ThreadLift is a specialized cosmetic procedure used to achieve a face lift without surgery. ThreadLift is minimally invasive procedure that is perform in the office and requires only local anesthesia.
What is ThreadLift?
ThreadLift is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to tighten sagging skin around the face and neck. The procedure utilizes small threads made out of polydioxanone (PDO) which is the same material used to create dissolving sutures.
These very thin threads are inserted under the skin, and are used to manually reposition the skin to create a tightening effect.
How ThreadLift Works?
PDO thread lift is a procedure that involves the insertion of a blunt-tip cannula with a very fine absorbable polydioxanone threads into the skin or the subcutaneous fat of the specific areas to be treated. The use of a blunt-tip cannula provides lower risks of bruising and swelling as it does not damage any blood vessels during the procedure.
Why do I need ThreadLift Treatment?
ThreadLift is primarily used to address sagging skin and loss of skin elasticity in the face and neck. This procedure is to lift sagging cheeks, reduce the appearance of jowls, tighten the forehead, and lift the eyebrows.
Although this procedure can also be used to improve sagging skin in the neck, it cannot address vertical muscle bands, which require a neck lift to be removed.
Does ThreadLift Hurt?
No, the procedure is very comfortable and typically don’t feel any discomfort due to the local anesthetic.Further, due to the decreased trauma to skin and underlying tissues, the recovery from this treatment is much more comfortable than from a surgical face lift.
Who are the candidates for FaceLift?
People who are in their 30s to 60s and have relatively good skin tone. Those who are beginning to experience sagging in their face or neck but do not have excessively loose skin or drooping facial areas. If signs of aging are relatively minimal, a thread lift may be a good way to make cosmetic enhancements while avoiding facelift scarring.
