Thread Facial/ Neck Lifting
What is a thread lift?
A thread lift is a rejuvenation procedure for the face and neck that is less invasive than traditional facelift surgery. It is more convenient, involves less risk and is less expensive.
Why is it performed?
It is performed to reduce skin sagging and volume loss in the brows, cheeks, jaws and neck.
How is the procedure performed?
The thread lift procedure does not require any general anesthesia or hospitalization and can be completed in 1-2 hours. Your doctor will evaluate your skin and mark areas where special threads will be inserted to lift and volumize the skin. The threads are inserted through small incisions or puncture sites in a barely noticeable manner. Barbs or hooks on the threads hold the skin in place. The threads used may be absorbed by the body. Contour Lift, a type of thread lift procedure uses clear, non-absorbable threads.
Who is an ideal candidate for the procedure?
A thread lift is ideal for those in their 30s to 60s who have minor facial aging without excessive looseness or drooping skin.
How soon can I expect to see results?
You can expect immediate results which continue to improve for the next 12 months since the procedure stimulates the production of collagen.
