Thread lifts are a minimally invasive, less drastic alternative to surgical facelifts. This low-risk procedure tightens the skin by threading medical-grade filaments under the skin, then gently pulling them upwards to tighten the selected area.
Thread lifts work in two ways. First of all, your physician physically lifts your skin upwards with the thin, dissolvable sutures - this can be administered on the forehead, neck, or torso. Invisible and painless barbs on the threads grip onto skin to ensure skin and muscle lift smoothly and evenly.
Then, once the threads are inserted and lifted, your body’s natural healing response takes over. Your body reacts to the sutures as it would a minor injury, prompting collagen production in the affected area that will fill out sagging skin and restore youthful, plumped elasticity to the face.
While thread lifts are low-risk with minimal recovery time, patients should still be prepared for possible side effects like redness, bruising and swelling. The procedure is performed in about 45 minutes, and if necessary, patients can return to work as soon as it is completed. As with many cosmetic procedures, choosing a trained, licensed and reputable physician is key to a safe thread lift that delivers the results you want.
