Thread Facial/ Neck Lifting
What is a thread lift?
A thread lift is a rejuvenation procedure for the face and neck that is non- surgical treatment. To compare with a traditional face/neck lift surgery, it is more convenient and is less cost.
Why is it performed?
It is performed to reduce skin sagging and volume loss in the brows, cheeks, jaws and neckregion
How is the procedure performed?
The thread lift procedure does not require any general anaesthesia 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 needle puncture sites in a barely noticeable manner. Barbs or hooks on the threads hold the skin in place. The threads used will be absorbed by your body in 12-24 months in average for our APTOS thread. But for contour lift, a type of thread will be used, could be a clear, non-absorbable threads. You need to discuss with your doctor in your consultation before your thread lift procedure, to make sure which type of thread you may need for your treatment.
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.
