A look at Thread Facelifts

If you've experienced sagging skin on the face & neck it's likely you've considered a facelift. As we age the skin produces less collagen and reveals fine lines & wrinkles seemingly overnight. The sound of an invasive facelift may sound intimidating which is why thousands have chosen to do a very popular, non-invasive treatment called a "Thread Facelift" so what is it and what kind of result do they provide? Let's explore!

What is a thread facelift?

A thread facelift is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that provides an alternative to a traditional facelift. During the procedure, medical-grade thread is used to pull up the skin by tightening the thread. This advanced thread technology lifts and repositions facial skin that has lost its elasticity and is sagging. Thread lifts have been around since the 1990's but as the thread lift has evolved it's gained popularity by individuals who want facelift results without the facelift. Sometimes called the "lunchtime lift" because it uses a quicker and less invasive method than that of the conventional facelift, while still producing visible results. The thread lift typically targets areas on the face & Décolleté to treat:

  • Jowls

  • Sagging eyebrows

  • Drooping cheeks

  • Under-eye area

What are PDO threads?

PDO threads (Polydioxanone threads) are one of the most commonly used threads in these types of facelifts. Have you ever cut yourself & had to have stitches? These threads are similar! PDO threads stimulate natural collagen production in the skin just by being inserted. They are advanced medical-grade thread that is thinner than hair and made of protein. You won't have to go back to get them removed as they dissolve in the skin over 2 weeks to a month. Overall these threads provide more elastic texture with fewer lines and wrinkles

How does a thread facelift work?

This procedure works by threading thin, dissolvable sutures underneath your skin. Then your doctor is able to pull your skin tight around your forehead, neck, or torso. Once the thread is inserted it triggers your body's healing response. This tricks your body into stimulating collagen in the area the thread is inserted.

How is it different from a traditional facelift?

Both traditional & thread facials are made to target aging skin & give you a more youthful appearance. The biggest differentiating factor is that a traditional facelift costs significantly more and takes more time. The results of the thread lift are temporary lasting an average of 3-9months. The recovery time with a thread lift is also significantly less.

Benefits of a thread lift

This procedure how grown in popularity for a reason. Here are some of the benefits of a thread facelift:

  • Instant lifted results of the skin

  • Boosts the body’s natural production of collagen

  • Requires no general anesthetic

  • Minimal recovery time

  • More affordable

  • Relatively painless

  • Quick procedure that takes less than an hour
