Thread Lift (facial threading) is a process of going underneath the skin and “stitching” up specific areas with tiny threads. A needle is inserted under the skin at a curved angle to lift the skin and the threads go through the needle. The threads that are used for facial threading are the same ones that are used for surgical procedures. This procedure has been around for about 2 decades and is becoming more and more popular in the recent years. Facial threading allows you to revive your face without any surgical procedures. This procedure helps to stimulate collagen production and rebuild tissues, helping to smooth out wrinkles. This lift is a safe and effective process that helps to reduce sagging in the face that starts to form as you age.
Facial threading can treat the following:
- Loose skin
- Sagging eyebrows
- Facial skin laxity
- Nasolibial folds
Benefits of Thread Lift
In addition to stimulating collagen production for your skin, thread lifting has other benefits as
well. Benefits of thread lifting include:
- Instant recovery
- Skin looks tighter
- Reduced wrinkles and fine lines
- Revives your skin
- Short operation
- Immediate results
The thread lift process takes anywhere between 15 minutes to an hour. You can get a thread lift
in any part of your face including your cheeks, neck, crow’s feet, and eyebrows. Patients usually
come in for one treatment but after several months, your doctor might recommend another
Recovery and Results
The recovery time for thread lifts is much more reduced than facelifts and you can continue doing just about anything after your procedure. With facial threading, the results are seen
immediately after the procedure, which you can’t receive from surgical procedures. Results are for other procedures can take up to 6 months which can be hard for some patients. Thread lifts
have a low risk of scarring or swelling after the procedure. You may want to avoid touching your face and applying products on your skin. Because thread lifts are not as dramatic as facelifts, the
results last for about 1-3 years. Some patients return every couple of years to receive the procedure again to keep their skin looking tighter.
