Thread Lift uses tiny sutures to mechanically lift skin, contract fat tissue, and stimulate cellular renewal. The result is a natural-looking tightening effect that takes years away from your age almost immediately.
Thread Lift treatments can lift sagging skin on your face and neck by introducing medically developed soft threads into the skin tissue to hold it in place to achieve the desired lift effect. Your body will also start to generate new bundles of collagen surrounding the threads, producing firmer and younger looking skin. Long lasting results (2-3 years) can be achieved quickly without any visible scars, and will continue to improve as the threads dissolve.
You will observe a lifting effect almost immediately after treatment. Results will be obvious after 2-3 months and will continue to improve as the threads dissolve over 12 months.
Results are known to last 2-3 years but may vary from patient to patient due to the ageing process.
Depending on the lifting effect you would like to achieve, multiple threads will be strategically placed into your skin using sterile acupuncture needles. The threads will act as a frame for new collagen and will lift sagging tissue. There will only be injections and no incisions for this procedure. A topical anesthetic cream will also be applied to numb and minimize any discomfort.
Depending on the nature of the sagging skin, threads may be more suitable for certain types of changes. Threads can also help to achieve a more dramatic effect as it mechanically lifts the skin. Both treatments have great longevity and results, and our medical team can advise which is most appropriate for you during your free consultation.
