Have you heard of a minimally invasive thread lift? Thread Lifting is a non-surgical, no-scar facelift that uses tiny surgical sutures or threads to perform a facelift. It is sometimes known as the “lunchtime lift” due to the minimally invasive procedure, alluding to the fact that you could almost do it over your lunch break and go back to work afterward. Minimally invasive facelift options have become more of a norm amongst people who prefer not to undergo a drastic procedure or surgery, but want to rejuvenate the look of their skin.
How Does Thread Lifting Work?
The tiny threads used in a thread lifting procedure are made of material-synthetic absorbable sterile surgical sutures composed of Polydioxanone (PDO) and Polycaprolactone (PCL). This is a fancy way of saying that these threads are used as scaffolding to help cells attach well. The latest threads used in thread lifting procedures give a better lift, last longer, and continue to increase the effect as time goes on.
But how does the lift occur? Once the threads are in place, your body will actually begin to produce new bundles of collagen (yes, youth’s best friend) which surround each thread. This creates a subtle yet effective lift. In order to maximize the lift effect, PRP and Ozone are injected along with the threads. This maximizes the activation of the cell culture within the body and therefore increases the effects. The results are a very natural-looking facelift!
Who Should Try a Minimally Invasive Thread Lift?
Have you been looking for something more effective and longer-lasting than Botox and other fillers? Thread lifting may be the right treatment for you! The procedure works best on skin that’s experiencing minimal sagging and is most effective for cheeks, jaws, brows, and the neck area. Also, both men and women can benefit from it.
So how long exactly does a thread lift last? Well, as with most anti-aging procedures, it depends on the age of the patient and how much their skin was sagging. However, thread lifting procedure results have been known to last up to 3 years!
How Can I Enhance My Minimally Invasive Thread Lift?
If you’re looking to enhance your thread lift to get the best results, fillers and fat transfer can be combined with a thread lift procedure. If you want to combine fat transfer, this requires harvesting some of your own adipose tissue (fat cells) through a mini-liposuction procedure. These fat cells are then injected into the face to increase your face’s volume, and also to create new scaffolds and vessel formation because adipose tissue contains stem cells.
You can also have additional threads inserted to extend the results, which your doctor can advise you on.
What Other Minimally Invasive Facelift Options Are There?
If you’re looking for another minimally invasive facelift option before making a decision, take a look at Ultra V HIFU Plus Lifting. Ultra V Lift with HIFU works by targeting the layers of the skin below the surface. It does so by first causing damage to cells by heating them rapidly. The damage triggers collagen fiber production, which provides added structure and elasticity to the skin. It is delivered directly through the top layers of skin, without needles or incisions. Anesthetics and/or numbing cream is also not required.
