What is a Thread Lift?
A thread lift is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. This means there is no cutting of the skin as there is with other procedures. The advantages are a minimum of downtime and a significant cost saving compared to traditional treatments. Typically the procedure takes 30 to 45 minutes and you can return home within a few hours.
Threads are inserted gently into the soft tissue of the areas to be lifted with a local anaesthetic used to calm the area and ensure a comfortable experience. The absorbable threads dissolve within 18-24 months, but before they dissolve they create a support scaffolding of collagen for the skin that supports and lifts the skin for many years to come. In addition to the lift effect, a thread lift will create new skin firmness with improved skin colour, skin tone, texture and hydration.
Thread lifts can be used to treat a wide variety of different areas including, smoothing horizontal and vertical forehead wrinkles, lifting the brow and outer eyebrow area and restoring volume to sagging cheeks. They can also smooth lines around the mouth and tighten sagging skin under the lower jaw, lift and rejuvenate various parts of the body.
Results are immediately evident and continued improvement is obvious over the coming months. The benefits of a thread lift can last for several years depending on the areas treated and individual response. Your doctor may also recommend thread lifting in combination with other treatments such as dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections depending on your requirements.
