Thread Lifting is a non-surgical, no scar facelift performed using tiny surgical sutures or threads. Multi-strand threads used are made of material-synthetic absorbable sterile surgical suture composed of Polydioxanone, which performs a role as scaffolds helping cells to be attached well.
This procedure is down to its simplicity and the time it takes to carry out. Your body starts to produce new bundles of collagen which surround each thread and this in turn creates a subtle yet effective lift. Stem cells or PRP are injected along with the multi-strand threads to maximize activation of cell culture within the body that increases effects. The results differ for each person, but look very natural giving a rejuvenated and refreshed look. There is no scaring and recovery times are a lot less than those associated with traditional surgery.
Who is good candidate for thread lift?
A thread lift is more suited to men and women between the ages of 25 and 70. The procedure is most effective on skin that has minimal sagging and offers the best results for cheeks, jowls, brows and the neck area. If you are looking for results that are more effective and long lasting than Botox and other fillers, then a thread lift is the ideal choice. If you are put off by traditional surgery or don’t want general anaesthetic then a thread lift is great as it is minimally invasive and can be carried out under local anaesthetic.
How long do the results last?
A thread lift’s lasting power depends on the age of the patient at the time of procedure and how much sagging the thread lift has corrected. It should be noted that sagging will return over time, but many doctors report that the results last for anything between 2-3 years. To extend the results it is possible to have additional threads inserted and your doctor can advise you when this is required.
