Thread Lift is a minimally invasive and non-surgical facelift procedure to treat aging signs, such as saggy skin, droopy lids, wrinkles, skin folds, and creases. Thread-like sutures produce a subtle but visible facelift effect canceling any signs of collagen loss. Aging has been an unwanted but unstoppable fact of our lives. We have been trying to find a suitable solution for aging signs for a long time. The earlier famous, traditional surgical procedures such as facelift surgeries, remove a patient’s loose and droopy skin by cutting and stitching up portions. These invasive methods have successfully shown results, but they were aggressively painful and required long recovery times.
Thread lift is an injectable cosmetic procedure that does not involve cutting or stitching the skin. Instead, injectable small thread-like medical fibers tighten the skin and treat skin laxity effectively. The threads are pulled outwards and this slightly lifts and tightens the skin which causes wrinkles and fine lines on the skin surface. Another benefit of thread lifts is that the small incisions that insert the threads into the skin offer an additional benefit by stimulating collagen production in the skin and inducing healing. The result is an instant surge in collagen and elastin production which are crucial in building skin texture.
Thread Lifts: Safe and Effective Facelift with Collagen Restoration
Skin changes occur as we age and lose collagen and elasticity. But with cosmetic treatments like thread lifts, we can target two skin concerns side by side. Firstly, this procedure is an instant solution to saggy and old-looking skin. Secondly, this minimally invasive skin procedure supports collagen production that carries growth factors, essential for the skin’ smoothness and firmness.
Our skin continues to lose collagen as cells reduce its production and regrowth which leads to volume loss. This loss of volume and strength is a large factor in creating excess lines and wrinkles. As the skin grows weaker, it is no longer able to support the tissues that are the base for its firm structure. Various beauty products infuse the skin with fresh collagen doses to reduce looseness and worsening of the skin. However, the continuous collagen lack takes a toll on our skin and it needs more than just some beauty products.
After thread lifts, patients report a gradual but visible improvement in the skin’s tone and texture. While threads stretch the skin to remove folds, the new collagen not only heals the micro-injuries created at the thread-inserting sites but also helps with uneven texture and skin tone. These threads are placed under the skin surface where they are not even noticeable, and the results of this treatment are natural-looking so you do not have to worry about a robotic face post-treatment.
Reasons to Consider Thread Lifts Over Traditional Surgical Facelifts
Thread lifts hold various advantages and have been successful in showcasing visibly reduced aging signs and resolving skin issues. Some of the benefits of thread lifts are as follows:
Reduced Recovery Time
For most individuals, the possibility of recovering instantly or with minimal downtime is one of the greatest and biggest advantages of thread lift procedures. Traditional facelift surgeries are aggressively invasive and mandate long recovery times. Moreover, due to heavy sedation, the patients must arrange for a caretaker and have to need additional assistance. In order to heal, post-facelift patients need some days off work to rest. But on the contrary side, thread lifts are quick, effective, safe, and minimally invasive. They do not require a patient to need additional care, protection, and time to heal.
While some patients will experience a little bit of soreness, redness, and swelling after having a thread lift, most can return to work immediately. There is no need for strong pain medication after having a thread lift, making it easier for patients to return to their normal routine. This procedure is therefore ideal for people with a busy life and demanding careers.
Minimal Post-Treatment Care
Another advantage of thread lift is that, unlike traditional facelift surgeries, the post-treatment care is not too intense. But patients still have to take care of a few things. For instance, it is important to ensure that you don’t rub your face vigorously while cleansing it or applying skincare products for at least a week after having threads placed. You should also try avoiding putting strain and weight on your face while you are sleeping.
Thread lifts are low risk, thanks to their noninvasiveness. There is virtually no risk of scarring, serious bruising, bleeding, or other severe complications after having a thread lift. In extremely rare cases, patients may experience irritation, infection, or their medical gauzes/threads become visible under their skin. If this occurs, however, the sutures can simply be removed and the patient’s face will return to its prior state.
