two categories. The free-floating thread lift is when threads are inserted just under the skin and then pulled into place, giving a lifted look. This procedure is done under a local anesthetic and can last 1 to 2 years. Then there is the fixed thread procedure, where threads are attached to the skins connective tissues. This gives a more extreme lifting result and can last between 2 to 4 years.
Non-Surgical Thread Lift
A non-surgical thread lift procedure is suited for 35 to 55-year-olds and if a more subtle discreet option that helps boost collagen production. A local anesthetic is used and the procedure, which can take between 30 minutes to an hour, involves between 4 to 16 threads of different lengths that are pulled up to give the face a lifted look. The results of this procedure can last between 10 months to a year and a half.
A beauty thread lifts can benefit even younger skin due to its collagen-boosting abilities. These threads are shorter and can be placed in batches of up to 100 at a time. The procedure involves a local anesthetic and can take up to 30 minutes with results lasting up to 18 months.
Benefits of Thread Lift Procedure
There are a number of benefits from having a thread lift procedure. It makes the skin look firmer with a rejuvenated appearance, giving the face more defined facial contours.
A youthful look can be achieved without scarring and there is no need for a general anaesthetic. It's also a more affordable option as opposed to having a full face lift. Thread lift procedure will boost the production of collagen in the skin and can be an effective and quick solution for a range of aging skin issues.
